Men's Torsun™ Jacket 4.6 5 5 5
Excellent Shell Fit: I bought this jacket in Large, and I am 6'3" 155 lbs with a large wingspan. This is the only jacket I have ever owned that has sleeves that are long enough for my lanky body and don't pull from my gloves when I reach for something. I had no problem wearing this over a base-layer, a T-shirt, and a fleece insulating layer. Freedom of movement was great, but then again I am a skinny tall guy. Weather Resistance: I climbed a 6,700 ft peak when the arctic air mass moved through the cascades. It was -10°F at the peak with 20MPH winds and I was fine with just the fleece underneath. I got a little sweaty when ascending but the vents were placed well, especially with my waist and sternum straps buckled up. This definitely breathes better than my Goretex jacket and I didn't clam up despite the perspiration. It was sunny and super cold, so I haven't wrung this through the wringer on waterproofness, but I did wreck on my snowboard on the ride down and never got wet. Insulation: This is a shell jacket. You need insulation if it's going to be cold. January 7, 2015
Great Active Jacket!! Got this jacket to back country ski in Vermont. Ordered size large in Azul blue. The jacket fits very well. The only note I will add is that it is snug through the shoulders and in the arm pits specifically. Of course, this facilitates more movement while wearing the jacket. the snug fit allows you to rotate your arms better. I layer it with the Toasty Tweed or the Micro Ratio depending on temps. Good long sleeves fit over my gloves perfectly. Full zip with a slightly longer collar eliminates my need for a buff or clava. Plenty of room in the hood for a helmet. The jacket does breathe quite well. Very well suited for back country skiing or snow shoeing/climb/hike. Really loving this very technical jacket. You will not be disappointed. January 6, 2015
The last jacket you will buy (if it fits) Breathes as expected, i used it biking at 45 degrees and raining and it functioned well even without pit zips. The pocket vents worked OK. Good windblock, well made and simple in the features. Lightweight. The hood is very comfortable and was my favorite part. Sleeves and closures are excellent and very comfortable. The orange is an incredibly ugly, but they were out of blue. Made me gag to put it on, and i had to hide it in the closet at night. But i didn't get it for the color... Loved everything about it except when it gets in the 30's, i tried to add a base layer but the medium was too tight just in the chest. The large is way too big. I'm 5'8, 170 lbs, 32 waist and 41 chest. If it fits, it will likely be your last jacket. Unfortunately not being able to comfortably layer is not an option and I had to return it. December 11, 2014
Best overall elements jacket I have had an earlier version (with pit vents) for about 10 yrs, and it has surpassed my wildest expectations! Blizzard - no problem, snowshoe climb- no problem, xski- no problem, noreaster- no problem! In fact I havent found weather it couldnt handle! And after 10 yrs, I am going to replace it w the same item, if I can ever get someone from mtn hardwaer to reply to my query: does it still come w pit cents? November 10, 2014
It's the pits... We really excited to get this jacket. The materials and workmanship were great. It felt awesome in the hand and the seams all looked great. The sealed zipper is a little stiff, but I imagine it would get better with use. The size Medium fit seemed pretty spot on (me: 5'10" 166lbs) given that I'd want to be able to layer with base- and mid-layers. However... as the title would indicate, the pits on this thing are tight! Even with just a base-layer I can feel the armhole snugged up into my pit. With a Thermostatic jacket on as well, it's just ridiculous. *sigh* November 10, 2014
