Men's Watertight Ii Jacket Reviews
I am on the border of large and x-large with most my clothes (36" give or take waist). From other reviews, I read it’s a little big, so decided to size down and went for the large. It fits nice with a t-shirt underneath, but not a lot of extra room for my… ugh… expanded mid section. With a fleece mid-layer, it’s a bit snug me. So if you’re right on that L/XL line in most your clothing due to an over-indulgence in yummy trail treats and plan to wear over thicker clothing, I’d go with the XL. But if you plan to be using it as a summer raincoat over just a tee for hiking and so on (that’s my plan with it), then I’d go with the L. It’s really that fine of a line for me.
My husband loves this jacket. It is actually waterproof. My husband mountain bikes as a hobby and he volunteers to build the trails. Rainy days are the best trail building days and he said this jacket kept him completely dry while he was working in the rain for hours. On sizing if you are barely a large size down to a medium. The large runs big. My husband is 5’10” 170lbs and medium fits him perfect. The large fit my brother inlaw perfectly and he is 6′ 220lbs for reference.
Had this jacket for about a month now and all I can say is it’s awesome! Perfect for rain and a pretty damn good wind breaker as well. I can’t say it’s completely waterproof because I haven’t been in a monsoon rainstorm but it’s kept me dry for every other rain storm. Also it packs up so if you don’t need it right now but maybe later for like a camping trip or something you can pull it out and put it on.Instructions: the left pocket has a label inside that says "packable" turn that guy inside out and stuff the rest of the jacket on in there.About the size of a normal picture 6"x4" and the width of maybe 3-4" probably depends on how well you stuff it in there. Hope this helps!
A Review of the Columbia Menâ€™s Watertight Rain JacketThe Columbia Menâ€™s Watertight Rain Jacket is a lightweight waterproof jacket with a slim design. As the name suggests, the jacket is very much capable of keeping you dry on a rainy day; however, its value goes way beyond a rain coat. Here are several features that make this jacket a wonderful addition to your wardrobe.Waterproof and WindproofThis jacket is truly waterproof. It helps you stay clean and dry even in the pouring rain. With the waterproof technology comes the wonderful stain repellent feature. No matter how dirty the jacket gets during a rainy day, a simple wipe is enough to take care of it. The windproof feature provides an extra protection against the cold. Meanwhile, the fabric is still breathable that it allows moisture vapor to move away from the skin. The only downside is that the waterproof feature can post difficulty when it comes to washing this jacket. You may find a pouch of water when you take it out of the washer. An extra cycle of drying will take care of the issue if this ever occurs.DesignThis jacket is lined with a soft layer of mesh and is very light weight. The longer arm length and body length provide enough coverage to keep you dry no matter how hard the wind is blowing. The hood comes out far enough forward to shield your face while the drawstring helps keep the hood on even in strong wind. Two front pockets with zipper are big enough to protect a phone, a wallet, a set of keys, and even a pair of gloves from getting rained on. The slim design delivers a more modern look than its competitors, helping you keep the style even on an awfully crummy day. Meanwhile, the jacket is still generous with space around your chest so that you always have enough room for a sweater or a hoodie or even a coat. Another notable feature is that the entire jacket can be packed into the front left pocket, which comes with a double-sided zipper.VersatilityFew jackets are as versatile as this one. The waterproof and windproof features make this jacket practically perfect for a fishing trip. The breathable fabric makes sure that you can throw this jacket over your favorite tee on a rainy day in the middle of the summer. You can also layer up under this jacket for fall or winter use. The matt finish and the slick look ensure that no one knows you are using a rain jacket as a spring/fall windbreaker. You can also use this jacket to protect your pea coat from getting wet on a snow day.Overall, the Columbia Menâ€™s Watertight Rain Jacket is a high quality jacket that can be worn in many occasions. It surely has room for improvements. But for the price you are paying, you can hardly find a better deal than this.
Bought as a gift, recipient delighted with fit and performance has been tested to the max in the recent inclement weather conditions, would def recommend.
