Challenge the elements.
Mountain Hardwear beefed up the Gravitor Inslulated Jacket with its moisture-blocking, extremely breathable Dry.Q technology so you'll stay dry when raging storms slam the trail. While your buddies are getting soaked or suffocating in their swampy 'waterproof' jackets you'll just put your hood up and keep going. Your body will waste less energy trying to maintain its temperature, so you'll have more fuel for the fun.
- Double layered Rebar Rip is durable and tough without being heavy or bulky
- Dri.Q Elite membrane blocks heavy snow and even rain while remaining highly breathable from the second you zip up
- 40K-rated fabric is able to stop moisture penetration in harsh conditions
- Thermic Micro insulation blends warmth-holding hollow fibers and loft-retaining solid fibers for maximum performance
- Superior breathability reduces the need for zippered vents giving you a lighter more streamlined jacket
- Dual hem drawcords and adjustable cuffs seal out the cold
- Higher pockets are accessible when you're wearing a harness or pack

Such a steal

Ok... I admit I work for the company. But this jacket is awesome and such and great value. The lightweight insulation package combined with the Dry.Q Elite (air-perm. Read: extremely breathable) is incredible and so comfortable. I ski in this jacket, climb in both summer and winter, and just use this jacket for walking my husky.

I recently moved to Madison, WI, and have...
I recently moved to Madison, WI, and have not yet experienced a mid-west winter. I was wondering if a jacket of this sort is too warm or not warm enough for freezing temperatures. I walk a total of 40 min a day, so I need it to be fairly warm, but preferably lightwieght. Any suggestions for other jackets, or comments on this one would be extremely helpful. Thanks!
it only has 80g of insulation, so no.. its not warm enough on its own! but with a good fleece under it, it would be fine!
This jacket keeps changing
There have been three different versions of this jacket over the past few years. A couple years ago, the laminate was Conduit, and it was apparently not very breathable, based on what I've read. Last year's version, with the Dry Q Elite shell, does not have a flap over the zipper. That is the one I have. My version in size medium weighs 1 pound 6 ounces on my scale, making it significantly lighter than the specs listed here for this year's model. My best guess is that Mountain Hardwear decided that the version from last year was awesome, so they redesigned it just a bit, named it the Carillion, and put a big price tag on it ($400). The Carillion's stated weight is the same as my Gravitor from last year. The Carillion has a different face fabric, but the same weight Thermic Micro (80g) and the same Dry Q Elite laminate. Then they made a cheaper, heavier Dry Q Elite insulated shell and put the Gravitor name on it. Just guessing, of course.
