Mountain Hardwear Hooded Compressor Jacket - Men's: The Compressor Hooded Jacket is a warm, sport-friendly insulation piece that sets a whole new standard. It combines a variable insulation: 100 grams of lightweight Thermic Micro™ synthetic insulation in the body and 80 grams in the sleeves which provides mobility for mountaineering without the sacrifice of warmth.
The Mountain Hardwear Compressor Hooded Insulated Jacket uses down-like synthetic fibers to hold in heat even if it gets wet so your mid-winter tour in the Cascades won't leave you freezing. Waterproof Thermal.Q Elite insulation retains 20% more warmth than standard synthetic insulation by combining thicker, stiffer fibers to create a three-dimensional matrix which is then filled by smaller insulating fibers, much like actual down. Plus, this jacket places more insulation around your torso where you need it and less insulation around your arms to give you room to move.
Butter jersey cuffs comfortably seal out cold air, while dual hem drawcords create a custom fit and prevent cold air from blowing up your jacket. Front hand-warmer pockets and an internal security pocket hold your essentials. The fully insulated hood protects your head from the cold.
Grab this classic for alpine and mixed-route climbing. The 2012 Mountain Hardwear Hooded Compressor Jacket offers superb warmth in very cold conditions without extra bulk or weight.

I live in Minnesota, so the need for a versatile jacket is critical. This jacket has met and surpassed any expectations I ever had on it! I originally got the jacket after doing a bunch or research and reading reviews. I then found out that NOLS uses the jacket for their courses. If it's good enough for NOLS and their rigorous, courses, then it's the jacket for me!
I got it over a month ago, and it has probably seen 3 of Minnesota's 4 seasons already! It's withstood rain, sleet, heavy snow, and sub zero (-7) temperatures with below zero wind chills. It has proven to be waterproof thus far, but obviously a shell is recommended for fabric protection.
I have worn it outside in -12 to shovel with just a t-shirt underneath and been plenty warm enough. I have even started walking to work every day so that I can really test the jacket and its limits. I am excited to use it backpacking.
It has an amazing sleek design that while sporty, is also casual. It also isn't as loose as my other Mountain Hardwear puffy jacket, so there is no wind constantly blowing through or up it; creating a wind-tunnel effect. Plus it has a drawcord waist to prevent that anyways. It is also very lightweight, so great for those that ounce count. My favorite features are the jersey cuffs on the sleeves and its durability. It also has a number of well placed pockets, including a nice internal pocket.
If I had to be critical of this amazing jacket it would be that the sleeves are a touch long, and that the hood is a bit tall also, but in the jackets defense, I do believe the hood is built for the individual wearing it to use it for ice climbing and therefore a helmet would fit underneath it. I have yet to try that, but will soon. In regards to the sleeves, I am a 5'7, and 160lb female with broad shoulders, that gets men's jackets due to her athletic build/cut. Probably why the sleeves are longer for me.
