Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars


The main features of this Jacket Omni-Heat, Omni-Sheild, and Omni-Wind. Basically it is warm, rain resistant — in the 6 months that I have had it it repels water well. Very little wind gets in and it still is breathable. All of this and it is still relatively light.


  • Warm: With a good thermal layer it is comfortable to 20s
  • The styling is nice and stands out
  • Repels water and keeps you dry


  • The material around the neck is not water resistant
  • The material around the neck catches stubble
  • Sleeves are narrow
  • Shiny interior — people notice

I got this jacket for fall. I wanted something that was warm and looked nice, and got both of those! It is warm and cuts through wind. The reflective Mylar in the interior of the jacket reflects you body heat keeping you warm, if you get to warm you can partially unzip the jacket and cool off quickly.

It is an athletic fit. I am 6'2" and 220 lbs and the XL fits well. Long arms fit nice but are narrow so thicker layers work, but you have to slide your arms in holding the sleeves of the layer.

The weather resistance is nice, water beads and runs off the jacket, rain sleet snow, and mud wipes clean off of the jacket! For a rain resistant jacket it breathes quite well, not like a fleece but it breathes.

The chest pocket is a nice touch and can fit the Samsung Note 2 the style of the jacket is great the seams/zippers everything about this jacket is quality. I am impressed, it surpassed my expectations.

Columbia designed its Men's Key Three II Softshell Jacket with technologically advanced features so you can hike, backpack, camp, climb, and play in the outdoors with the utmost comfort and satisfaction. The Omni-Wind membrane keeps wind from seeping through the jacket so you barely notice a breezy chill. An Omni-Shield DWR coating resists light drizzle and stains. The bonded softshell fabric keeps you warm, and the Omni-Heat Thermal Reflective lining increases the warmth by reflecting your own body heat back to you while you play. The Key Three has an athletic fit for broad shoulders and a trim waist. That aspect, combined with a two-way stretch, allows you to move freely while you climb your way to the tops of mountains. This jacket also comes with a drawcord at the hem to cinch the jacket tightly when the winds really start to howl. It also has a chin guard to keep your chin baby soft or ruggedly handsome.
