Awesome jacket! Packs extremely small into it's own pocket. I love everything about it. Looks / Fit / Functionality are all wonderful. It's a great temperature regulator. I've never been cold or too hot in this jacket. I'll never leave it at home while on any camping or backpacking trip in the future!
I would recommend this product.

Bought this jacket one year ago and really happy with it. Warm, light and packs really small (in its own pocket). The hood really keeps head warm when windy. The fabric is ripstop, but I managed to cut it anyway, but duct-tape can fix anything! Take it on every trip!
I am 5'11'', 180 lbs and I have large, perfect for layering.
I would recommend this product.

I just got this jacket so these are first impressions. I'll be practically living in this thing this spring through fall so I'll follow up with you then.
On first glance this is a nice clean design, reasonably lightweight, efficient design without lots of unnecessary junk. Looks good, not too techy, and they restrained themselves a bit on the logos (only two, hurray). I'm super stoked that MH is still making these with the 30D fabric. Seems like a lot of times all you have to choose from is a heavy winter down or an ultralight 7D offering like the ghost whisperer. The ghost has it's place, but it's definitely a specialty item (7D! What's that going to look like in 2-3 yrs?).
As far as downsides go the hood is too large and drapes down over my eyes a bit, but otherwise things seem fine. I'm excited to test out the treated down. It's pretty water resistant now, but it's new so the fabric still has it's DWR. I hold no illusions that the down is water proof, and I expect that when it is totally soaked it will be very not warm. However I do have some hopes about the "dries 30% faster" claim.
Another thing to mention is that when it arrived in the mail the down was totally flat and loftless. The garment was as flat as a loaf of wonder bread that's been wallowed on by an entire bison herd. Maybe it has something to do with the treated down. But don't worry! It lofted up nicely in a couple of days, and would do it quicker if you toss it in the dryer for a quick spin (low heat, and retrieve it as soon as the cycle ends!).
I would recommend this product.

Great at the campsite. Surprisingly resistant to burning fire embers and cleans up well.
I would recommend this product.

Sizing has changed in new products this isn't the exception. It feels a little cheap as if theres no down or content in it.
I do not recommend this product.
