Verified Buyer Reviewed by Puget Sound Paddler from Anderson Island, Washington on Thursday, November 22, 2012
I live on an island in Puget Sound (lots of rain). I have tried many jackets-some too light, some too heavy-but the Mt Hardware is the perfect, all-around jacket for me. Length is perfect for getting in and out of the Jeep, the hood design is user-friendly. Great jacket. Gets lots of comments from o... Read More

  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by PA Jim from Port Angeles on Wednesday, June 11, 2014
    I bought it for my morning walks along the waterfront as a waterproof windbreaker, but it is so much more than that. The Dry Q Elite fabric is superior to anything else I have ever owned. Totally waterproof and total breathability too. The feel of the fabric is soft and it wears comfortably, not stiff like a regular 'rain jacket'. This jacket even has the armpit zippers for extra-strenuous activity. The brim on the hood means I don't have to wear a ball cap under the hood to keep the rain from running down onto my face, and the unique rear neck bungee adjustment makes for a perfect fit on the hood. The extra inch in sleeve length combined with the adjustable cuffs equates to ease of arm movement, especially comfortable for using trekking/snowshoe poles. The cuff adjustments are easy to use and feel comfortable even when snug. The warm fuzzy lined hand pockets were a must for me on my cold and wet morning walks. I ordered the size that was correct for my chest and hips, and because I have a large waist I was concerned about whether it would fit me comfortably. But there is ample room so that I can wear the fleece liner from my heavy winter parka under it, without it being too snug. I plan to use that combination for snowshoeing this next winter. I would have to say it is the best weather shell I have ever owned!

    I purchased this jacket to replace my black DryQ that was stolen. My new blue Ampato jacket has plenty of well-beingplaced pockets and has kept me dry under some very nasty conditions. This jacket is much lighter than traditional rain-proof outerwear. Buy this jacket if you like dry comfort with great looks. Keep your eyes on it though, or you may need to replace yours as well.

  • Question “Is this jacket insulated?”
    Asked on 6/22/2014 12:14:13 PM by Just Wondering from Massachusetts
    • Answer No
      Answered on 6/22/2014 12:39:54 PM by PA Jim from Port Angeles, WA
    • Answer No, This Is A Fairly Thin Rain Jacket With No Insulation. It's Well Made With Nice Details But It's Quite Light.
      Answered on 6/22/2014 6:26:14 PM by George from NY
    • Answer No insulation. This lightweight jacket is a wind and water blocker. I just spent a very wet weekend in Northern Wisconsin. I should say the weather was wet, but I was not. Get this jacket if you need protection from bad weather down to 40 degrees F. Any colder, use it as part of your layering routine. Hope this info helps.

  • Question “what are the length of sleeves and chest size for the XL an 2XL?”
    Asked on 2/12/2014 11:25:11 AM by Nikoloz from Tbilisi, Georgia
    • Answer I'm not sure of the exact measurements, but I can say I bought an XL, I'm 6'1", 170lbs and the arms and chest are more than large enough for me to fit 2 bulky layers of down, a thin fleece, and a thin base layer underneath with out feeling like it's making the sleeves too short or tight in the chest and back. This jacket is a great layering piece, I've only used it as a winter shell so far and I've put it through down pours and blizzard conditions both with amazing results. Do not expect an athletic fit as the cut is rather billowy, the pictures make it look much more form fitting than it is( which is not at all). In closing, the mountain hardwear ampato is generously cut all the way around so if you're just using it as a light rain jacket and you're around my size you'd be better off with a medium. Hope this helps.
