  • Dry.Q fabric prevents clamminess and helps keep you cool and dry
  • Helmet-compatible hood features a single-pull adjustment system and extra beefy brim; Micro-Chamois™-lined chin guard eliminates zipper chafe
  • Mountain Hardwear Jovian jacket has superlight, extra-long pit zips and a 2-way front zipper for enhanced ventilation

Mountain Hardwear Jovian Jacket - Men's - 2011 Closeoutis rated5.0out of5by1.
Rated5out of5byfromGreat first impressionI have had the Jovian for one day and am very please thus far. The slim alpine fit is almost perfect for my body. I have 5'10" and 147lbs with an ape index of just about 1. The torso, back and chest were perfect for me, and the sleeve length was just enough. The sleeves could use one more inch on them, but they are just barely enough to fully cover my wrist and the beginning of my hands with my arms fully extended in front of me. The hood is huge and beefy. The main zipper is a bit stiff, like other reviewers have mentioned, but I did not have any trouble zipping it up or down. To zip it down you do have to use both hands if you have it zipped all the way up because the collar folds down otherwise, but that applies to every single jacket in the world with a high collar. Just give it a good tug with one hand holding up the collar and it zips straight down. The multitude of pockets make the jacket very functional, and as far as I can tell so far, the jacket breaths well and is completely windproof. I will post a review on the breathability of the jacket once I have put it through the wringer in some adverse conditions. But overall i am exceptionally happy with the jacket, especially given that I bough mine on 60% off.
