Alaska tested, backpacker approved

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Maybe I'm biased because I've never had a down jacket before, but this one is great. I'm 5'7" and 155 lbs with a D-cup, and my size L has enough room for several layers but isn't totally unflattering and overly bulky - I can fit my rain jacket over it comfortably. I think, however, that I could possibly get away with a M, I just ordered the L and decided to go with it, so I haven't actually compared to the two sizes. I ordered it for a recent two-week trip to Alaska and wore it almost every day. This included bushwacking in the Denali backcountry (it didn't rip) and staying in a chilly little mountain house. At first I wasn't sure if I the soft lining around the neck and wrists were my style, but I love them now. Also saved my cold hands to have the lined pockets. The neck is not too loose or too tight when the jacket is zipped all the way up.

Super Warm

My husband got this for me for my birthday and I love it! I'm 5'8 138lb and I wear a medium and I still have rom underneath for a hoody. Occasionally a few feather will pop out but nothing too bad.

This jacket is super warm and it cuts the cold wind, I wear it out and about, snowshoing and hiking.

I have worn this jacket nearly every day for the last year! I love it.. I ended up getting an XL (5'11" 140lb) because they had no other sizes and I wanted it so much! It is a little roomy but its perfect for a sweatshirt underneath. ( I get cold veryyy easily).. The only thing that I dont love about this jacket is that the feathers keep sneaking out, but Im sure that if you didnt wear it every single day it would not happen as much...

We have no local vendors for my GF to try...

We have no local vendors for my GF to try on a Mountain Hardware jacket. Can someone compare the sizing to a Patagonia or Marmot woman's jacket? (she seemed to be a L in the Patagonia, and a M in the Marmot)

Best Answer

My Mountain Hardwear rain jacket is a medium, my Patagonia down jacket is a small, and my Marmot softshell is a medium. Most jackets or sweatshirts that I wear with women's sizing I tend to be a medium, and this was true with Mountain Hardwear. For a down jacket, I would recommend ordering a smaller size for layering purposes. And if it turns out to be too small, you'll just have to pay a little bit of shipping to send it in to backcountry and exchange it for the correct size.
