Great Winter mid layer or Fall outerwear

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

First off big thank you to Mountain Hardware and Backcountry.com for selecting me to review the Mounkey Man Grid Fleece Jacket for the Backcountry.com community!

Have only had this item for about a week now, and will update this review when I have a better impression of the jacket. So far I'm very happy with it. It's thin and breathable with a slim athletic fit but still provides a lot of warmth. Pockets are simple and well arranged, the zipper is smooth and easy, and the fleece material gives it a very comfortable feel. I'm 6'3 and 180 lbs and received a Large, but believe an XL would have been a better fit for me (or Large Tall if it existed). While it fits my shoulders and and torso well, I can't use the thumb loops for more than a few minutes without feeling them digging in (common problem for me, I'm just tall, skinny and gangly, which is why I still say it fits true to size). Zipping up with the hood on would also probably be more comfortable for me in an XL.

Other than my personal sizing issues I'm stoked on the jacket. I think it's great for cold weather running, fall outerwear, or a mid layer on cold winter days. With a nice base layer underneath I'm comfortable using this jacket as outerwear down to around 20 degrees, maybe around 10 degrees if I'm doing something active (take note that I'm used to cold weather and run warmer than most). I'm excited to use it as a mid layer skiing when temps drop down to 0 and below here in Jackson. Definitely a product that I recommend!

I have an older Monkey Man fleece. It is the only MHW product that fits differently on me. I normally wear small in everything. For the Monkey Man I had to size up to a medium. Does this product fit like the other Monkey Man products?

Responded on

It does. It's definitely intended to fit snugly to your body, so if you want more of a sweatshirt fit I'd size up again.

A big hit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bagged 3 of these. one for myself and one each for my lads for a Telluride ski trip. They wore this and the Patagonia Down Shirt as mid layers on alternate days. Hopefully they will now ditch those awful, ghastly, naff, cotton, baggy "hoodies" when they get home to London. Warm, slim-fitting, vents well and when Jack Frost starts to gnaw at your exposed parts, just flip the hoodie under your skid-lid and it provides welcome insulation from the elements

Unsure

I like this fleece a lot, mostly.
I hike in the mountains of Montana a lot. I foresee this being a great mid or outer layer . I got it to be a layer up from my Patagonia R1 Hoodie (one of the best items I own).
So far I think I will be happyish, but there are some details that could use some tweaking still


Pros- Its pretty warm, yet breathable, very versatile.
Cons- Several small things. The thumb loops are too tight to wear very long. The hood comes to under my chin, and is not a balaclava. It is fitted in that it would not go over a helmet, but isn't really that fitted.. The flap behind the zipper has loose stitching that began to get stuck in the zipper on day one.

EDIT:
I am very disappointed in the quality of this item. Beside the cons mentioned above. The elastic waist drawstring has broken. I have older MH gear that is of a very high quality and lasted many years. I hope this doesn't represent the rest of their lineup. I will be wary of continuing to buy their brand.

Is it windproof?

No. Something like the Airshield Monkey Man would be though.
