Wind be gone.

Great for hiking, backcountry touring, and long approaches, the jacket features a stretch softshell fabric at the back and underarms and is reinforced with Gore Windstopper at the hood, arms, and chest. The combination of these two fabrics make the jacket comfortable, breathable, and windproof where you need it. Features on the jacket include a fixed storm hood, x-open underarm ventilation zips,and hand and chest pockets.

- Q & A
Techny with comfort
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: small
I have yet to wear this in the elements but I have first impressions. It has an extremely buttery feel and stretch that makes this soft shell very comfortable. It has Gore Wind stopper membrane that is great for freedom when moving. I am excited to try this on a spring day on the ski hill as well as a chilly morning climbing. I love the Hot Chili color!
How far does the hood come over your head? Does it have a little bit of a "visor" section? Does it just come up to your forehead/hairline or is it good coverage? For example like the hood on item# NRA0159, which if you watch the video is what I am looking for. Thank you anyone who can help!
