so far so good!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

My lady needed a light jacket, primarily for hiking. It had to be relatively packable, breathable, good fit over just a single layer and capable of taking some abuse. We landed on this one and so far she's hyped! It's even casual enough to wear around town without looking too tech.

Fit

    Fit's great

    Great for spring/fall

    I wore this jacket on an evening run in Salt Lake City, and it was great! As a light softshell, it is breathable and protects from wind. When I got too warm, I took it off but was happy to have it again at the top! In the photo below, I am wearing a medium but a small would be the correct fit for me. The sleeves were a great length, the zippered pockets were nice, and overall I like the feel of the face fabric! This would be great for any spring and fall climbing, hiking, running, or other activities.

    My initial impression was how comfortable and soft the fabric was on this jacket. It's really thin and doesn't seem like it would hold up to any weather at all and while I haven't put it through any rain, it kept me warm in pretty windy conditions up in the mountains around Salt Lake while climbing and I didn't get too hot wearing it either. I'm excited to use it this coming fall in some more severe weather, but I'm sure it'll pass the test! Another awesome jacket by Mountain Hardwear.

    Very comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: medium

    This jacket is perfect for cool weather! Love the color--not too bright but just enough pop! The material is stretchy so you don't feel confined. Most comfortable jacket I have purchased! Also slipped and fell on the beach Greenland Sea while wearing this with no tears and the dirt washed right out!

    Great jacket

    This jacket is perfect for spring activities. I've used it multiple times while hiking and even when for fly fishing. Its the perfect light weight layer and the stretch fabric is amazing!

    Functional Light Jacket

      I just got this jacket for the weather getting warmer. This is perfect for being able to go out in variable weather (wind, drizzle, slight cold) without overheating like with a fleece or something heavier. It moves with you so easily that makes it perfect for spring/ summer/ fall activities. I love my new go to jacket!
