Verified Buyer Reviewed by Rick from Troy, Michigan on Saturday, November 11, 2017I really like this jacket. It's light but warm. The only reason I didn't rate it a 5 star is because the inside pocket is too deep. It goes down to the bottom of the jacket. Kind of hard to reach anything in it.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by ASM Otto from Earth on Friday, March 10, 2017650 fill down jacket at this price is a steal. Who caes what color your jacket is when you are cold, but I happen to like the orange. This jacket will keep you warm and toasty. Not to mention it can double as a pillow (when stuffed into it's own pocket)!!!
Fit is correct, as I wear a XXL, and at 6'4" the sleeves are good and long.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by MTN lover from New York on Tuesday, January 3, 2017Nice Jacket , Good around town . Down shows up more than I would like . Needs inside pocket.
Reviewed by Bullers from Canada on Sunday, December 18, 2016I've plenty of tech insulated jackets for active use - needed a puffy for at rest situations at camp when I'm not generating any body heat and temps are dipping to freezing + wind. So far really pleased with this jacket - compresses into pack easily and lofts back up with a quick shake. Deep pockets. Good wind resistance. Large fits nicely under OR Foray (XL) shell if you're looking for combo ideas.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Cory from Mississippi on Tuesday, December 13, 2016Absolutely love this coat. Good water resistance and very warm.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Climber Cory from Ohio on Sunday, December 4, 2016This jacket is amazing for the price. I have always bought Mountain Hardwear for the quality and longevity of their products. My last jacket lasted five years and after getting this one I think I'm going to have this jacket for a while. The jacket is incredibly warm and fits great. I'm a 6 foot slender male and a medium is absolutely perfect. I haven't had the chance to take it rock climbing yet but if it's like my other jacket nothing will hurt this great product.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Eastmaple from Massachusetts on Thursday, November 10, 2016This jacket in size large fits me great. I'm 6'-5" 200#. I usually need to buy a tall size to get the sleeve length and torso but this jacket is fine. Build quiality is great. A couple outings in the low 20's it was quite warm with no cold spots. For the $$ spent a great value.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Captain Iguana from Alaska on Monday, November 7, 2016This is a quality coat. I own several down coats, each for a different purpose and occasion. This Mt. Hardwear Ratio with Q Shield is a 1st class unit. A couple of days ago it was 15F and snowing hard here in Fairbanks. I grabbed this coat for the conditions. I stayed completely toasty and the snow that accumulated on the coat did not affect the down in the least. It looks good too. You cannot go wrong with this coat in temps above 0F and moist conditions. The price was right from Sierra TP too. I actually got this in a greenish color so it wouldn't stand out too much in summer in our coolish and often wet nights here in Alaska.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jim-Outdoors from Idaho on Wednesday, April 13, 2016This jacket is perfect for layering and for multiple seasons in Idaho and looks great. It's lightweight and has a great design. The size fits well as I'm 6'2" and have longer sleeves. The large was a good choice for a athlete fit. You may want to go one size larger if you'll have several layers underneath.
Reviewed by Big Al from Colorado on Friday, December 25, 2015Shamefully; I bought this as a (greatly) oversized XXL jacket just to harvest the down from the excess I knew the sleeves would have. Worked out really well; used the bottom two baffles from each arm to add to some baffles on a down bag that needed a little extra.
Aside from my butchery of this otherwise fine garment; I'm still impressed a month later. Good ripstop - I had the first person experience of working with the "30 denier" ripstop; much tougher than seems to be by feel or visual inspection.
The down just keeps on expanding and puffing up the baffles. Bear in mind; this is a jacket that has never been stuff sacked or compressed. If it arrives and seems a bit thin on the fill; give it a shake or two; wear it around a bit; do it a good proper end of day trail shake or so. Nothing except positives for the quality and amount of fill.
Kudos for the zipper and surrounding baffling on both sides. Only the zipper pull side is visible on the pic; but the other side is baffled also, and both sides have a nylon rip stop / no snag stripe of nylon. More good stuff beyond the price point.
Of price points, yep. No pit-zips, no interior pockets, no chest pocket, and the sleeves aren't the spiffy adjustable velcro either. Add all that stuff in and ok; then this would be a $200 puffy instead of a $120 puffy. The handwarmer pockets *are* huge, and go to the bottom of the hem; and are behind the down fill. Two solid pockets are way better than a dozen tiny ones.
Gotta love the old school MH branding. Embroidered on teh left sleeve, left chest, and middle of the shoulders on back. Class.
If I was in the market for a mid-weight layering jacket; this would be an excellent. Being a cold climate resident; it is going into the vehicles winter kit. Close would be that at the price point; the Ratio way overperforms. Closing thought would be it has to do as well or better under a proper winter shell. +++
