Some good things some bad
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: xl
I live where in February it can easily get to -35 C at night before windchill. Unfortunately, I'm a good judge of cold and how to be outside in it.
My second Mountain Hardware (MH) Jacket, first was a Nielist I believe and it lasted over 10 years, a great jacket.
It's warm I'm fine at -35 C
Light, amazing such a big jacket is so light
Thumbholes in the wrist cuff if you want to use them or not, nice touch
I'm not sure why Mountain Hardware can't insulate the arms of their jackets properly? As soon as I'm outside I can feel the cold biting into the crook of my arm at the elbow. It's a new jacket and it's already screwed up with the insulation. Last MH jacket was bad in the arms too.
I wouldn't have bought if I'd know I'd be a billboard for MH.....A big logo on left front chest, left arm, and to finalize the giant branding buffet a big on the centre of the back. Some people appreciate a tasteful jacket that isn't branded like a 16-year-old girls Canada Goose jacket. I really wish they hadn't made me a billboard, I know they don't pay me to be a walking billboard. Heads up MH, tasteful quality stuff isn't branded like that.......bugs me a lot.
