User Review: Mountain Hardwear Exposure Parka
Fabric: 3 layer conduit
Price Paid: $200
I am an avid MHW fan, but I have to say these jackets leave a little room for desire. I work ski patrol in the Cascades and do waterice climbing and alpine style ascents, just to give you an idea of my range of use. I found that the shoulder yokes tend to absorb water more than the rest of the jacket. The zippers are neither welded nor housed very well. The snow skirt isn't too adjustable... Pretty much I didn't like this jacket. I bought it, wore it for a week on three summits and took it back. If you're counting on wet conditions I'd go another route. It would be great for dry, snowy condtions, but here in the Northwest that's just a dream we get every now and again.
