    Stretchdown Hooded Down Jacket

    A fierce adversary of howling winds and cool temperatures, the Mountain Hardwear StretchDown Hooded Jacket is a trusty companion on cool hikes or cold alpine missions. Designed for just about all of your cold-weather pursuits, this jacket features a lightweight and tenacious stretch-knit fabric that provides weather-resistant protection, which enables it to be worn on its lonesome or layered underneath a hard shell. Additionally, the 750-fill power Q.Shield down insulation is fortified with a water-resistant coating that safeguards the insulation from light precipitation, making it a down jacket that you won't be afraid to wear when there's a chance of drizzles or flurries. Perhaps the most notable feature is the stretch-welded, channel construction that not only prevents blistering winds from penetrating through to your core warmth, but assures ample temperature regulation and furnace-like fervor, even on the coldest of days.

    • A lightweight and warm jacket for cold weather pursuits
    • Stretch knit fabric encourages movement and provides comfort
    • Q. Shield Down resists water to keep you warm and safe in the alpine
    • Stretch-welded baffling prevents cold spots and adds longevity
    • Fixed hood ensures added protection when the winds start to whip
    • Zippered hand warmer and media pockets keep your goods nearby
    • Item #MHW00RL

    Cozy and durable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Was looking for an upgrade from my patagucci nanopuff and landed on this one. Happy with the fit and warmth and it’s even pretty water repellant too. I’m 5’7” 130 and small is perfect for me. Been wearing for a few weeks and no complaints.

    Great Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    Main issue with most down jackets is when you bend down or stretch your arms the jacket can be restricting. Mountain Hardwear has really outdone themselves with this one. By far my go-to jacket from 50 to 10 degree days. Warm enough for the cold days and moves with your body, the stretch is amazing. Fit is short and fairly boxy but sleeves are nice and long/normal length.

    Main downside to me and why I did not put 5 stars is the material seems to be wearing around the seams and feathers are coming out after about a year.

    Hood blows off

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: L
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    Jacket is really nice. warm. fits well. HUGE drawback: Hood has no drawstrings, elastics or anything else to keep it on. The first time i went out into the cold without a hat, i put the hood up and it blew off. Useless bulk. Buy the one without the hood.
    "Fixed hood ensures added protection when the winds start to whip"..only if you have a hat on over it.

    Love this jacket!!

    I get tons of compliments on the color of this jacket, it’s very unique! I like how the down/puff is stretchy and not shiny. I ordered a L to make sure I could wear a sweater or fleece underneath (I’m a size 8, about 5’8”). I highly recommend this jacket!! Also easy to wash.

    Best coat

    Love this puffy. I have been an avid Patagonia fan for years. I decided to switch things up and replace a thick Patagonia puffy I’ve had for years. I’m so glad I switched! The fit of this jacket is so much more flattering and feminine. It is incredibly warm!!

    Love this Series!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'5"

    I love the Mountain Hardwear Stretchdown series. I think my favorite part of these jackets is the "stretch-welded baffling" because it keeps the down from falling out from the seams. I also love the fit of these jackets, they fit fairly snug, but because of the nice stretch, you don't feel very restricted. The material also is super nice. Feels soft and isn't loud like some puffies can be, but also technical enough where I can beat it up and it still performs.

    Don't love the fit (boxy, short)

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Size Bought: M
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    I already own a MH Ghost Whisperer jacket that I LOVE and assumed this jacket would have a similar fit. Unfortunately, the fit is very different - it is more boxy and also on the shorter side. It would be a good option for those who prefer a looser fit or want to wear a couple of layers underneath. Would also work well for someone on the shorter side (I'm 5'6" but have a long torso. I usually wear size M in MH outerwear and that's the size I ordered)

    Great fit!

    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    I absolutely loved this jacket. Feels soo soft and comfortable and warm, I've recommended it to many. Agree with other review about perfect sleeve length! Like the jacket was made to fit me.

    A little boxy

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    I was looking for a puffy that would be great for all activities, and after researching, I landed on this one! I read the reviews were true to size, so I ordered a Medium, especially because I want to be able to layer. The photos depicted a slimmer fit, so when I put it on, I was a little disappointed that it was so boxy and doesn't look as flattering. Super warm and overall fine for everyday wear, but it was not what I was expecting and I regret taking the tags off!

    Love this coat

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 125lbs

    I love this jacket so much. First of all it is form fitted and sexy. It is very warm and comfortable. I ride horses and this jacket has a bit of stretch to it which makes it the perfect jacket to ride in. The sleeves are the perfect length! I just cant say enough good things about it. Highly recommend it!

    Great puffer

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: S
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    I'm 5'5", 135 lbs, C cup, bought a small. Fits perfectly! I love the color (I got it in Smith Rock), the stretch is a nice added benefit to the fit, and the matte-look fabric is great. Fits well with both just a t-shirt on (it's that warm) but also with a heavy sweater. Super warm, super comfortable jacket. New daily favorite for colder months.

    Not bad.

    I ordered the Blue Spruce in small.
    Pros:
    So warm!
    Beautiful color.
    Long arms.

    Cons:
    The fit is kind of boxy and tight in the chest. Not as fitted as I was hoping it would be. I did try it in medium as well but i felt it would be too baggy to layer under a shell..
    Hood is not quite big enough to go over a ski helmet comfortably.

    Perfect!!

    It's just turned colder here in Utah and I needed a lightweight but warm jacket for the falling temps. It's like the jacket was made just for me - it's fits so well, with or without the flannel & fleece underneath. Very lightweight, love the matte finish and longer arms. This jacket got me excited for winter!

    Short torso for a tall person

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    I'm 5' 9.5', 160 lbs and ordered a medium. The arms were too bulky and I thought made me look wider than I am. The torso and arms were much shorter than I anticipated and when I opened the package, it smelt horribly of chemical treatment. I'm not sure if this is due to the special down inside of it, but it was nearly unbearable for me. I also thought I would like the matte finish, but I guess I prefer the shiny down coats. Overall, I just think this wasn't the right coat for me, though it does look as though it's made with quality.

    Great Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    I love this jacket. I did fairly extensive research before purchasing. I wasn't sure if the XL was going to be too large or not since I am in between sizes. I ordered the XL and it felt just a little on the large side, so I also ordered the L to try on. The L fit just fine, but not with as much room for holding things in the pockets. So I decided to stay with the XL. Maia helped me get that all arranged, and made it completely painless. The pockets on this are large enough and secure enough that I don't need to carry a purse when I wear it, which is lovely. I love the purpley color of the dark tannin jacket. And the stretch in this is impressive. It keeps me warm in all the temps I have thrown at it thus far, (which is probably down to about 28 F at this point, but I am hoping to put it through more soon.) and I also don't overheat in it too quickly either. It seems to keep me at the right temperature across many different ambient temps, even inside my office where it runs just a little cool sometimes. Also it feels fairly durable compared to any other down jacket I have handled. I was showing it to my husband, and he liked it so much that we ordered him the men's version. BC's customer service is so good, I was able to just send Maia an email of what he wanted, and she made it happen. Thanks Maia!

    Perfect!

    I picked this out for my Girl Friend for Christmas after picking up mine a few months earlier and loved it! This is what she had to say: "Anthony picked out one of the best winter coats I've ever owned. I've never been one to wear jackets but living in Utah has been a challenge without one. This jacket keeps me warmer then ever and completely dry! Mountain Hardware has become our go to! "

    Great Jacket!

    I ordered a size large and it fits well. I wear this jacket all the time. I purchased it to replace a wool aire hoody that I had for years. The book aire changed the sleeves, which I did not like, and then discontinued the jacket all together, so I was looking for a replacement when mine wore out. This jacket is warm and comfortable, but still not too bulky. It is stylish enough to wear out on the town. It is my new "go to" puffy coat. The only negative, is that I ordered the zinc color. The jacket that I received does not have the chest pocket as pictured and has a blue interior instead of the light lavender one in the picture. I liked the color in the picture better, but this one is still a dark blue and it was not a big enough deal to send back. Especially since I did not have another one to wear in the meantime and I am a serious, puffy coat addict! I will be ordering another one when this one wears out. I have been wearing it almost every day for about three weeks now, and it does seem to wear well. I have not washed it yet. Hope that helps you all decide that this is the coat for you!

    Perfect...amazing fit and awesome color!

    I was looking to replace my Patagonia down sweater jacket with something that was slightly more fitted but just as warm. I had my eye on this jacket and my gearhead Sam had lots of positive things to say about it. This jacket fulfills everything I was looking for. The fit is perfect and not boxy and I can still wear a layer or two underneath. Super warm! The hood is great and perfect as is or covers a beanie without feeling too tight. The color choices are great. I went with the Blue Spruce and get lots of compliments. The material with the matte finish (not shiny, like most other down jackets) holds up really well, does not show dirt and repels water like a champ. I wear this everywhere, walking my dog, running around with kids and anywhere out and about when it's cold. Well worth the money, it's a quality jacket!

    Great Fit and Color

    This is a really nice puffy that can be worn casually or for active use! It's warm but still very breathable and I really like the subtle color of Dark Spruce against all of the black jackets out there.

    This could easily be worn as a midlayer under a shell for skiing, hiking, or snowshoeing on a cold day. It's not very wind resistant so if you are going somewhere that has harsh wind chills you may want to opt for an extra layer or a nice shell.

    Unanswered Question

    Is the blue spruce more of a green or blue? It looks green on my phone, but blue on my computer.

    Unanswered Question

    I noticed slight styling differences in some of the color options,
    (Black has no chest zip pocket, no pricing differences). I assume this is new vs. older model, any way I can be sure which style I am buying, or is everything exactly as shown?
