Body Fit - A body-hugging fit for aerobic activities. Ideal for running, skate skiing and next-to-skin layering.

Active Fit - A trim fit, and just loose enough for layering and freedom of movement. Ideal for backcountry skiing, climbing, mountaineering, running, and training.

Standard Fit - A happy medium fit that is not too tight, and not too loose. Standard fitting apparel will fit over base and mid-layers without restricting movement. Ideal for backpacking, hiking, travel, work, and casual wear.

Relaxed Fit - A roomier and more progressive fit, Mountain Hardwear relaxed styles might have a longer length than a standard fit, and a softer drape. Ideal for backpacking, hiking, skiing, and good old fashioned hanging out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hardshell protection without the hardshell noise I bought this jacket mainly to use in the summers for work and I must say I am impressed. While my co-workers are wearing heavy PVC raingear I am comfortably wearing this lightweight shell with just as much protection. I went on a 45 minute boat ride in the rain and came out dry. The only cons that I have found is that the hood is excessively large even with a helmet and that the zippers take a long time to break in. I bought a small and it fits good by itself or with a down jacket underneath. I am 5'7, 150 pounds with a wrestler build. This jacket was on the tighter side of mountain hardwear small sized jackets.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This is a poorly designed jacket I am a fan of Mountain Hardwear, but this is a poorly designed jacket. Mountain Hardwear calls it "ideal for any climb". It should say "ideal for any climb that you dont lift your arms." When you do lif your arms in this jacket, it rides up, a lot. I am 6'1" 195 lbs and when I raise my arms above my head in my size Large, it rides up at least 6". The hem comes up to at least my belly button. While this jacket feels solid, has nice features, looks good, and seems to be well built, its terrible cut makes all of that pointless. Dont but this jacket if you lift arms higher that shoulder height and want to stay dry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mountain Hardware Kepler I'm giving it four stars because the fabric is savvy and this things totally feels bombproof. Serious zippers. Serious fabric.,,,,Unfortunately, compared to other MH jackets (I most recently purchased the Cutaway), this is kinda snug. I know they say softshell, but it's definitely different, with much less stretch. It's also cut kinda close in the armpits and sleeves. I'm 5'7 140, and got the medium, but this thing seriously pulls at my armpits and elbows when I move around. The sleeves are also shorter than the other comparable softshells I've tried (MH, Stoic, EMS, Arcteryx). And there's crinkle. I definitely feel crinkle. Not awful, but this is definitely more firm-shell than soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great jacket I was really suprised by this jacket. I live in Hawaii and it breathes so well i can actually wear it for short sudden rainstorms it breathes so well. I climbed Aconcagua in it last winter and it seems to breathe so well that you lose more heat than you would another tech shell. I also climbed a lot of vertical rock in it in lower patagonia and RMNP this year and it has held up to a lot of abuse. I have surfers shoulders and it has never been too constricting on a climb either. If its pouring buckets you're probably going to get wet unless you treated it this morning, but I think all jackets are like that really. bottom line when things get nasty you wont be worrying about your outerwear

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Jacket, but the hood is weird. First off, I like the jacket overall, but it has some issues. ,,First off - It's not really a soft shell. It's a shell. ,,It fits a little on the small side. I sized up and it fits well most places, but a little big in the mid section (good for layering though - think shell).,,The hood is absolutely huge. It fits really nicely with a helmet on, but almost not at all without. (you can cinch it down with the pull cords, but then it's kind of funny fitting.),,The collar is also very tight fitting around the neck (can't zip it up with a neck warmer) and does not come up very far (so you can't hide your face from the wind in there).,,So - if you plan to use this with a helmet all the time (climbing in the rain??), I think you will like the fit.... otherwise make sure you try one on first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good jacket My height is 5.77 feet, weight 176 pounds, Kepler bought this jacket, M number. This jacket is very sophisticated workmanship, fabric is a combination of two different sleeves and body parts of the fabric, the arm is stretched. There are clothes with fine fabrics like velvet, warm and well worn, warm wind and rain jacket, I really like - See more at:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Jacket Ever I've had this jacket for about a year now and it's wonderful! I live in Vancouver, BC, where it's fairly mild but rains a lot. I wear this jacket almost everyday, and it's taken a beating and still keeps the rain and wind out! I have average length arms, so the cuffs work pretty well and keeps the wind and rain out and keeps my hands warm.,,,, I've had other Gore-Tex jackets before but they can't compare to this jacket. It's my favourite jacket!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the money I got a Medium, I'm 5'10" 175lbs and it fits great, except the elbows. Tested it out in both the wind and rain and it has kept me both dry and warm (I was wearing a t-shirt under it on a 32 degree windy day) it has done all it advertised. I am very happy with my purchase, my one complaint is the pit zips, I wish it was more like Arc'teryx where you can zip up and down with one hand.
