User Review: Beyond Clothing Cold Fusion X Jacket
Fabric: Shoeller WB-400
Price Paid: $179
This jacket is made to order to your size. Already a huge advantage for anyone stuck in between sizes, or having trouble finding clothing because of long arms, weird proportions, etc. You go to their web site, beyondfleece.com, and send them your measurements and what options (pockets, pit-zips, etc) you prefer. I chose pit-zips and a neck-cinch, which both proved very useful.
The amazing thing is this custom hi-tech garment with the basic configuration comes to you at a price cheaper than or competitive with other outdoor companies that make jackets with the same fabric. Speaking of which, I am must say I am now a huge fan of Shoeller. The WB-400 used in this jacket is both super warm and breathable, yet at the same time lightweight and nearly windproof.
Here I am talking from experience also. I basically spent the past year living in this jacket while traveling throughout South America. In strong winds and cold it never failed me. Even in moderate rain I hardly needed to resort to my shell. In all, I have to say it is currently my favorite peice of gear and I continue to depend on it greatly.
