Closeouts. Heavy weather calls for heavy-duty protection, and Obermeyer's Radical II shell jacket is ready for anything with a waterproof breathable membrane, critical seams sealed and AquaGuard® water-repellent zippers.

This jacket is exactly what I need. I walk dogs for a living in every imaginable weather condition. This is a roomy shell, so base and mid-layers don't make you feel like a doughboy. Perfect, even on cold days when you need wind or water protection. The side pockets are deep enough that keys and other things shoved in them don't spill out when you move, climb in the car, or sit down (please take note, other high-end manufacturers... this is an important feature). The hood is the right size over a hat, so the rim isn't slipping down into your eyes requiring constant adjustment. Put it on and go all day in wet, cold, windy conditions. I love it. Bravo, Obermeyer, for thinking through the details and getting them JUST right. If you want this to fit more snugly, buy a size down, but I'm thrilled with the roominess.

This jacket covers everything and has enough room for layering. I love the light fabric and the light color (I got beige). It does make a snowsuit noise (as someone else pointed out) but I don't find it all that distracting. I haven't worn it in heavy rain yet, but the zippers, etc. are well taped so I expect it to be excellent. Love it!

I guess this is not what I was expecting for the price. I love the color (orchid)-that is beautiful. But the material itself has a real plastic feel-like there is nothing to it (reminded me of a trash bag, esp, when you hear it-the material I mean). I was disappointed I guess. It works great in the rain. But for the money, so does a plastic garbage bag slicker. It does seem breathable though. It is boxy & is not really the most flattering look-but most rain things look that way so I was not put-off by that (other reviewers had described this). For the money, not worth it in my opinion.

This shell is lightweight but protects you from the wind and rain. It is definitely roomy, I am an 8-10 and the M was plenty big for layering underneath, but I like that, especially when I am skiing or the like. I hate to be so snugged in my clothes I feel like a sausage! I would definitely recommend this to a friend, and say that if they wanted a more fitted look to order a size down.

Was looking for a rain jacket. This might have fit the bill, but wanted something slightly feminine (double checked to see if it was a man's coat) without swish, swish sounds when I walked. Prefer to hear nature than my clothing.

Overall too big , wish it had fit I take a small in most jackets ( 5'5 123 lbs) Would be good for lots of layering, I want something a bit more fitted I like zippers which zip from bottom as well , this one did not. Zippers are heavy duty lots of pockets . SO if you want a non fitted waterproof shell , slightly long to cover your backside , this is the shell for you
