    Mountain Hardwear Mountain Tech Jacket - Men'sis rated4.5714out of5by14.
    Rated5out of5byfromExcellent jacket!!!I use this jacket primarily as a casual wear piece. I've had to relocate to Ohio (originally from the milder southeast). This jacket is my only outerwear piece beside gloves and a skull cap on most of my outings. Temps do drop to the single digits. Given this isn't an electric does a good job of blocking the wind and not allowing the cold to seep through as quickly. It is a warm jacket though....I'd say it's sweet spot range would be from 30 to 50. Underarm vents help with the upper end of the spectrum or when indoors. It is a very forgiving fit that isn't too snug....ideal for those with a stockier build. Highly recommend this as the single piece you can use year round.

    Rated5out of5byfromThis 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.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat jacket for cool weather.It's a great jacket for cool weather, but don't try to wear it year round. I bought this jacket before it got really cold here in KS to replace an old Columbia softshell. So far I have been pretty happy with it. It is light and comfortable and seems to block the wind pretty well. I can't speak to how waterproof the jacket is since I have not experienced wet weather with it yet. If I could improve anything on it I would make it a little warmer. For the price of this jacket I would have expected it to be a little more insulated than it is. I'd recommend this jacket to anyone as a great cool weather jacket.

    Rated4out of5byfromI like itHas better zippers than the Northface Bionic and appears to be a bit heavier. There are only a couple of things I'd do to improve this jacket. First is the chest pocket is on the right side making it very difficult to use for a right handed person. Second is that the side pockets are located kind of high, if they were a couple of inches lower, they'd be more comfortable and easier to use. And third is I would like to have an inside pocket for sunglasses. Been a great shell and with a pullover comfortable for extended period outside even with the temps topping out in the mid teens

    Rated5out of5byfromI 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.

    Rated5out of5byfromPerfect Winter JacketI 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!

    Rated5out of5byfromBest fleece windproof jacket...This is the BEST windproof fleece jacket I have ever owned. I have several damaged vertabrae and the cold weather and wind are not my friends. This jacket not only keeps me warm, but does an excellent job in keeping out the wind. It fits very comfortable and I have worn it with my Arc'Teryx Theta AR Jacket and fits very well with room left over for layering if I so choose. I like the pit zips as well for they enable me to stay cool, but protected from the wind and cold weather. I am very thankful for this jacket. I would highly recommend this jacket to anyone who like me needs that extra protection from the wind and cold weather, and/or for anyone who wants a very good windproof fleece jacket.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat JacketI 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.
