User Review: Mountain Hardwear Exposure Parka
Fabric: 2-Ply Gore Tex
Price Paid: $400
If you are currently considering this jacket, buy it! I cannot even express to you how nice it feels to be on an expedition where you have the only dry jacket out of the entire group. When I got home I actually wrote a letter to Hardwear congratulating them for a job VERY well done. The Gore-Tex shell worked flawlessly, as did the hood and powder skirt.
First, it went through a 6 hour rainstorm in 40 degree weather. Then as the temperature dropped, snow poured upon it. Under the jacket, I only wore a Mountain Hardwear Tweed Fleece Pullover, and was pleasantly surprised when I realized that even this was too much clothing- I was hot! This jacket has accompanied me skiing, snowboarding, climbing, and just chillin in temperatures as low as 20 below; not once have I wanted anything else. As you probably know, Mountain Hardwear is among the best, if not the best brand out there. Save an extra week's pay if you need to, because this is nothing less than 100 percent worth it.
