- Q & A
I needed a light weight jacket that i could wear all the time. i live near the coast and have always had heavier shells that I could not wear year round. The Specter fits the bill perfect. It is super light weight and easily packable. The eVent has not let me down once where as my other Gortex jackets in the past would get moist on the inside of the jacket. I am 5'9 175 and got a medium and it is perfect. It is cut very slim so that is something to consider when sizing. Hope this helps!
A little tight...
Tried to make this work, but it is cut very tight. I wear a 48L business suit, and the XL was too tight in the shoulders and chest.
The jacket exhibited the usual Westcomb quality as far as sewing and attention to detail. Also, as advertized, it is very light. I have the Mirage in XXL, and I'm able to wear a down jacket underneath it without any problem.
But size up on the Specter, especially if you are contemplating wearing anything beyond a "T" shirt underneath.
