Mountain Hardwear Men's Android Jacket
Windy ridgelines and sunny-day snowshoe treks are a joy when you're wearing the lightweight, breathable protection of the Mountain Hardwear Men's Android Jacket. This lightweight, windproof jacket is made from Deflection Soft Shell polyester fabric and finished with a DWR coating to help water bead up on its surface. Two zippered front pockets keep your gloves and hat secure as you stop for a snack break in a 3-sided, wood-heated hut and a zippered chest pocket holds your map and point-and-shoot. One-handed drawcords at the hem and buttery-soft comfort cuffs help seal in body heat. Your lips may get chapped but your chin never will thanks to the Micro-Chamois-lined chin guard at the collar. From a fall photo safari amongst the fiery aspens to a day spent with quiet snow-covered evergreens, the Mountain Hardwear Android Jacket for men is the perfect outerwear for an aerobic adventure outside.

Great Softshell for Cool Temps
I purchasd this for work and travel. Wanted a nice durable all weather Softshell in Black. I typically wear button down dress shirts with some sweaters. It's not a layering jacket unless you size up one. I'm 5'11 180 and the large is perfect. I can layer a thin half zip fleece with no problem but is not loose. If you layer a thicker fleece it will be a bit tight. The fleece lining on the neck extends through most of this jacket so nice warmth. I have a North Face Bioinic and this jacket is much better for the same price. Arms are more athletic as some have noted and I always prefer the cuffs to velcro closures on the wrist. As always Mountain Hardware quality is great. Got a great price through Altrec.

GREAT JACKET - BUT NOT FOR ME
I purchased this jacket already having three Mountain Hardwear jackets that I really like. This one isn't for me, however. The jacket is listed as having an "athletic" fit which means it wears close to the body and has little room for layering. I ordered a medium (5'9' tall; 160 lb). A light woolen undergarment or something similar is all I can manage without having the jacket feel uncomfortably tight. The sleeves have a severe taper from shoulder to cuff making the fit at the wrists even more challenging. They also have a knitted "cuff" that's similar to other Mountain Hardwear designs, but in this case, they make an already tight fit even tighter and long-sleeved under layers get bunched up at this point. If you're wearing a watch, the fit is even more compromised. Since I perspire readily, I wanted a highly breathable jacket for winter hiking and snowshoeing; the knitted cuffs are great for keeping your arms warm but are a hindrance to dumping heat during an athletic endeavor. A simple, adjustable Velcro closure would be infinitely more practical, albeit not as classy or warm. The construction quality is great, the look is good and the Thunderbird red is a sharp color. Unfortunately, these don't make up for the fit issues and the jacket is going back. Too bad because I got it at a great price. If the features I've noted aren't a concern, choose your size carefully.
