Mountain Hardwear Compressor Hodded Insulated Jacket

I bought three Mountain Hardwear Jackets for my sons and could not be happier. They are of good quality, compared to puffer jackets thin but warm and were on sale. Even the normal price is not a rip off for this jacket. It fits nicely and is easy to clean.

great pack jacket for a boy scout

I bought this jacket as an essential pack jacket for my son's cold weather outings. It's much lighter and warmer than fleece and i don't have to worry about him getting a down jacket soaked through. It's not super heavy duty on the outer fabric but for it's intended purpose its as close to perfect as i've seen. I have a moutain hardware Chugach (Predecessor to the compressor) and it's lasted a lot of years with proper care. Love MHW gear. Great jacket.

Mountain Hardwear Compressor Hooded Insulated Jacket - Boys'

My son has had this jacket for a couple of months now. He frequently picks it over his other outer wear. He has yet to complain one time about it. When chilly mornings turn into warm afternoons, it easily fits into his backpack. I hope we get another year out of it. If not, I'll be replacing it with another Mountain Hardwear product.

Perfect Puffy

My oldest absolutely loves this jacket and so do we! It is durable, lightweight, compressible and warm when wet. On the coldest days a base-layer, fleece, the Compressor and a shell keep my 8 year old playing for hours without complaints of cold. He wears it hiking, skiing, sledding, to school and inside the quinzhee.

My son is 5.5 yrs old. He currently wears a size 6. We're looking for a ski coat for him that will work for alpline skiing, sledding, wearing at the playground at school, etc. Is this a tough enough coat to be worn as an outer layer? If this isn't the best choice, is there another coat available in his size that you'd recommend? (We'd like to keep the cost < $100.00.) Thanks

Best Answer Responded on

Jackie. First off, if your son wears a 6... look to a XS for the best fit as an XS = 6/7 in this particular jacket. Secondly, being insulated with Thermic Micro, this could be a good warm jacket for your son but it is not designed necessarily as a ski coat. Sledding, wearing around the playground however? This would be perfect. It is not waterproof but it has a very good DWR (durable water repellent finish) and can be layered underneath a shell jacket on the coldest days. If this info doesn't suit you, I would consider any of the other boy's ski coats in the "Boy's Ski Jackets" category on this site. I hope this info helps!

Excellent. Strongly Recommended

My son Harry (11 yr) has the large size and it fits perfectly.
Enough room to slip a fleece underneath once the weather gets ugly.
He lives in this jacket. It is well made, feels great and appears to be quite robust.

I am going on a climbing trip next year and wanted to know would this be big enough to have layering clothing underneath.

Responded on

Evan. Depends on the size that you buy. With that said, if you buy your normal size there is plenty of room to layer clothing underneath. I hope this info helps!

Just wondering if this coat will stand up to a rough and tumble 7 year old boy - I worry that the nylon might rip easily?? Is the fabric a little tougher than the adult version of this coat?

Responded on

Donna. 30D Nylon is a reasonably tough shell fabric that is used throughout the industry as a shell fabric by many brands. It is tougher than what we use on the adult version of the Compressor which is 15D to handle just that rough and tumble use. Could your boy rip the nylon? Sure. But, that would be the case with anything made of a similar fabric. Hope this info helps!

Best Answer Responded on

An emphatic yes! My 8 year old has put his through the wringer!

Responded on

Wish the adult version was made of the same thicker material. Sure kids are rough on clothes, but I think the the kinds of activities I participate in (climbing, backcountry hiking, etc.) can be just as rough on clothes. The fact that it's not is making me look at other similar jackets. A shame because I like it otherwise.

does this jacket keep u warm?

does this jacket keep u warm?

Responded on

This jacket is going to serve as a warm mid-layer or a lightweight-style belay style jacket if you are throwing it on as an outer layer during rest breaks. Just looking at how lightweight this jacket is should give you an idea of it's warmth compared to the subzero jacket. You just need to have a good idea of how you will use this jacket to determine if it is going to be warm enough for you and your purposes. Good luck!

would this jacket work well for a base layer in sking?

Best Answer Responded on

If you size this correctly this jacket would be great for skiing underneath a hardshell on cold days. I have a down sweater which is about equivalent to this in warmth and I really like using it in days when it is 20 F or colder. You wouldn't want to wear this against your skin though - plan on having a lightweightt long sleeve t shirt or something along those lines underneath.

Light-weight, soft and warm

My son who has just turned seven hates bulky jackets just like his mommy. He has a few good warm ski jackets (LLBean, Columbia, etc.) but we found ourselves having to do lots of convincing to make him wear his thick jackets as he tried to get away with wearing just his fleece even in 20F weather. I saw this jacket at REI and immediately realized that this may solve the problem. It was soft and light and it fit more like mid-layer piece rather than a typical ski parka that packs in lots of bulk. We ordered it here since it was on sale and now everyone is happy. If it's really cold (below 30F), my son will wear base, fleece and the jacket. If it's warmer, just the base-layer and this jacket is plenty-warm for active boys. I have a feeling that we'll keep buying this jacket in different sizes in the future.

Very Good

After having 2 North Face puffy Nupste down jackets for that past 4 years I bought this jacket for my 7 year old for Christmas. He loves it. Light and non-bulky yet plenty warm for most days playing outside in the cold-ass Wisconsin winter. He wears it more than all his other jackets combined.

You can get this jacket for $69.99 on other sites. Just FYI...

My Son's New Winter Coat

I love this coat and so does my 7 year old! It is not bulky, but keeps him very warm in the snow. Great purchase!

Great Jacket

I bought this jacket for my 5 year old boy who is on an alpine race team this season. It is very light weight, but that is exactly what I wanted for layering in the ever changing Colorado winter. If you plan on layering under this jacket I would recommend ordering 2 sizes up. I ordered one size up and it was a bit snug with 2 layers underneath so I sent it back for one size larger. It is a very cool color (burnt orange) and it looks great off the slopes too.

how would this jacket be in comparson to a down filled jacket for warmth? I'm not familiar with this insulater. I like the look of this coat, there isn't a lot of bulk.
Is there a coat you would recommend for winter use? Our tempatures vary 5 to -17 degrees

Responded on

During activities such as skiing, hiking, climbing or whatever your little buddy is into, this down jacket when paired with a good base layer and midlayer, will perform just fine in those temps. Proper layering is all about working smarter, not harder.

Best Answer Responded on

Kristine. This jacket is made with 120g Primaloft. Primaloft is used as a synthetic insulation throughout the industry in outerwear and sleeping bags by many manufacturers. The 'bulk' you mention is due to the 120g primalofts thickness. If you had the same amount of down and the same amount of primaloft the warmth would be similar but the weight would be different. Down is warmer for its weight than other synthetic insulations like primaloft. Combined with a shell and/or mid and base layers this jacket could be used in very cold temperatures. I have used it as an belay coat climbing and have skied with it on cold days. I hope this info helps!
