Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great shell I got this product because my other MH shell was too fit to wear a polar layer under. The bigger size is just perfect for this. This super light fabric deliver waterproof and breathability more than goretex I was surprise to see how you don't sweat as much as under other rainwear. June 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pockets are too high See my review of the Ghost Whisperer. I bought both the Torsun and Ghost Whisperer in XL because even though I am only 5 3 1/2" tall, I have a big chest. The pockets on both jackets are higher than any pockets on any other jacket I've ever owned. Apparently, placing the pockets high is Mountain Hardwear's norm. Well, if you are big-chested, it is extremely unflattering. Not only do the zipper toggles look like they are hanging from your boobs when the pockets are zipped, but anything you store in the pockets, like thin gloves or a beanie, creates a bulge just below your boobs. If the pockets were lower like every other jacket I've ever owned, the hat/glove bulge would be closer to your waist and not as unflattering. The second thing is the jackets are a little tighter than I'd like across my admittedly big chest. With a thin Icebreaker base layer, I can just zip the Ghost Whisperer, and then just zip the Torsun on over it. But if I had a thicker base layer, it would be too tight. January 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Walking in the Rain A long walk in the pouring rain justified the expense of this jacket. I was dry, warm and once I adjusted the hood, I was totally protected from the elements. Living in Oregon and trying to exercise in the winter can be difficult, but now I can go outside and walk/jog knowing I will be dry. The jacket is a little stiff, but I think it will relax as I wear it more. I am a happy gal! December 15, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Functional Jacket I needed a rain-proof shell. This is it. Pros: high quality fabric, taped zippers, AWESOME hood (seriously this is the best hood I've ever had the pleasure of wearing. Cons: pockets are breast height, and I constantly find myself trying to put my hands in my pockets when I'm walking down the street. The main zipper is hard to get started, but not impossible. This is *NOT* an insulated jacket at all. It will NOT keep you warm. You WILL need an insulating layer if you intend to be warm AND dry. Pro/Con: There aren't pit zips. This isn't really a deal breaker for me, per se. The breast pockets are lined in mesh, so you can open them and voila - vents. The problem with that is if you've actually got something in your pockets and nowhere else to stow. The fabric is breathable enough that I didn't feel like I was wearing a trashbag. But seriously, the hood. It's got an intuitive system for adjusting the fit. I have never had such a great fitting hood on a jacket before. December 1, 2014
