Mountain Hardwear Men's Seraction™ Jacket

Elite-level performance in a mixed rock and ice-climbing jacket. Designed in collaboration with alpinist and ice climber Tim Emmett, the Seraction Jacket’s Dry.Q™ Elite waterproof technology starts expelling excess heat and vapor immediately for instant breathability during rigorous climbs. Stretch panels across the back and hood allow maximum mobility.

I wear a large in all Mountain Hardwear clothing and this is no exception. I found that the MH Super Chockstone jacket works very well with the side pockets/vents on this jacket. My ghost whisperer fits underneath with no issues. I mainly use it backpacking in the Pacific Northwest and absolutely love it.
I would recommend this product.

I personally use this product for backpacking, its very light, fits very well, I cant imagine how they could improve this product. With every feature it is evident that thought of the user was put into it.
I would recommend this product.

Although at first it seems to be made with good quality materials, just after one season of light usage I've noticed signs of failure:
1. The material is developing creases in multiple places allowing the water to go in easily.
2. The waterproofing is GONE in multiple places and in just 10min of light rain I got soaked: it was not my own sweat! I have washed the jacket a few times without very light detergent and this seemed to helped very temporarily: 1 week or so.
3. Overall this jacket/material is a big failure as you would expect to last more than one year...let's hope the warranty process is painless.
I do not recommend this product.

I use this biking to work everyday, and it blocks the rain, breaths just like the description talks about and i show up to work @ the best temperature of not too hot and not too cold.
I would recommend this product.

Good but...

I scored this jacket at a hefty discount from some cool MHW reps who were working a tent at a festifval a season back. I have since ice climbed, biked and shlupped to the top of Denali with this jacket (among other notable climbs). My critiques of this jacket are: 1. The full microfiber liner on the inside collar to protect the chin is great if its dry but if it gets wet, and it does often be it from precipitation or breath, it is uncomfortable and is downright awful when it freezes. I would have been more pleased if they put a patch of micro fiber over the zipper garage and lined the rest of the chin area with the waterproof fabric. The fabric is soft enough to pull this off very nicely; 2. The face fabric started to pill on the hip where the waste belt and climbing harness rub. Bummer!; 3. The velcro on the cuffs love to collect ice and snow; 4. The fabric is bagging out in little pockets/blisters at higher stress areas around seems; 5. The DWR is a little wonky and sort of half wets out. The water doesn't immediately penetrate the face fabric but seems to get caught in the nap and slowly works its way in. None of these quirks have deadlined the jacket but they definitely erk me.
However, I do not hate this jacket and it has served me extremely well. What I like about this jacket is: 1, The stretch panels and hood are dynamite; 2. The material is very soft and comfy; 3. The weather protection is great; 4. The utility of the jacket is elevated by the superior layout of pockets, zippers and cut; 5. The Q-dry is pretty dang good.
My $.02 is to buy the jacket if its on sale or you are really taken by it in the store. I was a victim of both and am mostly satisfied with my purchase.
