Summary

I would echo all of these reviews. This is the best piece of three- season gear I own!

Pros

  • Windproof
  • Warm without the weight
  • Packable and light
  • Very breathable and layers wonderfully

Cons

  • Not currently available

I would echo all of these reviews. This is the best piece of three-season gear I own. Its weight and performance are unmatched by anything else.

The only thing it lacks is that it's not waterproof, but pair with a light rain jacket and a short sleeve technical t-shirt and you can be prepared on the trail for almost anything from 40-80 degrees rain or shine. Paired with a long sleeve baselayer and a vest and you will be good into the 30s as long as you are active. It's not really dumping snow but even light dry snow is no problem.

I desperately wish Mountain Hardwear would reintroduce this just as it was originally with maybe just the addition of a left hand pocket or large rear stash pocket to hold that light rain jacket I mentioned. My garment is now about 10 years old and doing pretty well except for a few pulls and scratched and pinhead sized burn holes form camp fires.

I just wish I could own one or two more of these with one in a higher visibility orange or yellow for night and hunting season adventures.

I have worn this shirt for over 3 years of outdoor activities. I have used it for running in 30 degree temps to hiking to the top of a 14,000 foot peak. I love being able to pack one base layer shirt for my hiking trips.
