My friend got this Insulated, DRy-Q Elite jacket for less than a week and she return it back to the store because she's feeling cold outside with it on not so cold Canadian winter days ( under around 0 to -5 degre celcius). She's not active or use this jacket for sports.
I didn't understand why it feel cold because I know MHW stuff and it's usually pretty good. But here's why.
My understanding is that The Dry-Q Elite is a membrane that breathe too much and does not allow the body to add warmth ( and little humidity) to the inside of the jacket before it can breathe. All membrane gore tex or other need some kind of vapor pressure and heat to Kick-in, that way you can feel the warmth and the more vapor inside, the faster they go out. Not the case with Dry-Q all time vapor can pass trought.
Also, I think that the pit zips are useless for this membrane because it breathe so well and it add a feeling of cold because they are not covered with fabric on the inside arm so you can feel the cold there too.
The synthetic insulation maybe is also not enought isolating the exterior cold and the polyester fabric is thin outside.
Fit is excellent, style and waterproof is perfect.
My recommendation is to buy it for sports or multi underwear setup, not for standalone winter jacket for braving cold winter.
