Get it while you can, because Mountain Hardwear is discontinuing this product! Now is a great time to grab this softshell at a discount.
The Mountain Hardwear Dragon is a heavier softshell that has an extended, hip-length cut, roomy torso for layering underneath, and long sleeves. Those with shorter arms or bodies may find the Dragon too spacious, but most will experience exceptional mobility, the ability to put base layers on smoothly, and that the large hood and extended waist provide significant protection in harsh weather conditions. This is a jacket that we would take to go ice climbing or ski touring in the middle of winter, not rock climbing or mountain biking mid-summer. The heavy material used does not breathe as well as lighter jackets, like our Top Pick for Climbing Rab Torque.
