Closeouts. When we say Mountain Hardwear's Quark II jacket is lightweight, we mean it! Weighing in at a feathery 9 oz., it features a waterproof breathable Conduit® membrane that seals out water but lets perspiration escape from inside.

    I planned on using this jacket as an outer layer with down layer inside. But the jacket fabric was too thin to do anything more than a plastic poncho would.

    Great 2-3 season jacket. Perfect for summer backpacking or, really, any season high-intensity activity because it packs up so small, is totally waterproof and extremely breathable. Of course, the material is incredibly thin, so it's probably not going to hold up over time like most other shells out there, and I'd probably bring a different jacket if I knew I'd be bushwhacking a ton. Still, it's held up great for me so far. Zippers may be flimsier than others out there, but it's ultra-lightweight... so, duh, be careful with it!

    Great shell for the price. Incredibly light-weight and yet waterproof. For most women, I would imagine the jacket may be snug at the hips - be warned it is definitely fitted. I am petite, so it was fine, but keep that in mind.

    As an avid mountain hiker I like to have a jacket which fits easily into my backpack. The lightweight of the jacket is great, however the fit is too tight. Hood does not roll up. It is too expensive.
