FEATURES of the Mountain Hardwear Men's Mountain Tech Vest
Combination of AirShield Elite fleece and Deflection Softshell for wind protection and breathability
"Looks like a great vest, but REALLY short"
... and I don't just mean the arms (OK, they have no arms). I'm kind of tall (6'4") and I wouldn't really recommend for anybody over about 6' tall. It's really, really short - barely reaches my waist (I just got the Large, but have to return it).I'm disappointed, because it looks like a good vest otherwise.
My trusty MH Tech vest has been worn in all kinds of places - from technical climbs to wingman duty in downtown bars. It looks good and always does its job- keeps the core warm, like a good vest should, without adding bulk. Has a good balance of windproofness and breathability. Layers well. The Fit is athletic, so if you have a tummy it's not superb, but if you don't, it is.
I've had a tough time finding vests that are both functional and look good, so I was quite thrilled when I came across this one. First, it does its job and is quite warm. With regard to fit, it fits true to form. With regard to look, it can be used in most situations, be it at an office or quite literally when out camping.The only negative I have found is that the fleece attracts a decent amount of lint and detritus. This isn't necessarily bad unless you are OCD and hate having to brush whatever off every hour.
