Warmth without the weight.

Rather than commit yourself to a large coat which will eventually become a sauna in the spring season, invest in insulated layers. The Mountain Hardwear Thermostatic Hooded Jacket for Men layers well with a hardshell or can be used alone during fair weather. The 15D Ripstop nylon body and 60g Thermal.Q insulation keep this jacket surprisingly warm and waterproof considering it weighs less than a pound. Two front handwarmer pockets, elastic cuffs, and a drawcord hem are all the features you'd expect from a winter jacket in a convenient, adaptable package.

Solid base layer

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

This is a great thermal hoody by Mountain Hardware. This hoody has a few functions that make it a great stand alone or base layer. First of all the hood has an elastic band built into the hood which pulls down around helmets and seat tightly. Oh yeah it also fits over a standard ski helmet, so it should fit over climbing helmets alike. The jacket has two zippered hand pockets with ample space for gloves and extras. Both hand pockets turn into a stuff sack for the jacket, which packs down to approximately 8x5x3. The jacket uses 60g of Thermal Q Elite fill. This down alternative provides ample loft and plenty of warmth. The Nylon material is soft against the skin and the waistband is adjustable with shock cord located on both the left and right side of the waist. This jacket has more of a relaxed fit to it, so those of you looking for a form fit, this is not the jacket for you. I am 5’10 165 lbs and wear a medium in this jacket which fits me perfect. This jacket leaves me room to layer underneath with up to two medium weight layers. This jacket is obviously not a standalone jacket, but I can wear this jacket as a stand alone down to the 30’s pretty comfortably. I personally do not like the cut for a standalone. I myself prefer a form fitting outer layer with exceptions. What I have found myself using this layer for is under my outer shell, like many have said below. While taking winter tail runs this jacket has excelled in part because the Q ELite down alternative does not compress like down does. This means your going to be able to insulate even when it is wet. For that reason it has been a great tool to have in my pack during mountain accents when reaching higher and colder peaks. I really like this jacket as my outer base layer for skiing paired with an un-insulated shell. Though this jacket pumps out heat, it works really well when it is in the single digits to teens.

Review Continued...
Even if I am only wearing a single layer under my jacket, I find this jacket to be to warm in the 20s and 30s. Now I wish the design packed down more to allow for more space in my pack, but 8x5x3 is not too bad for a alternative down base jacket. The weight of this jacket is nominal so you aren’t really going to feel it. The price point on this jacket is a little steep for a lot bases in this category, but the Q Elite alternative is going to keep you warmer than most of the primaloft products out there, and I guess time will tell if this material will hold up through the years. As I have more time in this jacket I will continue to renew my original post and add more photos as I have opportunities. We are still at the beginning of the season here.

I have the vest version of this jacket and LOVE it. I am curious if this jacket packs into it's own pocket as well?

Worth every penny!

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

Bought this jacket as a casual winter jacket for the quick dog walk at night. Initial impressions are amazing. Very light but warm and the hood is a plus for those real snowy days. Very light weight, you won't even feel it on you while you wear it. Size runs very true, amazing fit.

Good Alpine Jacket

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

Good synthetic jacket with modest water repellency for those warm snow days. This jacket does a good job breathing and staying warm while wet. Better than down.

I took away one star because its tight in the back. Therefore when layering, movement can be restricted

Loves this thing

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

Cuts wind way better than I though it would
Keeps me warm into the 30-40s and makes the 20s tolerable even with just a t-shirt.
Water-resistance for a light drizzle is fine, after that it gets pretty wet.
RipStop is wonderful so far. Fended off some 75lb dog paws and a stray nail that was protruding out of a cubbie(was scared on that one)

The medium.was a little tight on my deltoids but I do have alarger than average back so I returned my medium and got a large with there outstanding shipping.
Great for mid-layering on brutal days since this jacket is thin and outsanding as outerwear from cold to spring days.

Like I said, I am extremely happy with my.purchase. Now to see the long run quality, which I expect if good from.Mountain Hardwear

Not Versatile

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This jacket serves its purpose of being warm, light, and packable. I received the jacket last week and I've worn it everyday around town and it's kept me warm in the 40's and 50's with just a T-shirt underneath. It cuts the wind very well, and it does seem to be "water resistant" but it's definitely not for rain protection.

For camping and other rigorous activities I wouldn't want to wear the jacket without a shell, hence the title of this review. The downside of the lightweight construction is that the outer material doesn't seem very durable. I have been very careful to not nick it on anything, and I would be very nervous that any branch or rock would trash the jacket. Forget about wearing this thing around a campfire, any spark or hot ash would immediately melt a hole.

The fit is roomy enough, but the shoulders are a little restrictive. Raising my arms makes the bottom hem of the jacket raise up. Also, the jacket is a little long in the body, considering that it wants to be layered under a technical shell. I was very disappointed to discover that it hangs out 3" below my TNF Venture rain jacket...even though they have the same "rated" center back length!
