Get your kinobi on.
MontBell follows the Japanese tradition of kinobi: function is beauty. The Men's Thermawrap Pro Insulated Jacket embodies this philosophy by combing the highest quality mountaineering features into a lightweight, simple parka. 80 grams of improved Exceloft insulation make the Thermawrap Pro 10% warmer and more packable than older models—compressing down to fit into the included 5.7in x 10.5in stuff sack—while retaining the synthetic insulation's hydrophobic properties. Windproof nylon treated with DWR provides a soft, quite, and durable face fabric perfect for mixed or wet conditions.
Stay comfortable during mountain ascensions and everyday outings with the ballistic nylon taffeta lining. Zippered handwarmer pockets and two internal drop pockets keep your hands free when traversing difficult terrain. The unobtrusive elastic cuffs, two-way adjustable hood, and hidden hem drawcord lock out wind and cold during extended hikes in less-than-favorable weather. Weighing in at just under a pound, the Thermawrap Pro is the perfect mid-layer jacket to stuff in your duffel while traveling or tuck in you pack during a week-long mountaineering trip.

What size should I buy? I'm 5' 7" 175 lbs...
What size should I buy? I'm 5' 7" 175 lbs (athletic build of course) and my chest measures 41" on the dot. I usually wear a medium in most brands but I heard Montbell can run a bit small.
MontBell does have kinda a funky fit that is normally a little shorter in length but I think it will actually be beneficial to your body type. At a 41 inch chest I am pretty hesitant to suggest sizing up to an XL unless you plan on getting more jacked. If you are maintaining your weight class stick with the size Large for now.
Which is longer (has better coverage) front...
Which is longer (has better coverage) front and back - the Montbell Thermawrap Pro current model, or the Arcteryx Nuclei? When you put on a men's large of each, and a women's medium of each, how much of a difference is there in length? The Nuclei looks substantially shorter from photos, but it's hard to tell without trying each on.
The Arc'Teryx Nuclei actually has 1.5" longer center back in the mens and about a .5" in the womens than the Montbell Thermawrap.
Liner more than jacket
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
From the photo this looks like a substantial jacket. We purchased it for someone who spends a great deal of time outdoors. It is fairly thin and might make a good liner for a windproof shell. It's not all all-purpose jacket we hoped it would be.
Great synthetic jacket!

- Fit: True to size
This is a really great synthetic puffy. I have a slightly older model - seems the main diff is that they added internal pockets - I wish I had that to stuff gloves/hats into.
Very durable construction, I've used and abused mine. I'd be happy to recommend this just as much as a nano puff.
When I stuff it into my bag, I can definitely tell that it doesn't compress like down, but that said, it's not really a big jacket. And you have more latitude if it rains on you.
Helmet compatible hood, practical all around jacket. I would not recommend it for around town-only because the helmet compatible hood is kinda big and bulky unless you have it zipped all the way up. If you want one light synthetic puffy to do it all, this is an excellent choice!
My uses so far: 14,000' peaks, winter aerobic sports, around town, go-to insulating layer whenever I wander around Colorado.
For size, most alpine/performance gear (Patagonia, Rab, MH) fits me in small, this does too.
Hi, does this jacket have 2 inner pockets?...
Hi, does this jacket have 2 inner pockets? The manufacturer website doesnt mention this... Are they zipless? Thanks.
Yes this jacket has two internal drop-in pockets. This is to mean that they are in fact zipless
