Mountain Hardwear Men's Mountain Tech Jacket
While there are plenty of windproof technical shells out there, few offer the extended breathability and wind protection found in Mountain Hardwear's Mountain Tech Jacket for men. This proven and popular outdoor apparel used to feature GORE WINDSTOPPER fabric, but in recent years Mountain Hardwear updated the fabric. This incarnation of the Men's Mountain Tech Jacket features an AirShield Core membrane that won't diminish in breathable performance over an extended period of time. Mountain Hardwear typically applies this windproof and highly water resistant fabric for utility outerwear, but the Men's Mountain Tech Jacket has a distinct alpine-oriented design with Airshield Fleece and breathable Deflection Softshell fabric that works well for climbing, hiking and climbing. Pit zips beneath the sleeves also help optimize the ventilation on long ridgeline ascents and other high-impact activities, too. The zipper pockets are placed high so you can access contents while wearing a climbing harness or backpack.

- Zippered pockets

I love this jacket. I have a vest, and bought this for my boyfriend as an all-around winter jacket - for outdoor activities and for when we go out on the weekends/at night. It has a great look, is light weight, is not bulky, has room for layers and provides great wind protection.

This is my third windstopper. The new jacket is styled differently, (materials and color) from previous jackets but same quality and performance. The collar and cuffs are a different design for better wear. I weight 160lb. and am 5' 10. The medium fits well.

I bought this for my husband, whose fleece(s) were aging and not doing the trick any longer. What I/he love about it: it's warm, windstopping, non-pilling, has great features (such as pit zips) and is perfect for the backcountry or casual in the city. The charcoal/black is very stylish. I can forsee this being around for a good 20 years...
