Men's Alchemy™ Hooded Jacket 4.3 5 3 3
I had sworn off softshells... I wore it to the summits of Mt Rainier, Hood some others, its my ski jacket and, after lots of wear and washing the DWR finish is great and its WAY more waterproof and BILLIONS times more breathable than gore-stuff. I got mine pre-release so I got an entire season of wear from it. I used to hate soft shell jackets after one left me hypothermic on Mt Adams but this jacket is making me a believer. Not a soccer mom softshell to wear around campus this is for the mountains. The hood fits over a helmet perfectly. I am 5' 10" and weigh 185-195 and the Large fits with layering room underneath. Zippers are still really stiff and the shock cord adjusters are impossible to use with gloves so dial it in before you climb. January 9, 2015
Time Will Tell I just purchased this jacket a week ago and here are a few first impressions : I plan on using this piece for ice and alpine climbing. For a long time, I gave up on waterproof/breathable garments mainly because they're waterproof, but far from breathable. I read a lot about the Dry.Q Elite technology and I hope that it's everything I want it to be. I'm 5'10" and 175 pounds. The medium fits perfect except it's a tad tight in the shoulder area. I feel the material ride up slightly in the arm pits, but it's not too bad. The material is definitely soft-shell, but ZERO stretch to it. Pocket placements are perfect and the hood swallows my BD Vector helmet with no issues. The two-way zipper is a nice touch for venting and using with a harness. The craftsmanship is spot-on and there doesn't appear to be anything overlooked. So far, the only downfall is the weight penalty. Compared to a lot of new shells on the market, this one is pretty heavy compared to the ultra-lighters hitting the shelves. The State Orange is what drew me to the jacket in the first place. It's bright and you could probably direct traffic from the moon. Love the color! November 22, 2014
Excellent cold weather rain jacket This jacket is very breathable and works perfectly for being out in the cold rain. Its not very insulated so I pair it with a lightweight down jacket. I'm 5'9 165 pounds and the jacket fits well. Sleeves are an inch too long but otherwise a great jacket. November 18, 2014
