Product Description

The Vapor was designed to offer the perfect combination of comfort, performance, and weight in an all-around jacket. It is lightweight, comfortable, weather resistant, and warm. With its Windstopper shell fabric and self sealing cuffs, this jacket looks as good as it feels. All this in a jacket that weighs a mere 16 ounces! Made in Canada. MSRP $290

Initial Review

I found this jacket to be amazingly warm given its light weight. The Wind Stopper shell fabric is very durable, and has yet to snag after many outings in both rock and vegetative abrasive environments. I chose the Vapor jacket to replace a MH Phantom, and it is much warmer and incredibly more durable. The only thing I would change would be to add additional pockets as it only has two exterior pockets.
