This jacket is typical MT Hardware: the construction is flawless, the materials are super high quality and it looks great. I travel for work a lot and I wanted something that could keep me dry and warm while complimenting the dress clothes that I am forced to wear while visiting clients. This coat is prefect in that capacity and it is compact enough that I can fold it and slide it into the pocket of my carry on rather than wrestle a traditional trench coat into the overhead bins.
My criticisms are largely trivial except for my take on the hood. I'll save that for last. The cut of the XL size is a little bit big for everything but wearing over a suit coat. But, that is what I bought it for so no worries there. The cover over the zipper could use some hook and loop closures or additional snaps because it tends to flap in a good wind. The angle on the pockets makes it a bit difficult to get a hand in but once you do there is plenty of room. A light fleece lining in the pockets would be a nice addition.
The hood, however, is the reason I did not give the coat five stars. It is cut like it is meant to go over a helmet. It is highly unlikely that I will be wearing a helmet with this coat so it seems like a waste of fabric. The bigger problem is that there is no way to adjust the length between the crown of the hood and the nape of the neck. If one tightens the bungies around the opening in an attempt to keep the wind from blowing the hood off, it draws the brim down and obscures vision. A bummer in an otherwise excellent product.
The hood zips off so until I can come up with a fix for hood adjustment I'll be wearing the coat with a wide brimmed rain hat.
I would recommend this product.

Overall, I was disappointed. The jacket is very stiff, and for a long jacket that's not appealing. It was very well made, as all MH gear is, and I have no doubt that it would have performed well in the rain. But the style was lacking and it didn't feel comfortable. Sad to say, but it's in the mail heading back to them.
I would recommend this product.
