Mtn Hardware scores big again
I'm 6'5" 220lbs and find Patagonia products among other manufacturers to be cut too short in sleeve length. Mtn Hardware (size XL) always delivers for me in this department and the Nitrous is no exception. This jacket says it is relaxed fit and I wish it was cut just a little tighter around the belly but at least I knew it would not be athletic cut when i bought it.
They've made a few improvements to mirror Patagonia by adding pocket zips and now the jacket packs into it's own pocket. Kinda would prefer the stuff sack, but I guess it's nice not needing to keep track of it.
Was looking for an upgrade & better fit from my old Patagonia micro-puff. So far this jacket has been exactly that and very happy with my purchase.
