User Review: Mountain Hardwear Monkey Man Jacket
Source: bought it used
Price Paid: $80
Great fleece, incredibly warm, almost as warm as my puffy down jacket.
- Fits well
- Good layering
- Irritates neck just a bit.
I've used it around town in temps from 0 to 50, and it's performed well. Around 45 degrees, I start to seriously overheat. Also used it in Jackson, WY, on a snowshoe trip, great for layering.
It's not windproof, but it's not just a piece of mesh either, it will shield you from a little wind. Great layering piece, fit is excellent, I'm 5'10" 160lb, got the medium. The body fits like a body builder, with longer arms, but it looks good.
Only con is that the fur, although extremely comfy, can irritate and dry out the skin around my neck after wearing it for a while.
