1 pretty serious design flaw
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Bought this jacket mainly for in-city use for the Pacific NW. I am 5'7", athletic 135lbs, and the M fits well--a bit long in the length, but roomy enough I can wear a med-thickness fleece underneath for real warmth.
Overall, this is a pretty good jacket--warm enough to be outside with a long-sleeved t-shirt underneath in mid 40 deg weather for < 1 hour, longer if I'm doing something particularly active like simple walking. Can't speak to the water resistance, as I'm not standing in a rain shower. Cuffed wrists and hood work well--the hood is roomy enough I can use a baseball cap underneath, maybe even a thin beanie.
Negatives? Well, a MAJOR one are the plastic drawstring tabs at the waist. They have a sharp edge that catches your hands, especially if you place them near your pants pockets. It seems to me that Mountain Hardwear overlooked what would be a basic fix.
Also would have been nice to put a chin contact patch of fabric rather than leaving it nylon, and some fabric in the pockets to make them better at warming the hands. And a chest zippered pocket.
Do those 4 things, keep the price the same, and this would be an awesome jacket...

I bought this jacket for its packability, rip stop material, and super lightweight construction. It is pretty warm, especially for how lightweight it is. I bought one for myself and then another as a gift. Great product!

This is a great jacket, either on its own, or as a layering option.
This jacket is RAD!
Ah, man, it's sweet. Im a 5'11, 160 lbs, 32" waist, the medium fits perfect. It's one of those mediums that you really don't have to worry about if everything you own is pretty much medium. Deffiniatly should be purchased as a midlayer, very very light and super soft and makes you look sexy. I would definitely recommend buying a patch set, I got a pretty cheap one, like 3 bucks, and theyre the exact same color as my jacket, again that is why it should be a mid-layer because it can get nicked pretty easily. But still, this jacket is super rad, there's no stopping you when you go into bullet mode after you pull that ergonomic hood on!!
Positives: it's very lightweight and feels warm. Negatives: a little too long and too wide (I wear medium), looks somewhat awkward. The bright yellow one I ordered is almost transparent and dark lining shows through. Sleeves are just barely long enough. After some thought decided to look elsewhere.
My new favorite piece! It layers very well under my hardshell with its slim cut, is nice and packable, makes a good little pillow for me at night and is super comfy to throw on by itself when its a nice 50-60 degree night out.
I was very warm with it under my hardshell when cross country skiing on a stormy 28 degree night.
I'm 5'11", 32" waist and 170lbs and the medium was a slim but comfortable fit. The sleeves are on the short side but I think that's perfect for layering under another jacket. The low profile cuffs are also nice for the same reason.
I'd say the body is a little on the long side, falling a couple inches below my belt line. The hood fits nicely under a helmet, another hood, or over a beanie.
Cons: my wife keeps stealing it.
