Windproof, waterproof, and wicking; indeed! The only drawback from the model I have is the asymmetrical neck zipper which either is all the way up or just feels funny. Otherwise, the light shirt resists all wind and has a great collar height and elastic cuffs.

I have used this a lot recently while I canoe here in interior Alaska. It has taken the place of jackets, even, in light rain and heavy wind. There has not been ANY water to get through this thing. I know that absolute won't last forever but I thought it was pretty amazing when I had it out this summer. I plan on using it as a second layer in the winter time, alternating with the MH Transition zip, a heavier-duty alternative.

It took a few years for me to figure out the best use of this "next to skin" shirt. Now I won't hike without it if the conditions are at all challenging. That is wind, rain, temperatures between 30 and 60F. I wear it over a long-sleeve polyester base layer.

I wore it 14 days in Nepal, every day in Kamchatka, where it shrugged off the thorns of the wild roses. It offers a great deal of wind resistance for a very few ounces.

Now my problem is trying to find a second one in case the first ever wears out.
