OutDry™ Extreme is our first ever waterproof and breathable fabric technology constructed with a waterproof layer on the outside and soft, wicking fabric inside. Traditional raingear uses interior waterproof membranes which don't allow for air flow, and water-repellent coating that degrades over time. With OutDry™ Extreme, the rugged exterior is an incredibly water-tight membrane with millions of microscopic perforations that let water vapor escape through a wicking membrane directly fused to the shell.

Part of the Titanium line, and one of our most technical shells, the OutDry Ex Diamond Shell is a waterproof, breathable, sweat-wicking rain killer that is fully seam-sealed with bold, external seam tape and that features 2-way, underarm venting. Abrasion resistant shoulders, articulated elbows, contoured cuffs and drawcord adjustable hem featuring advanced, silicone grippers all make this jacket ready for some serious alpine action.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Men’s OutDry™ Ex Diamond Shell Jacket This is my 3rd review of OutDry jackets, all are men large with 3 outdry jackets fit differently. Men’s OutDry™ Ex Diamond Shell Jacket pit to pit measure 25" laid flat can be worn over ski jacket, sleeves extend down to palms, sleeve cuff velcro is not very strong. Tarp like sound and feel when walking around. Zinc color is color of blue jeans, OutDry jacket is waterproof. OutDry™ Ex Stretch Hooded Shell pit to pit 24" laid flat, thickness of leather jacket can not be worn over ski jacket tightest fitting jacket of the 3 OutDry jackets. Black is grey in color. Cannot be worn over soft shell jacket or fleece jacket due to thickness of jacket. I should of order a XL but 2 other OutDry jackets can be worn over ski jacket. Men’s OutDry™ Ex Reversible Jacket pit to pit 24" laid flat, thickness of cycling jacket shell can be worn over ski jacket. Zinc is dark blue color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Farewell GoreTex I bought this jacket last year and I love it!! I put this jacket through every winter condition imaginable last year - from fast, icy Stowe groomers to rainy Mt Hood spring conditions. It quickly became my standard kit and I took it on a week-long heli trip to BC in early March. Because the membrane is on the outside, the moisture never sticks to the coat. Wet, heavy snow sluffs off and rain/melt beads so the jacket ends up feeling light and dry even when the conditions are anything but. This is so important on heli trips because you are sitting in the chopper melting and getting wet between each run. GoreTex gets wet and then freezes as soon as you are back out in the cold making the jacket stiff and it never dries out. I think OUtdry packs better and runs a little bit warmer than you typical 3-layer Gore jacket. I wear nothing but a long sleeve T under this jacket all the way down to 15 degrees, where with my Patagonia/Burton jackets I would always wear fleece. Outdry is definitely next gen material and highly recommend this coat. Spencer

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Thru-Hiker's Perspective I used this jacket for the duration of my 2016 Pacific Crest Trail thru-hike. It is COMPLETELY waterproof and does not wet out. It works exactly as advertised, and held up admirably after exposure to rocks, ice, briars, sticks, etc. The pit zips are excellent for uphill exertion, and it breathed well enough to use for mosquito armor in Yosemite. Layered atop a Heatzone jacket, it allowed me to hike all day in a freezing rain/sleet storm in the Cascades that left my companions miserable. My only complaints are that the shoulder reinforcing patches delaminated a bit by the end of the trail, and there were a number of stray threads that loosen around the zippers. Columbia fully warrantied their product and I give them my highest recommendation. As for the detractors saying it's too flashy, I wore the Hyper Blue color with bling abound and never thought twice about it. This is a performance piece, not a fashion statement, and that loudness might be what allows rescuers to find you if you go all 127 Hours. Two thumbs up, Columbia!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Waterproof is an A+ but quality is an F This jacket is extremely waterproof which is great but the good things really end there, for what you get this jacket is overpriced the quality on these jackets are terribly low, the pocket zippers are cheap plastic which will definitely break, and they arent sewed together very well, after a few open and closes threads start to come out and the pockets start to open up which probably means they wont stay waterproof for long the emblems are glued on and after a wash or 2 im pretty positive they will start to peel off the terrible quality in these jackets are becoming known, with just a little bit of searching you can find the EX diamond for a price of about 250-300, way cheaper than Columbia sells them this is upsetting as Columbia is my go to store for outdoor clothing, ill definitely still shop at Columbia but my recommendation will be to wait a bit longer before buying this jacket, i believe prices will go down even more because for such a lack of quality you cant ask a high price point like this and this is becoming clear to outdoor gear retailers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worn Rim to Rim at the Grand Canyon on Memorial Day While I only wore it for the first two hours, the surprise was how warm it was in 30 degree windy weather! As you may have read, the arms are extraordinarily long and the aluminum-like decor is totally unnecessary. After that, I cannot imagine a better water-proof / windproof jacket. The finish detail is exquisite, especially on the inside, and the handsome look "rocks"! I can't wait to wear it on my 14ers in Colorado in July!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Most waterproof jacket I've ever had, some room for functional improvement Living in Juneau, AK, with 60+ inches of rain annually, I need a durable jacket that can stand up to everything from the commute to work to the mountain ridges. So far, this jacket feels bulletproof. I've yet to have it start to wet-out in any areas, usually the shoulders and around the sleeve cuffs start first. The fabric feels (and sometimes sounds) like tarp material: It's a little more rigid/rubbery than other gore-tex jackets, but it works like a dream, so it doesn't bother me too much. Pit zips are good. It's a little heavier construction, and as a result seems to hold more heat than lighter rain jackets. My biggest criticism is the hood. There's no way to tighten the bill around my face, blows off my head if walking into the wind, and doesn't turn with my head. Others have mentioned the chrome accents being a little too much. I would tend to agree. The design with accented, sealed seams and black shoulders is flashy as-is. The embossed chrome does not tone it down by any means.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Jacket The Diamond Outdry jacket is the best rain jacket I've ever had. The thing is amazing, and has been well executed. Everything from the chin guard to the Wicking fabric is designed with the wearer in mind. My only problem is that there is such a gap in the price between this and the platinum. If the Diamond was priced somewhere around $300 - $350 I think it would've been perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps you Dry! After using several different Columbia rain jackets with less than stellar results this one seems to be the real deal. I wasn't sold on the color scheme (white was the only color available in my size) but if you can get past that it's an excellent jacket. A little stiffer than some of the others but a professional outdoor photographer you want your clothing and gear to preform how they were designed to and this jacket will keep you dry!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from too much bling Great product, comfortable fit and though I've yet to be caught in foul weather I'm looking forward to it. However, the design team got a little carried away with their flagship design. Theres far too much metallic logo work going on here, almost to the point that I returned it. Just tone it down, I dont want to be a walking advertisement for columbia

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Awesome jacket, too much bling! Definitely a fan of the technology, but didn't end up keeping it because of all the chrome accents. They were too flashy and looked cheap. Looks awesome other than the chrome! Its a very well built jacket, looks like it would hold up well against some abuse on the mountain!
