User Review: Mountain Hardwear Men's Epic Jacket
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $85
Waterproof!! And roomy! Yes, I would definitely recommend this MH jacket.
- Completely waterproof
- The XL is roomy enough for a layered fleece or soft shell underneath.
- Conduit Silk traps some heat as well.
- The XL is maybe a bit big. Large is where I should have been.
This was my first Mountain Hardwear rain/soft shell jacket purchase. It has been everything I expected and more. I've worn it hiking in Oregon, SE Ohio ...in rain....the fall...spring....you name the conditions...it's survived.
It's been worn over a Marmot softshell jacket during the winter and late fall....the Conduit Silk trapped the heat better then I expected along with allowing the rain to roll off with ease. The pockets are aplenty...the hood is large enough to fit over a helmet or ski cap. No issues with the drawstring/hemcords on the side as well. The sleeves can be adjusted to fit over a layer...velcro is strong.
To summarize, if you're looking for a rain jacket that will keep you dry in driving rain while providing enough room/flexibility to give you comfort for a long hike...this is the jacket for you!
