Versatile, Light weight, Water proof
The Mountain Hardwear Cohesion Jacket is one of the best versatile, light weight, water proof jackets I have owned, and the first one Ive owned that does not have the texture of a plastic trash bag. The jacket is a semi-athletic fit so you can still Keep wind and water out while having room for base layers that keep you warm without looking like the state puff marsh mellow man. Great for climbing without raising your body heat but keeps the chill of the summit out of your bones. There are 3 convenient water tight pockets with plenty of room to stow gloves and/or hand warmers. The jacket has a nice fitted look with both taped and welded seems. Great jacket, I love it, my only complaint is that the front zipper cover does not secure. Its stays closed but a button or a little Velcro wouldnt hurt.
