I have enjoyed Mountain Hardware gear and clothing in the past but was disappointed with this jacket. It is plenty waterproof and it has stood up over the past year. But it is not very breathable and it lacks features that other jackets in this price range have. I find it feels clammy on a hike. There is no way to fasten it in the middle and have it mostly open. I wish it had snaps or a zipper that could zip up from the bottom. The hood has a brim which helps it stay open, but makes it difficult to stuff into a fanny pack for an afternoon hike. I expected more from Mountain Hardware.
