Your hardest working down jacket.
Earning its name from its ridiculous warmth-to-weight ratio, the Mountain Hardwear Men's Micro Ratio Down Jacket provides exceptional warmth with minimal weight. Grab it before your next thru-hike or use it as your everyday winter jacket and you'll be hard pressed to find a situation it isn't suitable for. Mountain Hardwear takes a water-resistant nylon shell and fills it with plush, water-resistant Q Shield down feathers. Whether you're walking through a snowstorm or get caught out in the rain, the down fill won't lose its loft or ability to keep you warm when wet, eliminating a major pitfall of traditional down jackets. If you heat up during a long approach or on the push to the summit, just stuff the jacket inside one of its main hand pockets, throw it in your pack, and continue on your way.

Excellent down jacket
Really like the fit, and weight of this jacket. I think they changed the fabric on the outside of the jacket this season as my old Micro Ratio felt a little more fragile. This jacket feels bomb proof! Good job MH!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: large
Contrary to some reviews, this (L) fit me perfectly. Quality is superb. Great product(s).
I ended up returning this jacket because it fits a little wide near the shoulders. I feel like those football players with the shoulder guards on. Any way, I stuck with my patagonia downs jacket instead.
