User Review: Mountain Hardwear Men's Nitrous Hooded Jacket
Fabric: Green seran wrap
Fill: 800 fill down
Price Paid: $120
This jacket does not have the durability I have come to expect from Mt'n Hardwear.
The fabric is disturbingly thin. I tore a one-inch hole in it the second day I owned it without even noticing what I snagged it on (and I wasn't even outside!). I patched it up with a few stitches that have held since then.
The hood is a problem. According to Mt'n Hardwear it has a "Sleek, low-profile insulated hood provides a close fit." It is sleek and low-profile with a helmet on! It is neither of those without a helmet on. And there is no drawstring to cinch the hood tight.
On the plus side, the jacket is warm and light. Very warm for the weight. It makes a great insulating layer, but pretty much requires a shell over it if you are outside because of the delicate fabric.
I gave it three stars because I'm going to love it til it falls apart. But I think that won't take too long.
