User Review: Loki Men's Mountain Hoodie
Source: bought it new
Probably the most innovative jacket out (especially for the price).
- Face gaiter
- Lots of pockets
- Super bright color
- Cheaper than some of the brands you know and love
- Not as windproof as Polartec (but good enough)
- Mittens don't fit well over thick fleece mittens
- Sleeves are a little short while riding a bike with the mittens on
Overall a pretty rad jacket. I find myself wearing it all the time. It is pretty windproof (although not as much as Polartec soft shells).
Despite a small lack in windproofness over other jackets it still holds up well especially if you're on the move. The hood is a good size without a helmet but a little small if you're going to have it over one. It sheds light rain and is overall a pretty standard soft shell, about as warm as a fleece jacket.
It has a nice zipper with big teeth that seems much more durable than my last softshell's tiny toothed zipper that failed after a year and a half. But lets be real, the reason you'll buy this jacket is because it has built-in mittens and a face mask. They both work well although the mittens don't fit well over too bulky of gloves. The built-in face gaiter is amazing and I think every winter jacket should come with one.
I use it for snow boarding and xc skiing and fall mountain biking. This will be my second winter with it. I haven't had any of the quality issues others complain of but then again I think it was already sitting in the gear store for a year old when I bought it so maybe their QC has declined.
