Mountain Hardwear Firefall 2 Jacket- Menâs
Disclaimer: I haven’t used it on the mountain yet, nor have I been able to test the waterproofing capabilities.
However, this jacket feels, looks, and seems incredibly well made. Iâm pretty picky with my outdoor gear and clothing, and wanted a lasting jacket that felt and looked great, along with performing up to standard, and I think this jacket will be just that. I ordered a The North Face Repko ski jacket at first, but returned it because it was much too long and didnât feel right. Then I found this on sale, and Iâm very happy I did. It is the perfect length, not too long and not too short. It looks awesome in my opinion- the thumb loops, neck protection, and colors are great. It fits really great too, not too loose or anything, and is very comfortable. it has enough room to layer underneath it, which is why I ordered the non-insulated version (to be able to choose how many under-layers I want). Iâve been wearing it a few days in the upper 30s (Fahrenheit) and itâs plenty warm with just a cotton hoodie underneath.
Itâs got every feature I would want in a ski jacket: thump loops, a powder skirt which can button into the jacket and keep out of the way if you donât want to use it, tough Waterproof nylon, plenty of pockets in the right places including a small zip pocket on the left arm, an inner pocket for a phone or iPod which has a small hole for headphones, a helmet compatible and detachable hood, warm and waterproof, looks great, underarm vents, and many adjustable areas including the waist and hood.
Iâm going to the mountains soon, and will try to remember to update the review.
can you update your review yet? this thing is on a great sale
