The happy medium.
Wear a jacket too heavily insulated and you're going to overheat once you start to move, but wear a jacket too light and you're going to freeze your nips off as soon as you stop to take a break. The Mountain Hardwear Men's Superconductor Insulated Jacket sits somewhere between a heavy insulator and light windbreaker with a mid-weight double weave fabric that blocks wind and light synthetic insulation that offers breathable warmth whether you're moving at a quick clip on the trail or taking a break to enjoy the views and fall foliage.
- A midweight jacket for cool-weather hikes and active pursuits
- Water-resistant synthetic insulation offers lightweight warmth
- Full-zip front can be opened up for ventilation
- Stretch-woven face fabric resists wind and foul weather
- Q & A
Warm Jacket Less Bulk
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Medium
I purchased this jacket in the Forest Green and it looks great. I've worn the jacket in windy, cold temperatures that have been in the single digits, and have remained warm without any chills. The jacket is very lightweight and not bulky at all. I'm about 5'10", 180 lbs. and the size Medium fits me great, with room to wear some layers underneath. The outside material does not feel very heavy like other brand softshell jackets that are fleece-lined, but it does a great job of resisting the wind and precipitation. Again, not bulky at all, but does a great job of keeping in the warmth!
