User Review: Mountain Hardwear Monkey Man Jacket
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $100
Extremely breathable insulating layer.
- Exceptionally warm
- Durability/longevity of the fleece loft
I've worn this fleece for 4+ years and overall it has held up very well.
The jacket is NOT windproof as stated in several reviews...but then it is not designed to be windproof. Rather it is an extremely breathable technical piece for highly active users.
This jacket is made to transfer moisture during periods of strenuous activity while retaining warmth. It does this better than any other fleece I've ever owned.
The sleeves are designed longer so that when you reach (stretch your arms out) they don't ride up your forearm.
This is simply the best and most misunderstood jacket ever produced IMO.
