The most waterproof and breathable parker for larger hikers. Have own this parka for one year and I am amazed at well the claim has made about new breathable material and waterproofness. Got the jacket on sale before taking jacket to Glacier & Mt. Rainier and then Austrian Alps at 10K altitude. I ho... Read More

    I bought this jacket to use more for a wind breaker and its waterproof abilities in cooler days. For those that own one, I tend to wear my Mountain Hardwear Monkey Man jacket until 55 F and then need something else till the upper 60's. This is where I thought this jacket would work. I am 6'2" and 190 lbs. and ordered this jacket in a Large. I was concerned about the sleeve length as long sleeves tend to be short when I extend out my hands. Thankfully this jacket accommodates that issue. The jacket is very comfortable and breathable. I decided to test it while in "warmer" weather and on a brisk walk with the family. It was windy, so that would be a good test too. The temps were in the low 70's. I was pleasantly surprised on how well it breathed. I didn't feel hot, warm, clammy, or sweaty at all. The wind never pierced through the jacket either. As some other reviewers pointed out, it is on the larger side. However, that was fine for me as I could easily wear the Mountain Hardwear Monkey Man jacket underneath on colder days and make a nice layering system. Where does it feel "larger" you may ask? For me it tends to be around my upper torso. It does not look "poofy" or too "baggy" on me according to me wife. Just keep in mind this would make a great outer layer and I plan to use it that way as I discussed earlier. I would highly recommend it especially if you can get a great coupon code for this jacket. I am sure I will get many years out of this jacket.

    I live in Hawai'i, on the north shore of Kaua'i. The parka is wonderful protection for the 5 to 20 minute downpours that we receive weekly if not daily during winter and spring. The pit zips provide great ventilation in our climate, there are many pockets inside and out that protect your items. The parka is well constructed, the seams well sealed and if you do not go rock or mountain climbing daily, you will get many years of use. Follow the cleaning instructions(tip, use a powered detergent, sparingly, and after a few years Nixwax repellent).

    First off, I love the feel of the fabric and the non-restrictive fit...The is the most comfortable Parka I have ever worn and I have had many. I tried this on with all my fleeces and never did I feel restricted or binding anywear. I tried it on with poly fill vest and polyfill MH compresor jacket and hunker down vest and still felt confortable. I have not had a chance to try this in any cold weather but I did get a chance to wear it in a 80 degree rain strom and I was in awe as to this fabrics beathability. It shed water very well and with the pits zips open I wasnt overheated even in 80 degree weather. I olny fear this parka may be too cold in winter unless active. I will post another review once I use this parka in the field.

    I wanted to add a note as to this parkas performance. This weekend I went camping and it was a horrible 98 degrees with 90% humidity I knew there was a chance of rain and decided to take my my exposure parka instead of my epic jacket just in case it rained and so i could once again test its performance...It turned out better than I imagined we were hit with a severe thunder storm that trashed our tent we had 100 mile an hour wind gust and heavy torrential rain and pea sized hail. We had to evac the tent and get out from under the trees because of lighting. I was amazed at how well this parka performed it never leaked and not once did i get over heated or clammy while running around the camp site stowing gear and equipment so the storm would not carry it away. we sat in a depression just bellow a clearing for over 3 hours waiting for the lightning to stop in what we later found out over the weather radio were 100 mile an hour wind gusts and hail we never saw a tornado but figured the best protection would be this depression. I could feel the sting of the hail on my back and my wife wore her epic jacket and actualy had to put on her back pack to stop the hurting from the hail after the storm passed and we made it back to our campsite we found our tent torn up from big branches that had gotten tangled in the rain fly and due to wind just tore holes every where. Thanks mountain hardwear for the great products like DryQ elite it was flawless I could not ask for a better product. The only other time I have felt rain like this was in a Florida Huricane and I had was a Poncho

    • Answer It is just a waterproof shell. And so far a good one.
      Answered on 3/16/2014 2:17:36 PM by DJ from Chicago
    • Answer There is no insulation. It is just a shell. I where it over a Columbia Fleece, and with Under Armour and another long sleeve heavier layer. And I am warm in temperatures down to 15F. And there is enough room to layer even more. I love the jacket. Great wind resistance. You stay absolutely dry. Go to retailmenot.com and find a big coupon's and buy it. I got mine for about 120. Its a steal. The only negative I have is the zipper isn't great. But not bad enough to pass on the jacket.

    • Answer No insulation.

      It's a 3-layer rain jacket.

    • Answer IT IS JUST A SHELL, NO INSULATION BUT ROOMY ENOUGH TO LAYER UP IN
      Answered on 3/16/2014 5:13:55 PM by PROFESSIONAL GUIDE from CALIFORNIA
    • Answer It does not have insulation, but it is double lined, and it is surprisingly warm for a non-insulated jacket. That being said, this is a shell, and if it gets below 25 degrees or so, you will want additional layers. I've skied with it in 32 degree weather with a baselayer and midlayer.

    • Answer Just a shell, I live in Minnesota and this year was one of the coldest on record. The jacket kept the winds out and if felt warmer that just a shell, I wore it often this winter wearing a variety of layers, it is very roomy and comfortable. Hope this helps.

  • Question “Does the hood fit over a ski helmet?”
    Asked on 12/1/2013 10:51:41 PM by Pete from UT from Utah
    • Answer I just looked at mine and from my perspective, neither a ski or climbing helmet will fit. Try the North Face Goretex Jackets, the ones I have owned had huge hoods.

    • Answer I looked at mine, and mine fits over a helmet, but just barely. If you have a large head, maybe it would be difficult.
