Mountain Hardwear Desna Fleece Jacket
Great product but check your size
- Fit: Runs large
I loved the weight and material but ultimately I had to return it. I'm 5'11" 180 lbs with athletic build and normally wear Lg including the other MHW gear I own. This was sized larger than what I'm used to. Won't hesitate to buy MHW again and the folks at BC were fantastic, great to deal with and no hassle with the return.
Versatility and comfort
I love this fleece. The design and fit are excellent, and it feels great. It's slim but not completely form-fitting, and it's super soft. My only real issue is the sleeves - I have fairly short arms so the extra length is occasionally a little annoying for me, but it's not an issue when using the thumb holes. I wear this mostly as a layer under a synthetic jacket, and I'll point out that the exterior's texture is perfectly built to allow movement under layers. I'd highly recommend this if you're looking for a good layering piece. It also makes a great casual hoodie. Go for it.
I like it

- Fit: Runs large
I agree that it runs large on size, but I was able to shrink it some by drying it on high heat. Other than that it's great!
I want to love this jacket...

Purchased this jacket with the expectations of using it as a versatile mid-layer for cold weather ice climbing - what attracted me to this piece is the high zip up - I really like having a warm neck. What I found was that this thing is super baggy and becomes more so with time - I am 5'10'' and weigh 160. It is also dress length - I understand you want it to fit under your harness but there is too much that just bunches up. Also, the thumb holes are a bit small & bulky rendering them worthless when trying to use them with a glove - I experienced pain every time I used them climbing. Thank goodness for the BC return - sending this piece of expensive goodness back to the gods.

Not sure about this one yet, just took it out of the bag. It?s a very nice technical fit, however, not as form-fitting as I would expect from a technical fleece. The hood is also less ?ninja? than I expected ? more like baggy. I wear a medium in nearly everything, and I?m considering returning it for a small. (175#, 5/11, 41? chest, 31? waist, ordered medium).
After using this jacket for a bit, it has become my favorite piece of clothing i own. paired with a light or medium weight wicking base layer, its an awesome cold/cool running jacket. Vents heat pretty well and stops a touch of wind. the zippers are freaking amazing and the whole build screams comfort. if i could change one thing it would be the fit of the hood. needs to be a little tighter.
Should serve me well as a running jacket and climbing/ skiing layer.
