The toasty Mountain Hardwear Zonal jacket offers amazing warmth without the bulk of a traditional insulated jacket.


Mountain Hardware designed the Men's Zonal Jacket to move with you, not fight you as you try to move around. That's why it placed stretch panels strategically on the sides, so you can raise your arms without binding. It also installed a light layer of Thermic Micro synthetic insulation to take the edge off chilly days without overheating you.

Sierra Trading Post
Mountain Hardwear made the Zonal jacket with specially placed insulated panels and zoning construction to keep you warm where you need it most and to reduce overall bulk.

Positive Reviews:

So first off, I'm 5' 8" 180lbs fairly built with relatively wide shoulders. The medium though started off a little tight the shoulders after a few months have worked out and now fit wonderfully. I was looking for a insulated jacket that was functional with a quilted design that I could wear both around town (Boulder at least) and use outdoors. This is a solid choice. By itself I can wear it in 20-55 degree weather and be warm with just a t-shirt underneath. In addition it feels quite windproof and the fleece sides feel like they add a little more breathing to the coat. In colder sub 15 degree weather I usually layer a shell on top and that works quite nicely or if it's raining and sub 40degrees. The coldest I have used this is snow shoeing in the mountains (-15ish degrees) with a mild base layer, this as a midlayer and a shell. Between snow sneaking up underneath my jacket and sweat the shell did get fairly wet, but I still felt extremely warm (the beauty of synthetic insulation). My only caveat is I kinda wish it had a hood. However, I did get this jacket on sale for about 80$ and its functionality and warmth for the price it's a solid jacket. Overall, on a budget its a solid buy though honestly if I had the money I would got for patagonia nano puff hoody (mainly for the hood, and I'm stuck on synthetics at least until down can cope with water better). However, f you don't mind not having a hood it's a great looking functional jacket.

Better than expected

I took a chance on this jacket despite the reviews, since it was an REI Outlet Deal of the Day. Overall, I'm very pleased with it - I like the shine (gives it a subtle distinctiveness compared to all the other quilted-looking jackets out there), it fits well (guess I don't have overly long arms), and the pockets have a nice, toasty lining.

My only complaint is with the stretchy material on the side panels and back. While it gives the jacket some additional flexibility (a plus), after a few weeks it already feels like it's going to be stretched out of shape and a little bit baggy. Time will tell, and so in the meantime I'm going to enjoy wearing it!

Negative Reviews:

everything good except the fitting

Tried it out kept me really warm for the weight of this jacket. It's very light, looks good, but he fitting is just a medium at first, which gave me nice fit looks, but eh sleeve was a little too short and you can tell when you lift your arms and the bottom is a little too high as well. exchanged to a large which made me look like I was wearing my big brother's jacket. Even though I got it at a great price during the deal of the should look weird wearing it because it was too small or large. I'm 5'9" 155lbs...if you were shorter than me than the medium would be good or if you're a littler taller than large would be good.

Great fit, weight, color. The real problem is the material under the arms stinks after one use.... I loved this jacket both under hard shell for skiing and on its own for snowshoeing, banging around etc.... The bad news is that after one activity it smells like old school poly pro that you have had for years, Didn't want to, but had to return it.

Not true to size

Purchased online. I was looking for a lightweight minimalist puffy. I have other mtn hardware gear and more outdoor jackets than I need, but the size L fit short in the sleeves and torso. I didn't like the shiny black material, I would like an internal zip pocket, less bulk, better compressibility. I liked the concept of the fleece in hot zones, but didn't get how that helped in the bottom back panel - I think it hinders the compression and adds little value.

I purchased one for my wife and she loves hers. And it addresses the issues above. The panels are different, it's less bulky/lighter, zip pocket, etc.

I would only recommend at a discount, not the full retail price.
