The American Mountain Co Men’s No. 907 High-Altitude Hardshell Jacket is a waterproof hardshell for high-altitude expeditions. The No. 907 is made in the USA with Schoeller® c-change® fabric for waterproof, windproof protection from the harshest rain, snow, and wind the weather can throw at you while on the mountain. A NanoSphere stain resistant durable water repellent finish increases protection by repelling moisture from the fabric surface. The jacket has a soft touch with two-way stretch so you can move easily, without making a noisy racket. For whenever you feel the need to sneak through the mountains. The helmet-compatible hood is adjustable and has a visor to shield your eyes from the driving rain and a Hightop™ collar allows you to tuck your chin in from the winds. The elbows and shoulders are reinforced so you can take on the elements without worry. While you're on a break, slip your hands into the side-entry of the front pockets for warmth, while your snacks remain in the front section, under the snap-closure flap.

Old SchoolThis jacket should have a lot going for it: It is proudly made in the U.S. and features a very high quality Schoeller C fabric. However, if I say the design is ideosyncratic I am being kind. Perhaps for people who haven't experienced old-style hardshells from 20 years ago there might be a novelty appeal, but it's simply heavy and clunky. Style, seam sealing, and all the attendant improvements in hardshells make it comparable to a Soviet-era Lada, when compared to an Arcteryx-like Honda civic. I really wanted to like it and hope the company survives to improve.

yup.This jacket is my new favorite article of clothing. C-Change is the best fabric ever made for outerwear. I can wear this comfortably while braving the treacherous halls of the taupest, troglodyte filled mall in existence due to its ability to change to the heat of environment as well as coming internally from my body as o strain to not lose my temper with the poorly parented teen covered in pungently awful hollister cologne that just ran into me because he had his head down texting his vapid girlfriend about the recent gossip girl episode. It also is a unmatched technical shell on the slopes of my favorite MT ski hill or the windswept -35 degree ND plain. The fabric stiffens up and cuts the wind and cold better than any Gore hard shell. Layer it with AMCs soft shell or your favorite fleece or down layer, and you are ready to trek to the South Pole, or worse, trek out to shovel out my girlfriends cat in the midst of a Fargo Blizzard ( or what I like to refer to as 'any weekday in winter').
The pockets are very useful. Large enough to fit food, cell phones (old school 80s brick ones even), gloves, hats, weapons, ammo, or anything you may need for your next yeti hunt.
And lastly, this jacket is timelessly styled so that it will always look sleek and svelt no matter what fashion fad dates to afflict the masses of the unaware. Ballpark, this makes the average man look 2 points sexier. The ugly man 4 points hotter. And the pretty man...well screw him he doesn't need the help and he dang sure better stay away from my girlfriend.
Unless of course he wants to shovel her car out. Then I have a jacket for him to use!
