A little rain never hurt anyone.
Don't let a few grey clouds ruin your afternoon hike. Your Columbia Men's Outdry Hybrid Jacket protects you from the elements so you can focus on what you came out here to do in the first place: enjoy the lush smell of pine forests and indulge in that stash of chocolate-covered espresso beans that you stashed in your pockets.
The Omni-Tech shell and Outdry construction put up a solid line of defense against soggy Northwest storms, and the underarm vents let you dump heat quickly when you're walking up a steep hill. Pull up the attached, adjustable hood when the winds start to howl, and stuff your hands in the zippered pockets to indulge in a chocolaty treat.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
- Height: 5'11"
- Weight: 165lbs
This although weighing twice the weight of my OR helium II is worth the 5-6oz in my opinion. This jacket has taken abuse be it nettles, climbing, and general labor around the ranch. The armpit vents are amazing and the jacket breaths well even without them open. There are no holes and the thing has not once leaked on me. This jacket is an essential item that goes with me everywhere.
Pros:Rugged, cheap (compared to alternatives), light weight, breathable (better than gortex, military made me despise gortex)
Cons: no hood cinch (only a velcro strap), hood blows off in high wind.
Perfect for rainy days

Waterproof light jacket, fitted perfecty on my brother (bought it as a gift). Great for hiking! Materials feel nice and resistant.
Is this Jacket packable? Does it pack into its own pocket?
The jacket is definitely packable based on the thin material it is made of. But it is not made specifically to pack down in a pocket. I honestly pack almost everything I own into its own pockets without a problem whether or not the product is made too! Gotta save on space!
Are the front pockets accessible while wearing a pack with hip belt?
Hey Bradley, great question. This jacket is not designed to be able to access the pockets while wearing a hip belt.
