My understanding is that Columbia has owned MH for a several years, and, more recently purchased the "Out Dry" technology from an Itialian company. I just checked Columbia's website and the use of Out Dry appears limited to shoes and gloves. Mountain Hardware uses the Out Dry process as a major component in jackets and pants.

High Angles stated last year that Mountain Hardware would become much more a high end, high price line to differentiate MH from Columbia and directly compete with the high end lines such as ArcTeryx. Prices for MH 2013 ski gear do seem to reflect that merchandising philosophy.

I do wonder if all the discussion about the weird sizing of Mountain Hardware jackets will result in more typical sizing patterns. Try it on before you buy.
