Columbia Peak 2 Peak Jacket
Price Paid: $200
Walked around in this jacket in the wind and heavy rain for an hour, sheds water like a duck, I was going up and down steep hills flat out, in warm weather and it breathed well. Far less moisture buildup than I've had in Gore-tex or eVent jackets.
The hood is a borderline fit for me. I"m 5 11, long neck. I got a Large. I'm average build, otherwise the cut is ample, size up if you have a thick neck, it's just big enough for my narrow neck.
Nice soft polyester fabric, looks and feels nice. Not sure how hard wearing it will be if you are having to bash through thick bush because it's polyester and not nylon. It's a reasonably strong looking fabric though; it's not thin riptsop.

How can a three-layer waterproof breathable shell like the Columbia Mens Peak 2 Peak Jacket weigh only 14 ounces' When it features the new Columbia Omni-Dry membrane, 50% of which is air. All that space in the membrane not only means that it barely tips the scales, but it also makes this jacket ultra-breathable for supreme comfort during high-energy outdoor adventures. While all the moisture your perspiration generates makes itself scarce, any rain or snow trying to work its way in is blocked by the waterproof fabric and fully taped seams.
If minimal weight and full mobility are just as important as full wind and weather protection, the Columbia Peak 2 Peak Jacket for men is everything you need in an outdoor rain jacket. While there are other rain jackets and wet weather parkas that make similar claims, few can match the award-winning triple-ply, air-permeable Omni-Dry shell fabric found on Columbia's Peak 2 Peak Jacket for men. That's why Outside Magazine gave it their Gear of the Year award for their shell award category. The Peak 2 Peak Jacket features fully taped seams and underarm zipper vents. The waterproof Inviszip openings on the chest and sleeve pockets don't hang up or catch on backpack harnesses or climbing gear components. Articulated elbows address mobility concerns while the Peak 2 Peak Jacket remains roomy enough to accommodate midweight fleece or classic camping clothing without bunching or binding.
