Steve WAwrote a review of Marmot Trail Wind Hooded Jacket - Men's on December 20, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
When I first saw these wind layers I was dubious about their value. However, I took it on a multi-day trek to Patagonia and I'm a fan. Great as a windbreaker and for sprinkles, it also breathes extremely well. It weights next to nothing and packs to a small size so it's a no-brainer to bring on a trip. In some ways more useful than a polypro warming layer.
I'll definitely be taking these on all my alpine rock climbing trips for windy belays.
However, when the "real weather" hits you definitely want a true waterproof rain jacket.
