    A little rain never hurt anyone.

    Thunderstorms in the forecast? No worries—just put on the Columbia Men's Watertight II Jacket and you'll be right as rain. The Omni-Tech two-layer 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 the wind picks up, just pull on the adjustable storm hood with abrasion-resistant chin guard to keep the elements at bay. 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 the clouds part and the sun pops back out.

    Nice jacket

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 162lbs

    Purchased this jacket for my son, looks really nice, not sure why you would spend more on another brand. May have to get one for myself.

    Bring It On

    • Fit: True to size

    This is a great jacket. I have been really impressed how well it breathes considering it is a rain jacket. Also, you can tell it has been designed to last -- really good quality. I'm really happy with it so far.

    Great all-around functional jacket!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I love this jacket so much! Honestly, it's so comfortable I don't even take it off when I get to the office! It's both functional and stylish and it earns my highest recommendation. Good for around town or day long back country ski tours.

    So far, so good

    I'm 6' 5" and generally wear 42 size jackets. With that in mind, I purchased the Large yellow version of this jacket. At first the jacket felt a bit too large for my frame, but once added a couple of layers underneath (how I'd actually wear this in the wild), it felt much better. Still a little loose, but I'd rather have that than it being too tight and constricting. Quality of the jacket seems nice. It's lightweight, simple, nothing to complain about. A NOTE ABOUT THE YELLOW - the jacket isn't quite as yellow as the images here depict. IRL it has a bit more orange in it for a tone that's kind of close to mustard. I like it, but if you're looking for a bright canary / banana yellow, this ain't it.

    Awesome, versatile jacket!

    I recently bought this jacket for my son because he won't leave mine alone! This jacket is completely awesome! It fits perfect, breathes very well and is about as water "resistant" as you could possibly hope or expect it to be. The mesh liner really sets this jacket apart. The versatility of this jacket is really understated. I use this jacket for backcountry touring because it works so effectively to manage my temperature while skinning up for some fresh turns. I really highly recommend this jacket to anyone looking for a light weight, comfortable, breathable yet waterproof outer layer. It even has the feel of a mid '90's throwback ski parka when you have it on. Maybe it's the nostalgia of that image talking but I might buy another one again just in case mine wears out!

    • Size Bought: Large

    I wore this jacket in Portland, it breathes well, easy to pack, and feels like it will be durable enough to last.

    great for those spring showers

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

    Just wanted a light jacket to repel light rain and snow and this works perfect. packable for when the rain stops as well.

    Exactly what he needed

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    Bought this jacket for my boyfriend for our Europe backpacking trip and it's perfect. Keeps him dry in the rain and can be packed away in a day backpack.

    Great jacket for the price

    This is a great jacket at this price point. Light weight and simple features.

    Excellent Jacket!! Great Buy

    Coat worked amazing when I needed it on my trip. I went for a long hike and the weather was suppose to get pretty rough, which it did. I pulled the jacket out of my backpack and it kept my bag and myself completely dry. After a short while when the rain was finished the jacket was completely dry. Awesome!! Thank you.

    Gets the Job Done

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

    I took this to wear in Uganda which is right on the equator. We did not have a lot of rain but it would randomly rain torrentially throughout the trip. This jacket did a great job by keeping me dry and not making me too hot. I had very limited packing space to the fold into the pocket feature was also very beneficial.

    5 stars at $30; 4 stars at $50

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    Let's be honest, if you can get this jacket cheap like I did, it's a steal. If you have to pay full price, or even $50+.....meh.

    Don't get me wrong, it's a solid performer: Fully taped seams, adjustable hood/cuffs/waist, and it's packable. However, it lacks the pit vents that are so desperately needed during those the springs/fall ascents. Even though the jacket is breathable, no amount of selective permeability can substitute direct ventilation.

    As for water resistance, I have only been able to use this shell in snow and sleet conditions. Water does seem to bead off of the jacket with ease, so I don't foresee water repellency to be an issue.

    Sizing is akin to most Columbia products: Slightly larger and longer than my other shells, but I welcome this as it allows me to add a couple layers for those colder days. I could still wear this jacket with just a tee underneath, but it would probably start to look more like a medium on me.

    Price vs cost makes the watertight II an excellent entry level shell. Thus, it would make a great backup or short ascent tech layer, but I wouldn't rely on it as my primary shell.

    What is the difference between columbia...

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

    Amanda,

    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.



    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 ~ ~
