Price Paid: $200
Excellent jacket. I like the "athletic" or trim fit rather than bulky or loose. The best fleece jacket I ever owned. Good ventilation from the long pit zips. Layers well under a parka. I like to layer it over Under Armor Cold Gear for really cold temperatures.
I was afraid of spending so much on the jacket, but it is worth every penny. I have had it for over two years, and expect to have it for several more.

We think of WindStopper as the paradigm for a mid-layer. Totally windproof, yet very breathable, it effectively fights convective heat loss (wind chill). This extra protection allows for garments that are lighter than comparable standard fleece while providing a broader comfort range. The WindStopper Tech Jackets use a moisture-managing knit mesh lining. Cut trim through the torso for thermal efficiency, more loosely in the extremities for freedom of movement, WindStopper Tech is perfect for high-output, fast-forward activities - think mountain biking or ski touring. Its versatility also makes it great for backcountry use. With features like extra-long pit zips, zippered hand and security pockets, and reinforcements in high-abrasion areas, WindStopper Tech will quickly become one of your
