Men's Dragon™ Hooded Softshell Jacket is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice fit plenty of extras Received it in no time flat from MH.com. Was so eager to try it out but found out that the jacket was a bit too large in a M since I usually wear that for other jackets. Had to order a small to get the right fit. If you are portly, then order the size up, but if you are the athletic type, you will be ok with 1 size down. Material is soft on the side and out, and keeps the wind to a minimum. There are tons of pockets on this jacket, so there's always a place to stash your items. Thought I don't intend to bring this on alpine treks, I feel very comfortable wearing this in the urban jungle though since you can stuff your iphone and other knick-knacks here and there. Overall, I think this jacket will hold up. There are cinch ties on the bottom of the jacket to keep wind out. There are straps with velcro to keep the wind out from the sleeves.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 1st Mountain Hardwear gear First piece of Mountain Hardwear gear I have purchased. So far so good, its a lightweight soft-shell that's breathable. On colder days you will want a decent base layer especially if there is wind. Hood is really adjustable so it fits the melon without a helmet. Sleeves are a little long but that will be okay if your on a bike. Sleeves do cling to other fabrics and make your shirt sleeves crawl up your arm. Plenty of pockets which is nice. Yet to be tested in rain or snow storm. Overall a good jacket if your moving to stay warm. Durability yet to be determined.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Jacket This is a great soft shell jacket. Exactly what I was looking for!! It fits great with just enough room for layering. Great at keeping the wind out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second Dragon For the last 7-8 years, I've been using/abusing a Dragon jacket on my outings and during my day to day. The Jacket finally and reluctantly gave up the ghost, and so I replaced it with this updated version. I read the reviews here about large sizing and long arms, but I've found both to be entirely reasonable. This version is not as slim as my older Dragon, but the fit remains "athletic," and the arm length is as it was previously. Whether climbing, biking, hiking, etc., I don't want the sleeves to creep up when reaching, and these are long enough to provide that flexibility, but not so long that they get in the way. I'm 6 ft. tall, ~190 lbs., and the Large fits well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from POCKETS and keeps the rain off I have had my previous Mtn HW jacket for 7 years now and always wanted more pockets and especially a larger breast pocket. The dragon did it and is a nice upgrade. The hood could lay flatter when down but the upside is lots of structure when hooded. Recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fit and finish Using mostly for bike riding in autumn and winter. Possibly skiing. Have the Dragon coat and Pant. Both fit me well, feel comfortable, like the material and color. Have yet to have bad enough weather to truly test, but Im not worried. MH equip rarely let's me down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Jacket Great looking, athletic cut jacket. I'm 5'11", 185. With all the gripes about sleeve length I've read, I have to disagree. They are long, but I like my sleeves to cover my wrists completely, especially with a pack on. I'm usually between a medium and large, I know a large feels like a poncho, it's huge on me! I bought the medium, and with a 43" chest it's a bit snug, but everywhere else it's perfect. Nice high collar, big adjustable helmet compatible hood, generous (but not silly) length, and yes - nice long sleeves. This will be my go to cool weather hike/MTB jacket. Perhaps an inch or two more in the chest would be nice(for product development teams consideration) for layering, or you know...pecs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fit was large, so I can't use it Looks and feels like exactly what I wanted, except... the fit's huge. "Small" is roughly a normal medium. I'd never be able to layer it under my hardshell, if/when that drizzle turns to downpour. If anything, I could layer this softshell OVER my hardshell, quite nicely... Wouldn't be an issue, if this softshell was available in XS (ie, a normal small). I would have just exchanged it. But it's not, so I had to return it. What makes it frustrating, is that said hardshell is also by Mountain Hardware (plasmic ion). Really wish you guys would get your sizing sorted out. I generally love your kit, but this isn't the first time I've had "small" in one item, be closer to "medium" in a different item. Otherwise... well, it did seem like a quality bit of gear, nothing wrong with it quality-wise. Just built a bit too baggy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right fit 4 tall guy with large shoulders I'm 6'2", 225lb (44 Long). I wasn't planning on buying that jacket, but the fit was so great. I have trouble with the sleeves that are ALWAYS too short and shoulders to tight. Have to go with XXLong and they are rare. But with this XL (regular), the fit is awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dragon Hooded Jacket. Awesome jacket. It does what it was made to do, works flawlessly. It is replacing a M H softshell that is about 15 years old. Great Job M H.
