Why We Built The Canyonlands Lightweight Wind Jacket

There could be a brisk breeze blowing just around the corner whenever you're in a slot canyon, so keep the Backcountry Men's Canyonlands Lightweight Wind Jacket packed away just in case. This light jacket packs inside its own pocket to fit inside the palm of your hand, so you can fit the jacket in backpacks as small as hydration packs. There are ventilation panels at each side to amplify airflow in warmer weather. The cuffs and hood have elastic bindings to stay secure and complement the jacket's light compactness.

Love this jacket and keep in in my race vest for sudden changes in temperature or precipitation! Got an XL as I usually wear a large just to have the room to fit over my base and mid layers

RUNS VERY SMALL, I usually wear a large. After reading reviews I opted for a XXL so I could wear over a thin mid layer. It is still very form fitting. If it was a millimeter smaller anywhere it would be too small. But I am able to wear it over my mid layer... barely. Feels very well made and high quality. Looks good too

I bought an XL looking for a loose fit and it fit like a trim L. And was rather tight still in the chest and shoulders. The shoulder seems were on the top of my shoulders...like I was wearing a medium. I'm tempted to get an XXL but think this one is going back. Otherwise nice lightweight wind jacket but made for human stick figures.

My husband has gone through two wind jackets in the past few years. Ok that's a euphemism; he lost them. Instead of buying another expensive jacket, I decided to try the new Backcountry brand jacket for a sliver of the price, and in bright red. Hopefully the red will help him keep track of it - and I can easily spot him when he's wearing it - but if he loses it we aren't out a Benjamin, win-win! Fits great (he's a medium and it fits like a slim fit medium), packs up small enough to fit anywhere, and takes the edge off on those blowy days. Great find!

I ordered a large in this jacket, which is the size I wear in pretty much everything. I'm 6'1" and 200 lbs. Anyhow, the large was too small in my shoulders, back and chest. It's nice material otherwise, but maybe get a size larger than you normally wear.

I use this jacket for sub 45 degree days with a long sleeve base layer underneath. It's super light weight, breathable and keeps me warm. If I get warm on the climb it packs down really small to fit in a jersey pocket and then I'll throw it on for the descent. The fit is great for an active layer, very form fitting and comfortable to move in. I'm 5'8" and 150lbs and wear a small.

Well made, lots of pockets in well thought-out places, air vent, light-weight. Fit was a little too tight for comfort in the chest and shoulders. I wear a 40R jacket, and the large was too slim fitting for me.

Great Jacket

True to size

I bought this jacket for my Dad who walks 6 miles every morning. He was cold at the start of his walks and the air was often wet. He loves this jacket and says he can wear it for his entire walk without overheating. It also keeps him dry until the dew burns off in the AM. It fits well and true to size. I like that he is more visible when wearing this jacket.

I used this windbreaker for mtb and loved it! It's a great piece when you are starting off your climb and there's a windchill. I tend to get really warm when I get to the top of a climb so having a lightweight packable windbreaker that won't weigh me down is ideal on descents. Being able to just pack this in my hip pack without taking to much space for my tools or snacks is great! Not to mention the fact that it has a DWR coated finish in case you get caught in those light rain showers .

Got this in a medium. Needed it in a large to help me fill out a thicker base layer. But other than that flaw of my own, this thing was great in the light wet rain/snow I experience while walking around the hills of Timpanogos. It packs small so I could carry it in my hydration packs extra small pocket for a quick find when needed on the trail.

I bought this wind coat before a planned 30-mile hike/trail run around the Pemi Loop in the White Mountains. I wanted something light to pack in my hydration vest, that would battle light weather conditions. It worked well from a weight perspective, and we got caught in a real storm with 40+ mph winds and sideways rain. It wasn't enough for that weather, but, I didn't expect it to be - HOWEVER, it did work to keep me dry and comfortable after that storm, and throughout the rest of the day with intermittent wind and light rain. Love the color, the size fits perfect (Medium, I'm 5"10 - 170 lb) and I've worn it multiple times now in light storm conditions and it works well. Only complaint, and only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that there is next to zero ventilation; only two tiny eyelets under the arm pits. I tried running with this in a light storm in more humid weather and sweat through it from the inside out. So, at that point, I'd rather be wet from the rain than wet from my own sweat. But in temps under 75 degrees, for light activity and hiking, this piece is great.

Thanks for the super informative review David! Super helpful to get the full picture and even some suggestions for future updates. Happy you enjoy it!

I bought the men's jacket because I like things to fit looser over layers, and because the black pattern on this one looks sick! This jacket is the perfect piece to throw in any pack and it takes up almost no space. It's so useful to have when encountering slightly colder temps, windy weather, or unexpected light rains.

This is a really nice and light piece, wearing it over a tee when the sun is warm but the wind is chilly is the best combo, and it fits in your pocket or pack without much bulk. This jacket might as well be a staple for runners and climbers.

This is a perfect piece to have in your hiking pack, or just in your car. fits well, and works as a great layer for when it chills up, or weather rolls in. I've been keeping this in my fanny pack when riding MTN Bike.

Awesome review, thank you for commenting :)

Packing into its own pocket and feather weight, this item is one that will live on my harness on all summer climbs. There's nothing like a wind layer to change the chilly belay to pleasant, or to have something extra to throw on in layers if your descent ends up running later than expected.

Really lightweight and super minimal. All packed down, its just a bit bigger than a baseball. I recently took it on an ocean trip in Northern California. Fishing out on the cliffs, it kept the wind from kicking my butt. I also wore it out on the Kayak while crabbing to keep my upper body dry from splash. Worked like a charm. Use the hood as a stuff sack and this bad boy can be tucked away for every adventure. Arms are a nice length, fits great but I’d like to see it a bit longer in the body.

Is there a way to pack this into itself and hook to a biner on a harness? Looking for something for my partner to take on multipitch climbs without needing a pack to put it in.

Hi Danielle, The jacket packs into its own chest pocket and has a double sided zipper so you can close it. Once closed you can clip the corded zipper pull to your harness/pack. Ben

This appears to be similar to the Patagonia Houdini wind jacket in that it is minimal and light weight, but what is the weight of this jacket?
