Great top of the line hard shell jacket.
DryQ technology similar to Goretex so ths is waterproof and very breathable
The fit is roomier than the drystein jacket so great for layering underneath.
It's not going to keep you warm since there's no insulation but it's about 1lb so it's light weight and... Read More

    This is a good quality and well designed jacket like all other MH stuff I've ever owned. The cut is athletic so if you're used to baggy jackets this may not be it for you. I'm 6' tall and size M is good for me - the sleeves come down to the first knuckles. The jacket is wide enough to allow wearing a down jacket underneath for cold days.

    I have always been pleased with the quality products Mountain Hardware has to offer! When I saw this jacket on closeout, in a nice color, I bought it on the spot. It is light in weight, and has a well designed hood that offers great protection from the elements. It was a confident purchase! Exactly what I wanted, at a great price!

    Seems like a great light weight jacket w/ strong construction. Zipper caught at first. Maybe it's the water resistent design. It seems to be working ok now.

    Stiff constructions is probably very water shedding, but scratchy at the chin and neck

    Overall I like this jacket. It replaces a well worn EMS jacket that has seen better days. This jacket is lightweight, durable and well made for the most part. The blue color is also very nice. The jacket will be fine for most cold weather excursions in the north. I have worn it hiking, snowshoeing and around town. It might be too much jacket for summer use in most areas of the country except at higher elevations.

    There are two major faults I found with this jacket. First the jacket seems too small in the chest area. I can have no more than two thick layers underneath before it becomes difficult to zip up. Which limits it usability in deep winter excursions. Another issue is the zippers are terrible. I believe they will last but they are too small and narrow which makes it difficult to zip up pockets or main zipper with gloves. They also tend to stick at times when ice builds up on the jacket. I have never had this problem with the EMS jacket which had heavy duty YKK zippers. Granted this jacket is designed to be lightweight rather than heavy duty like my old jacket. Another issue is the jacket does not breath at all, compared to Gore-tex, without opening the underarm and pocket vents. While it might be wind and waterproof, condensation builds up inside the jacket which makes me sweat more. It Doesn't take much effort to start to sweat in this jacket. Like I stated before opening the vents will remedy the problem but with a downside of allow cold air inside the jacket. I would recommend this jacket to someone as long as they know about the issues with it.

    • This item is non-insulated shell, so you would probably want to layer if you are using it in winter.

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.
