Columbia Women's Mountain Mix Shell
Ready for action from high elevations to low, from summer rain storms to winter blizzards, the Columbia Women's Mountain Mix Shell offers a tasty mix of fashion and function that rivals any fancy bag of GORP. Made from lightweight yet durable nylon fabric, this rain jacket shell has an Omni-Tech coating that keeps it waterproof and breathable. It will keep you dry, but youll want to pull on a warmer fleece jacket mid layer when temperatures are low. Made for active pursuits, Columbia Sportswear gave this hybrid jacket stretch panels at the shoulders, under the arms and at the sides and lower back, allowing your arms to move with their full range of motion. An adjustable hood has a bonded brim for better face protection and visibility in a storm, waterproof zippers keep wetness out, and underarm pit zips help you regulate your temperature. Once you get your hands on the Columbia Mountain Mix Shell for women, itll be as necessary as Peanut M&Ms are when you hit the trail.

Very comfortable and versatile fit with the under arm vents. I usually wear a small and that is what I ordered. I feel that I can wear a light fleece under it or just a shirt. It is exactly what I have been looking for to wear on long walks.

This jacket is exceptionally well made. It does run big, so consider going down one size. Liked that the body is longer than average. Unfortunately, the sleeves are way too long. I am more likely to have the opposite complaint, as I do have long arms. But this seems to be a design flaw that Columbia should correct. I ended up sending it back, and getting a Pategonia rain jacket instead, even though it lacked the length and better designed pit-zips of this Columbia jacket. The arm length was more than I could deal with. Since I returned it I can't actually speak to its performance, but expect it would be great. If you are a super-tall woman, perhaps over 5'10'', then maybe your arms will be the right size. If so, this is the perfect rain jacket for you.
