We love our puffers around here…but sometimes you want the warmth without being so…puffy.

Enter the Mountain Hardwear Super/DS Hybrid Jacket. It’s warm and soft, but it’s also made to move in. It’s stretchy. I know. Brilliant. And there’s a hood. And it’s pretty darn cute for such a hardworking jacket.

It’s made for getting out and being active…but is sleek enough for wearing anytime. Let’s check out more of the technical details.

The Deets On The Mountain Hardwear Super/DS Stretchdown Hybrid Hooded Jacket

  • Exclusive stretch-woven fabric delivers incredible durable stretch
  • 700-fill, RDS®-certified down insulation (responsibly sourced down)
  • Revolutionary interwoven, stitch-free baffle construction
  • No insulation in lower body and underarms
  • Two harness compatible zippered hand pockets
  • Zippered chest pocket
  • Elastic cuffs
  • 700-fill RDS-Certified Down/Flourine Free

I found the Super/DS Stretchdown jacket to fit true-to-size with room for my sweater underneath (hello, stretch!) but still a flattering slimmer fit. I’ve worn it on neighborhood walks and beach walks, but it would be amazing for hiking, climbing, etc., It’s easily packable for such a warm jacket, as well. Perfect for travel, camping and outdoors-ing!

The Mountain Hardwear Stretchdown Hybrid jacket is the version I have here, in Raw Clay, with a slightly longer panel in back and at the sleeves. This version also comes in a pretty dusty mauve, a deep teal and a dark storm, (almost black.)

It’s offered in a few other lovely colors in the very similar Stretchdown Hooded Jacket, some currently on sale. The color Dunes, a gorgeous light taupe, is my favorite. The differences in the two are the longer back panel and the slight contrast in the extra panels at the sides and wrists in the Hybrid.

The Super/DS Parka is a longer version, and there’s a rad looking Hoodie version, too. Love the cut and details on that one. All of them are made for superior movement while staying warm.

Mountain Hardwear Super/DS Collection

My first real raincoat purchase when we moved to Portland was a Mountain Hardwear jacket, and it lasted me YEARS. The quality is phenomenal on these pieces, and I have many friends here in the Northwest who swear by them. Here’s the whole Super/DS line. Each is offered in a few different color options and has sizing notes on the website (a few run large).
