Very nice and warm Jacket

I had a nice Merrell Down Jacket I loved that was needing to be replaced after a few years so I set out for a replacement. After lots of review reading and checking, I ended up here with the Mountain Hardwear Jacket. I like the materials and it seemed a little water repellent right out of the box. The fit is a little larger then my Merrell and it wasn't as contoured but still a good fit. The hood is a nice fit that doesn't need any drawstrings to stay in place. I tested it by taking the dog for a walk on a nice 10 degree windy night with just a long sleeve t-shirt underneath. The jacket did a pretty good job blocking the wind but not perfect but the warmth was very good and I was comfortable from start to finish which I can't say for the warn down Merrell I have (not as warm as it was a few years ago). I think this will be a keep for a few years
