Get down with the Stretchdown.
There's something incredibly stressful about getting all twisted up in your down jacket, and the folks over at Mountain Hardwear seem to understand this thoroughly, which is one of the many reasons why the Men's Stretchdown Plus Hooded Down Jacket was created. With its go-getter attitude and spitfire construction, the Stretchdown brings your backcountry touring experience to a whole new level of comfort.
More specifically, the Stretchdown Plus features an extra three ounces of down insulation than its younger brother, the simple Stretchdown. Though, much like its more youthful sibling, this jacket features the same, dependable stretch welding that not only traps warmth, but prevents cold spots from seeping through to your core comfort. Additionally, the Dynamic-Stretch knit fabric assures an unobstructed range of motion, which comes in handy when you're cruising through tricky terrain, while the 750-fill down insulation is water-resistant for added protection against fluffy tumbles and unexpected weather alike. The fixed hood offers added warmth in the face of blustery ascents, and the myriad of pockets keep necessities close at hand.

- Q & A
Warm and comfortable jacket
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: XL
The Stretchdown plus is very warm, stylish and comfortable. Love the jacket. Just wore it in 20 degree weather with a light sweater underneath and i was very comfortable.
I got this jacket after returning the regular Stretchdown that is better used as a late fall / early spring jacket or midlayer for winter (I was cold in 30 degree weather).
The jacket runs big which is something I like about MH jackets as it fits me well (the regular stretchdown jacket has a narrower cut but still comfortable).
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs large
I bought this for my boyfriend who wears an XL across the board, whether it be coats, jackets, shirts, etc. I should have probably checked the size chart on this, but when it came in it was way too big. I returned it and will be buying one or two sizes smaller.
12/27/16 update: the large fits perfectly! He has worn it skiing and snowshoeing in the backcountry and said he has never been this warm in the mountains in late December. Might be worth noting that even after sizing down, the coat is still pretty long. Not necessarily in a bad way, but it hits right at mid-butt which is longer than the lighter Patagonia coats he is used to. Aside from that it's not too puffy and he loves the stretchy/matt fabric. Definitely a winner.
