Verified Buyer Reviewed by xuewei Zhang from Shanghai on Thursday, April 6, 2017McKinley Pahoa Hooded UX Soft Shell Jacket is well made. the material is soft and warm, and it does block wind and rain. according to the other review, the sleeves are overly long, so l order one size down, and it fits me perfect over a baselayer. I wear it for running in cold winter days, and the color is very bright so it has very good visuality in dark.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Nick from CA on Tuesday, January 24, 2017Ordered the McKinley Pahoa soft shell jacket for warm day skiing. The jacket arrived and I was surprised...good quality throughout, seams, zips etc. all exhibit good workmanship. But like other reviewers, the arms are somwhat long, not a deal-killer though...
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Cheng Her from Colorado on Monday, January 2, 2017It's a pretty good jacket that does well to block the wind and rain. The material is also pretty comfortable and soft, although I am unsure of how it can hold up over time (just my speculation, not based off experience because the jacket is still holding up well). It's also pretty warm as I've worn it through the winter here in Colorado. The only slight complaint I will have is similar to the other review, the sleeves are overly long, even if you use the sleeve hole. But that doesn't warrant not buying it. Even at $29.99, it's a good deal. If you can get it for 25% off, it's a no-brainer. It's actually equal or only marginally worse in quality in my opinion to the more expensive North Face, Columbia, Marmot hooded jackets.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Car Less Ohio from Akron, Ohio on Friday, December 30, 2016I was looking for a lighter weight softshell jacket for winter bicycling. I already had a cycling-specific softshell jacket that worked pretty well, but it was somewhat heavier, and ironically, was a little too warm for some conditions. It wasn't clear from the description of this jacket if it was heavyweight or lightweight, and I had never heard of the McKinley brand before. But, for the price, I figured it was worth a try, and I was not disappointed. We got our second major snowfall of the season here last night, so this morning, I thought I'd hit my local trails to try out the jacket. I wore a long-sleeve wool baselayer, then a long-sleeve mid-weight wool cycling jersey, then this jacket on top. I also wore a lightweight SmartWool beanie on my head, then pulled the hood of this jacket over that, and my helmet still fit fine on top. The temperatures were in the mid to high 20s (F), with a little bit of wind. The Pahoa jacket ended up being perfect for the day; it kept me warm, without over-heating once I got moving to generate body heat. The fit is spot-on; I'm 5-feet 11-inches and about 185 pounds, and the Large works perfectly. The thumb holes on the sleeves are handy; even if you don't use the holes, the extra sleeve length they provide gives me good coverage when in the cycling position. The tail is not as long as you'd find on a cycling-specific jacket, but that didn't cause me any issues; it still gave me good crack coverage. The only thing that could make this jacket better would be armpit zips for ventilation, but again, at the price, this jacket can't be beat.
Reviewed by streetracer101 from CT on Saturday, December 10, 2016I bought this on a whim because I wanted a softshell jacket to round out my winter collection, but I didn't want to spend a fortune. After a bit of research, I found out this is a European company with mid tier pricing.
For the price, this is an excellent jacket. I paid about $22 for it...less then a garbage jacket from Old Navy or Walmart costs. It features a proprietary Dry Climate wind resistant fabric that works surprisingly well. In 35 degree weather I was still fairly comfortable with a light long sleeve t and this jacket. There are elastic pulls to cinch the bottom of the jacket snug. The only issue preventing me from giving this 5 stars is the sleeves are overly long. Even with use of the thumb holes, the sleeves have a fair bit of extra fabric and bunch up some. For reference, I am 5'10", average 175 lb build, and I've never had this issue with other big name companies. Despite this, I'd buy again. It's a fantastic value at the current price. I hope STP adds some additional products from this company.
