Description

Take to the backcountry in the Brono.

Mountain Hardwear built the Men's Brono Jacket from Rebar Ripstop Softshell fabric for failsafe protection from penetrating alpine winds. It also included stretchy, wicking side panels since you need to be able to move freely, too, This three-layer softshell sandwiches the highly breathable, windproof membrane between a soft, wicking brushed polyester inner layer and a quick-drying, abrasion-resistant jersey knit outer face. This high-performance body is complemented by the Tufstretch Thermal side panels, which allow for total mobility as you tackle the route. For an extra touch of comfort, the Brono also includes comfy Butter Jersey inner cuffs.

Probably the North Face. But this one is more breathable for more intense activity.

Does this coat have interior pockets or pouches?

I disagree a little with Thomas. The fabric used for the side pockets gives you two pockets/pouches on the inside that you could use to put something in. I believe all areas of those openings (besides the top) are sewn shut so items wouldn't fall out. It's not really a pocket per se and I'm not sure MH intended them to be used as such, but they could function as pockets. They're not zippered though and probably shouldn't be classified as pockets so Thomas is right in that regard.

Mountain Hardware has another customer for life

The construction and material quality are tops. Jacket has a nice light fleece lining to keep you warm even with short sleeves in 40deg temps, not to mention excellent wind protection. The fit is athletic and some may not like the high cut armpits, but it allows for great mobility without moving the rest of the jacket around. I am 5'10" 195lbs and pure muscle and a large fits great.

Fantastic, except for arm holes

I should preface this review by stating that MHW is my favorite brand of outwear because of the excellent quality of construction and the absolute perfect fit of most of its clothing for my 6'1", 180lb athletic frame. I have more pieces of MHW clothing than I can count. All of my shirts, pullovers, and jackets are Large and the all fit great. Except the Brono.

The Brono is perfect for me in almost every way. Excellent construction, tapered athletic fit, good length for its intended purpose, useful interior and exterior pocket locations, etc. Even the high cut arm holes serve a purpose in that they theoretically allow the body of the jacket to stay put when reaching overhead. Unfortunately, the arm openings are cut too small to wear comfortably with anything other than a light base layer underneath. Even then they are tight enough to cause a fair amount of extra perspiration. I have athletic arms with some muscles, but by no means am I muscle bound, and all other MHW tops fit great.

I ended up returning the jacket. I even tried on an XL locally - the arms fit better, but the rest of the jacket was too big. If I could afford to buy this jacket for only those days that I need nothing other than a light base underneath, I would consider it, but I need a little more versatility.

If you are very thin, this might be a great jacket for you. For anyone else, particularly those with an active and athletic build, I believe you will be disappointed.

I agree completely with this review. I'm 5'11", 150-160lbs with an athletic build, but by no means super muscular. I ordered this jacket in black and sapphire because I wasn't sure I'd like the sapphire. I liked both colors very much, but it's just too tight around the armpits to keep it for what I wanted it for (more of an everyday jacket for non-outdoor activities). Just wearing a button down shirt underneath was too tight in the pits. Beyond that it was perfect. I would like to try a large, but figure it would be too big everywhere else. I've got the G50 on order so I'm hoping it fits better even though I like the look of this one better.

Nice jacket, but cut of arms is odd

I purchased this jacket, but returned it. Had a prior Mountain Hardware softshell that lasted about 5 seasons and I loved. This was similar in terms of features. It is a slightly thicker/higher quality than the G50, and a bit warmer. The reason I returned it was the cut on the shoulders/upper arms is odd. Other reviewers have noted this too. I'm 6' and 185 pounds, thinner "runners" type physique, not "ripped" in the shoulders and pecs, but found this jacket too restricting in the shoulders especially with an insulating layer underneath.
