    Mountain Hardwear Mountain Tech Jacket - Men's is rated 4.5714 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light, comfortable, simple. I went to climb Mount Fuji a few weeks ago. Before the trip I was told to pack very light as the hike is lengthy for one day (about 9 hours). The plan was to hike overnight to get to the summit just in time for the sunrise, so temperatures were in the low 30's at night. But, it was quite warm during the day - in the 80's. This jacket did it all. It is very breathable when it's warm, and it 100% blocks wind and mild rain. And it fits perfectly. I could not be happier. Only reason I docked it one star is because for a few more bucks you can get a better looking one from the competing brands. But they don't fit as well. At first, I disliked the slanted pockets, but they actually turn out to be very convenient. They will keep things from falling out no matter whether or not you've zipped them up or not. And access is actually easier than traditional side-facing pockets.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from takes abuse. not very breathable. OK. I wore this for nearly 4 years, until one of the pit zips broke. That p*ssed me off, so I upgraded to the Arc'Teryx Gamma MX. So now I'm in a position of experience to tell you that, for 1/2 the Arc'Teryx cost, with this jacket you get 2/3 of the Arc'Teryx value. This thing took a lot of abuse, including machine wash (warm) + dry (hottest possible). Rolls up as a serviceable pillow. It's on the short side, which I guess is good when you want to adjust your belt or grab your wallet & don't have to hitch up the jacket. But, unlike a good buddy, it won't cover your [apparently offensive 3-letter word]. The windproof-ness didn't impress me. There's nothing behind the zippers, so that lets the wind in. You'll be OK if you wear something underneath. Breathability is average; the super-long put zips help but not all that much. If you sweat a lot, may as well spring for the Arc'Teryx. Sorry dude. Don't know about style, but while use & abuse didn't affect the jacket's structural integrity, it did kinda wilt the collar. Overall: worth the money, esp. if on sale. My comments refer to the 2008 model, so some of the issues may have been addressed.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great potential, weird fit. See pros and cons above. I find this jacket has a questionable fit. I'm 6'2", 160lbs, and bought the medium. I came to find the sleeves are about 1.5 inches too short and the chest is somewhat tight, but the mid section is way to big. I don't really think of this fit as athletic, which is disappointing considering this jackets potential. Unless they were the correct proportions, I would not recommend this to a friend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome jacket! Mostly I wear this jacket for extended dog walks (2 - 4 hours) It's the warmest (light weight) jacket I've ever worn. It is truly windproof and keeps me warmer than I would expect for it's weight and material. I don't over heat in it like some of my warmer weather gear. The only thing I might ask to change is the pockets. They are a little inconvenient to get things in and out of and could be a little larger. But I also think that's part of the reason it keeps me warm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This jacket is great! I wear this jacket when the temperature is between 50 and 20F. As advertised, it is windproof. We've had some very windy days this winter and I've taken some hikes of several miles with the temp down around 20 and 20-30mph winds and felt comfortable. The jacket has vents under the arm that I haven't used yet but spring is around the corner and I'm sure I will need them. It's a great jacket and I recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Winter Jacket I got this jacket 2 years ago for Christmas. It was one of the coldest winters in GA history, & this jacket was what got me through it. It's relatively wind resistant for fleece, incredibly warm, & still somehow the lightest jacket I own, in weight & in feel. I used this underneath a textile motorcycle jacket as my only way of keeping my arms & torso warm on highway speed motorcycle rides as low as 13 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, the next spring, I made the mistake of letting a friend borrow it. Long story short, I just got it back today & I'm ecstatic. He admitted to me that he had been wearing the jacket regularly the past year & a half not remembering where he had gotten it, & the thing still looks new! That should speak for the durability. As far as features, the mid-level hand pockets serve as a comfortable way to warm your hands (zippers zip upward so no cold metal rubbing against your wrists) & a sort of mobile arm rest (because they sit up so high). Everything zips & fastens as it should & doesn't feel cheap, & the armpit vents are a GREAT way to reduce sweating on cold hikes. The fit was perfect (I'm 5'10, 145lb & medium fit great). I'd buy this jacket 100 times over if they don't change anything about it & would recommend it to anyone but my worst enemy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again. Nice quality jacket. I haven't worn it much yet but thinking it won't be great in real cold weather. I normally take a large tall but Mountain Hardware gives you amble sleeve length which I like. A large regular fits nicely. This is my second Mountain Hardware jacket I purchased this year because of that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I have a number of outdoor jackets and this is probably my favorite. It is extremely well designed and has lots of features. It is great for any outdoor activity either alone or in layers. The fact that it is truely windproof allows me to wear it as a shell in most circumstances except a heavy rain without raingear. Vents great even in heavy exercise. Dries fast. I've used it camping, winter camping, skiing and just hanging out. Perfect for every occasion.
