Outdoor Research Mithril Jacket
Price Paid: not recall
This is an awesome jacket. I used it all last winter ice climbing and above timberline in brutal conditions in the mountains of NH. The material breaths, it stretches it's really great.
I had originally assumed since it was a softshell type material that it wouldn't block the wind sufficiently for those -10f, windy days spent on Mt Washington guiding. But it does, and is still breathable. I don't understand how it works, but I don't have to.
It quickly became my go-to peice for almost any cold day whether I was climbing steep ice or walking on snow.
I am typically a size large, and this fits me perfectly. Great hood, great arm length.
