Verified Buyer Reviewed by JM from NYC on Saturday, December 30, 2017Have the previous version, got this as a gift for my bro. Still well made, excellent materials. The chest pockets have been raised, and the pit zips removed: the forner is great for access with a pack on, the latter is a downgrade. Always have liked the jacket's thinner windstopper materials as they produce less weight and bulk.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Say No to Sugar from The DMV on Tuesday, December 12, 2017Great coat. Well made. Keeps you warm and in style.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Doug_O from Washington on Tuesday, September 26, 2017Had one of the tech jackets when they used to be gore wind stopper and had the pit zips. Loved the jacket but lost it; hope this jacket is similar for warmth. I ordered a large which I normally get but had to return it for a medium since it was way too big. Have had many Mountain Hardware jackets and pants and have never been let down.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by UnderTheRadar from Illinois on Saturday, March 4, 2017Purchased this to replace similar but slightly different Mountain Hardware jacket that I have used for several years. My current jacket starting to show wear in the elbows so decided to replace it. The two jackets look very similar.
This jacket has pockets that are placed for harness or backpack which is further back than normal. Hand warmer pockets also lack a storm flap which allows some air transfer in high wind. Jacket lacks pit zips, but the hand warmer pockets do vent heat OK, which is good and bad. I believe ,but not certain, the pocket is not airshield so an open pocket transfers heat, wind and likely water. Vent heat when desired is good. But pockets zips from top so when you want to place hand into pocket the pocket must be fully open (25cm/10in zip) which is loosing heat, could be bad.
Chest pocket does have a storm flap and is good size (10cm/6in square). Perhaps too wide since my sunglasses will drop to bottom and rest sideways.
Fine job of blocking wind for a fleece but does not stop wind. Arms and yoke do well with shedding rain. Fleece front and back will hold water but keep water out.
I found the sleeves and length just a bit longer than expected. Chest and waist is sized about what I would expect.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by JonE from New Mexico on Sunday, February 12, 2017Wanted a wind-proof fleece jacket for less than a hundred bucks. This is one of a few choices that I found, and overall I'm happy with it.
Most of the criticisms I've read seem valid, but don't bother me. I have a 16-1/4 inch neck; zipped up the fit there is snug but comfortable, and provides excellent neck-sulation. It is a little roomy in the abdomen and snug at the pits, but not grossly so. I wear an "L" in most jackets, and this fit was acceptable. I like the high side pockets.
I'm not fond of ostentatiously branded merchandise. This one screams its MH logo, making that my least favorite feature. But the price was right so whattaya gonna do?
Question & Answer

The information about fleece weight is not given.
No, it is really light, like 100 weight with a wind blocker. Breathable and warm since wind does not go through.
“With the size of most if not all jackets & coats from Mountain Hardwear,
they appear to have no neck sizes anywhere; so how do I know what to
order when they do not show these sizes?
I've already bought a replacement jacket, tried it on once, kept it awhile
trying to get information on neck sizes (the jacket I was sent had medium
or small neck, jacket was marked Large - Mens; rest of jacket seemed L.)
So since I hadn't heard back other times when I asked STPost about the
size issue, and Mountain Hardwear didn't either, I gave away the jacket.
It was essentially new; I was unable to zip the neck all the way up for use
in winter, and usually (with older MT Hardwear jacket of this design) I had
been able to not only layer it, but zip all of the layers underneath, up full.
So this is an essential issue, for a product that has the name Mountain
in it, and proposes to do what their older version did. I am 6ft 1" &
up to 200 lbs; not a muscle neck or flabby. I like my old great condition
Mt Hardware original jacket; made in the USA with Gore windstopper.
How about it? Any reply to this? I've been giving away all these items
since STPost no longer honors the guaranty they were sold under, btw.
I have boots, only tried on; not broken in, also. They are like fruit now,
expired before a chance to see if the soles come off after 45 miles.
Spares about in advance, totally useless. Is this the new STPost?”
The MH originals were 'true to size' w/ reasonable neck openings. Forget about the new MH II styles as they are substandard in many ways. Blowsy in the torso and narrow at the neck plus the shoulders are cut shallow w/ sleeves that would fit an orangutan. No pit zips and the build quality is just no longer there. I sent mine back as soon as it arrived and was tried on. Couldn't believe the MH II was the 'upgrade' version of the original... There are other excellent quality jackets out in the market-place, but you need to try them on as each fits a different body-type. I'ld gladly have paid more for the original MH jacket than what was paid for the MH II.
As far as the STP warranty process, I've never had a bad experience. Been a customer since the late 80's. Not as good value-wise as they were before being taken over by TJ Max. 'Big box-store' driven means that some of the old personal touch of their first 30 years got tossed into the dustbin
