Recent Hard Shell Jacket Reviews

Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Great lightweight cheap rain jacket. Fantastic rain jacket. So much so that after losing my first one a month ago, I have just forked out for a replacement. I have also $400 eVent jacket sitting in my cupboard and use it for day to day wear.   I picked the Precip as I really wanted a jacket made from breathable material and that's properly vented. I have walked in the rain just in a t-shirt all too often because of overheating. This jacket solved that problem and at a reasonable price. Full review

ECWCS Gen I Parka

rated 4 of 5 stars A rugged, no-frills hardshell parka that will take whatever you can dish out. They're absolutely and completely waterproof, from several years of firsthand experience. The below-the-waist length gives complete coverage when bending, reaching, or sitting, and the hood is compatible with helmets the same size as or smaller than a GI Kevlar helmet. The Extended Cold Weather Clothing System (ECWCS) is a system of various articles of clothing designed to replace existing cold weather clothing articles,… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Minalist Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Minalist Jacket incorporates the latest Dry Q Elite fabric ,which keeps you dry inside. Asymmetric full length zipper and short expansion zipper keeps the chin protected from abrasion with enough room for a baklava. Best use for resort or back country skiing. Highly recommended. Overall view with left chin zipper open Showing internal hood pulls running outside into hood; also chamois lined chin flap. Adjusters are hidden in the hood at the top of the collar.  You adjust by pinching the adjuster… Full review

The North Face Fuse Uno Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars The North Face Fuseform Uno is a lightweight (12oz), 3-layer HyVent Alpha, alpine designed shell which boasts an industry changing innovation dubbed FuseForm. In brief, it allows for different weights of a material to be woven into a single fabric without the use of seams or stitching. This single piece is then folded, paper airplane style, into a jacket. The fit, and strategic added durability, in the upper torso, hood and shoulders are all major pros, while there are some omissions such as pit… Full review

The North Face Men's Mountain Guide Jacket

rated 2 of 5 stars Would not buy a North Face jacket again following this experience. Bought this jacket from a North Face dealer online. Thought it was a great deal at the time: <300$. Would definitely not buy a North Face jacket again following this experience. North Face warranty is not what it used to be, and surprise surprise neither is the quality :( Much better quality available from Patagonia or Arc'teryx or at least comparable quality from less expensive brands. Full review

Sierra Designs Men's DriDown Rain Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars The Sierra Designs DriDown Rain Jacket is billed as "a single solution for wet, cold environments." It is a waterproof rain shell insulated with DriDown (proprietary treated down which according to Sierra Designs remains dry 10x longer than untreated). It is a very well constructed jacket which for the most part works as Sierra Designs advertises. As a hybrid garment it will have its detractors who prefer traditional layering, but there are enough positive features that most people would find this… Full review

The North Face Men's Venture Jacket

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Great rain jacket if you are not moving. 400-foot mountain bike climb in 4.5 miles had me soaking wet under this jacket (outside temp 38 degrees F), with fleece under that and a base layer under that. Head soaked as well. Lousy. Keep seeing very pos review of this technology. Guess I am missing what others are raving about. Good fit. Holds up to rain on 50°F summer rain. Poor wicking performance on 38°F winter day, no rain but cycling hard up incline. Full review

Lowe Alpine Triple Point Ceramic Jacket

rated 0.5 of 5 stars I own three of these TPC jackets. All different styles. All three have failed with the lining flaking off. These are not jackets to count on for long term use. I have a Gortex jacket that I bought 26 years ago. It has lived in my pack in Europe, South America, and Africa. Still my jacket of choice.  The TPC worked, but wetted out after a week on the trail. Lowe Alpine recoated the outside. Now the lining is flaking off, as are the linings of the other two I own. None of these has gotten a tenth… Full review

Marmot Alpinist Climbing Jacket III

rated 5 of 5 stars This jacket has to be the most durable jacket I have ever owned. Marmot keeps replacing any ripped or burnt panel. Sometimes I can forgo a light pack because of the pockets or take a smaller pack. The venting is great. I use the wide cuffs as wind scoops on sunny spring days to cool down. It's nice to know you can use a jacket and not have to baby it. Tear or melt a panel- Marmot fixes it for cheap. I just duct tape the ripped panel until I get back home- and on 2 weeks its back good as new. I just… Full review
