      Comments about Mountain Hardwear Nitrous Hooded Jacket - Men's:

      First, my personal opinion it that mountain hardwear's jackets aren't the best fit if you're tall and thin. On the other hand, this jacket has a great fit and length with enough room to layer.

      Comments about Mountain Hardwear Nitrous Hooded Jacket - Men's:

      I have only had this jacket for about 3 weeks so take this with a grain of salt. I had bought it to be a lightweight jacket for belaying, backpacking and just wearing around town. My initial impressions thus far are favorable. As far as the fit is concerned I'm pleased, I wish the arms were a little longer but they're true to size (I'm about 6'5" and 185lbs, very slender with a big wingspan). I have room to layer underneath which is nice and the hood is very warm. If it's warmer than about 50 degrees I can't wear it because I'll overheat just sitting still unless there's some wind to cut through. The only time I've been able to wear it doing anything very active was biking to class when it's around freezing or very windy. It's been pretty effective as a belay jacket, for cold mornings biking to class or scraping windshields, before and after skiing when you have to be out in the cold packing gear up (it's too hot to actually ski in for me), and for just tooling around town. I don't know how it does layering yet because it hasn't been cold enough for me to have to even put a shell over the top.

      My only major complaint is that it doesn't have a stuff-sack or a pocket to stuff it into. I've been able to keep it semi-stuffed into the hood and then in a backpack but it would really be nice if it had a stuffable pocket on it for packing. It's just polyester and down so obviously not waterproof or windproof but toss a shell over the top and you're good to go. I can't say anything about durability since I haven't had it long enough but it seems sturdy enough for being as light as it is.

        This was my summit jacket last year on Denai with only two layers under it. I have a Peak 15 jacket in my pack but never pulled it out. I use this a lot in cold weather and love how durable it is. Great jacket!!

          I bought this to replace an old puffy jacket that has just seen better days. I love it...it's lightweight, low profile, but plenty warm. It's not super puffy so it won't make you look like the Michelin Man and I've even layered it under my shell on colder days. I don't use the hood much, but it did come in handy on a windy day that was making my ears feel like they were frost bitten.

          Comments about Mountain Hardwear Nitrous Hooded Jacket - Men's:

          I got this jacket to use as my main mid layer for winter. I would be using it in snow travel/sports, rock climbing and poor weather conditions.

          Things that I liked about it:
          - The fit is spot on. I am 5'11, 180Lbs and I got a large. The length, width and sleeves length is just perfect. It is perfect for climbing and for wearing it under my main shell.
          - It is not bulky and it compresses into a small ball which quickly fluffs back out without permanent wrinkles.
          - Certainly water resistant. I've put it under the hose for minutes at a time to see how it fairs and it does a good job so the DWR certainly helps although I would not obviously wear it under constant rain, that is what a shell is for.
          - You can stuff it into its own pocket, that is certainly convenient.
          - Once you zip it up you can certainly start to get warm rather quickly. It does really good in light winds but for some reason I suspect that if you use it in moderate to high winds it may not be as sturdy. Again, I suppose that is what a shell is for.

          Things I don't like:
          - Hood is not helmet compatible or adjustable.
          - The old model (from 2010) had a breast pocket, the new model does not.
          - The jacket could also use some sort of mesh pocket inside.
          - I got this jacket about 6 months ago and although it never really shed a lot of plumage from the down as other jackets do, I do find feathers on my shirt or on the jacket itself every time I wear it which concerns me that at one point or another it may start to lose its insulation.
          - I have no basis for saying this but it 'SEEMS' that it is not that durable. The jacket has not ripped or come loose at the seams but when I feel the material with my it just does not seem like it would really stand to normal wear and tear. But again I have only had the jacket 6 months and any time that I have taken it to the backcountry it has been with a tough shell over it.

          Please take into account that this review is based on the fact that the jacket is posted for over $200+ here. I would expect a jacket worth that much to address some of the major concerns I've explained, particularly the one about durability.

          I am happy for how much I paid for the jacket (got it on sale) but next time I will be more cautious about what I am looking for.
