Stanwrote a question about Mountain Hardwear Quasar Pullover Jacket - Men's on March 6, 2012
With the features of the Dry Q elite, i assume this jacket could be used as a summer rain jacket...but it is marketed everywhere as a winter shell which raises some doubt in my mind. Can anyone attest to the performance of this jacket in hot/humid climates?
Edit* Well i am more or less between this jacket, the Jovian and the Stretch Cohesion...and I'm battling with a few questions......My Primary use for this jacket will be backcountry/mostly summer time trekking..shelter from the rain and occasional cold. However it will see some alpine use as well. While i understand the Drystein is a combination of various materials and therefore does not include pit-zips..i am a bit skeptical at its effectiveness when so many other Dry.Q models have pit zips...furthermore a jacket like the Cohesion is under a pound with saves weight..but is a Dry.Q core model...how inferior is the Dry.Q core to the elite? aside from the obvious price difference..how better off would one be with an Elite model?
i know the pot has a titanium coating. would a titanium utensil produce any scratches on that? probably not?
so i ordered the brown pair, the glasses are real nice, light and fit well. The lenses...well all i can say is..its comparable to HDTV..imagine seeing life through an ordinary T.V and then upgrading to HDTV when you put these puppies on. Its really that good in cutting glare and sharpening contrast. GET EM!
can any body attest to this bags ability to hold its dryness if overboard?
