User Review: Mountain Hardwear Men's Alchemy Jacket
Source: tested or reviewed it for the manufacturer (kept it)
One of the best all around jackets.
- warm for weight
- great fit
- cuffs at wrist
Full disclosure, I am a GORE MOUNTAIN TECH member. I have owned this jacket now for about 1 year, and it is pretty much the jacket that I wear 90% of the time while outdoors in the winter. It's not to heavy, yet keeps you warm, and is very comfortable. Also, the outer material is tough! I have tried to abuse this jacket, and still no rips or tears.
Its sizing for me is perfect. I am 6'1 190 lbs, and have a large...fits like a glove. It has thick fleece around the cuffs which helps keep the wind out, but can feel a little tight, especially if you have a watch or something on.
Overall, outstanding jacket..highly recommended.
