I got this as a replacement for my older Mammatus which had a collar problem. It is a huge improvement over the previous model - Gore Tex Pro Stretch is fantastic. It is much thinner than last years model but feels just as durable - and is much more flexible. I have not had it on a hike trip yet, but have done some cold weather biking / off-road unicycling with it and can say that it is very breathable - and warm at the same time. I took a long Vespa ride last night in the 30's with a Marmot Ama Dablam jacket under this shell - I was very warm, I even ran into flurries on the return trip. The shell is extremely windproof and waterproof - the new wind blocking powder skirt is a nice addition as too.

I just returned from a snowboarding trip to Aspen which was the first time I wore this shell. It is just fantastic, I love everything about it. I layered with my MH Alchemy jacket and MH Powerstretch undershirt and it was very warm in 5 - 15 degree temps. There was plenty of snow most of the time and I never felt a drop of precipitation / sweat the whole time. This jacket feels like it will last for years and was an instant favorite due to its longer length and abundance of pockets. I will not buy another shell that is not Pro shell material - it is fantastic!I bought this to replace my MH GTX 2.5 jacket because the fleece around the neck only lasted one season, I was very disappointed with it.

I had to return this jacket due to a defect - but was sent the new (2010) version under warranty - it is a huge improvement over the current model. It has a nicer collar and a wind skirt built in, also reflective zipper outlines. I noticed that the price went up $50 but it would be worth it.
