This jacket is as awesome as it gets for alpine mountaineering. Tough as nails, it has no holes despite 2 summers of abuse so far. It has stood up to rain and snow without letting a drop in while at the same time never been too hot in the sun (mine is blue, I'd be weary of wearing a black one). I've worn it twice up Rainier and wore while leaving camp Sherman in the middle of the cold night until getting back in the late morning sun. The side zips are awesome, allowing ventilation while open if its warm but blocking wind and chill when cold. Large sleeve cuffs are also nice for gloves. This piece is crucial for my alpine wardrobe and I will replace it with the same jacket no doubt (if it ever needs to be).

Excellent Product for Demanding Environments (Review by Alaska Guide)
Quality

I guide canoe and mountaineering expeditions in S.E. Alaska. This is a harsh and unforgiving place and the Maximus has handled it all. Weeks of non-stop rain, heavy snow, dense rainforest, and of course weeks of ocean paddling. When I'm not hiding in my dry suit I'm taking refuge in my Maximus. My trips are up to fifty field days long, the OR Maximus is the only gore-tex jacket that has survived a Tongass Program unscathed, and I did not go easy on it. The 70D exterior is bomber and the jacket is sufficiently light for any outdoor pursuit. Excellent product.

great jacket with one needed improvement (Review by ole einar)
Quality

Love this jacket...But please add zippers to the sleeve openings for all your technical shells. This is a must since users wear big bulky gloves/mittens and the sleeves go over these gloves/mittens. The zippers on the sleeve opening would make it much much easier to put on and to remove the gloves/mittens.

Men's Maximus Jacket™ (Review by By Mountain Sense)

This is a solid shell for alpine climbing and multi-day expeditions style endeavors. It's great for variable conditions where the temp is back and forth across the freezing mark. It breaths well considering it's durability and the protection is offers. My only issue was with the sleeve length when reaching over my head, I think the cut through the shoulders or the sleeve length could be adjusted.
