Reviews - Mountain Hardwear Men's Chillwave Down Parka
Purchased for my son. He usually takes a Medium in Mountain Hardwear, and this jacket (Medium) fit him well. He is 5'10" with a slight build. He is very particular about how clothes "feel" to him-ie-seams rubbing against him are irritating. He finds this jacket to be extremely comfortable. He has worn it to walk around campus and has been warm and toasty. Purchased it in black as the other colors were too bright for his style.
very nice, warm, comfy jacket. i live in taos, nm. gets cold here. i am 5'5" woman. i ordered woman's mountain hardware down jacket with hood first. it was wimpy. flimsy plastic zipper, cuffs with no adjustment, just elastic, few pockets. stylish, but not useful for my ultra cold winter needs here. i looked at men's MH down jackets with hoods. they looked substantial and warm. so i ordered a small in men's size. it is perfect. little large, which is perfect for layering and roomy to move around in. the collar is super great. comes way up to my ears and the hood is good size and fits well. can be snugged down to keep cold air out. lots of good pockets. heavy duty zipper. i love the jacket! glad i crossed genders in the jacket world!
I got this jacket over the North Face ones due to the good reviews. I have not had EXTENSIVE time to test out the jacket but it is definitely comfortable, well-made, and warm as heck. I cannot attest to the waterproofing or the water-resistance yet but it will definitely do the job in terms of keeping you warm and safe from the wind. It is not the most expensive jacket but it is a good quality, especially for the price. I recommend it for anyone who wandered around looking at so many different jackets like I did without being able to make up their mind. If you have an opportunity, try and go into a local store for fitting. If you cannot, I would probably go with the larger of the two sizes that might fit, just because you will most likely be layering and, even if not, bigger doesn't hurt as much as smaller does. **Will report more on rain after more severe testing
