Type 2 Fun 3/4-Zip Hooded Jacket

The Mountain Hardwear Type 2 Fun 3/4-Zip Hooded Jacket is n essential layering piece for any activity you can throw it against, from skinning up to your favorite backcountry powder line to throwing your harness on and crushing a new climb.

The low-profile fixed hood works seamlessly under a helmet when cold winds are howling through the canyon.

  • Micro-grid fleece fabric breathes to regulate body temperature
  • 3/4 zip pullover design fits comfortably under a harness
  • Fixed hood fits under a climbing or skiing helmet
  • Regular fit provides extra freedom of movement

A great fall fleece

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

The Type 2 is one of the more comfortable fleeces I ever worn. It's extremely soft and seems slightly warmer the Patagonia R1. Also the the thumb holes are extremely comfortable and well placed. I normally wear a large but I like these type of fleece shirts to fit tight so I sized down.

Zipper Failed After a Couple Uses

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

I really liked this hoody! It is perfect for alpine climbing. Similar warmth as the R1, but slightly cheaper. Fabric seems a bit more stretchy. My big complaint is the front pocket. It is glued in place and the glue failed on me after using about 3 times. I went to unzip the pocket and the zipper came right out. Also the pocket doesnt quite fit my phone. MH should sew this piece in and make it slightly bigger.

Close to perfect

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: L

I really enjoyed trying this on. The build quality was phenomenal, and I could tell this is built to last. Sadly, this hoody feels a bit too tight. I should have realized from the images here, this really hugs the person wearing it.
I do enjoy form fitting, but could not do this hoodie personally.
If there was a bit more room, would be almost perfect. I loved the thumb loops and the material.

Good overall, with room for improvement

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

TL;DR: Almost perfect: fix the loose wrist cuffs and make the chest pocket larger, and this would be a PERFECT 5/5, and a serious contender to competitor pieces like the “Patagucci” R1!


FULL REVIEW: A pretty good hoody overall, but requires some improvement to make it a perfect 5/5. It’s not as thick as other hoodies, but I like this for layering purposes. The poly/pro waffle grid fleece is decently warm, definitely cozy, and breathes well too. I like this for a layering piece on cold days or standalone on warmer days. I am 6'3" tall and 180 LBS, so tall and thin, and size Medium fits me great. It’s long enough for taller people, and I love that about this hoody. The fit is athletic with just enough room underneath for a T shirt or your favorite long sleeve base layer (I prefer merino wool base layers), and yet still fits snug enough to throw on top a shell, puffy, or insulated outer jacket if it gets really cold. It looks sharp too, so whether hiking, fishing, rowing, or heading to the local brewery, you’ll look good no matter what the activity. The thumbhole loops are hidden so when not in use, they cannot be seen at all, which is pretty cool, but they’re also not the greatest thumbhole loop design either because of this. It’s a trade off and I’m totally fine with it, as I’d rather have thumbhole loops than no thumbhole loops at all. People love thumbhole loops! And if you're the rare person who doesn't , they can't be seen when not used, so hooray for that.


Where this hoody needs improvement: the wrist cuffs are far too large and depending on the size you buy or how thick or thin your wrists are, it will be loose and will slide down over your hand as other reviewers have mentioned. The Medium is okay for me, but if I was a bit heavier and needed to size up to a Large, I would’ve been returning it: when I tried on the Large, the wrist cuffs were way too wide and baggy. I can see a lot of people returning this hoody because the wrist cuffs are too loose (unless you like the look of when your girlfriend wears your clothes and the wrist cuffs extend over her small, cute hands). I’ve also noticed this problem on a lot of other MH pieces such as the Keele lineup. Such a shame, stop making the wrist cuffs so loose MH! A solution here would be to make tighter fitting wrist cuffs with elastic to make it stretchy. I’d rather have a tighter fitting wrist cuff that can stretch over time, than one that is too loose from the start. Lastly, why is the chest pocket so small? It will just fit my iPhone 6S and leave room for one or two other very tiny items, but why not make the chest pocket extend all the way across the chest to give it that much more room? If you look at the images, you can see they designed the chest pocket with this weird angled shape, making the pocket smaller and not a straight rectangle design that extends fully across the chest. This seems silly to me because all it’s doing is making the chest pocket smaller than it could be. Devil’s advocate says what the heck are you storing in your chest pocket that it needs to be so big for? It’s a chest pocket. But still, why make it smaller than it needs to be?


I’d recommend buying 2 sizes like I did (M and L. I kept the M), but then you are having to eat the return shipping label cost. So might be better off to try on in store first.
