The Mountain Hardwear Monkey Man jacket is an excellent choice for winter weather, and a great-looking alternative to the typical boring fleece jackets you see everyday. It is one of the most unique, technical and attractive fleeces around. Made with Polartec Thermal Pro High Loft, the fleece, known as Monkey Phur, is more plush and shaggy than the standard fleece jackets. At an average weight of 14 ounces, the Monkey Man is much lighter than comparable fleece jackets. It’s perfect for those concerned with having alot of warmth for a little weight and compressibility (it packs well). It is breathable, so when you’re working up a sweat on a cold day, you won’t overheat and have to shed layers. Polartec Power Stretch cuffs and waist allow freedom of movement. Its insulative capabilities, breathability, and light weight prompted Everest guru, Ed Viesturs, to bring a Monkey Man Jacket on his last Annapurna trip. This is not a windproof jacket, so the Monkey Man will be chilly in cold, hard winds. Just throw on a weatherproof shell, and you have a layering system that’s tough to beat.
