Description

When hell freezes over, you’ll climb there, too.

Columbia constructed the Men’s Deep Ghyll Jacket from waterproof breathable three-layer Omni-Tech fabric to keep you bone dry during the drippiest climbs and deepest turns. Thanks to this technical shell’s sharp styling, you’ll be looking for excuses to get outside—as if all that scalable ice wasn’t enough.
  • Fully sealed seams stop water from leaking through the stitching
  • Large underarm zippers provide ventilation when needed
  • Well-placed pockets remain accessible when you�re wearing a harness
  • Two-way stretch makes jacket flexible for alpine mobility

Does this jacket have any insulation?

Does this jacket have any insulation?

Responded on

ale4582663,
Thanks for your question. The Deep Ghyll jacket is a shell, you will need to layer accordingly in order to be insulated with this jacket. I hope that is helpful for you.

Responded on

Not any appreciable amount. It's meant to be a secondary layer, not a winter coat.

While this shell is not insulated, it will hold the heat in if your activity level is high. On a windy day with temps on the low to mid 30's F, I had to shed the fleece I was wearing underneath and open the vents fully. Even then, I was still working up a sweat. This was a particularly strenuous canyon hike/scramble.

Good shell, great price.

Rain, snow, wind, this shell can take it and asks for more.

The fit is athletic and snug, but not constricting. There is a good degree of stretch kepping it comfortable, while still looking good. The side vents let out extra heat, which is good because the arms tend to not breathe well and hold the heat and moisture in.

The hood has a wire brim, which keeps the visor out well in front of your face. The only drawback, not helmet compatible, so you won't be wearing this shell into the Death Zone. However, for non-extreme winter conditions, it works just fine.

The deep teal is pretty enough to wear as a winter raincoat arround town. The dark blue trim is a perfect match for the blue on my Columbia Ballistic Fleece. As an added bonus, the lower half of the pit zips line up with the side zips on the fleece.

It's a shame, though, if Columbia simply added the interchange tabs and made the hood helmet compatible, they'd have a solid shell to compete with the high dollar ones. Hence, only four stars.

Does this shell have the 3pt interchange tabs?

Thanks Jeff! I ordered this one anyway, as the trim on the deep teal matches the blue on my ballistic fleece. For the price, I can deal with the lack of tabs!

(Give Jeff some thumbs up, he answers questions within hours!)

this one does not have the 3-point tabs in the cuffs and neck. the peak ascent does

5'9 150 lbs. i wear a North Face Medium in the decagon jacket. fits great, baggyish. don't want it tight, M or L?

Chris, I think you would be good to go with the Medium.

How does Columbia sizing compare with North Face? I'm a perfect Large in TNF and am hoping columbia shares the same boxy fit

Thanks Mike! - (give him a thumbs up...NOW)

Y & B, I have found the fit to be very close. I tried on a Columbia Softshell last week and it fit me exactly as my TNF does. I guess you could always catch a oddball but I think I would start with the Large.

You are very welcome, hope it fits great!

I'm 5'10, 170, what size should I get? M or L I'm thinking. I like snug but I have a L spyder jacket and it fits to my liking so when I see a 6'2 190 guy got a L, that makes me think columbia cuts this jacket big

Responded on

compared to the other brand, this runs a little more generously. A medium will be great for you

Great Shell From Columbia

First, the Compass Blue scores big points for steez. Got a Large for my 6'2", 195 lb. frame and the fit allows a MH Windstopper Tech for warmth when I need it, though I got it for spring skiing. The Omin-Tech isn't quite Gore-Tex Pro, but it looks and feels solid. No powder skirt, but for the larcenous price I got it for on SAC, who cares?
Only negative, the hood isn't helmet compatible, so wear a hat!
Nice work Columbia, while the finish detail isn't quite up to my Arc Sidewinder, it doesn't cost nearly as dearly!
I'll post a pic when I get the time.

UPDATE: Just got back from UT and skiing the backcountry. Jacket performed well. The blue does catch dirt though, but looks great. Also, very waterproof as I got to try it out when I got back to Florida. TOugher build than i originally thought, stacks up to GoreTex Pro. Zips have softened and the mesh pockets help this jacket to breathe.

I got this jacket but I'm not sure this is quite up to the challenge of being used for all day skiing. Temps will range from 0-20 degrees. Seems like I would get cold.

Responded on

Totally agree with Jeff, it is all about layering when wearing shells.
