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

  • “i am 5'6 210 will the 2xl be way to big for me? ”
    Asked by lbolin from AR on 6/8/2015 10:00:11 PM
    • Greeetings. I am 6 ft 3 inches and 230 lbs. I purchased two ampato jackets size XXL. The XXL jackets were roomy on me, which is what I wanted so that I could layer under the jackets. The sleeves are long on me, which is what I wanted. I wear 36 inch long sleeves on my shirts and jackets. If you do not wear at least 36 inch long sleeves on your shirts and jackets, I would suggest size XL.

    • I bought this jacket a few months ago- so far it's great- it is a little big though- I'm 5'10" and about 215 and the XL is almost too big for me- I kept it because I like to layer- so I'm good with the extra room.

    • I believe the Mountain Hardware Ampato Dry.Q Elite Jacket will fit you well around your girth, and the length is probably just right. I am 5'10" and 240 lbs, and the coat fits me well, not too big, and not too tight. Length is a little long in the sleeves, but I would have added one more inch to the bottom edge. Fit is very good around the shoulders with good room to move, and there is room for a layer underneath allowing it to be worn in colder temperatures. Also, it has "pit-zips" to help the moisture escape in high humid conditions. Most importantly, the coat does great in what it was designed, keeping you dry in wet weather. I have worn it on wet hiking trails and trips to the mall, and never had a problem. MH is a great name in outdoor gear, and this maintains that reputation. I think it is worth ordering and trying it on. You can always return it.

  • “Is this jacket wind proof?”
    Asked by Outdoors Person from Upstate NY on 2/17/2015 5:12:18 PM
    • Yes!
      All Dry Q Elite membranes are completely wind and waterproof. This is a GREAT jacket for the price!

    • No, this jacket is not wind proof as in having Gore wind stopper material in the garment, but it is a tough coat and dies well to keep wind out.

    • it seems to be. Had it out this weekend in -8F with 20+ mph winds, and didn't notice any draftiness. Did have 3 base layers and a wool fleece on under it.

    • I have not spent time outside in high wind conditions. Other people have posted reviews stating that because of the breath-ability of Dry Q Elite they wear an additional base layer under the jacket when they go skiing. People can really feel the air infiltration when they are on the chair lifts at ski resorts. I live in Davis, CA and I use my two Ampato jackets as three season water proof shells. They are great three season jackets, especially at STP prices. I would recommend a jacket similar to the MH Minalist if you want a more wind proof water proof shell. Cheers.

    • Well, I wasn't sure. So I wore just the jacket outside on a cooler, windy morning in Florida. The temp. was around 50 degrees. It was definitely warm enough,but I did feel a slight coolness on the gusting winds. I would say not 100% wind proof. It's very close though. Excellent jacket and plenty of room for layers.

  • “What's up with the new colors on the Ampato. They have a different zipper and no snaps at top and bottom. Is it a newer/older version of the Ampato, or is it an entirely different model?”

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.
