Great jacket. Its a little on the bright side. I ordered a medium and it fits my 5'9" 160lb very well.

    I really wanted to like this one, but it went back. Wore it skiing twice, really disappointed with the breathability on this jacket. Both days were powder days in the low 20's, couldn't seem to dissipate the heat or moisture generated by hard top to bottom runs. I had no insulation layer underneath, compression tank and a light t-shirt only. Really suffers from the lack of pit-zips.I've got another Dry-Q elite shell that has pit zips and the difference is night and day. Fit was good ( for me) 5'9" 200, XL left room for light fleece or down layer if needed, I like a little room inside.

    Solid wind and water shield has some insulation but not much. This jacket reminds me of the military gore tex ECWS jacket but not in camo and no velcro map pockets. Size is a touch longer in hem and sleeve length than I expected. Jacket has no real insulation but has enough layers that it will keep in some heat. About perfect when temps are about 50F (10C) with light to moderate activity. Used during 30F (0C) with high winds and was chilled across shoulders and arms, now wear a fleece layer under for those conditions.
    Main zipper is two way, one can unzip from the bottom to allow more leg/hip movement.
    NO pit zips. The handwarmer pockets will function like a pit zip and are far back so that one's arm will likely block light rain.
    Hood has a few adjustments available, it is large so it will cover helmet but can be adjusted to be OK with just one's head. Large enough to sometimes be bothersome when not in use.
    Chest pocket larger than expected, about 9" x 6" (23cm x 16cm).
    Sleeves cut long, cuff is adjustable. I found the long sleeves useful, great range of motion for arms, also allows to pull hands into the sleeve for protection from rain and wind if needed.
    Length is a bit long so it protects hips but zipper bottoms out low and one needs to get under jacket to access trouser pockets.

    meets my expectations in every way. Only gave it four stars because I haven't worn it for skiing yet, but I anticipate a good experience. Fit is awesome - 6'0", 195 lbs, large, I'm a fairly muscular build. I don't expect I'll be able to get a lot of fluffy layers under it, though. I will complain a little about the persistent crease mid-garmet from shipping, not that it's a big issue. If it were folded in a different spot, the crease wouldn't be so bad.

About Mountain Hardwear

Starting back in 1993, a small group of outdoor industry mavericks broke away from the pack to follow a less-traveled path. From the very beginning, the primary goal of Mountain Hardwear was to create an outdoor gear brand with a sharp focus on technology-driven design, superior performance and hardcore reliability. The result of this function-first mentality has been an array of incredible Mountain Hardwear jackets, clothing, tents, backpacks, sleeping bags and accessories. Today, after more than two decades of industry-leading innovation, Mountain Hardwear continues to set new benchmarks for dependability in the toughest conditions on the planet.
