You're gunning it on your weekly, epic Saturday trail run, and two things stand out: 1) it's dumping rain; 2) you don't care. The Columbia Men's Trail Turner Shell Jacket is a lightweight 2.5-layer shell that scoffs at the wet stuff dumping upon you. Columbia's patented Omni-Tech waterproof breathable membrane seals out wet weather and allows water vapor to escape; couple that with the fully sealed seams and you are surprisingly dry as a bone. As you're darting through pines and jumping over rocks you're working up a sweat, but the Omni-Wick EVAP technology is extremely breathable and transmits perspiration away from the body four times faster than other technologies like it. And the back vent is helping dump excess heat as well.

Your dynamic, outdoor activity might require you to tweak how you wear the Trail Turner during your run, so Columbia has thrown in a drawcord adjustable hem and an attached, adjustable storm hood. In addition to the hood, the jacket's drop tail provides even more coverage. There's only one mile left but it's all up hill, so you pull out a gel pack from the zippered hand pocket, and you're golden for the final sprint to the trailhead. You get back, you're dry, and, like the Trail Turner, you're laughing at the clouds as they roll by—but maybe next time you'll wait until the rain clouds pass by before you head out.

Not the Best

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:True to size

I wore this jacket for two straight days through light showers while backpacking a section of the Appalachian Trail in Northern Tennessee last March. It sheds water fairly well but the lack of pit zips and back ventilation caused me to overheat and start sweating through the jacket within the first hour. The jacket did dry out fairly quickly once it was removed but unless the jacket is heavily discounted I would recommend purchasing a different model or brand.

Meh, even w/ discount

I wore this outdoors working in the rain all day. It does shed the water just fine but it is useless against any wind or chlily temps. Yes it is just a shell so its my fault for not taking the cold into account. But I think for the money it should have zippered vents - wven working in the cold wind of a NY February, I found myself getting clammy , adding to the wind chill. Otherwise, fit and finish were just fine.

Rain, Rain, Don't Even Bother...

This water proof shell is awesome. Wear it over a Marmot baselayer during freezing rain or snow storms and you're golden. You will not get wet. Anything you happen to have in the 2 front pockets will not get wet. Anything in the inside stow pocket will not get wet. It's not insulated or lined in any way, though, so check your weather report before you go out. Doesn't breathe at all if you have it completely sealed up tight, but it is an awesome, awesome jacket if you desire not to get wet.


  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

I ordered this jacket for my husband. The delivery was quick. However, the jacket appear to be a wind breaker and I was looking for a more warmer jacket for the fall season. Returning it today.
