User Review: Mountain Hardwear Men's Windstopper Tech Jacket
Fabric: Windstopper Gore
Price Paid: $130 at Mountain Gear
Best jacket of its type. If you can afford it, then buy one. (If you can't afford one, then suggest it would make a good present.)
Keeps out weather nicely; if you must wonder about what jacket to take this one will deal with the broadest range of conditions. Wore it at Lake Tahoe in January: outside was windy, cold, wet, and I was comfortable so long as I kept moving. (While not a raincoat, it was drizzling and this jacket kept it out). Useful pockets, and drawstrings to seal in body heat. Stylish, although the logo/brand is maybe too loud on this particular model. Lots of great colors to pick from.
