Currently owning two MH jackets I was stoked to see this jacket as I was tempted to buy the initial version of the downhill parka. Sadly, the zipper is so cheap I doubt it will last a month. For the price, this is not worth it. :-(
"Not the quality I have come to expect from Mountain Hardware :-("
I have a MH shell and a MH fleece both of which I love and have lasted for years. I was soo excited to see the downhill parka II as I really wanted the first version but was quickly disappointed when I pulled it out of the highly anticipated sticker covered moosejaw box. As other people have commented on other recent MH jackets, the zipper is a cheap plastic which doesn't seem like it will last a month. Plus, the zipper appears crooked when I have the coat on which would be fine when I'm speeding down a snow covered hill but not for casual wear. For the price, this is not worth it. :-(
