Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Watertight II Jacket - A Great Year Round Jacket I live in the Pacific Northwest where it rains a lot and the average temperature is mild, so to have a lightweight jacket that you can wear year round that is waterproof and breathes is ideal. The nicest thing about this lightweight jacket is its ability to breathe. When I are moving around in it and my body is starting to warm up, I am not sweating in the jacket like with others that I have had because of Columbia's Omni - Tech design which makes the jacket waterproof, but also breathable. I also like that the jacket has a hood that lays nicely on the back with easy access to it, that it goes well with jeans or slacks and that it is very reasonably priced. This is my second Watertight II jacket and it is my year round go to jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Rain Coat Ever This is absolutely the best raincoat I have ever owned. Fit is perfect and it keeps me dry and wind free. I take it everywhere. I am going to buy another in a different color I like it so much. The size can be hard to find but I have found several on the Web site. Also a rewards member saved shipping, gotta love that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I couldn't be happier with my rain coat. It is perfect for Florida weather and is 100% waterproof just like it says. I was working in the pouring down rain with wind and the water and it doesn't get through. You can even have your arm in water on your window ledge without the water soaking through. The jacket is very breathable and just all around comfortable even in the hottest of days. Thank you for such a quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I bought this for my husband. He travels a good bit and needed a rain jacket that was lightweight, but durable. This jacket was perfect. It added the waterproof protection he needed without the bulk of other jackets he has had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BUY! Lightweight rain jacket suitable for all but winter wear. Multiple pocket options; velcro and zipper fasterners for jacket and sleeves. Waterproof as promised. Would also make a good wind jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps rain out, keeps sweat in. While this jacket has the breathability of a Hefty garbage bag, it does keep you dry, more or less. For this price, Gore Tex it ain't. And although this garment is admittedly at a killer price-point, it is missing common, expected features such as shock cord around the waist, an inside pocket or even a #8 coil zipper. (It appears to be a #5 or low quality) However, if you're looking for a rain jacket in larger sizes at a low price, this one will work fine, just with fewer features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best raincoat I have been looking for quality a raincoat, and I found it! This coat sheds water, and is very breathable. Not too hot, even on warm humid days. I bought a 3XL, and found it to fit a bit big. This works out great so I can wear a sweater on cold night. Excellent! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used in Ireland Purchased this jacket for a trip to Ireland. The jacket was perfect. Fit as I had hoped and kept me dry the entire time. We walked the Cliffs of Moher three times from the fishing village of Doolin to the Cliffs visitor center (3hr walk). Rain and sun mix were the norms. Weight and quality of jacket could not have been better. The jacket was the best investment I made for the trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says. If you're looking for a lightweight waterproof jacket, this one is as good as advertised. I was worried about being too warm in the jacket when I'm not out in the elements (like waiting in a subway station) but that really hasn't been the case so far. Also, the very large side pockets are a plus. I will say that it does run a bit large (I bought the same size as my Columbia winter coat which fits true to size), especially the hood, so be aware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value and Quality I am a 3XL and it is difficult to find a jacket for a big man that has style and hasn't just been pattern-graded up from a slim style. This jacket is one of the best I have ever owned and completely waterproof. I will buy other colors and you should too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great travel jacket Bought this as jacket for travel. Nice and light and packs well. I followed the advice given previously and ordered a size up from normal. Only thing it is missing is a two way zipper but don't see those much anymore. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight rain jacket So, I am bit on the heavy side but the sizing, to my relief, was spot on. It functions as desgined...keeps the inner clothes dry even in a downpour. I am pleased because it did what I wanted it to do. The price was great and I like supporting a local company. As for the technical side: the zipper is smooth and efficient, no jerking necessary. The hood works great and it has functional pockets. What's not to like about this jacket?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I was looking for I bought this jacket one size up from what I normally wear just to make sure it would fit because of ordering online, I normally wear a 3X but I got a 4X and it fits just right it's not to big. I've already had the chance to use it in the rain and it work just like they say it does. I love how light weight it is, it makes it feel like you aren't even wearing it. I'm thinking about buying another one in a different color.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs upgrades I bought this after returning the Columbia Dr Downpour jacket, which was not available in 3XL and whose 2XL was too snug. There was a small difference in price, but the practicality was considerably less. The fabric and fit were fine but my chief grouses about the Watertight are that the hood does not stow away and there are only two side pockets. There are no inside ones, no breast pockets,all of which are offered on the Downpour. The front is zippered with minimal Velcro patches - no press studs. All in all, a cheaper, less useful version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Rain Jacket Ever!!!! Okay, so I am an Eagle Scout and I have done my fair share of camping and other outdoor activities and I always wanted a real good rain gear meaning jacket and pants so I don't need to wear a poncho or carry an umbrella. I bought a rain jacket from another online retailer and it was Columbia and it was on sale for $29.99 with free shipping. Well the second time I wore the jacket I ended up breaker the zipper so I called Columbia Customer Service and I sent it back to them and in return I got store credit so I bought the newest rain jacket and it was much better made and when it rains I always get hot but the new jacket is very breathable so I don't sweat. I am very please with Columbia and their products, nice to see a company stand behind what they sell. I am now buying two 3-1 winter coats for my son and I. One last thing is that I wear a 3XL and Columbia had that size and it fits perfectly. Faithful Customer!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect All-Round Rain Jacket I have only owned this jacket for about a week now but, it has already saved me in a sudden rain storm. Just as I was leaving work, the skies opened up and poured every ounce of moisture the clouds had been holding that day. I had received this jacket in the mail only the day prior to replace my previous rain jacket that was a pretty heavy one that utilized Gore-Tex. I love Gore-Tex but, it can get mighty hot and sweaty under a garment using it as the membrane. Again, that previous jacket was made for colder weather. This day was a warmer day and I had luckily tossed my new Columbia Watertight II into my backpack as a precaution. This jacket is perfect for a warmer climate rainy day. It is lightweight but, by no means is it wimpy in the face of weather created adversity. This jacket took everything weather threw at it and more. I had to walk a good distance that day, while carrying a heavy backpack full of work-related stuff. I really like that this Watertight II has a mesh lining; I've found that most jackets that have the raw membrane material inside tend to become annoying and sweaty as time goes on. The more activity you do in jackets like that make life miserable sometimes. With a mesh lining, the end user has a better experience with the jacket because it will not stick to the skin and it does reduce sweat significantly. True to Columbia's word, it is 100% waterproof in my limited usage. I completely believe that this jacket will not have any issues in the future. I totally rely on Columbia products and have never had a reason to mistrust them. They have never steered me in the wrong direction.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not waterproof My son and I both purchased this jacket for a two week trip overseas and wanted to make sure we had a good rain jacket. This jacket leaked at the seams during a mild rain and the hood also leaked and is too large. Pulling the hood strings didn't help stop it from covering my eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Customer I am very happy with the light weight rain ware. I use it for when I am on the water fishing, it's light weight and comfortable. Great for wearing on cool days also. The rain wear was a gift from my wife and I'm happy she made the choice. I guess you could say I'm a happy customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Small, light, packable and red :) I bought this for a trip to Kauai, the rainiest spot in the world. Being from the mountains I had a bunch of heavy waterproof stuff but I needed something for tropical rain and this product was perfect. I am now using it for my summer mountain rain on my Grand Teton photography tours as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice jacket! Husband has not yet worn this jacket, but he likes the weight of it...Very light. We agree that the size is a little small, and ordered accordingly. Our advice is to order one size bigger. We did and he is happy with the fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! I purchased this jacket as a gift for my husband. He really loves it! He's naturally a warm natured, big guy so he hates wearing heavy coats or jackets. This jacket was perfect for him! He can wear it as is or he can even layer up under the jacket without "overheating ". He's wears it in the rain and/or windy days. It's true to size & fits nicely. I would recommend this jacket to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket This jacket works well for what I need it for. I like that it packs thin and light weight. I travel five times a month so it works out well when the weather changes where your at and you have a multi purpose all weather jacket. Water proof design and long body keeps your back and waist dry. The hood when you don't need it lays back and can feel funny back there, but no big deal. It is a great coat, fits well, layers can be added under the jacket, water tight, light weight easy to carry when the weather changes. I am happy with the purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lower quality than previous years Living in the Pacific NW, I wear this jacket 9 months out of the year and am fairly hard on the jacket, so I buy a new Columbia Watertight jacket every year. The new version is definitely a step down in quality. With this year's version, Columbia replaced the snaps with thin velcro. They also replaced the zipper with the small teeth type zipper instead of the heavier duty large tooth zipper. The biggest reason I would not recommend this jacket is that while the hips and chest fit similar to previous versions, the arms are incredibly narrow and have virtually no room for movement. I would say that I have normal size arms and this fits almost skin tight with a short sleeve shirt on underneath. It's so bad, that I will have to send it back. I'm very disappointed as I will need to find a new "go to" jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fabric, perfect fit This is a fantastic purchase. I am very happy about the choice. The jacket fit perfect, the breathable fabric, but watertight and very light. Unfortunately at the time of purchase I did not find the 1st choice color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps you dry, not too warm Here in Ottawa it's not rare for the temperature to be 30+ degrees, so I wanted a jacket that would keep me dry during rainstorms, but that wouldn't be too thick and heavy. I've only had to wear it twice since I got it, but both times it kept me 100% dry and didn't cause me to sweat from the heat. Acts as a nice windbreaker too. Love the style and the color choices. I picked green and love it. I wear 2XL and 3XL depending on the brand. 2XL was a bit tight, so 3XL was better for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from if your a big man this one is a great buy I have been using this for summer camp work i do outside, alongside with some outdoor education. It is not to heavy, I had been using my winter shell so in comparison it is not as hot. It fits just right to my size and i love the color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband loved it! My husband and I are taking a trip to Europe later in the summer. We needed waterproof jackets for the trip. Since Father's Day was so close, I decided to surprise him and purchase a jacket for him online. I chose the Men's Watertight II jacket in Rocket (red). He opened his presents last night and really loved the new jacket. I had him try it on since some reviewers thought it ran a little small. He said it was a perfect fit and it looked great on him! I ordered his usual size - a 2X and got it in Big. I think it is an excellent buy for the money.
