Aileenwrote a review of Mountain Hardwear Stretchdown Hooded Down Jacket - Women's on December 2, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
first, i have to say i'm a loyalist towards patagonia and marmot down jackets, but really liked the way the stone green looked on the site, so decided to give it a try (plus the sale from cyber monday didn't hurt). well, i absolutely LOVE this jacket. first, the color is matte, not like the typical glossy down jackets we're all used to. second, i love the stretch material (it's very similar to TNF's stretch thermoball). lastly, i would compare the loftiness/warmth to the patagonia down sweater with hood, except you're paying much less for this. i don't have any initial observations about it losing feathers yet, so we'll see down the road what happens. i've loved it so much i ordered it in two more colors.
