The Powder Lite Hooded Jacket has an Omni-Heat Thermal Reflective lining on the inside to seal in warmth and an Omni-Shield water repellency treatment on the outside to act as a water and stain resistant barrier.
Great for late fall or early winter, the warm and water-resistant Men’s Powder Lite Hooded Jacket is crafted of a waterproof-breathable outer shell, lined with Omni-Heat™ thermal reflective, and packed with synthetic insulation. Featuring attached adjustable hood, interior pocket, zippered hand pockets, and elastic cuffs.
Columbia's Powder Lite Hooded Jacket is a warm jacket filled with Thermarator synthetic insulation. What makes this jacket even warmer is the use of Columbia's Omni-Heat reflective lining. This thermal reflective technology keeps you warmer by reflecting back the heat your body generates. It also helps regulate body temperature by allowing excess heat and moisture to escape.
The metallic dot pattern makes up 35% of Columbia's heat retaining lining. While the rest of the lining consists of highly breathable fabric that dissipates moisture and access heat. The lining is definitely eye catching, but when it's on you won't see it so it's not a problem. The outer shell is treated with Columbia's Omni-Shield advanced repellency. This water and stain barrier will resist light rain and stains, keeping you clean and protected.
Feature-wise you have two lined hand warmer pockets and an internal zip pocket large enough for a phone, keys and wallet. The hood has an elastic edge but no adjustments, same as the cuffs and there's a drawcord adjustable hem to help keep the heat in and the cold out.
