Arc'teryx Men's Epsilon LT Hoody

rated 5 of 5 stars My favorite jacket. Ever. So i can see why people have a difficult time figuring out what this jacket excels at.  I have two, an XL that i have worn pretty much every day (except in the summer) for the past 5 years.  I use it primarily as a one-tool option softshell/ hardfleece.  This year i got a size Large to use for layering and couldn't be happier.  So it's not as soft or insulated as the Gamma MX, & not as stretchy as the Gamma LT.  It's also a little more than half the price of the… Full review

Mountain Hardwear G50 Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Very nice jacket. Well made and fits right. I'm 6' and 235 lbs and XL fits me well. I really like this jacket. Incredibly sharp looking and well constructed. I listed the higher hand pockets as both a pro and a con. They are designed perfectly when wearing a backpack as they stay above the hip-belt and remain accessible. On the other hand, they look a little odd and not placed well for the hands in average everyday use. So, take that how you will. They are designed with a function in mind and work… Full review

Dragon Heatwear Wyvern 3 Zone Heated Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Love the feel of the jacket. The battery lasts a good amount of time and definitely keeps me warm. I definitely recommend it. If you get cold, this heated jacket is a good one to get. Fit is good. Definitely check the sizing guide before buying. I got it right from their store. And they shipped pretty quickly. Got it in four days.  It can be a bit tight around the waist at times. Has adjustable velcro cuffs which is nice.  It is wind and water resistant. Holds up well in the rain.  It definitely… Full review

Rab Men's Vapour-Rise Guide Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars If you need a winter soft-shell and weight isn't an issue, this is the one. Purchased my first one last Autumn (2016) in size XL and in the striking Red colour. Rab states this jacket is a "Regular fit." I ordered my usual XL size, which for me (who's of rugby player build) is a tad long over my arms and a bit snug around my bulky torso. However. The jacket's length does give some additional protection below the waist and means that it won't ride up as easily when i'm reaching up or stretching. Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Whirlwind Hoody

rated 4.5 of 5 stars If a softshell and wind jacket mated this would be their offspring—a well-constructed piece that excels in certain conditions. I'd been looking for an in-between piece that would cut the chill from the wind but still have some breathability on the trail when a fleece would be overkill. As an Outdoor Research fan I jumped at the Whirlwind Hoody when it was offered on their site for 50% off despite not seeing a lot of info on it. Big score. It's usually the first thing I pull from my pack and I… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Dragon Hooded Jacket

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Not as waterproof as it should be. I'm a big fan of Mountain Hardwear products having bought many of their jackets and pants in the last 10 years or more. Most of their products I must say I have bought for wet weather protection rather than skiing, including Conduit Silk and DryQ Elite products. I bought the Dragon Hooded Jacket expecting to get a jacket like the Epic series of jackets, but with more features. I've loved the Epic jackets and have owned a few and although they may not have been… Full review

Toad&Co Aerium Shirtjac

rated 4 of 5 stars Four-way stretch makes this a versatile fall/winter jacket. On the trail or out to dinner, the jacket looks good and keeps you warm. I received the Toad&Co. Aerium Shirtjac in late September just in time for fall and winter hiking. My dark chestnut colored Shirtjac came in medium and fit my frame well. Constructed of 100% stretch nylon and filled with a coiled polyester insulation it has the styling of a shirt with the warmth of a jacket. The Shirtjac features a snap front closure, two side… Full review

Marmot Men's ROM Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Superbly breathable, wind proof, versatile softshell. My go-to layer from fall to spring. At 5'10" 200 lbs, a large fits me pretty well, with room for a fleece or thin puffy underneath. I use it day to day for over half the year, either by itself ~10°C or with a light insulating and base layer down to -10°C when I am active (ex. snowshoeing, hiking, ice climbing). Arms could be longer for climbing, although I have a +2.5" ape so take that with a grain of salt. Also, to stow the extra cord when… Full review

Marmot Men's Sharp Point Jacket

rated 3 of 5 stars Expensive! Durable as it lasted a few years and still good. Windproof but water resistant. Fleece backing means that it's not insulated, but provides a little warmth combined with the windproofness. Wear through cool autumn temps but not winter as it's not insulated. Tight fit esp. in arms/shoulders/chest so need to size up for layering. Bought an older version from years ago and it still fits. Appears that Marmot is finally retiring this jacket.It's windproof and water resistant. It can be worn… Full review
