From back country to day trips, the Mountain Hardwear Ampato men's jacket offers durable, waterproof, highly breathable protection. New Dry.Q Elite fabric works immediately to keep you cool and dry.

  • Dry.Q Elite fabric's air-permeable membrane allows air—not just moisture—to pass outward through the fabric, so you stay dry on the inside as well as the outside
  • The always-on air flow doesn't wait for you to heat up before beginning to breathe; breathability and comfort start the minute you put on the jacket
  • Dry.Q fabric prevents clamminess and helps keep you cool and dry
  • 2-layer design features a hanging mesh lining that adds wicking comfort
  • Fully adjustable, attached hood; micro-chamois-lined collar guard prevents zipper chafe
  • Pit zippers let you quickly and easily control core temperature, expelling excess body heat as needed during high output activity
  • Adjustable cuffs and hem
  • Mountain Hardwear Ampato jacket features zippered pack-friendly hand pockets, a chest pocket and an interior zip security pocket
  • The fit allows you to layer comfortably

Mountain Hardwear Ampato Rain Jacket - Men'sis rated4.7143out of5by7.
Rated5out of5byfromCool jacket for a hot guyThis jacket is the best! I work in Boone, NC and we've been hammered with severe winter weather and below zero temps. I'm very hot natured and it doesn't take much for me to heat up quick. I've tried Gore and I overheat in it quickly and in warmer weather I'm as wet with sweat as I would be if I went without it. I needed a waterproof shell that is also windproof and breaths well. This jacket does all that. I can actually stay warm and comfortable outside with howling wind and close to zero temps then go into a store, keep the jacket zipped up and not broil! I'm looking forward to trying it out in warmer weather to see if I can actually stay dry during rainy weather.

Rated4out of5byfromGood JacketGood waterproof jacket. Light enough for warm weather. Fits right but has room to put on some layers underneath for when it's cold.

Rated5out of5byfromAn excellent way to stay dryThis hooded jacket is perfect for Winter rains. Simply put, it does a great job of keeping the rain out. With the full lining, it is usually warm enough without layering. The 3 zippered pockets are secure and the internal pocket is good for keeping a cell phone dry. The draw strings are efficient in adjusting the fit. This jacket does not have a downside.
