The Mountain Hardwear Sub Zero Jacket is a 650-fill down coat without a hood. Complete with stuff sack for easy transport, this down jacket is breathable, water-resistant and wind-resistant. It has a drawcord at the hem to keep the jacket tight to the body during windy conditions and velcro closures at the cuffs to minimize the gap between your gloves and the sleeve of the coat. The pockets are fleece-lined and there is an inside zippered pocket for storing items like car keys.
The Sub Zero Jacket is a great piece to pack for a multi-day backpacking or mountaineering trip when you are not sure if you will need a down coat, due to its light weight and compressed size in the stuff sack. It is also quite warm and the lining makes it easy to slide over other layers.
The Sub Zero Jacket is known to have a short torso length and short sleeves. Those who are taller or with longer limbs may find the fit challenging and may want to order a size up for some extra length.
The Mountain Hardwear Sub Zero Jacket is a great down jacket for lighter intensity outdoor activities. Warm, highly compressible and smartly designed, this jacket is a good staple item for your gear closet. For those on multi-day mountaineering trips, the Sub Zero Parka (with hood) may be a better choice.
