Columbia Sportswear PFG ODX Hybrid Jacket

Breathability, waterproofing, and durability are all things outdoorsmen look for in a good rain layer but rarely find in equal amounts. Columbia’s updated version of their OutDry Hybrid Jacket, however, may be one of the few out there to find that elusive balance.

Rather than fitting their new rain layer with one single type of fabric, Columbia has built this new shell with materials of varying density and backing. A two-layered OutDry Extreme membrane is applied along the hood, shoulders, and arms while a thicker, more durable material is layered over that. Alternatively, the torso features the same OutDry material but with a more lightweight and breathable mesh backing. The result is a jacket that is ideal for shouldering packs and throwing on before doing some angling out on the river. Right now you can pick these up in either black, pond, or blue and grey.

Purchase: $100
