by fromSolid Jacket Reall, really nice jacket. Definitely not meant to be worn alone in winter're gonna need a sweater or something under it. luckily it's pretty roomy, and the insulation is just enough to make it perfect with that extra layer.

by fromBest Mountain Hardware Jacket to date My Mountain Hardware go to jacket gave up the ghost recently, after 10+ years of hiking and camping use. I even tried retreating to extend its life but during a recent hike in Cameroon Africa was caught in a torrential downpour and came away sopping wet so knew it was to look for a new jacket. After reading too many reviews of various jackets, I decided on Mountain Hardware's Kryos. The Kryos came from REI and I can't believe the thought that went into this jacket. As other reviewers commented, it is big (I am 5-1, 185 lbs and ordered a large which fits like an x-large) but that is a plus in my mind as it makes for a more comfortable fit and leaves room for layering when the weather gets cold. It does not seem that this jacket would be effective in extreme cold but I have not tested it in weather below 30 (nor do I intend to) so this too is a positive. The extreme functionality and obvious craftmanship is perhaps the best part of this jacket. Every pocket serves a function and I especially love the thumb holes in the sleeve cuffs that keep the sleeves down. Perhaps the only thing I would change is the main zipper seems to get stuck but I attribute that to the fact this is a fairly new zipper and expect this issue to go away with time. With such a well designed, great fitting and bullet-proof jacket, why did Mountain Hardware discontinue it? I am tempted to purchase a second and store it for future use! Highly recommend the Mountain Hardware Kryos.

by fromExcellent jacket! I bought the Kryos to replace a worn-out "poofy" jacket, and I'm convinced I made a good choice. Within minutes of putting this jacket on, I'm nice and toasty -- sometimes a little too toasty! The fabrics have a nice feel: especially the cuffs, which also have the thumb holes. Tons of pockets, lots of zippers for venting, and a removable "snow skirt." If we ever get any more snow, I'll have a real opportunity to put this jacket through its paces. I marked it as feeling true-to-size, but it actually feels somewhat large. I got a medium, and I'm 5'10" 155 lbs. It feels slightly too big, but not so big that I think a small would have been better.

by fromSolid Piece of Equipment I bought this jacket a few weeks ago and was supprised to find that it was still available on REI-Outlet today. It's a sound piece of clothing that I bought for hiking/climbing trips, and although I haven't had the opportunity to test it out in either of those situations yet, I have no doubt that it will perform well. The build quality of this thing is spectacular. It has plenty of well-placed waterproofed pockets to store and protect your gear, as well as an invaluble ventalation system under the arms and a powder skirt to keep out snow and wind. Oh, and when they say it's waterproof, they mean it. I've held this thing under a faucet and it litteraly repells the water. Take note that the jacket runs VERY big. I'm 6'0" 155lbs and I would normally wear a large-sized down jacket to allow for extra layers underneath, but I read elsewhere of the sizing issue and went down to a medium. I still have plenty of room for extra layers and my long arms are quite comfortable in the sleeves. If you're looking for a great jacket at a great price, get this one. It's sweet.
