Come rain or shine.

Thunderstorms in the forecast? No worries—just put on the Columbia Watertight II Jacket and you'll be right as rain. The Omni-Tech waterproof/breathable nylon shell is fully seam sealed, so not only does it keep moisture out, but its air-permeable design allows unwanted perspiration to escape. When it starts to drizzle, just pull on the adjustable storm hood with abrasion-resistant chin guard. And no worries about getting the right fit—this jacket comes with an adjustable drawcord hem, so you're good to go. You can also use the zippered hand pockets to keep you hands warm, or to pack your jacket inside, once you return indoors to warm up by the fire.

  • Omni-Tech waterproof/breathable nylon shell
  • Fully seam sealed
  • Modern classic fit, hip length
  • Adjustable storm hood
  • Drawcord adjustable hem
  • Abrasion-resistant chin guard

Here's what others have to say...


It was nice, just not for me.

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
  • Fit:Runs small
  • Height: 6'2"
    Weight: 170 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

Reviews said it fit long. I disagree, greatly. It ran very short for me. It was also a little thick for just a light jacket I was needing. I also wanted a slimmer fit for athletic purposes.

Might be a good casual jacket. I only returned because of fit, nothing to do with quality.


Gift to my dad

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

    Size Purchased: Large

He has wore this several times in CR raning season (and we have real raining season)


Nice jacket

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

It's pretty light, but also will protect you from cool weather. This one doesn't have the ventilation under the arms but still is pretty fresh.


Awesome Jacket

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 5'9"
    Weight: 160 lbs
    Size Purchased: Small

Love the more athletic fit of this jacket. Very hard to find in a rain coat.

Length is a little longer than expected but looks great. Sleeves and drawstring hood are perfect.


Fine coat

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 6'4"
    Weight: 195 lbs

I bought this but returned it after I found something that felt a little better. I didn't really like how the inner mesh part felt on my arms so I returned it to find something a little more comfortable.

I got a large.

My review is for the Watertight 1 jacket. Good wind breaker, light rain is fine but it soaked through on a steady rain on a recent trip. This should not happen on a rain jacket. Sending back to Columbia. I don't know if the Watertight II is better.. I hope so

What is the center back length of a medium?

Journey Through Olympic

Come on this visually stunning journey through Olympic National Park. This video is the culmination of a month spent backpacking through Olympic National Park.

While on our journey filming in Olympic National Park we experienced a wide variety of weather conditions. From sunny days and mild temperatures to cold and relentless rain. But throughout our Watertight II jackets held up. In Washington, specifically Olympic, rain is a fact of life. We experienced more than our share of it, but this jacket never quit. Thanks to Columbia for a great jacket at a great price.


Great and simple

  • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit:True to size

This is a basic waterproof jacket. The fit of this jacket is different then the Watertight I, check out Columbia's size chart for each of their fit classes. (google image search Columbia mens fit guide)

I bought this as a gift for my dad. Luckily fathers day and our trip to the Kenai Peninsula in AK lined up perfectly. At first we went with the XL but he wanted this to fit more casual and to be able to layer under. We had to exchange for a XXL, he's a bit larger around the gut. 6' prob 250lbs ish. If he didn't want to layer the XL fit perfect

This jacket helped keep him dry when it rained, and protected from the wind when we took a boat tour. It's breathable, but he wasn't wearing this if we were hiking with no rain.

The draw cord is a plus. Packing into its pocket was awesome, he was stashing this in his bag everywhere we went.

Does it provide any protection from the wind?

"Any"? Certainly. About as much as a waterproof jacket does!

What is the difference between columbia...

What is the difference between columbia watertight and watertight 2 jackets (if any) other than the pockets?


There are very few differences between the Columbia Watertight and Watertight II Jackets. Primarily it is simply the next model year with new colorways, however, there are some differences in the pocket arrangement in the new model and a slight difference in length (the original Watertight has a center back length of 30" while the Watertight II is 29").

Both jackets employ Columbia's Omni-Tech waterproof-breathable membrane, both have drawcord cinching on the hem, and both have an adjustable storm hood.

When ordering, keep in mind that this jacket does size fairly large and most people in their reviews recommend sizing down from their typical jacket size.

How much does this jacket weigh in large?...

How much does this jacket weigh in large? I am going backpacking and weight is a HUGE factor in my decision.

according to it weighs 17 oz,default,pd.html

Hello David,

I can't find the weight anywhere. Adam's link is for the older version. None of Columbia's three descriptions for the new Watertight II says how much it weighs, in any size:

Probably best to look at other jackets if weight is the primary thing for you ~ ~
