Highest Caliber shell
March 03, 2012

One of the best shells I've ever owned. I've been a mountain hardwear fan for years and have bought about 10 pieces from and this is one of the best!! Athletic fit with room to add a mid layer fleece for extra warmth. Im a city slicker and this shell is my go to on those windy, rainy, freezing days.

THE Jacket, but it run a bit small
February 23, 2012

The jacket is excellent, everything that we expected regarding materials and construction, excellent zippers, and convenience details for skiing/mountaneering, but it ran a little bit small in comparison to other Mountain Hardwear jackets my son already uses. The armpits and arms are rather narrow. He's 5' 9", weighs 165 lb, and this model in M would have been too tight over a medium layer. In the right size, it is definetely a keeper!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: runs a bit small

Used this jacket for 14 days of snow boarding this past season. Bottom Line, I love it. Mountain Hardware hit a home run with the Dry Q Elite fabric...evolutions better in breathability than ANY type of Gore-Tex I've used (haven't tried ores "active fabric" yet...). This jacket does wear slightly cooler than my previous gore tex pro jacket. Fit wise, I'm a tough sell. I'm 5-10, 180lbs, but have broad shoulders, chest and back with a 32 waist...carryover from my body-building days. The medium fit perfect on arms and waist, but was just a tiny bit tight in the chest. there was only room for a thin base layer. I opted for the Large and although a little baggy in the midsection, it fit great through my upper portions and I am able to layer with a base, a mid (R2 or OR Transcendent) and still have plenty of room. This jacket also doubles as my alpine mountaineering jacket and I can fit a Large MH Chillwave over the top no problem. I'm unintentionally a MH model when I'm at play in the mountains...oh well...they make good stuff! The jacket is durable. I've brushed and scraped several trees/bushes etc with no ill effects and certainly no holes. No problems either with the alpine climbing against rocks. Seems to be holding up with no problem. Only con is cost. but you can find these jackets on sale everywhere for half off. it's a bargain at that price.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Cons: Cost
