Mountain Hardware Hooded Nitrous Jacket

Hooded Nitrous JacketThis article comes from the lovely ladies at GearGals, who have kindly agreed to share this review of the Mountain Hardware Hooded Nitrous Jacket with GO! Girls Outdoors.

The author is one "GreyingGearGal" who introduced me to my current word of the week - "ort" - which is the word for the bits of food left over on a plate after a meal.  Thanks to GreyingGearGal my vocabulary is now one word richer, and I hope that all the mums out there will now be saying to their kids, "eat your orts or there'll be no dessert".

As for the jacket - you'll have to switch to the GearGals website for the full review by GreyingGearGal.  Have a read of the first few sentences and then click the article title below...

Our newest reviewer wants to be known as the “GrayingGeargal.” She wrote the following review for us to demonstrate to our readers that outdoor gear is not just for epic adventures; even urban adventurers need gear as well. It’s unlikely that GGG is going to climb any 8000 meter peaks (or, honestly, any 1000 meter peaks) but she does get outside when it’s fiercely cold, and, since she’s been wearing the same 25 year old jackets for a loooong time now, can really give some insight into the industry’s dramatic leaps in technology.
