Men's Desna™ Jacket 4.4 5 26 26
Odd fit I was given a Desna Jacket as a gift and if it weren't a gift I'd return it. Here's why: I'm 5'9", weigh 160 and have a pretty standard body, with legs, torso, arms in good proportions and, depending on mfg., wear either a medium or large shirt or jacket, usually large. This large Desna is so long that it goes down to my crotch, about 3" longer than my MH Sub Zero parka, size L. Looks dorky, but more importantly it is a perfect length to catch on, say my mountain bike seat. Too bad, because it is a perfect jacket to throw in the Camelback, but I probably won't. The other issue is the hood. Great, I thought. Nope. It is huge. I have a large head and wear either a 7 5/8 or 7 3/4 hat. This hood is so large that a slight breeze whipped right in the other day and did nothing to keep my head warm. My daughter suggested that it might have been designed that way to go over a helmet. If so, it is a dumb idea, since there would always be a big gap between the bottom of the helmet and the face. So it could have been a winner, but isn't. For the price, it should be.

Not what I was expecting I was looking for a good jacket to wear hiking and withstanding the element of a cold KY winter. I usually buy an XL due to MH always fitting me tight (5 9" 200lbs). The jacket was way too big in the sleeve and body. I also did not like the material because I was hoping for a thicker material. If I would have worn this outside in the winter during a breezy day I would have froze to death. The jacket would have been best for spring and fall. The quality was what you would expect from MH...top tier! The function would have been great running or using it has a base layer. December 11, 2014
Athletic cut/solid fleece layer I purchased the Desna Hoody a couple years ago as a fall outerlayer/winter layer. It's a nicely designed, athletically cut fleece. The strong points for me are the hood, the full-zip front that covers the chin, the freedom of movement, and the thumb loops. I'm not a climber, but I do a fair amount of fall paddling and winter back-country camping. Just got back from a 8-day October canoe trip in Canada, and the Desna ending up being my go-to layer. Really nice freedom of movement in the arms for paddling. The hood was awesome when the wind picked up on the lakes, as were the thumb loops. Not designed to be wind resistant/water proof, but a solid fleece layer for active outdoor pursuits when wind/precip are low. I'm 5'8" 155 and the medium fits just a bit long in the arms, but solid everywhere else. October 11, 2014
Good but, not great The size runs a bit large. I expected it to be similar material to the Densa hoody. I like the pockets. March 10, 2014
Running big This one is lately running big. I normally take a large in Mtn Hdwr tops, but had to switch to a medium as the large was just too large. I'm 6'1" 165 lbs. Athletic fit? At any rate, it's a basic "inside-out" light weight fleece. Fuzzy inside, and smooth outside, which makes a lot of sense. December 22, 2013
Densa light hoody rocks! I like my new Densa Hoody. It's perfect for layering and is comfortable. October 30, 2013
SOLID jacket!! Over a base layer, under a shell or as a stand alone piece, pick your conditions and this jacket excels everywhere: Spring bluebird days in the Rockies, summer ascents on Rainier, or just knocking back a couple beers after a day on the rocks, this garment is always on my back or in my pack.

Purchaser Nice lightweight coat. Approprite sixe for what I ordered. March 22, 2013
A versatile workhorse The previous reviewers have this jacket called right- it is a workhorse and it is an essential companion on all cool to cold weather activities. I have used my Desna on late season backpacking trips and as an insulating layer under my old MHW Synchro jacket skiing. The thumb holes are super but what rocks this jacket is the hood. It fits when fully zipped like a balaclava. Whether under a ski helmet or under a climbing helmet, the fit is close but not snug and it articulates pretty well. So far the jacket has seen a fair amount of use but it shows no wear and tear. The Desna is going with me in June to Shasta and I expect to wear it under a shell on the ascent. I am just under 6' tall and 195 lbs and the fit of the large is spot on. This is a very versatile piece of gear and I hope you enjoy yours as I do mine. January 16, 2013
Very functional with the hood I bought this last year - and wear it all of the time because I love snug fit and hood. It is awesome skiing - the snug fitting hood provides great neck protection and extra warmth under my Giro Seam helmet. When hood not required, with the zipper up all the way its a great neck gaitor.
