cougar peaks jacket
November 02, 2011
this jacket is very nice, it is just what i was searching for, not too heavy, but not so lite, with excellent wind resistance, i have yet to use it in rain, the pockets are nice and roomy and in the right place. i would prefer the hood to be a roll down instead of in the collar, but other than that i really like it, i just might get another one in a different color.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
November 10, 2010
It's stylish yet practical. I work in the Middle East and in the rainy season you need something that holds off the rain but won't make you sweat and this is perfect.
December 28, 2011
I was shocked when the item arrived so quickly. But even more so when I tried the item on. Fit and style was perfect! I would order from you again in a heartbeat.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Great value, Cons: none

This jacket serves as winter jacket for my husband. He wears it everyday......when the weather get chilly, he just wear a fleece underneath. Great jacket for North Texas weather. I will buy more for his upcoming Birthday.
Great Jacket for Great Price
November 18, 2009
This was my first purchase from Altrec.com. I was really impressed with the jacket. Its light-weight but also does it job by keeping you warm and dry.
December 23, 2009
At first, I wasn't sure about this jacket because of it's extremely low price. But when I tried it on, it was simply amazing! Water literally rolls off of it (and you can use it as an improvised water scooper) and what's more surprising is that it actually keeps you warm, despite how thin it is. I've also worn this when it was 37 degrees (considered cold here) with just a tee-shirt underneath. I would highly recommend this for anyone who would like a grab-and-go jacket for anything from rain, wind, or cold. I'll be wearing this when I go skiing and I'm sure this jacket will measure up!
Christmas Gift.....Came Quickly
December 20, 2009
While I have not given the gift, the jacket I ordered was exactly as expected. I am sure he will love it.
September 22, 2010
I HAVE BOUGHT THIS JACKET IN ALMOST EVERY COLOR THEY HAVE TO PURCHASE. IT IS VERY COMFORTABLE AND LIGHT BUT YET KEEPS YOU WARM!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value
October 30, 2009
My daughter ordered this for her boyfriend for Christmas in the navy blue. Very nice jacket, lightweight, color was great and Columbia showed up very nice. Size was a true fit. Unbeatable price.
Great for the price
February 25, 2010
Very comfortable. You can wear many layers and use this jacket as a very last insulating layer.
Great buy Great jacket
October 03, 2009
Can't find wind breaker jackets anywhere these days for some reason. Did an internet search and found Altrec had plenty to choose from at great prices. Shipped fast. Awesome shopping experience!!

perfect water jacket ever
February 20, 2012
this is a very good water proof jacket ,quality build is exellent, very good price too, but is a little bit long at small size, that cause the chest pocket looks lower than normal.any way i like it.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: Low performance
lightweight and good rain/wind protection
February 24, 2010
My boys love these jackets! They should be good for year-round wear!
January 15, 2010
First of all about Columbia Mens Nordic Point Full-Zip Fleece Jacket. I own several other light weigh fleeces and I was looking for one more a comfortable light weight fleece. I really like the fleece feel. Three outside zipper pocket is ok, but it would be nice if they had an inside pocket. Bottom line for me Columbia fleece Jackets is the best. Now about Cougar Peaks. For me Columbia Sportswear Men's Cougar Peaks II Jacket is number 5 ( the best ), provides for me good protection from water. This water-resistant HydroPlus nylon is good thing, and its very light.
Everything my husband wanted in the jacket.
January 03, 2010
Breathable, light, and keeps the wind out. Fits well, and has room for a sweater or sweatshirt underneath if needed without looking too big or bulky. Husband is very pleased with it.
Great price. Quick shipping.
October 06, 2009
Columbia is a great brand. This jacket has the same great quality as the name has always suggested.
January 22, 2012
This jacket is very comfortable. Great for outdoor activities that require resistance to water and wind. Comfortable fit and easy portability. Very convenient for this price.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Great value
light and good fitting
August 31, 2010
This product is good fitting and water-repellent and wind-breaker. it is good to go out in windy or rainy days and very light to carry in your bag. If you are looking a light one I recommended this jacket, if you wanna a heavy one it is not yours. I liked it so much.
January 10, 2010
Fits well light weight compress to small size . perfect for backpackiong
Not a very practical shell.
October 16, 2010
You get what you pay for. Don't plan on doing anything remotely active while wearing this shell. I used it while downhill skiing at a resort. Despite never feeling overheated, I ended up damp under the shell after one run. It does not breathe.Pros: Great value, Cons: Low performance
good rain jacket
October 13, 2010
i bought this to my husband. and he really like it light weight and able to store compact. easy to cleanPros: Ease of use
October 17, 2009
Great jacket and great price. Didn't ship as fast as I supposed it would but no problem with that.
October 06, 2009
For $30 you cannot beat this jacket. The material is thin and it is an excellent windbreaker. I haven't used it in the rain yet, but it is surprisingly warm for a thin windbreaker. My only complaint is that I bought it in black and in the picture the jacket says "Columbia" in white stitching but on the actual jacket it is stitched in black. Other than that, it rocks.
January 05, 2010
Thank you for my recent order for my son-he really enjoys this jacket-he has been wearing it a lot for rainy days and fishing.
January 07, 2011
My father likes it very much. He is 173cm, 65kg. The Size S fits him well. I will recommend this to my friend.Pros: Ease of use, Great value
January 09, 2012
This Jacket is great, I feel it is suitable and comfortable, I is good for me when I am outside and take a walk. it is good windproof and water-resistant protection
Perfect for what I needed it for
March 12, 2010
I was heading to Brazil and the fore[ca-st] was rain and hot (ended up raining every day). I needed a light weight rain coat. On the way to the airport I layered a hoody under it and it handled the February Michigan cold just fine. When we were in Brazil it kept me dry through everything from torrential downpours to light rain (while really hot and muggy). I was dry and comfortable for the most part. I was even able to wear it in the evening when it cooled down and I didn't look like I was wearing a ridiculous rain coat. I definitely recommend this jacket.
Good product, just not for my purpose
October 16, 2009
I ordered this jacket because I needed an inexpensive, high-quality rain jacket to ride my bike to campus in harsh conditions. It felt like a good jacket to wear if its just a little chilly, windy, or if you want to sweat a little more; however, it doesn't look like it will stop the elements as well as the thunderstorm jacket.
Decent jacket for the price
April 01, 2010
Good rain jacket and light weight. Thin enough to be packed in a backpack.
January 31, 2010
After prolonged exposure to rain (more than two hours) the moisture tends to seep through. However, it is quite warm for an uninsulated jacket and for the most part it keeps out the wind. For the price it is a nice find.
Great Jacket ant Service
October 27, 2009
This jacket is of a great quality, not to mention the great price! The hood stows away for those days when it's not raining and it's waterproof enough to wear when it's raining heavily. Love this!
Lightweight jacket for tropical weather
January 21, 2010
I enjoy hiking in the tropical forest, but it is sometimes a rain forest, cloud forest or even the dry forest. This is the perfect jacket for all this ecosystems: lightweight, rainproof and loose-fitted if you want to add layers (fleece, cotton, wool, etc.) underneath. I use it in urban areas as well, because it is also good looking and "cool".
Nice addition to light rainwear
October 27, 2010
This is a classic Columbia garment. True to fit. Cut a little a generous, but most would know who own Columbia. Very good for rain in mild weather conditions. Styling is nice, and the price couldn't be any better. Would buy again. Good purchase.Pros: Great design, Ease of use, Great value
A good deal!
October 21, 2011
The performance is really good. I tried it in the rain and basically a really excellent water protection. The price is good and free shipping is a plus! However, the only problem is that it is a little larger than usual. Besides, it is a little slight.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
good but a little bit large
October 12, 2010
The quality is very good but a little bit larger than normal size. If you want to buy this coat maybe you can choose a smaller size.
March 29, 2010
I needed a jacket for when the weather is misty, like a light rain fall. This jacket fit the bill. The water drops just roll off of it. It also blocks wind. I guess you can call it a water-proof windbreaker. Too light for heavy storms; you'll definitely need something much more "heavy duty" for that. If what you're searching for is something comfortable, packable and suitable for a cool drizzling day (or night), the Columbia Men's Cougar Peaks II Jacket is JUST WHAT YOU NEED.
December 16, 2011
This jacket is very comfortable. It has back vents that is helpful sometimes. It seems waterproof except for the seams and zipper. Moisture doesn't escape from the sleeves, so you might want to wear a long sleeved inner layer. Since it's very lightweight and packs down very small, it's a good one to carry on day hikes.
January 08, 2012
I bought it for my boyfriend. He likes it very much. it's soft and light. The temperature outside is about 20 degree. It's comfortable to wear it, especially in spring and fall.Pros: Ease of use
December 16, 2009
It fits well and slips on easy, doesn't keep you that warm, but its more of a everyday jacket than a winter one. I like it Easy to clean and practically stain proof
January 17, 2010
This is my first columbia jacket, I tell you it was a great choice, the jacket fits well,light weight, water resistant, nice color.I really enjoy wearing this jacket anytime.
A poor replacement for the Kelly Flats.
July 04, 2010
The pockets in the Cougar Peaks II are poly mesh, not solid nylon like the Kelly Flats. They will not last a week for me. No big interior pockets as in the Kelly Flats.
Nice outer layer
November 24, 2010
Works very well as a wind breaker, water repellent but not water proof. Add a light sweater underneath and it's a three season jacket. Over all a good light shell.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
March 10, 2010
Light weight; warmer than expected.
March 17, 2010
great rain jacket for me !;-)
keeps wind and rain OUT
November 06, 2009
I always have had good luck with Columbia products; quality is well above average and they stand firmly behind their products. For this reason, I excluded jackets from other companies while looking for a new windbreaker because I knew I could expect good things from Columbia. As lightweight jackets go, this one functions nearly perfectly. Just put a microfleece on underneath and you're ready for wind and rain. Ventilation could be a bit better, but that would require some zippered vents, which would drive up the cost. With the back vent, ventilation is adequate. Adjustable cuffs are also missing, but for the price, there is probably no better jacket of this kind available, unless you should get rather lucky at a second-hand store.
December 25, 2010
Nice lightweight jacket for wind and water protection. Breathable good jacket for hiking in mild to cool weather.Pros: Great value
ok but not great.
June 13, 2010
You get what you pay for, it's cheap and average. Just a small upper back mesh lining but it's light weight and fold-able. I still can't figure out if it was meant for folding into the pocket. Mesh pockets are nice. Remember there is no insulation in this jacket at all and very little room for an thick under layer if you buy your exact size. Buy one size bigger if you want to use as a shell in cooler weather. There is a lack of ample ventilation in this jacket too, no armpit vents just a small upper back vent where the mesh is located. I have not tested it in heavy rain just drizzle and it works for that.
This is a very high quality jacket.
February 16, 2010
Even though I am going to look for a better insulated jacket due to the weather changes, this item quality is very high, it will protect better than other that I used before. I will recommended to anyone.
good value for money
October 26, 2009
This my first time to purchase here. I'm satisfied with the quality of the coat. It prevents the rain and cold, though it is very thin.
Nice jacket; fast shipping
March 27, 2010
Nice light weight water proof windbreaker. Arrived very quickly via the basic ground shipping method.
Just what I was looking for!
March 29, 2010
Had to look long and hard to find what I wanted, and now that I have it, it's perfect. The jacket is well made and the color is a nice blue.
Excellent but a little big
January 20, 2011
I'm 5'7 slim and found the small to be a little long vertically by about an inch. Overall it is lightweight and can easily be stored in the pocket of your backpack. Living in windy Seattle- I usually carry this jacket around instead of an umbrella. It works great against the wind and rain.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
September 08, 2011
Very Comfortable and light, what it make that is easy to carry on. Therefore very convenient, its price is so good that i bought three jacket. The Shipping is too quickly, what make me so glad.Pros: Great design, Build quality
Excellent Jacket not sure why different prices
January 25, 2010
I think these are excellent jackets, got 2, black & navy blue, as another review, black had black logo stitching which doesn't make sense since you can't see logo. Light weight yet keeps you warm, not in major cold but will do windy to chilly, not freezing. Wish the collar did not pop up so much with hood in, lining a little thicker, & the pocket reinforced to hold w/o worry might make hole. but minor. Not sure why the difference in prices.
Great jacket for the price!
February 16, 2011
Fits well, good overall windbreaker - the self-contained zipper pocket is a nice touch - went with the all-black which keeps it warm in the winter Colorado sun - lightweight and comfortable!Pros: Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
Great for the price!
January 08, 2010
Looks just like the picture, color is very close to the display, easy to care for. Great buy, worth the money!
