According to MH's information on their website: Superlight, extra-long pit zips for ventilation. I have not seen the MH Jovian jacket. However, with my experience in dealing with Backcountry.com and they once did for me in the past, ask them to look at the product for confirmation. I am seriously thinking of getting rid of my 2 yr old Goretex Pro Shell and switching over to DryQ Elite. It seams they have solved a lot of the past problems that Goretex and eVent where trying to get right.

Since this product is from one of the many eVent fabrics available, I am wondering how windproof is this jacket especially in the winter? When on a ridge or even a chairlift during high winds (ie: wind speeds up to 70 mph), the early reports of eVent fabric from even last year indicated that the wind did penetrated the fabric in various other manufactures, whereas the Goretex Pro Shell had better resistance in stoping the wind.

Any input would greatly be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Last year I needed a new glove. I did not get this glove because of Ed Vistrus recommends them, but for 2 reasons; the removable insulating glove liner and the flexibility for usage. FACTS: It's a nice fitting glove. I skied and done various outdoor stuff with temps 20-30's, not cold. Added an N2Skin silk glove liner with temps 10-20's, not cold. This year, I am going to try the OR Vert glove as the N2Skin base layer for extra performance. With the regular Gore-Tex Shell, no clamminess. Bottom line: the glove works for me, shell only, shell + glove's liner and shell + glove's liner + N2Skin. That's flexibility.

For years, my base layer consisted of Hi-Tech man made products from different companies. After reading and hearing suggestions from others, I settled on a NATURAL product, Hi-End Merino Wool. I choose ICEBREAKER for their variety of styles and colors. I needed something to go underneath my Icebreaker Rock Zip (mid weight) as the next2skin layer (I always prefer a light and then a mid weight layer before adding an insulating layer). Let me tell you, the MONDO Zip is beyond words. After wearing for hours skiing or hiking, I do not feel damp like the man-made stuff, especially after adding layers when I need too. Yes, I am getting another one in a different color, of course. How can you go wrong with this product or any other product from ICEBREAKER? TRY IT!

Last season, I purchased a Mountain Hardwear Windstopper Tech Jacket. As a lightweight jacket, it was truly outstanding in every category. I could not wait to get the matching pant pants. This season I did and here is my conclusion, it is worth the investment. Perfect example, recently I went skiing in upper 20F and a brisk wind. My legs were nice and comfortable, even on the lift chair. My laying method: Icebreaker next to skin leggings (200 weight), WindStopper Tech Pant and Tenacity Gore-Tex shell pant. Even walking around with out the shell pant, I was fine. Honestly, in the last three years, I changes over to Mountain Hardwear products, and they have not fail me yet. I strongly advise getting the WindStopper Products.
