Best mountain jacket

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:

I was in the market for an all around mountain jacket wanted a bright jacket with a helmet comparable. This fit the bill. Best thing is the windstopper feature. Way better than traditional gortex as in almost all situations you don’t need a truly waterproof jacket. I think this was a great first year for this jacket definitely can use a little refining of fit around the shoulders but nothing to bad to complain about.

So close!!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Backcountry ALMOST hit one out of the park with this jacket. The blue color is great, it seems well constructed, and it is immediately noticeable how well it breathes (while being pretty water resistant). Unfortunately the cut of the hood and neckline is super odd/big. The neckline is HUGE, and there is no drawstring to cinch it up. The hood is huge as well. I wear an XL helmet and the hood is swallows my noggin A pass pocket on the arm would be really jibe assn.

Nice shell

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Size Bought:
5' 7"

I had gotten two different shells for my husband to chose from and this one won out due to the nice bright blue color and the big pockets and the fit. However, wasn't easy because the other one had the arm pocket for the pass and armpit vents. Still, the front small pocket will probably work for the pass and the vents are ok. Had to send for a Small instead of a medium, he is 5'7. I think the windstopper feature will be great.

Nice, quality jacket without frills

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

This is a nice jacket. It's not a GREAT jacket. It's pretty bare bones and is missing some key features - a pass pocket on the arm, pit zips would be nice for additional venting, having pockets inside the jacket are great for touring to stuff goggles or gloves into. However, this jacket really doesn't have much in the way of features - the vent pockets on the front are nice, but if you are actually using them for vents you have to open the pockets and risk everything falling out. Overall, the jacket is well built, quality GoreTex with stretch, and overall well made. But it's a nice touring shell that is missing some quality features you can find in more expensive jackets. I would never pay full price for this jacket and paid under $200 which is why I'll keep it and use it as a backup to my go-to setup.

Better than the pants, but still not 100

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 10"

I purchased this shell with the accompanying pants for cyber monday, and while the jacket is better than the pants and gives a great value at the sale price of $180, I do not think I would be reviewing as positively at the retail price of $449. The shell fits true to size, and was comfortable. The blue color gives a great contrast with the yellow pants, and I have enjoyed the jacket since I got it. The additional vent zipper is great, and the "vent pockets" work well, but I would like to see some pit zips in addition at this price point, and it would be nice if they extended the soft touch material at the top of the collar so you can more comfortably use that as a face covering. For what I paid, im happy enough with it, but like the pants I would not even consider paying full retail for it.
