If you're searching of an alpine shell, look no further than the Women's Mountain Hardwear Drystein Jacket. This versatile, smooth fitting jacket is designed for the high alpine environment, but would be perfectly at home on the ski hill, or knocking a puck around the pond. A fixed helmet compatible hood features a single-pull adjustment, extra beefy brim, and a Micro-Chamois™ lined chin guard. Down on the body, three layer Dry.Q™ Elite 40D waterproof breathable fabric moves heat and body vapor before sweat begins to build up on the inside. Highly breathable side stretch panels have done away with pit zips, reducing weight and increasing maneuverability. Chest high pockets allow access even when wearing a harness and pack, and the welded pockets and zips are watertight. Experience the next level of fit and performance in the Drystein Jacket for women from Mountain Hardwear.

Amazing Jacket
April 04, 2012

I bought this jacket for my GF after having one myself. The new DryQElite is amazing- It breathes better than any jacket I own. Since having this jacket I have not had to use any other jacket for rain or snow or anything in between. Its just that good. We are in Colorado so its been used so far in the mountains in snow, and rain. And around town on our bikes at the airport etc. its awesome. Order a size up- she is 5'7, 115 lbs , athletic -and the small is just too tight in the shoulders- it looks amazing but the medium fits better and allows her to layer with it. Still a very flattering / fitted jacket too.

Be careful about fit
April 26, 2012

First, let me say that this is a beautifully made jacket and very flattering. However, it's constructed to fit a very specific body type - women with narrow shoulders and quite long, slender arms. If your shoulders are average or larger, or if you have something more going on than spaghetti arms, this jacket won't fit you. I ordered a size large based on similar comments from previous reviewers, thinking that might give me enough shoulder room. Nope. There was ample room in the hips and waist, but the shoulders and upper arms were tight enough that I'd never get another layer under there and would risk the integrity of the seams every time I moved. And the sleeves were very, very long. I'm going to be sending it back, and it's a bummer because it truly is a lovely jacket. It'd be nice to have one that actually lets me look like a woman rather than a box. I'm sure there's one out there, but for me it won't be this one.

Pros: nice features, very flattering, Cons: very specific fit

Women's Drystein Jacket
March 30, 2012

I absolutely love the Dry. Q fabric. It is incredibly breathable and lightweight. This particular jacket has nice stretchy panels under the arms. The fit is a little bit tricky though. The body is nice and flattering, well fitting. The sleeves are long, but the fit in the arm pits is tight. I am 5"4" 110 and I can fit a thin base layer under the jacket and that is it. If I sized up to a medium to get more room in the armpits, the jacket become WAY to big. The hood is nice and large. I wear this jacket ice climbing, so the long sleeves and stretchy side panels are perfect!

Pros: lightweight, breathable, flattering fit, long sleeves, Cons: tight arm pits

This investment was definitely worth it. So far have mostly been wearing it in 40 degree weather over a thin baselayer. My baselayer is still wet after a good workout, but nowhere near what it would be with my old rainjacket (not an elite fabric). I appreciate the large hood and the useful pockets. Overall, love it and am looking forward to more use in the mountains. Sizing: I am 5'4", 115 lbs. Small fits great, I tried a medium and it was way too big. The cut is very flattering as well.
