Men's Watertight™ II Jacket - Tall is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 84.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rainbreaker for warm-weather travel I love this jacket! I spotted it on sale just as I was planning a trip to sun country, wondering what to take to use in case of rain, and I snapped it up. This is perfect, because it is not cold weather wear, and is light enough to pack in a small space when traveling light, but is not flimsy. The pockets are zippered, always an advantage when traveling. The only thing I miss is a zippered vest pocket, which the coats and jackets I like best have. I thought I wasn’t going to use it after a week of hot, dry weather, but when we checked into our current hotel and headed to the rooftop terrace bar, we arrived just as a cloudburst opened up. Everybody there ran for cover — I ran to my room for my Columbia wind/rainbreaker and returned for a glass of cava al fresc. Oregonians don’t mind a little rain. I can report that this jacket is waterproof and not too warm for comfort for use as emergency wear in a Mediterranean climate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best raincoat ever! This is my second Columbia raincoat. The zipper finally wore out on the first one, after several years of hard use. I drive a delivery truck, and am frequently caught in heavy downpours. Neither of my Columbia raincoats have ever leaked, or felt too hot to wear. They breath incredibly well. I've washed them several times, and they come out as good as new. The rain pants are also a good thing to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When my husband likes it! I normally do not write reviews but I figured this one deserves it. My husband does a lot of inspections inside and outside, rain or shine. He was so impressed with this rain jacket as it kept him dry without the bulkiness and did not hinder him from moving around. Because this jacket come down to his upper thigh (6’4”) his lower half was soaked from not being covered but the areas that covered him kept him super dry. For something super light weight and thin it works very well! I highly recommend it for staying dry when having to brace the outdoors during rainy days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waterproof and Sturdy I needed this jacket and was not disappointed at all. Being a life long consumer of Columbia, I have come to appreciate the appropriate pricing and quality of their products. This product was sized as expected and fairly priced. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Coat My husband is very happy with his new coat. It repels water really well and is very light weight. The sizing was spot on to fit him. All Columbia products we have purchased in the past were of excellent quality for the price. We are planning to purchase more products in the future, due to our complete satisfaction!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket! 1 of the if not the best all weather jacket I've purchased in a long time! Love the size runs a little big so you can easily put on a sweater or hoodie which i have done. Fits perfect with the sweater, plenty of arm room, the adjustable hood & waist is great. I also can't believe how well it held up in 30+degree weather in the East Coast! Like I stated already with a hoodie underneath the jacket that's all I needed! Very much 1000% recommend!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed - Bring back the original Watertight After 4+years, it was finally time to replace my original Watertight jacket, so I purchased the Watertight 2. I am very disappointed. This version is made cheaply compared to its predecessor. The lining has been changed to a scratchy mesh. There are tiny pieces of velcro where the snaps used to be. While the body width is the same it's shorter than the original and the arms are much narrower and shorter. Unfortunately, I've washed the jacket a few times in the hopes of softening the lining, so I can't return it. Totally bummed...please bring back the original Watertight jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Great product, thin and breathable, does its job, great quality for a great price, would recommend for a spring jacket/light hiking/keeping the rain and wind out. Room enough for a hoodie for colder weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Jacket Light weight, Breathable, and great as a wind breaker. Jacket is roomy and great as a wind layer with a fleece underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product, excellent design this is a great rain jacket and good for the cooler rainy days. It will keep you dry, but I wear it at times for just a lighter option on a cooler day as well. It's not as "packable" for hiking as other options, but it still folds up pretty nicely for a day pack. It will keep you drier than those more lightweight options as well from what I've seen. I bought a Large-Tall and it runs a little bigger than the normal Large sizing, but the extra arm length is worth it to me. I do wish Columbia would fix that though. A "medium-tall" would probably be a better fit for me if Columbia had one in comparison to this jacket.
Date published: 2018-03-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Engineered When I think of a weather proof garment, I think - is it rain proof but still allows your body to breath? Columbia got this one right. - are the pockets functional and comfortable? Columbia got this right. -is it proportioned correctly for its designated size? Columbia got this right. These all add up to a practical, comfortable and functional garment. Well done Columbia! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

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 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 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.
