Super lightweight & warm but too THIN
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I love the jacket for its warmth & light weight. After a few months of normal wearing to work and occasional cold weather bike ride, it started to tear.
I was not hiking thru brambles. It was too late to return to Backcountry so I sent it to Mountain Hardwear for warranty service. They offer a lifetime warranty and since the jacket was just a few months old and had a half dozen tears, I thought they would repair or replace it. NOPE - instead they sent it back in the same condition with a sheet of stickers saying the rips and tears were normal wear.
So I still wear it but its shabby with matt stickers all over the shiny fabric.
Also the zipper is micro small so not easily operated while wearing gloves or even with bare hands. I would not purchase again and I'm no longer a fan of Mountain Hardwear because their LIFETIME Warranty is a SHAM.
