An essential piece of ultralight clothing
I was looking for a super lightweight women's wind jacket for a while (most others I found were 5 oz +). The Verto did not disappoint. It's just a great little jacket to pull on on summer trips when the breeze picks up. I haven't gotten to test it in major wind yet, but will update when I do. It breathes as well as a true wind jacket should, and the fact that you get a hood for this weight is pretty awesome. And the pertex quantum material is really cool - very silky.
Only drawback is the silver (which is really more of a gray - not too shiny) makes you look a bit like space girl in the forest....Neither of the colors the Verto comes in are very earthy - they're more like ski colors, but I guess the Verto will come in handy this winter too :)
In sum, best women's wind jacket I've found - worth the extra money.
