I love my transition jacket and use it for trailrunning and nordic skiing in any condition.
My question is, is there a jacket in the mhw range with same great athletic fit and material BUT a tad burlier and with a helmet compatable hood? I just ripped my ice/alpine climbing jacket during a fall and need a new one. I wear a medium in this and it's just right, can fit a powerstretch top underneath. I have had real problems finding a good alpine softshell that isn't baggy around the waist.

Let me start off by saying that these are decent gloves for snowball fights and light work outside.
For their intended use, alpine climbing they are not durable enough.
I've taken these gloves on one 3 pitch waterfall climb and one 7 pitch alpine route and the leather palms are completely trashed. I've glued several abrasion holes and one of the seams but I won't be taking them to anything serious anymore as I need gloves I can trust.
Let me just clarify that I haven't done anything special to these gloves that I haven't done to previous ones, the leather used simply not durable at all.
The best part is that since I bought them in Canada and I live in Norway I can't do much about it part from writing an honest review.

I was wondering about the fit of these on those plastic boots they look huge, I have a pair of heavy leather hiking boots as well as Scarpa Jorasses mountaineering boots, I want the gaiter to be real snug, how will it fit? I guess I would be going for a small one. size 8-9 boots and I'm 1,75m tall.

I honestly haven't worn any of my softshells or gtx jackets since I got this jackets two months ago, ice-climbing, skiing, work, shopping, drinking, winter camping, sex (I'm going to clarify that I was joking about that last one, but if would if I was to do it in outside in the winter). I half expected it to rip long ago but it hasn't yet. When it does I'll buy two more. The weight to warmth is unbeatable and I'm def buying MontBell sleeping bags after this.
