I won a drawing? Amazing! I never win drawings!

This should come in very handy in my trip to Peru next month with the American Alpine Club's Climber Science Program. (if you look at the Yannapacha video on the Climber Science page, you can spot me in several of the early scenes - that's from the 2011 expedition, shot by Alex, our expedition doctor). Our biggest problem clothing-wise in the past summers has been the wind. I have a well-worn Montane eVent shell, which has done very well, so this windshirt should work out well.

Thanks, Seth!

Way to go Bill.

I personally will be looking for a wind tunnel test in the not so distant future.

I think 300 mph(just a suggestion) should do well to see just how resistant the shell is to a slight "breeze."

Received it, and wore it on a hike up one of the local hills yesterday. It is a windshell, not a full weather-protection jacket. The hike was pretty breezy, so I got to experience the wind protection, and since the hike climbed 2500 ft in 4 miles (then back down), I got to get an impression of the breathability. After I wear it a few more times, I will do a write-up. I will note that, though it is a large, according to the label, it is fairly tight across the shoulders for me, with fairly slim sleeves at the arm-body point, which would limit wearing it over layers.

Glad to hear it arrived and you've already started using it, Bill.

I'm sure others will appreciate reading your review once you've put it through its paces.
