Blocks the breeze with ease.
Even in warmer weather, high-altitude winds can cool you down in a hurry, but the Outdoor Research Whirlwind Men's Hooded Jacket stops the breeze from chilling your core when you're climbing or hiking. This wind-resistant softshell is made from a highly breathable and partially recycled stretch fabric for knit-like softness and protection against light showers, and boasts a zippered chest pocket that secures daily accessories and doubles as a stuff sack for convenient storage. Internal thumbholes protect your hands in cool, not-quite-glove temperatures.

I absolutely love this jacket! It is extremely comfortable and has incredible versatility! The polyester and spandex softshell feels great on my skin and is incredibly breathable, even as it keeps most of the wind and rain out. I use this jacket for climbing, biking, running, and even sitting here in the office. It does a great job of regulating body temperature and I find it comfortable as a stand alone piece (just a t-shirt underneath) in temps from 45-75. The long arms and center back length make this a great jacket for active pursuits where wind and moisture might be a factor.
I included a picture of the jacket packed into it's chest pocket, iPhone 6s for scale.
