Good deals on Mountain Hardwear at STP on 09/25/2013 09:46:41 MDT Print View

Using today's dealflyer special the MH Hooded Phantom Down Jacket is $126 down from $300. The MH Plasmic is $66 (usually $140) and is I believe a rebranded form of eVent DVL. Free shipping on orders over $100 and the code I got in my email is EEU3429P, good for three orders.

Any idea how much down is in the phantom jacket?

I'm pretty sure it is the 'Dry Q Elite' that is the rebrand of eVent. The Dry.Q whatever else is just a normal 2.5 layer jacket.

I unfortunately can't remember where I read the info, whether it was a post here or on another site, where they broke down all the Dry Q levels. The gist of it was the Dry Q elite was eVent, Dry Q core was their cheap proprietary epic membrane (or coating?) and Dry Q evap was eVent DVL 2.5 layer fabric. Then again my memory often fails me and I could be quite off base.

I believe the ratings for Dry Q Elite is 40,000/30,000 (hydrostatic head/breathability)

I think standard eVent is something in the 20,000/20,000 region, probably a bit more.

Jeffrey, I believe it's 6.35oz of down. I had emailed MHW about it awhile back and they said 180grams IIRC. This is for the hooded version, figure a half to full oz less for the non-hooded. I have it and it's definitely puffy. I would put it in the solid big brand 16oz range for jackets. Not as warm looking or feeling as a beefy box-baffled jacket like a Rab Neutrino Plus, but definitely warmer and colder oriented than Montbell UL Parka or MHW Ghost Whisperer.

One caveat is the fit. It's MHW Active Fit which means a little smaller than normal. I'm a solid Small in DeadBird regardless of fit and MHW active fit smalls are pretty tight. I got a medium in this jacket and it's still feels a little on the small side with room for only the smallest layers. Then again I have a climber's body so we get big shoulder/back region without increasing chest too much and everything fits weird! Definitely a nice jacket though and I can't wait to test mine out this winter.
