Ordered a Medium 96cm Regular length. I am 177cm, 92 cm chest and it is a perfect fit. Managed to order it when the sale was on and got it for $75. It looks like it was never used. I have had some decent mountaineering gear in the past and currently have a Gore-tex jacket, but this MVP jacket puts it to shame. To buy similar quality/functionality from Mont/North Face/Rab etc it would cost at least $600.
Quality of the item is awesome. Zipper is good quality, and the material is surprisingly lightweight but seems to be quite durable. Hood stows away nicely and when matched with a brimmed cap, will keep me dry. Reckon this will serve me well hunting and hiking for many years to come. Delivery was quick too!
O for awesome
A great outdoor jacket for rain protection. Every aspect of this jacket has been considered from a practical standpoint. Highly functional, light weight, and packs small. Great choice of fabric making a hard wearing garment that will serve well, time, and again!
Had to replace modern gortex jacket because the seam sealing was failing, so got one of these. Excellent fit, has two pockets but no fancy features, is in new condition, and works well. Very waterproof first time in rain, packs down small, and is a good length so can sit down and glass for game. Here in two days so very happy with the prompt service. Good all round!
