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.
Clean, thoughtfully engineered lines provide a striking framework for the technology inside this jacket: a sleek interior with a bonded liner, fully taped seams, and Omni-Dry®—an extremely air-permeable waterproof fabric that diffuses the moisture vapors you generate while still shedding water in the worst of conditions. For times when your heart rate is really in the red, zip open the aptly placed underarm vents and let the fresh air flow in. Articulated elbows provide a natural fit and superior mobility. Hand pockets and a security pocket at left shoulder all but disappear thanks to our Invizzip™ technology.
