The Columbia Women's OutDry Ex Gold Tech Shell Jacket is like waterproof, breathable body armour with advanced evaporation and a fully seam-sealed construction featuring an attached, adjustable, storm hood. It also features underarm venting, a slightly dropped tail, adjustable cuffs and hem and high-tech Light Rail zips on the hand pockets.
OutDry Extreme is a waterproof and breathable fabric technology constructed with a waterproof layer on the outside and soft, wicking fabric inside. Traditional rainwear uses interior waterproof membranes which don't allow for air flow, and water-repellent coating that degrades over time. With OutDry Extreme, the rugged exterior is an incredibly water-tight membrane with millions of microscopic perforations that let water vapor escape through a wicking membrane directly fused to the shell.
