User Review: Moonstone Activent Anorak
Price Paid: $190, often has HUGE discounts
Great windbreaker that ventilates really well. I went camping this weekend and experienced extremly varied conditions. One day the high was in the high 50's/low sixties with strong winds. Felt perfectly fine with just a synthetic T-shirt. Next day, a cold front pushed through, with hihs in the low 40's and extemely strong winds. Hiked up trail with intermittant protection/exposure. After finding right combination of insulation (thermal longsleeves and vest) the rest of the hke was fine.
Tremendous ability to ventilate; just opened pit zips (which NEED PULL TABS, PLEASE!) and front zipper which nearly goes to your waist. The end of the hike was an exposed, windswept rock. When I arrived, it started to snow. Even with the wind whipping the snow around and driving everyone else off the peak, I merely cinched down everything tight and spent an hour in terrible conditions.
Did have a hard time with the hood cords while wearing gloves, but they eventually came around. Hood offered good protection, but did not really examine how it moved with my head.
Overall, a very impressive piece. Am waiting to see how it holds up on the slopes, for I am hoping to find an all around general shell. Is often found at a HUGE discount at various sites like Mtn. Gear, REI, etc. Check it out.
