The proprietary ripstop is durable and breathable, and it's been designed with laser-perforated underarm vents to increase airflow during our most ambitious adventures.

Great windshirt

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Fits well, packs small, cuts the wind. Haven't tried it in rain, but in S. Arizona in April-May, there's not much chance for that. I like it that the cuffs are not completely elasticized, as I don't like clothing that is tight around my wrists. Color is bright and visible.

Run and ride

Nice super light stash jacket for running and cycling. Enough weather protection with visibility. Like the gold color for visibility.

I would buy this product again

I purchased this jacket as my main everyday jacket for fall, winter, and spring. It's light and a good for layering. Not much by way of cons for this one other that this garmet can hold odors quite quickly and would need some attention after a long hike. But I found that if you just soak it in water and hang it out to dry, it's minimizes the funk easy.

Great gear for the shoulder seasons

Compact and light weight, I keep this stuffed until the weather turns. Highly wind and water resistant, it also works great as a layering piece when it gets a bit colder. I am very happy with this purchase.

Excellent Wind shell for cold weather running

This light weight shell is comfortable and breathable. Use it on cold and windy runs. I used it on 5 runs 90 to 120 mins long. My experience is with one GOOD base layer or 2 long sleeve technical fabric shirts, it performs well down to 10 to 15 degrees F with wind chill in the singles to single negatives. It cuts the wind well, yet is breathable. Still very comfortable (not too warm), in the low 30's F with a thin base, or 1 technical long sleeve. The fabric is soft and comfortable. Only wish I could roll up the hood and securely tuck it. Its like a parachute back there every once in a while with higher winds, but not that big of a problem. It looks great on and is comfortable wearing it casually. I took a chance on this shell, very glad I did. Great job OR.

Excellent wind shell

Very nice and lightweight shell. I've never used a pure wind shell before. I was surprised how much it improves the experience of exercising outside in the winter. I've only used it for excising, but plan to use it hiking. I'm 6' 2" and 215 lbs, size 46 chest. The sizing is almost perfect. The xl has enough room to wear a light weight fleece underneath, without being too baggy with a t-shirt.
