Mountain Hardwear Gravitor Jacket Review:

Reviews:

There have been three different versions of this jacket over the past few years. A couple years ago, the laminate was Conduit, and it was apparently not very breathable, based on what I've read. Last year's version, with the Dry Q Elite shell, does not have a flap over the zipper. That is the one I have. My version in size medium weighs 1 pound 6 ounces on my scale, making it significantly lighter than the specs listed here for this year's model. My best guess is that Mountain Hardwear decided that the version from last year was awesome, so they redesigned it just a bit, named it the Carillion, and put a big price tag on it ($400). The Carillion's stated weight is the same as my Gravitor from last year. The Carillion has a different face fabric, but the same weight Thermic Micro (80g) and the same Dry Q Elite laminate. Then they made a cheaper, heavier Dry Q Elite insulated shell and put the Gravitor name on it. Just guessing, of course.
