Life changing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

In the past it really had to hit the fan for me to put on a shell. I can't believe how well this breaths compared to other fabric. Top of the line build quality to boot.

Really good jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Westcomb is a pretty good brand and this jacket is pretty awesome. I am 5"10 175lbs and the medium is a perfect fit with enough room for layers. Sleeves are perfect and the hood is one of the best in the industry, even tops arcteryx. Overall awesome shell for the price.

Does this hood fit your head like the apoc...

Does this hood fit your head like the apoc one? I am curious because I think westcomb nailed the hood design without the helmet.

I wear glasses and the hood on the Swift is one of my favourite features of this jacket. Great protection and moves really well with your head. I like it better than the raved about hoods of the Arc'teryx Alpha Jackets. I might like the Rab hoods better, but if I do, not by far.

Superior Quality

Will update this review after long term use. For now I just have to say Westcomb makes high quality gear, with great attention to detail.
Regardless of breathability, which might or might not work depending on your output and climate, it is great to have proper pitzips with this fabric. Personally in humid summer weather or cold biting winters where I speed hike in the mountains, I prefer the ventilation over anything else. One of the lighter weight if not lightest NeoShells with pitzips out there. Napoleon pockets great and good length. Not super trim cut, between athletic and more relaxed. Highly recommended.

What is the verdict?

It is a very solid jacket. Not as wind proof as one would imagine. Great if you are moving.

I think what Dane says is right. The thing is for me it doesn't breath enough, nor can I ventilate enough for the output I do. Even just above freezing with rain I sweat, also in this jacket, so I just use a heavy baselayer/light grid fleece with a windshell, letting myself get wet but being a more comfortable in temperature. Then when I reach a ridge or peak and take a break, I have been using this jacket to keep the wind out and keep me warm. The thing is because of the added breathability I cool down more, so to my own surprise I bought a slightly lighter gtx pullover with the biggest pit zips I could find. That way if I do use it on the move I can ventilate like crazy, and when I'm taking a break on an exposed peak in high wind I have better protection from the wind.
This is still a great jacket and I can highly recommend it as I think it would work for a lot of people. Just not for my usage.

Athletic Cut

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

So I'm a bit on the stockier side and layering the Arc'teryx Atom SV jacket underneath was too tight in the arm holes even though the rest of the jacket fit. I returned both jackets.

great purchase

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

highly breathable, great cut, and good looking. It's been great thus far for both resort and backcountry skiing, and bangin' around town. I'm 5'7" and the small fit like a glove.

Love the Neo Shell material. The Westcomb jacket is cool - I went for the Rab version which is also great. Never thought I'd be skinning up in a waterproof jacket, but Neo Shell is nice...
