Iceland autumn conditions tested
The jacket rocks ! We went to Iceland in September / October, and was greeted with non-stop rain for the first 4 days, and rain every other day in our 15-day trip. Jacket performed like a gem and kept me dry in incessant rain. Despite carrying a day back pack everyday for our 15-day trip, and many times while wearing the jacket, there were no signs of wear on the crucial inside lining, despite the inevitable rubbing on the jacket from the shoulder and waist straps. This happened to me on a previous non MH branded rain jacket, making that jacket no longer waterproof. The slightly stretchy fabric came in useful as well, as I was able to wear an extra puffy down jacket underneath to keep warm when required. I've also put the pit vents to use when hiking, so was able to regulate my warmth level while exerting, and not sweating underneath. The jacket definitely did a great job ! Love it.

This is it!
The rain jacket that does it all. I can't believe how comfortable and stretchy this fabric is. There's pit zips, hood fits great, and the arms are not long on me! I love it so much I've purchased it for my boyfriend and it has easily become his favorite as well. I've taken this jacket countless of times to Oregon and found that it holds up so well. The Dive color is beautiful! Here is a photo of me last time I was in Oregon and wasn't stoked about the weather..

Uh, WHAT RAIN?!?!
MH has been absolutely on point with their women's jackets. Cut is superb for a technical piece, while still keeping it flattering. The material is soft, stretchy, flexible, durable, and keeps the wind/water out and off you. Definitely nothing like your usual rain jacket shells that are stiff, awkward, and crinkly. No regrets! I ordered a small which gives me some room to layer if I need.

Mountain Hardwear does it again
Ditch your old rainshell because this one is going to blow it away - I was surprised at how well this one performed! My first impression was that the material was super soft and stretchy, so much more comfortable (and less crinkly) than your standard rain jacket. I wore it during a light rain out in Maple canyon and stayed perfectly dry. Another plus to this jacket is it is more breathable than most. It has a flattering fit without being form fitting, so looks good and is easy to layer under.

Favorite Rain Jacket So Far!
I've had a pretty basic raincoat for a long time and while it's always worked, the material is stiff and it gets so steamy on the inside. I've only used the Stretch Ozonic jacket so far in light rain around Salt Lake City but so far I'm in love! The fabric is so soft and comfortable, unlike anything I've felt before in a raincoat. Also, it's really quiet without any swooshing. Even though it's really thin the material feels very high quality and I don't have any doubts that it would hold up to some serious downpours. The Dry Q membrane means the waterproofing can't wear out like on other coats where the waterproofing is just a coating. I love this thing so far and I'm so excited to wear it this fall! The stretchiness and compactness are perfect for taking out climbing and the pit zips are going to be awesome to let out some extra heat!

Weather? What Weather?
Great shell with really soft material, so it's comfortable without being overly "swishy". The durability makes it great to have whenever you're out adventuring and there's a slight possibility of some "weather" (like that ever stops us?)

Rad Jacket. I bought it for my SO, but I have one myself. Its super soft, and very breathable. It does run a little large though, so watch out for that.

Best Shell I've Owned
I used it majority for hiking and needing a light jacket when the weather was slightly windy and rainy. mostly through the fall season and the first couple weeks of winter with a thermal underneath. There jacket didn't have any real dramatic wear and tear just became more flexible! Awesome and held up over the last 3 years!!! I didn't write a review when I originally purchased but I can say that I still have it and use it regularly today in 2016. Great buy reasonably priced and long lasting. Would totally recommend for anyone!

Wonderful material. Wonderful jacket.
Do you know what I love about this jacket? It doesn't give you the sweaty elbow-pit. We've all been there; a non-breathable, noisy fabric. This jacket does not have those downsides! The material is breathable but keeps you dry, and I was particularly pleased with the elasticity of the material. It makes it not only more fitted, but it moves with you more comfortably than other, similar jackets. I wore this on the coast of Oregon and it kept me dry and comfortable on our wet hikes to waterfalls. I'm usually on the borderline of a small and medium in jackets like these. I got a medium, and it was a little baggy on the arms and torso. I would have been more comfortable in a small.

I've been wanted this jacket for a long time, and it definitely lived up to my expectations! You'll never believe this is waterproof because it's so soft, flexible, quiet and pretty. But, it is! It's handled heavy downpours and riding fast in the rain, with zero issues. This will work well for running, in pretty cold temps. If it's a really humid climate, go with something lighter and less water proof. This will also be perfect to backpacking and hiking, obviously. It packs down very small! Now I just need to save up for the Ozonic Rain pants... I'm 5'8

When I first got this jacket I was skeptical of it's ability to keep me dry. I had the North Face Venture but found it didn't hold up in heavy, consistent rain and thought I'd try out this one after reading Emily's review. I haven't been in a lot of rainstorms in this jacket, but I have taken a nap in the snow on it and stayed 100% dry. It's soft and breathable. I've taken it touring a couple times and the arm pit zips are prime. The hood fits over my climbing helmet. The fabric is incredibly waterproof, you can see water molecules bead up and role right off! The medium is a bit big on me, but is nice when I go touring and wear a puffy under it for warmth. It packs up incredibly small and light! Can't wait to use it on summer backpacking trips.

If you are an active junkie, who doesnt like to sweat, doesnt stay in despite the weather, but also doesnt like to look like the sound of a trash bag, and needs protection from the rain, look no further! This is a streamline, beautiful, breathable jacket. I was able to run in extreme comfort while it was raining! This jacket breathes like a dream, and is so soft ans silent! I love it! People were amazed as water just rolled off of me as i sped past them. The features are simple, two zippered hand pockets, adjustable cuffs, and a billed hood, making this a straight to the point jacket. I intend to use this as a running/ around town rain jacket. The fabric is light weight, and is tempting to want to bring backpacking, but because of it's softness, i fear snags, and wearing through the material with my backpack. This jacket is breathable, but it also will make cold temps more cold. The fabric chills against the skin, so i would recommend a good thermal if you intend to be out in cold temps. The cool temps, like down to 40, it should be just fine! It fits just roomy enough to allow for a fleece, or hoodie underneath the jacket. I wear a small in mostly everything, i ordered a small and am very pleased with it!
