This is a great jacket for the price. Fantastic warmth to weight ratio. This jacket has gotten me through many cold Wisconsin winters. The only down side is that the outside material is not that durable, tore a hole in the arm on a tree. Other than that this jacket is awesome
Agree with other review. Cheap quality. Stitching started fraying early and the jacket has just a cheap thin layer that easily rips. I bump into a tree and tore a hole in it. Disappointed with this product.
I bought this jacket because of the red color and the inexpensive price tag. As soon as I unpacket the jakcet I sort of felt that it wasn't high quality. The stitches are not nice and the shoulder/arm/neck fabric has a very coarse feel to it. The jacket is not as warm as I was hoping for: I have a fibre insulated jacket - and I thought this jacket was a major step up insulation wise. It is not. I have now been wearing the jacket for approx 3 months and recently one of the INSIDE seams in the left arm has ruptured (approx 1 inch) and so I had downs everywhere when I took the jacket off.
This jacket is like that piece in your closet that wants to be your go to winter coat, but isn't quite there yet. Let's do a quick run down of what I felt were the ups, and the downs, of the new Hunker Down Jacket.To start I loved the fit. At 5'9, and 140lbs, I am not the biggest guy but I have longer arms and find while most smalls fit in the body sleeves are short. This was not the case with the Hunker Down. The sleeves extended just slightly past my wrist, and the adjustable cuffs kept them from sliding up and down during use. In addition to this the feel of the coat was nice, sitting right at my belt line, and close to the body, but in a non restrictive manner.

Jacket is awesome quality and very warm, as to be expected with a down jacket. I picked this jacket over the NF jackets for one main reason...ATTENTION TO DETAIL! At this price point I could not find a NF jacket that even came close. The velcro cuffs for sinching down to avoid drafts and micro-fleece lining around the collar were huge comfort issues for me. NF jackets only had the elastic cuffs, which will loosen over time and no liner in the collar. The exterior chest pocket is one of my favorites as well, so I'm partial to MH.
I always hesitate to choose Mountain hardwear hunker down jacket or the north face nuptse2 down jacket,I'm glad I chose the Hunker,I was a thin man,5'11 150lbs,I chose the medium,Length right,But a little loose.If I choose to small, length should be short,Is a very worth buying down jacket.
The jacket is very warm and soft. I use it on hikes in the cold weather and then as a pillow in my sleeping bag. Great jacket and is great to wear around town. I like this jacket better than most puffy style jacket because the outside material seems to be tougher than the other brands. I feel like I am going to rip the other jackets because the material is almost too soft.
Being new to Northeast winters I knew I needed to get a warm everyday jacket and wanted to stick with MH as they have always done right in my eyes. I received this jacket and took it outside in December and wasn't very comfortable as far as warmth goes. My problem is that the jacket is too short, barely making it past my belt. So anytime I bend over or reach for something I get a shot of cold air on my lower back. I am 6'2" and ordered a large, so it could just be that it is the wrong jacket for my body type. Guess that is one of the downfalls of ordering online. Bottom line, I will be returning this jacket as I found a Marmot jacket that is a better fit.
