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.
Columbia was born in Portland, Oregon, USA, where snow-covered volcanos and glaciers are just a hike away. Our goal is to keep you protected no matter what. That’s why our products are tested in the harshest conditions Mother Nature can muster.
Our Tested Tough stamp is Columbia’s promise to you that we’ve done our job. We’ve tested our products high atop cascade peaks, on the crashing waves and soaking rain of the Oregon coast, and in some of the most challenging conditions around the world. All to ensure that when people wear Columbia, they’ll be able to stay Outdoors longer. And have fun while they do it.
