Finally a perfect jacket
January 30, 2012
I love this jacket. I don't require a hood that fits over a helmet, but I do want a jacket that breathes well, will keep me dry no matter what, and is durable. This jacket finally fits that description. I'm 5'8", 150 lbs, and the small fits quite well.
The shell is super tough, and although I haven't abused it much, I have no doubt that it can take anything that I throw at it. The fit is a little more boxy, but it works well for layering, much better than the Drystein.
Breathability is PHENOMENAL. I've owned Gore-Tex, Pertex and eVent products, and this is better than anything I've ever used. Waterproofing is also as good as or better than any of those.
The only slight issues I have are the sleeve length is at the very edge of being too short, and the pockets aren't in the best position. They tried to put the pockets high enough that they wouldn't be blocked by a hip-belt, but they're still about 1/3 covered. No too big of a deal since they have a napoleon pocket, but just a minor concern.

Very nice jacket. Light, breaths well, and waterproof. I would like it just a tad longer in the sleeves and torso, but this is common in my size. I'd swim in an XL. 6'3" 180 lbs ordered a Large. This appears to be helmet compatible and has a built in visor. This will be my go to back country jacket in both the summer and winter.
THE ONE AND ONLY...

Picked this specific Jacket to replace my Mountain Hardwear Back Country Recon which was probably the most versatile shell of it's time and packed with durability . To begin the DRY Q material really does work in a variety of climates and activities. What I most liked about this product was that the fit wasn't designed for super skinny people as I am 6'0" 205 lbs (Athletic Build) like several others in this line. I also liked the hood that was anatomically correct (Not excessive like the Jovian line to incorporate a helmet). DO NOT anticipate for this to keep you warm alone in cold climates, it will require layering...However, if you want to use it during physical activites it will do exactly what it is designed to do KEEP YOU DRY!
