Not a good jacket
Review by: dwise, 2008-11-16
This jacket looks nice, but is not tremendously functional. It has no insulation, so it does not keep me warm at all. It only works well if you're active (skiing, biking, running). It's too athletically cut to layer underneath. I'm 6', 180lbs and have a size L. Sleeves are too long on the XL. It's a bit stiff for climbing--I find myself defaulting to climb in a thin fleece instead if it's cool out. It's not amazingly windproof and only somewhat water resistant. Besides, as I'm learning, there's no point in having a soft shell w/o a hood. In rain, the water drips down your neck anyway. I want to like this jacket. I have a lot of Mtn Hardwear gear and like it all--this jacket is the one exception.
