Good but not great...
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
This is good if you get it on sale around 100. If not there are better jackets to purchase at the same price point such as the Patagonia Adze and the Marmot Leadville. The Android blocks most win, not all. The wrist closures seem like a good idea but in use they seem and feel cheaper than a velcro closure that would do a better job. The fit is also too boxy.

What is the difference between the Android and Android II?
The Mountain Hardwear Android is an older model softshell jacket that used a simpler construction material, called Deflection softshell fabric. The newer model Android II uses the AirShield Core fabric which does a better job of stacking layers of different fabrics to offer a higher quality of breathability, wind resistance, and lightprecipitation protection. The design is similar in both jackets, with 2 zippered hand pockets and a zippered Napolean pocket. The newer Android II model also has a new integrated butter-chamois wrist gaiter to offer comfort and added warmth by sealing out the weather.
