Designed with classic mountaineering performance, the Mountain Hardwear Women's Nazca Jacket is a waterproof breathable shell that uses Dry.Q™ Elite technology to keep you dry and comfy during athletic pursuits in cold high elevation conditions. Dry.Q™ Elite is the first waterproof fabric that does not require humidity to trigger breathability so it starts working to regulate interior moisture as soon as you put it on. Inside this winter mountaineering jacket is a brushed tricot lining to enhance its warmth just a little and keep the cold clammies down. Simple and streamlined, its features include a Micro-Chamois™-lined chin guard, pit zips, adjustable cuffs, a drawcord at the hem and zippered hand pockets – the necessities without too much fluff. Ready for a backcountry ski tour, a hike in a 32-degree rainstorm, setting a boot pack in a sideways-blowing blizzard or a climb up Mt Adams (which could include all of these activities), the Nazca Jacket for women has a soft, smooth, supple feel that will keep you moving in comfort going uphill or down.

Not built for women with curves
June 19, 2013

I have a handful of Mountain Hardware jackets and lots of their hiking clothes and was very disappointed at the fit of this jacket. I typically wear a L and the L was very tight in the hips and chest, but fit ok everywhere else. I exchanged for the XL, which I knew was risky but really liked the jacket look and features and the XL fit the same except way big everywhere else, but surprisingly still snug in the hips and chest areas. So, if you are a curvy woman, do not even sad and disappointed as I've been looking for the perfect new winter sport (ski, snowshoe, etc) jacket. It looks like it would fit the bill perfectly if only it had a better fit!

Pros: Build quality, Performance, Great value, Cons: poor sizing

The material is waterproof, soft AND breathable! Great for layering. I got this for my wife for backpacking and it will be the perfect insurance for wet and windy weather.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
