The Columbia Women's Earth Explorer Shell Jacket is a rain jacket for wearing when the forecast calls for some stormy weather. The outer fabric is made with Omni-Tech which makes the jacket waterproof and breathable, so while you're going for a mid day hike or just running some errands on a rainy day you'll stay dry, and your body will be able to breathe with air circulating through the jacket. The hood, hem, and cuffs are all adjustable meaning that you can tune the jacket for a more custom fit, and the zippered hand pockets offer a secure place to store your phone, wallet, keys, and any other of your everyday items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Coat for Trip I purchased this in the blue for our 9-day land trip to Alaska in July 2022. The rain had moved in and we wore our rain coats often from the Arctic Circle to Fairbanks to Denali to Anchorage to Sitka. I'm between sizes 1x & 2x, so sized up to layer. When layering was needed, I used a Benton Springs Fleece Vest or Columbia shirt with Columbia hoodie. When it was warmer, I unzipped the arms to keep the mosquitos out and stay cooler. This plus rain pants kept me dry and comfortable when out walking in the pouring rain. It packed up small to carry in a my daypack when not worn. It was the perfect choice for this trip! Love this coat! I know this coat will get a lot of use here in Oregon as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit I chose a medium so I could fit extra layers under the coat when it gets cold. So far this jacket has held up to the New England rainy season. The zipper pulls under the arm pit help make the jacket breathable for hiking. If you're even considering this coat this is your sign to get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good rain jacket Good rain jacket. Almost reminds me of gortex on the inside. Won’t keep you warm but will keep you dry. No lining so it is a little clammy on if you sweat and it’s colder. So it would be nicer if it was lined. But still a good jacket. The peach is a little brighter in person I thought it would be more muted. Still a good jacket. It does run a little bit big so I would have been disappointed if I wanted it more fitted. But I don’t mind my jackets a little bit big because I could wear a fleece Or sweater under it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice rain jacket Love my new rain jacket! I'm 5'8", 130 lbs with broad shoulders and got a medium. Fits true to size, sleeves are a tad long but can be tightened with Velcro on cuffs. Got the Coral color and it's a brighter orange than the photo on the website, but still a soft color. Plenty of room for layering. Looks nice on and is waterproof.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I took this to the rainforest This jacket was amazing. I traveled to the rainforest during the rainy season. Surprisingly, we didn't get rain. I knew this was water proof and would keep me warm, but I'm impressed that it was easy to vent and also kept me cool when it wasn't serving it's main purpose. The bugs were as insane as you may imagine and the cuffs on the sleeves secure tightly to your wrists without discomfort. It moves easily and is great to layer under, too. Upon returning home I got to use it as a rain coat and can confirm it's excellent waterproof quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Explorer Shell This shell was exactly what I was looking for. It is lightweight, soft and easy to fold for packing, a good length (to the hips and at the sleeves), and exactly the color I was wanting. Perfect for those warmer wet days, and room to layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Color is even better in person than online. Great quality. Sizing is true. Thankful the sleeves are a hair long to keep my hands dry. Appreciate the taller neck and large hood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I sized up but wearing it with a sweatshirt I sized up on this one but I wanted to be able to wear it with a sweatshirt or sweater and it worked perfectly. It's thin but not packable which is what I wanted.
