New Product: Columbia Rain Jackets

We're pretty excited about the new Columbia rainwear. Designed for trek and travel, it is light, 100% waterproof (as guaranteed by Columbia!), and extremely packable. There are some great colours in all fits - Men's, Women's, Girls and boys. The cut and styling is very clean. These are some good looking, versatile jackets.

But there are two reasons that these are probably the best option in rainwear that we carry if you are going to be spending your time outdoors in all weather this spring and summer.

They are breathable.  Yes, most half-decent rain jackets will keep the water on the outside. But the good ones are also effective at getting rid of the moisture on the inside. If you're out hiking or sightseeing and your jacket can't keep you cool and dry, what's the point of it being waterproof?

And then there's the details. Things like fully attached, adjustable hoods; You cant lose it, and there are no extra seams for leaks.  The light mesh linings keep the shell from sticking to your skin and allow air to move. These jackets are fully seam-sealed which makes a big difference in a deluge, and the nylon outer shell is tough enough to survive most things you'll put it through.

In Short: These are great value for the price, and if you're out in the wild this summer they are exactly the jacket you need.
