Watertight II Jacket
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.

Keeps me dry!
So far, I love this jacket. I purchased a medium and it fits as expected. It allows me to wear an insulating layer underneath without feeling stuffy. If you're looking to layer up for much colder weather I would recommend a size larger than your normal fit. I've walked through at least three rainstorms of varying intensity and have yet to get wet in this jacket. My only complaint is the zipper. It has separated at the bottom stop at least twice; however, it was easily corrected by unzipping and re-zipping the jacket. I would definitely recommend this product.

This jacket is a good fit and has saved me from some heavy raining. Also, it has enough space inside so I can wear a fleece or a hoodie.

I haven't really used it yet, but I have tried it on. I got this as an outer shell for a trip coming up. I was looking for waterproof and affordable, and this hit the nail on the head. It looks good, feels good, and I believe I will be able to use this fishing here in FL as well, although it might be a little hot. The fit is just right...not too loose and not too tight. I'll be able to layer it no problem. Should get a lot of use out of this.

A great gift
This was a gift but the feedback was great: water resistant lightweight, not bulky and comfortable.

Solid rain jacket
I like this jacket. Fits right, not overly breathable but itâs a tradeoff for the waterproof feature. Overall, exactly as advertised and looks nice.

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.

It was everything I need!
Everything is perfect with this jacket, it fits me, the color is the same as the photo, is very light weight and it protects me from the rain.

Bring It On
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!
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.

Fits great, true to size. It is nice to wear out and is stylish.

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!

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

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
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.

Does this jacket also keep you warm?
December 23, 2015
Hey Ken, This is just a rain shell so it will not provide insulation. However with proper layering underneath it is a great jacket for winter weather as it will keep you dry.

Does it provide any protection from the wind?

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

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.
February 6, 2014
according to Columbia.com it weighs 17 oz http://www.columbia.com/Men%27s-Watertight%E2%84%A2-Jacket/RM2135,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: http://www.columbia.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-Columbia_US-Site/default/Search-Show?q=watertight+ii&Submit=Go Probably best to look at other jackets if weight is the primary thing for you ~ ~
