2018 Mountain Hardwear Stretch Ozonic jacket Review by A Better Ski

This is the Mountain Hardwear Stretch Ozonic jacket.  This is a hooded shell that provides breathable waterproofing and protection from the the wind and sun.  Lightweight and pack-able, this jacket is a great choice for those wet and windy days or protection from the elements in the back country.

Tester: Dan

Size: L

Waterproofing and Breath-ability: Dry.Q™ Active waterproof technology offers the dryness of a rain jacket with the movement and moisture management of a running top.  I haven’t had the opportunity to bring this one out in a total rain storm yet.  The internet has mixed reviews about the performance of this jacket under these conditions.  As far as snow is concerned, there is plenty of waterproofing to keep you dry on a snowy day.

Warmth:  The Mountain Hardwear Stretch Ozonic jacket is just a shell there to protect you from water and wind.  I really like to wear shells as they are versatile for a multitude of conditions but protects from over-heating.

Fit:  The Mountain Hardwear Stretch Ozonic jacket has a clean, athletic fit with good length in the body and arms.  True to it’s name, this jacket has a nice soft elastic feel to it.  I loved the way it felt and moved with my body with the elastic stretch..

Features: Dry.Q™ Active waterproof technology banishes moisture; 4-way, all-over stretch fabrication; 40D face fabric is tough, durable, and abrasion-resistant; Large under arm vents, Hood cinch system; Exposed matte vislon Aquaguard zipper; Packable into zip chest pocket

Bottom Line:  The Mountain Hardwear Stretch Ozonic jacket is a simple and well crafted shell that moves and feels great.  I love to wear a base-layer, a mid-layer and a shell (and a cool t-shirt) and this shell by Mountain Hardwear is one I would love to have hanging in my closet.
