Here in Texas we rarely have very cold weather but often it's a little too cold for just a long sleeve shirt but warm enough that you quickly want to shed a jacket. I'm not really a vest guy but it seemed like a good solution. I looked all over for a simple, well-made black vest. Good luck with that- all I could find were cheap department store fleece or some North Face stuff that didn't do anything for me. So I took a gamble on this Mountain Hardwear vest and I'm really happy I did.
Construction is top-notch, it's thin and light but not flimsy. It's warm and looks sharp. I am 5'9", 170# and the large works great. It's maybe just a little bit big but I'd rather have that than a smedium that looks like a sausage casing. (guys in my height/weight range know we are in size hell...medium is too small and large is too big). But the large is great, absolutely no complaints.
Time will tell but I look forward to many years with this piece. Pricey? Yes, but I'd rather...
I've owned the original version of the Mountain Hardwear Windstopper vest for almost a decade, and it was one of my favorite pieces. Unfortunately it disappeared recently and I've had to find a replacement. Thankfully the new Tech II is a worthy replacement. This vest is perfect for cool weather and really cuts the wind well. Since there's no bulk or thickness, it can also be used to layer under a shell. The XL fits the me well, more of a comfortable cut, as opposed to a highly fitted, skinny cut. Three great pockets, which is always a plus. The two side pockets are placed slightly above the hips, but certainly still easy to reach. Looks great.
A fleece vest is not just a good garment to wear on a chilly day, it is a requirement of the State of Oregon to wear one, and wear it proudly. Columbia Sportswear is the parent company of Mountain Hardware and is headquartered here in Portland, so one could do a lot worse than wear this vest on the local streets. Good fit, nice color, and not too bulky -- I heartily endorse this product.
