OK, this jacket fit the bill. Very solid and durable material, with just the right amount of give, being as though it has a little bit of elasticity. The material also does not feel like soley a rainjacket. Does not make excessive noise as you move. Very good for a multiple use shell. Probabably why...

Columbia Titanium product line I've always found to be Columbia's highest quality ski line and this jacket meets that expectation. The lining workmanship that I see is excellent. Quality lining, excellent zippers and the most wonderful zipper handles of any jacket I've purchase even at double this price range. Even a little key ring strap holder inside the pocket is a little extra touch you don't find on $500 Mountain Hardwear shells. The hood is very nice with a good brim. At these lower MRSP prices you can't expect the higher end breathability or Omni-heat feature. Columbia usually always runs true to size for me (XL). But because I wish to have the option to have a down jacket mid-layer underneath for skiing or on cold day hikes/walks I order 2XL. If one is slim and trim and in the middle to lower end of the Columbia chart size ranges one need not order up to layer. While my 48 inch chest and 34-35 inch arms are just right for a XL my 44 inch waist pushes the bounders in the belly area, another reason I order 2XL. There is nothing unusual about the arm length in this jacket. Short folks and stocky folks will usually always find the arms feel way to long for them. That's another reason for the Velcro wrist straps. Over all I've giving this 5 stars based upon it's quality to price ratio. But remember a "Shell" isn't an "insulated" jacket. But the point of a quality shell is to allow you to purchase a separate mid-layer insulation liner be it a down, wool or any other jacket/liner for use on colder days.

This is a fantastic jacket. Waterproof, yet the pit zips and pockets zip offer tremedous venting. Note: that the hand pocket let in major air when unzipped. I am 6' and 195 lbs, and a large fit perfect. The only problem we had is that they glued together parts of the jacket. On the first use, I unzipped a vest pocket and it "fell out" of the jacket, the glue just gave way... bummer, but will probably try another...
This can be used in warm weather, above 60 with higher energy output means a little more condensation, but you get that with every waterproof jacket no matter how breathable they are. I think the model is "Columbia Fast Three", the jacket is known as a "shell". The title can throw you off. Awesome jacket, keeps you dry.
