It happened again: Mother Nature unleashed a furious and soggy pile of precipitation, right on top of you. However, as your Ma would've said, turn that frumpy frown into a soggy smile with Mountain Hardwear's Thermostatic Insulated Jacket. This covertly technical coat is crafted with a synthetic insulation that keeps you warm, even when wet. Because, we've all been there at one point you head out the door for a sunrise jaunt up Smugglers Notch and find a luscious, cloudless sunrise only to have the weather turn into a pitiless, aqueous beast two hours into your adventure. Consider this jacket the antithesis to potential precipitation. Equipped with the down mimicking synthetic technology Thermal. Q Elite, it maintains loft while harnessing heat and transporting moisture without the excessive bulkiness often found in comparable synthetic jackets. This year's edition has a zippered chest pocket that's pack compatible and doubles as a stuff sack, perfect for clipping to your harness or throwing in your pack as a, just in case.
