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.

This truly nautical jacket is fully seam-sealed and features OutDry Extreme waterproof/breathable technology with bold, external taping and zippered vents on the sides. This jacket has a lower-front, waterproof pocket with a touchscreen-compatible screen. This pocket can be zipped off and moved to the left forearm or to the inside. Waterproof chest pockets feature Velcro plackets with utility and the sleeves feature neoprene cuffs that cinch-up snug and keep your arms dry. Abrasion-resistant overlays and 360° reflectivity, make this highly technical and lightweight jacket one of our very best.

Men's PFG Force 12™ Jacket is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish I Could Wear it MORE! Love the features, the design, the construction, the way the soft-touch inside feels on the bare skin (not clammy), the giant zippered vents, the neoprene cuffs-- the only thing is that I have a size large, and while I might wear a large in some things, I can literally wear a full down parka underneath and still have room to layer more. Maybe if there was a waist cinch--? As it is, I wish that I had gotten a medium, or maybe even a small, but as it was a gift, I didn't get the chance to choose. The way the coat fits now is like a loose snowboarding shell, which isn't bad, but just isn't the most practical for hiking and working in, so it stays in the closet more than I'd like. My partner calls it my "fireman coat" because of the silhouette. The construction is bombproof, and while the hood adjustment could be more customizable, it works well enough. Love the waterproof pockets, would have preferred a zipper instead of the velcro with the flapover so it's easier to get things in and out and not so noisy, as well. Love that the handpockets are waterproof when open, so that I have a place to put my hands but I'm not worried that I'll get spray underneath. The neoprene sleeves make it easy to both cinch up the sleeves to get my hands in the water, and also to fully cinch up the cuffs to keep water out. Love the reflective bits, interested to see how long they hold up. Construction-wise, this is up there with the best brands--nautical, mountaineering, or otherwise. Just make sure you get the right size!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great product from Columbia Sportswear So I have put this jacket to the test in the last two weeks guiding in SE Alaska. We have gotten 10 inches of rain in the last 16 days. I have worn this jacket every day it's rained. I couldn't be happier. It moves well, has enough room for lairs, is tough, packable, breaks the wind nicely, and most importantly not a drop of moisture underneath. I am thoroughly impressed. When I bought I thought it was a little large. Im 5"11 235lbs. With a sweatshirt underneath and combining it with the Force 12 bibs, I can't imagine a better rain suit. I highly recommend this to any serious fisherman that will be exposed to the elements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate Rain Gear This is a awesome jacket. The features, quality of the design, fit, and materials are unsurpassed. First, it's beefy -- that is to say durable, and well made. Features include interior wrist fit neopreme cuffs that keep the water out, completely. And double sealed dry pockets, plus a moveable windowed DRY pouch - for phone etc. And I love how it wears and looks. Thought the yellow may be too hot, but its not. Looks cool. Total quality and worth the money. Bibs are awesome too if you need real fowl weather gear, like I do. Get them while they're available. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Rain Jacket I have worn It is the best rain jacket I have ever put on. Very comfortable and well made. Plenty of pockets and the zippers seem to be very durable. The jacket runs slightly big. I ordered a large and it is borderline big and I wear XL t-shirts.
