Men's Watertight™ II Jacket - Tall is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 70.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great jacket but the tall is a bit wide I have several jackets from Columbia that are all XLT and fit great but this jacket was way to big in an XLT. I am 6'6 215lb with a slim build and it was much too big. I returned it and was hoping to get a LT but they discontinued the color I had ordered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rain Jacket Purchased this jacket for Alaska trip this summer. Wear 3XLT shirts and coats but was worried about having room for base layers underneath. No problem. Put on base layers and jacket and fits right over it with plenty of room. Love the long sleeves. This jacket keeps you dry and best of all cool as it is very breathable. Great pockets and can roll coat up in right pocket for small package in backpack. Love this jacket looks like great quality to go along with great price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid tall-size option I ordered the Tall-Large size for my husband, who is 6'5 and has very long arms. It is difficult to find him tops/jackets that are long enough. My husband immediately loved the simple and classic look of the jacket and was happy with the fit. I like it too, although I think the jacket should gather at the bottom. It basically hangs on him, which makes the sizing look a little big. Just for reference, he usually wears an XL in regular sizes and this Tall is roomier than regular XLs. Even so, I am happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rain jacket This jacket is perfect just to throw over and use for everyday when it rain. It does not have any thermal layers so if it’s cold wear layers under neath. I bought it for someone else and a 2xt was too small when that’s what the normally wear. So I exchanged it for 3xt and it’s a way better fit

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Sorry-It had to go back:( At 6'4", 200lbs, the body fit well but the arms were too short. Though almost acceptable with arms at my sides, when I reached out or up, the cuff edge was about 5" too short. So either the TALL size arms need to be significantly longer, or the shoulder area needs to better designed to accommodate for movement. It was a bummer because it otherwise seemed that it would have met my need as a lightweight, packable good-for-hiking, outdoor-adventure, always-on-hand-just-in-case rain jacket in the Pacific Northwest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I order this jacket for my fiancé he is 6’3 medium build. It’s not to big or bulky he loves it. It’s light weight, water proof, and warm. I’m glad I made his Christmas happy with this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket! My son-in-law loved this jacket so much that I got him another one for Christmas. He's going to use the blue on for work and the grey one for other times. He's 6'4" and 250#'s and I think we got him a XL Tall and it fit great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great light weight jacket for an excellent price! love the color, bought this for my son, who works outside, nice that it is water proof, exactly as described!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket Already had its testing done. First day that I have it; it pours down rain all day with some fairly good winds. Jacket stayed tight never blew or flopped when tightened down. The hood is perfect for this kind of weather. Other jackets I've tried all had the hoods blow allowing water come blow in when I'm not paying attention. Over all great jacket cant wait to get to do some fishing in the rain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jacket I bought this jacket for my son because it's water proof, and he is 6'5 , it's hard to find clothes that fit him. This jacket does? I also bought one for myself, my Mother and my Daughter. Besides being water proof it keeps you warm even though it's lightweight. I Love mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sizing options I was so happy to see that Columbia carried men’s tall sizes. I purchased this jacket as a gift and was satisfied with the fit. For someone who is 6’9”, sleeves are often too short but this jacket really exceeded my expectations, and at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Watertight II Love this jacket. I bought an EvaPOURation too and I like the feel of this one for colder weather. Now I have warm and cold rain jackets. The best thing about the Watertight II is it came in Tall in 4X, the EvaPOURation did not.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from KEEPS YOU DRY BUT NEEDS MORE FEATURES FOR THE PRICE Purchased the The Watertight II jacket just before a two-week trip to Ireland. There is a reason Ireland is multiple shades of green; it rains, and often. The jacket does a very good job of keeping the soggy bits and the dry bits apart. However, for the price, it lacks common features found on less expensive jackets. There is no way to store/secure the hood (VERY annoying and a feature I assumed was included in the design), nor are there any other storage features, besides the two zippered pockets. No chest-high pocket, no interior pocket. So, I am not very enthused about my purchase. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tall concerns I have zero quality related comments about any of the Columbia garments I own. My negative feedback is only concerning tall lengths. I have a closet full of "tall" branded clothes from various manufacturers and nearly all of them are too short or barely long enough. I understand everyone has a different body and nothing is made to fit everyone. I can not think of a time I have ever heard a tall person complain that their clothes were too long. I can however recall countless occasions where myself or another tall person has expressed frustration and disappointed that the clothes they own or try on or take a chance on are too short in sleeve length. For me, Columbia and this jacket fit right into this frustration. I bought a large tall and exchanged it for an extra large tall to get some extra length and I now have a jacket that is well built and functions well but is still too short in the sleeves but hangs on me like I tablecloth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stowable pocket Stowing is an impossible task. the mesh pocket is not large enough to easily stow the jacket. The pocket mesh should be larger in one pocket to allow enough room to stow the jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good Jacket Cons: -no inner packets -zippers are good -jacket does not breath very good. -fits large at waste. Hate if you order XXL they always think you have a big stomach. Pro: -light -stops wind well -design is nice. -sleeves are long enough for me I am 6'7" 260lbs -

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not very tall I purchased the Watertight II Jacket in size 2XT as I am 6'6" and the size guide recommended this fit. Unfortunately the sleeves were too short, and the body size too big. I wish the sleeve length for XLT were closer to 38"

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sleeves are too short Ive ordered another columbia jacket this year, in XLT and it fits fine, I have another columbia jacket similair to this in XLT and it also fits well and functions great, however this one was about 6" short in the sleeves. I'm sure it is of great quality but I was very disappointed in the fit, looking forward to what I can exchange it for

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After 2 years - still great I like to give thing a chance to work or fail before reviewing them. Now it's 2 years of use and it's in great shape. I'm 6' 6" so sleeve length is important. On a rain jacket, body length is also important. Both are generous on this jacket. The color hasn't faded and when it's red, many times it will fade early, or fade on one side and not the other. This jacket is in great shape. Zippers, velcro, and all fasteners work . Smart zipper pockets zip from top down so any item in the pocket is more likely to be retained. Highly recommended.
Date published: 2016-08-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really love this jacket It is very light weight and provides great protection from the rain while allowing ease of movement . I would highly recommend this jacket. I also love the tall sizing as I am 6'7" and the length in body and sleeves is great! Thank you Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great rain coat and windbreaker I am 6'4" 215lbs and got the XLT so I can layer with the Columbia Mountain fleece under during the cold. Perfect fit on my long arms and plenty of length in the back. Not sure I would pay $70 for a rain coat but I had a promo code and got it for $40. Great buy at that price...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good around rain jacket. The jacket does run a bit small, where I normally wear a XL Tall I ordered a 2XL Tall and like other reviews indicated the arms run a bit small so this 2XL was just right. Jacket is comfortable and breaths well.
Date published: 2016-04-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product A little small on arms, a little big on body, but adjustable on body. I wish xlt came with larger arm length. I bought 2xlt because I am 6 ft 10 and have long arms. I weigh 235. It fits when I adjust the bottom. I like it a lot, thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Fit, Nice Minimal Design I'm 6'5", 210 pounds and have really long arms and wide shoulders. Most coats either hike up in the back or are too short in the sleeves. I bought the 2XL-Tall in this and it fits great...plenty of room to wear a heavy fleece underneath. I like the minimal-design of this coat as well...I bought a black one and it is very sleek. My only complaints are that there is no inside or breast pocket and the zipper is a bit small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breathability I have been looking for a lightweight water repellant and breathable jacket to wear on hikes and biking in 40 - 50 degree weather. I walked yesterday in the wind and ice and light rain, and was really impressed with this jacket. Looks like I'll be wearing it a lot. I wish it had zippered pockets and pit zips.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Proportioned for the Tall Great looking jacket, well constructed and from when I tried it on it appeared to be very breathable. However, it was not proportioned appropriately for me. I am 6'5" weigh 230 lbs and have a 36 1/2" sleeve length. XL-Tall is my jacket size except when the jacket is cut slim or very fitter. The jacket fit everywhere except the arm holes and sleeves. The arm holes were cut high -- tight under the arms -- and the sleeves were an inch too short with the jacket on over a T-Shirt. No way I would be able to wear a fleece under it. Had to send it back.
Date published: 2016-03-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Jacket I am 6'5" 230 lbs and normally wear a L shirt. I ordered XL tall and it is the perfect size. Big enough that I can comfortably layer underneath it. I wear mine almost daily on my motorcycle to cut the wind and it works well and has provided good rain protection. I like the construction of the jacket and it feels like it will last. The only criticism I have is that I wish it had a chest pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps you dry Bought this for my son who is a truck driver and needed to stay dry in rain. He says this Columbia jacket is great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from shoulder and arm tight fit seem to read many reviews respecting tight fit on shoulders and arms , maybe the manufacturer would like to comment on why ; why would clothing made of non stretch fabric be made to be so restrictive ?
