Customer Reviews

Serves the purpose but... (Review by Tleu)

I love this jacket. It fulfills everything I had hoped it would. The only problem I have is that after receiving the jacket in the mail I noticed the stitching in the cuffs is wonky. It appears to have doubled over while being stitched, making it uncomfortable at times. I imagine this is a rare defect but never-the-less, it happened.

This jacket seems like the answer! (Review by Roger)

I have been looking for a wind shell with some degree of waterproofness but also very breathable for spring skiing. Worn with just a light base-layer or mid-layer this shell is perfect! Layer under or over it and you have a nearly weightless option. Doesn't have a ton of "bells and whistles" but delivers on the "minimalist" end.

Superlight wind and light precip shell (Review by Mike B)

I've used this extensively the past two months while backcountry skiing. On cold days I use this as my uphill layer to protect from wind and snow, then throw a shell over top for the downhill. The shoulders and hood provide adaquate protection, while the body remains breathable. Highly recommended

Great jacket (Review by sfotex)

I wanted a jacket for trail running with a hood for afternoon thunderstorms, etc. This is a great idea, the body works as a wind shirt, with a weather resistant hood/shoulders. The arms are nice and long, and the jacket is pretty well featured for such a light piece -- hood adjustment, little piece of fleece covers the zipper at the chin, etc.

My only gripe is I wished there was a strap to hold the hood down when you don't need it, it's pretty noisy when it's flapping around when you're running with the hood down. If you were using it for climbing, hiking, etc. this probably wouldn't be a big deal.
