This is a great jacket. Sizing seems to be a bit on the large side, but I don't mind as I'm using this in colder weather when I'll be layering anyway.

I think some people order jackets like this and expect to simultaneously feel every breeze when they want to while being impervious to moisture. T... Read More

    great shell jacket - water (ventia dry) & wind proof. Comfortable hiking in 40deg and light rain as well as with base layers skiing in 15-20deg temps. Oversized hood accommodates a helmet so a bit large if not wearing helmet. A quality technical shell and great overall value.

    This jacket is as advertised - a waterproof and breathable softshell. I haven't truly tested the breathability yet, but it withstands water very well. The hood is roomy and easily adjustable and the pit zips are helpful. My only small criticism is that the sleeves are a little baggy, but this is minor and is probably to allow for easier layering. Overall it's a great jacket and at discount, quite a bargain.

    Great fit, nice weight, and waterproof to boot. I haven't tested it yet in a major storm but it's held up in light Seattle rain.

    I haven't gotten to take it out in the extremes yet, but it did keep me warm and dry during very constant rain. This jacket is very comfortable and feels quite interesting to the touch. I saw other reviews say that it doesn't provide any warmth, but I found it kept me very warm (although I do tend to run on the warm side) on a blustery and rainy day. Pockets are nice and roomy, and kept things dry in the rain. I am 5'9 and 200 and went with the large. The medium size fit, but didn't leave much room to layer underneath. I have other OR products, and this fit was similar to those. The only small problem I have with it is that the hood is very large if you aren't wearing a helmet, but that is really just splitting hairs and I am sure I will appreciate that when I do wear a helmet. Overall I am extremely pleased with it and would happily suggest it.

    I don't know of too many soft shell jackets with pit zips, which is what attracted me to the Mithrilite. It also claims to be waterproof--and it certainly did bead water nicely when I gave it the faucet test. I ordered a large, which is my usual size and it's definitely meant for layering. I thought the extra room, while helpful for the trail, looked a little unkempt for use around town so I sent it back. (If I had a beer gut, this thing would be great!) It's also a bit heavy for backpacking; although, probably great for day hikes in the cold. Tough call. Might reorder if I gain some weight this winter...

    • Answer it could protect wind highly i think

    • Answer It's pretty good in the wind, although I would not characterize it as wind "proof". A hard shell provides greater protection from the wind, but this garment is more comfortable. I would not select it for a mountaineering trip, but it's more than adequate for day-to-day weather.

    • Answer Yes, it's windproof, but in colder weather you will obviously want an insulating layer.
