Evapouration Jacket

We've all been there—the sun is shining, the temperature is perfect, and if it weren't for those few clouds on the ridge you wouldn't have a care in the world. If you've learned your lesson from this scenario, you'll pick up the Columbia Men's Evapouration Jacket because shortly after this it's going to rain, and you're going to be stuck in the rain. This Columbia jacket utilizes Columbia's Omni-tech waterproof shell with fully taped seams to keep you dry, but you can still keep your heart rate up because this rain jacket features Omni-wick evap lining, designed to disperse your body's moisture for easy evaporation. And with a design that easily packs into one of its hand pockets, this jacket easily fits into your day pack or backpacking pack so you'll be ready for when that cloud on the ridge turns into the storm over your head.  

  • Omni-tech, fully taped seams
  • Omni-wick evap lining
  • Classic modern fit
  • Underarm venting
  • Adjustable hood
  • Packable into hand pocket


    Awesome Jacket

    Order fulfillment was wrong

      Zipper color was incorrect from what I originally ordered but works great in the rain

      Fine for low activity use

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      It's still a very good rain jacket and I'm a big fan of the look and fit, but I can't recommend this for hiking, backpacking, or any active use. I'm usually between a medium and a large, probably should have picked up a large for layering but this one still fits a fleece layer underneath just fine. Looks a little silly with a down jacket but works.

      My main issue is that, and it's a common one with any waterproof layer, it just doesn't breathe well. I was soaked in light rain on a two day hike, but in sweat. Even with the pit zips fully open and the front half unzipped, no part of my shirt (or me) was dry. Not really impressed by Columbia's fabric outside of the waterproofing.

      I also had a problem initially with the packable pocket zipper breaking, but it was an easy fix with some pliers. Just go easy on the zipper, try not to stretch the pocket too far when packing the jacket.

      Good at keeping me dry

        This baby is pretty good at keeping my dry. Wished the zipper was a bit flashier though, I love flashy zippers.

          How to Measure:
          For best results, take measurements over your underwear.

          Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
          Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
          Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
          Measure from the top of the interior leg to the bottom of the ankle.
          Measure from the center of your back to your wrist with arms held out.
