I bought this a few years ago as a gift. Unfortunately that gift was stolen, but luckily it was stolen before Father's Day so I could re-gift it again. This jacket is awesome.
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)
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 keeps him dry when it rains protects from the wind, it is breathable and is great to hike in.
The draw cord is a plus. Packing into its pocket was awesome.
