Excellent well made jacket. Keeps me extremely warm even with just a tshirt underneath in 10-15 degree weather. Hood fits over bike helmet. Artificial down is lightweight and not too puffy unlike regular down jackets. Highly recommended.

    This jacket is thinner than I was expecting . This is "not" a bad thing ,whereas it is still very warm and highly packable !! Also,this picture far from does this jacket justice . The light blue bottom is much nicer and a shinier blue !! Oh yeah , in m.p.o this jacket runs a little larger than size . I'm 5'9" , 44 chest , 35 waist and big rump and this jacket in xl runs big for an XL compared to other XL I have from Marmot , Columbia, Trew , O.R , or other ( Kelvinator) MH that I have or have tried on . In final , the 4 star was given by me "NOT" because of some error or something I find lacking . I would just save a 5 for over the top , mega cool item's that would have blown me away somehow !!

    I'm a big guy, 6'2" 230lb and wear a xxl in all Mountain Hardware. Got this in xxl and it was enormous in the body. The arms fit well so I didn't feel comfortable going with a xl. Exchanged for the compressor which fits perfectly. Only give it 3 stars for size, material and quality are 5 stars.

    I bought this jacket because it has the most insulation of any synthetic filled jacket of its kind. I wore it outside on a cold winter night (below 30 F) and I was not warm even though I was completely dry. I switched to a down jacket that weighs half as much and I was instantly much more comfortable. If I had been wet (which is why I was in the market for synthetic fill) I would have been freezing and miserable. I just bought a $600 Arcteryx Dually Belay Parka and it isn't particularly warm by itself. Did I mention that I get cold easily? This is my solution: I bought the next model down in the Arcteryx line called the "Solo" and I use that as an inner jacket and the dually as an outer jacket (both size large). They fit together very well, they keep me more than twice as warm as either jacket alone (they are, in fact, as warm as my heavy down parka). I have not tried this combo out with them saturated with water yet but that test is coming this week or next.

    Well made! Synthetic is more practical for our teenaged son than down. Very warm and pockets help him keep track of hats, gloves, etc.

    I am a 6'2" 200lbs guy with a 32" waist and 45" Chest. The XL is way too loose and roomy around the waist, and the shoulders are too tight. Jacket felt really warm and looked better than the pics. Absolutly loved the jacket just not the fit had same problem with the Columbia's. Marmot's XL Jackets fit great (waist) along with the Marker L Jackets Too (Shoulders)

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.
