The Women’s Mountain Hardwear Thermostatic Jacket with a new type of insulation called Therma Q.  Mountain Hardwear claim’s it’s 20% warmer than the leading synthetics – but they probably mean it’s 20% warmer than the synthetics they were using before (Thermic Micro) – which finally gives us an idea of the likely c|o value of Thermic Micro – about .70 clo/oz.

Outdoor Gear TV does a good review of the Thermostatic Women’s Jacket (which also comes in a hoody)

The women’s Thermostatic is a low-profile synthetic down jacket, perfect for warmer winter days and a great layering piece on the colder days. It’s pretty impressive how warm this jacket is, considering how lightweight and small it is. Thermal. Q Elite synthetic insulation is not only warm, but packs down nicely. The fleece lined pockets are a nice touch to the jacket on cool days when worn as an outer layer piece. We would add a zippered chest pocket, if we could make one change.


  • Two front handwarmer pockets
  • Dual hem drawcords for quick fit adjustments
  • Low profile elastic cuffs for easy layering
  • Jacket stows in pocket
