this is a very light weight jacket. It really doesnt look that great, however it is great for packing while backpacking, because it does break the wind, and weighs next to nothing, and can pack down to smaller than the size of your fist.

I sadly lost a similar Mtn Hardwear jacket while travelling which I really liked. Nylon jackets are invaluable for being lightweight, flat packing, warm and dry. My previous jacket was much better than this new model from Mtn Hardware. The jacket has no venting and only two side pockets. The color is supposed to be black but the nylon body is more dark grey although the cuffs and collar are black. So there seems to be a color matching fabric problem. Overall I'm disappointed with the quality and design of this jacket and wish I could replace the earlier model which I lost.
