    Solid vest

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    First, I must congratulate Backcountry on the speedy processing and delivery. Ordered Wed morning and received Thurs afternoon. Wow! As far as the vest, I think it is an athletic fit. I have a 44" chest and 36" waist and just fits. You may want to consider sizing up if close to the range. I am also pleased I have a long neck. The collar is higher than I expected. Material and manufacture appear solid and ready for cooler weather. Plan to wear this weekend -- I am doing trail work at 9500+ and forecast is for cooler than normal.

    Great Vest

    I had a Mountain Hardware vest for some time and really loved it. It was stolen so i bought this one to replace it. Its great too, but the pockets seem very high. the top of the zipper feels like its just under my armpits.

    So Awesome!!!

    First trip out of the package for these was a two and a half week Medical Teams International trip to Nepal (in February). I used these in the most remote Himalayan District of Humla. We got stranded in a freak snow storm that dumped over 2' of snow! They were a life saver!

    I took the Mountain Tech II vest up on a weekend alpine climb only to be caught in a driving snowstorm at ~10,000 feet as the sun was quickly setting. The vest was comfortable to climb in all day and allowed ample movement. Kept my core warm and dry as well as layered nicely both under and over other layers. I'll have this vest with me anytime I am in the backcountry from now on!!

    Weird Shoulders

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    Well selected materials, nice fit, great pocket layout. Returned it because the arm holes were gigantic, and didn't sit well on my shoulders-- a deal breaker in an otherwise solid piece.

    Good all around vest

    The tech II is not quite up to the elite level of the original tech vest, but still a decent vest with some cool color choices. The large runs a little baggy in comparison to my tech I vest, so doesn't fit as well for a mid layer as the original. I have a 43 chest and a 34 waist. I use this vest more for an outer wear layer over thicker long sleeve shirts and still use my original tech vest for layering under a jacket.

    Mountain Tech II Men's Vest

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: large
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 220lbs

    Runs narrow in the torso. Great fit in shoulders and length.
    Has front pocket good for glasses. Nicely made. No fleece so I will use this year round. I have other vest brands and size large fits well. I will exchange for the XL size.

    Unanswered Question

    Is the wind-stopping membrane in every panel, or are there hybrid-style panels that are totally breathable?
