OutDry Extreme Diamond™ Shell
"Columbia's new OutDry Extreme is the most disruptive advancement in waterproof technology in years.” — Gear Institute
Introducing our award winning OutDry™ Extreme, our first ever waterproof and breathable jackets and pants with a waterproof layer on the outside and fabric on the inside. Traditional raingear uses interior waterproof membranes which doesn't allow for air flow. Why not switch it around, and set the world of raingear on its ear? With waterproof seam taping applied directly to the outside of the garment and a wicking, next-to-skin membrane inside, you’ll stay absolutely dry and comfortable no matter what.
We ought to know. We tested it in some of the nastiest conditions on the planet. Better known as Portland, Oregon. Learn more about OutDry Extreme on our blog: http://blog.columbia.com/outdry_extreme/
