User Review: Mountain Hardwear Men's Phantom Jacket
Price Paid: $190
If I had to do it over again I would not have purchased this jacket. Not because it's poor quality. It is well made and VERY light (I wouldn't dare put the jacket through rough hiking). That's what I wanted. A jacket to take backpacking in the colder months for warming up at camp, and that's it. I didn't need a jacket with reinforced this and that.
All is good except for the hem length! I'm six foot and I got a large. The hem is too short! The jacket barely goes past my waist. So whenever I bend over or sit down the jacket raises above my pant line. This, as you might guess, lets in cold drafts! This would be okay if I was wearing bibs, but I don't wear bibs backpacking, even in winter. If they had made the hem one inch or so longer it would be PERFECT!!!
