Men's Hyaction™ Jacket 4 5 2 2
Light and Desert Dry. Great fit. feels slightly more athletic in fit than the fully featured shells, and feels a little longer at the hem. The Zipper has a nice burly feel to it. This Hybrid really does keep you desert dry on the inside and it surpassed my expectations for breathability. 3L Dry Q Elite over the shoulders, arms and hood does increases durability for use with a pack and protection from nasty weather. The 15D Dry Q Evap fabric doesn't like sharp objects or abraison very much, so it needs to be treated a little more delicately if you are using this in rugged terrain or as an Alpine jacket. It makes an excellent higher end jacket for hiking or trekking with an exceptionally low weight. For predominately Alpine use I'd probably look at the Quasar Jacket for full 3L protection.

Tank Shell I was trying to decide between the Hyaction and the Chinley jacket. I chose the Hyaction because I was interested in the combination of Dry Q Elite and Dry Q EVAP. Having worn the jacket through several rain storms and as a ski shell I am impressed at the level of breath-ability it offers as well as comfort. the two pockets are much bigger than I thought (covering from the waist up to the chest, great for wet gloves). A little worried about the stretch wrist bands instead of Velcro, only because the arms are much longer then I was expecting. Also beware of watches and other bracelets with the bands, can make taking the jacket off a little more challenging. Everything else is perfect; adjust easily and quickly. Amazing waterproofing, after standing under a shower faucet everything still remained dry. I switched off of the Patagonia Torrentshell I am already more impressed with the Mountain Hardwear Hyaction jacket. The lack of pit-zips are easily justified by the light weight design and superb breath-ability offered by the Dry Q EVAP. The Jacket also compresses nicely for easy/quick storage.Works very well with another layer underneath for insulation. I am extremely satisfied and recommend this jacket to anyone looking for a great all-around hiking shell. March 31, 2014
