MH Ratio jacket

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Darren from Central NY on Tuesday, February 3, 2015
I ordered this jacket and the Marmot Caldera jacket at the same time because I couldn't decide which one I'd like. I'm keeping the Ratio... The jacket is not too bulky but incredibly warm. Wore it skiing a few days ago with a thermal shirt and a 1/4 zip fleece underneath and was perfectly comfortable. I was skiing with my 5 and 7 year old kids so my own body heat wasn't much of a factor in my warmth in this jacket. I tried to also fit a fleece vest under it, but that proved to be too bulky to be comfortable. Perhaps if i had ordered the XL instead of the L. For everyday wear the L fits me perfectly. Im 6'3", 210 lbs., with a modest althletic build. The sleeve length is adequate and the jacket rests at least a couple inches below my waist which I think is perfect. The exterior fabric appears to be pretty durable, but I would be hesitant to wear this hiking without a more durable shell over it. My only complaints are the pockets and zippers. I would love this jacket even more if it had at least one interior pocket or an external chest pocket. And for the cost of this jacket, the zippers seem a little weak. We'll have to see how they hold up over time and use.
All in all, I would recommend this jacket.
