Thunderstorms in the forecast? No worries--just put on the Columbia Watertight II Jacket and you'll be right as rain. The Omni-Tech waterproof/breathable nylon shell is fully seam sealed, so not only does it keep moisture out, but its air-permeable design allows unwanted perspiration to escape. When it starts to drizzle, just pull on the adjustable storm hood with abrasion-resistant chin guard. And no worries about getting the right fit--this jacket comes with an adjustable drawcord hem, so you're good to go. You can also use the zippered hand pockets to keep you hands warm, or to pack your jacket inside, once you return indoors to warm up by the fire.
