User Review: Mountain Hardwear Men's Typhoon Jacket
Fabric: Gore Tex Paclite
Overall I'm happy with the Typhoon Jacket. The quality and feel of the jacket is really good. The Pit Zips are a really good feature and I have them half open while I'm walking. The breathability of the Paclite is really good, much better than my old Gore- Tex, North Face Jacket.
The two front side pockets are mesh so you can have them open for extra venting. The top front pocket is a bit small as you can't really fit a map in there, this is a waterproof pocket. The hood works well but could fold away a bit better. The weight is really good.
They advertise the weight of jacket to be 439grams but my Large one comes in at 398grams which is a bonus. I wrote to Mountain Hardware about this 10% difference and they said that the weight was on the prototype model. It would be nice if the jacket was an extra inch or so long as some of my fleeces hang out of the bottom a bit.
Overall for the price you get a really good light weight jacket.
