The M7 Jacket is a top-of-the-line outerwear piece for late-season hunts. The fleece backer gives it the added insulation needed when the temperatures drop and the 100% windproof and waterproof HydraSheild SS textile will protect you from any late-season elements.
Proven in the mountains, HydraShield technology excels in the most unfavorable weather conditions. Waterproof, windproof and breathable, HydraShield textiles are profoundly durable while also remaining lightweight and packable.
HydraShield technology prevents rain and snow from passing through to your body while transporting water vapors from sweat to the exterior of the textile during high exertion activities. This transfusion process ensures you stay warm and dry in all wet weather conditions.
Comfortable jacket. XL fit seems good, a touch big on me 6’ 215lbs, plenty of room for layers. Wore this jacket on several long walks in -40C and did really well. The fabric remained surprisingly quiet for being that cold.
The jacket seems very tough and well made. I was surprised at how little insulation the jacket offers as most soft shells are thicker. The sleeves are very long! I often have to deal with sleeves that are too short because I'm tall and narrow. I ordered a medium and I feel that the sleeves well exceed the 34/35 length.
This piece would be amazing for the intended purposes as it was very light weight, waterproof, breathable, along with having a bit of added fleece for insulation. I did have to send back the jacket as the arms were too long. My measurements are 6'0 200lbs 44.5" chest 34" waist, 36" arms. I ordered an XL as per size guide to ensure the arms are long enough for me. These seem to have an extra 1.5" of cuff added to them making the arm length 37.5" and completely unusable for me...which is too bad because they make amazing bags and frames and wanted to get into their apparel
My first impressions are I am extremely happy with this jacket, fit and comfort are excellent. It will be well and truly tested to its limits here in Scotland as I am wearing it for work in the forests.
