Description

When you demand top performance from your gear, the Westcomb Mirage Jacket delivers.

Westcomb designed the Men's Mirage Jacket for high-octane athletes who are out pushing themselves in all types of weather, especially wet winter storms. This technical shell uses eVent waterproof fabric to give you exceptional protection from the elements. eVent is a unique among waterproof fabrics because it allows moisture to vent directly to the outside without first making you damp and clammy on the inside. This Westcomb jacket's articulated elbows let you adjust your skins with ease. With a trim, athletic fit, the Mirage looks great on and off the mountain.

Westcomb Mirage Back Length and fit compared to Vapor FX

Hi, I was wondering how the Mirage's back length and fit compare to the Vapor FX jacket? Are they the same in terms of fit, or is the Mirage smaller, shorter, trimmer fit etc...

Hey I have been trying to decide between this Westcomb and the Norona Svalbard Dri3 jacket. Ive heard awesome things about eVent but not as much about Dri3. I mainly hike and camp at around 4000 ft. in Blueridge mountains. Any suggestions?

I see that the hood can't be removed. Can it be stowed or secured?

Responded on

No its not designed to be stowed or secured. Its an attached 3-point adjustable hood. Pretty handy though.

Quality!

I'm a huge fan of eVent fabric, seems to breath even better than G-Tex Pro. The construction of this jacket is amazing, "Made in Canada" quality. I read somewhere the designers are ex Arcteryx people and, if so, it shows. Very well thought out. Bought the matching pants as well.

Which Westcomb Mirage jackets have pit zips? Does this model have them?

Also is the length of this jacket adequate for backpacking (ie a little more length)?

One concern I have is the pockets are at hip level, not chest level making them impossible to operate with a hip strap on.

Best Answer Responded on

Yes, laminated pit zips w/YKK T4 zippers.

Westcomb makes great jackets in eVent, and the length would be fine, but I can see how the zipper placement might be a problem for you. Another couple jackets for you to have a look at are the Rab Latok Alpine (item# RAB 0015) and the Latok (RAB 0016). Both are tremendous jackets, and I think you'll find the pockets to be placed to fit your needs.

Review Title

The Westcomb Mirage has the best weather-proof shell I've ever used. I'm fairly new to high-end jackets like this but am very impressed. I run 6 days a week regardless of the weather and this product has given me the best protection against the elements!

Dry and breathable in the worst conditions

I received this jacket from my G/F for xmas 2008. For the interior mountains this coat is overkill, we're usually riding in dry snow. Last week I had the pleasure of skiing two days of sleet / rain / snow at Mt. Baker. I was totally impressed with how dry I was. Not drop made it through. Check the pic of slush building up as we rode the chair. The eVent fabric is also super breathable. It was around freezing and I didn't even think about the pit zips while bootpackin the ridge line.

Buy this jacket and you won't be disappointed. My G/F has Arcteryx with Goretex and I much prefer the feel and stretchness of eVent. The back panel gives when you need to reach or when wearing a pack.

I'm 5' 8" inches at 150 lbs. I have the medium but would probably go for the small next time. The sleeves are a touch long and I would still have enough room to layer with the small.

What's the difference between the 'blue night' jacket pictured here with the light blue trim and the one on the westcomb site, where the trim is gray?

Best Answer Responded on

The one pictured on backcountry.com is the older version of 'Blue Night'. Most likely this is the one they have in stock. They are identical other than the coloring differences. I personally like the look of both versions, but I don't know where the most current color (blue/grey) is available. You might need to contact Westcomb directly.

Perfect design

I got this jacket about two months ago and have waited for it to be actually put to the test. I found the cut to be perfect. I'm 6' 3" and 175 lbs, I got a large because I use it for Snowboarding and backpacking and wanted room to layer. It has enough room to layer well without being overly baggy (fit mid layer puffy perfectly.) The arms are articulated so that you have full range of motion without lifting or pulling the jacket in any way. The cuff is slightly small so putting it over ski gloves is a little difficult if thats how you prefer to overlap. The powder skirt is a little loose, but still functional. One thing I did not understand until today was why the collar in the back came up above where the hood meets the jacket. It seemed to get caught up when I put the coat on. However, when you're riding in stomach deep snow there are very few things that can ruin your day. However, having your hood off on the ride down and throwing it back on without thinking you dump snow down your back is really annoying. This does not happen anymore, and I never realized how much more fun powder is when you get face shots without snow down the coat. I've tried to find problems with this jacket because of the price, but its pretty much as good as you can ask for plus a couple little extras.

eVent + Westcomb = perfection

A supreme jacket on the hill, or around town. The best feature besides it's style, function, and versatility it's made in North America! (Canada, ehh) The fabric is great breathes awsome and still protects like a champ from the rain and snow, needs a reco reflector though. Otherwise super easy to care for and the fabric is less crinkly than gore pro shell.

Ultimate backcountry shell

I have had my Westcomb Mirage for three seasons, using it all year round. I've used used this shell for everything from river guiding in the summer to winter backcountry tours, resort skiing, casual wear around town and everything in between. It has hundreds of days use on it and has performed flawlessly in all conditions.

The e-vent breathability is unmatched in a hardshell. Westcomb's choice of outer fabrics is light, packable and has shown impressive durability compared to other midweight shells I've owned.

The cut is somewhat trim, say 'alpine' or 'european' cut. What you end up with is a shell that if ordered true to size will be mobile yet trim for technical alpine pursuits or those who like more of a form-fitting garment. They slightly take-in the lumbar area on the jacket, eliminating the annoying bulge in the back that other garments have. If you like more of a freeride fit, you could up-size and get a shell that is loose and stylish while NOT being baggy.

This is the best all-around shell I have ever owned. It takes me from the backcountry to the bar, all year long. If I ever use this jacket beyond repair, I will absolutely order another.

Breathes no matter how warm you get

Seriously amazing. Never overheated even when I was hiking in waist deep snow up a ridge. Sizing Is true and allows layering. Pockets are limited but four good sized ones. Color is bright enough to be seen, nut not 80's bright

I'm 5'9" around 158 and I own A medium Mirage and it fits awsome! Not baggy a slim fit on me, with great sleave length and hip/waist length cut.

Has this jacket changed since the last years model? Specifically, the fit of the jacket? I have seen that the previous version was short and boxy.

Responded on

The length is still around waist, so a shorter cut. I wouldn't consider it to be a boxy jacket at all, it's a slim fit, but boxy no. I'm 5'8" and own a medium. A super nice jacket for the money.

Killer jacket...

Just picked this up and after trying it on and comparing it to Arcteryx jackets I was sold. Number one, I ride so I didn't want to look like a skier with a skin tight Arcteryx jacket. The construction is flawless with only the bare minimum of what you need so it is incredibly light which will be great for splitting. The cut is just sick too....I love how the back end is cut low which is great for snowboarders. The eVent is simply incredible too...I have Special Blend gore-tex pants and they are great but there really is no comparison. eVent is here to stay and I will not be spending any more money on gore-tex.

Responded on

Wow, no more Goretex. Just what conditions have you had your new jacket out in to come to that conclusion?

There is none better...

I bought this jacket (version without pit-zips) on sale for a little over $200... Best decision in buying a jacket I ever made. I just took it through the rough terrain of the Himilayas..no problem Then it was to the pouring rain and howling wind of the Patagonia, but I don't even think the inside of my jacket even knows what wind or rain is! It's been through hot and cold, but either way it performed professionally. You seriously don't need the pit-zips, which I was concerned about before getting the jacket...eVent is that good. The design, weight, looks, and performance are awesome, and even when I didn't think it could get any better, I noticed the washing instructions on the tag in my tent one evening, and it says to wash it frequently... Normally with previous coats I've had, I try not to wash it too often in fear of loosing the fabrics qualities to quickly. However, this jacket seems to be asking for the rain! If you find it on sale like I did, you'll have a perma-smile anytime you have to pull it out for the elements.
