Patagonia Men's Houdini Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars My go-to jacket for any outdoor endeavor. Pound for pound the warmest piece of gear out there. This is my favourite jacket ever, and one I never leave behind regardless of what outdoor pursuit I might be on.  Full review

Marmot Men's Ether DriClime Hoody

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great wind resistant hoody. Inner fleece provides warmth and wicks sweat. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great warm windbreaker for medium activity. This hoody fits nice and close to the body, the inner fleece interferes with grippier (say merino wool) layers underneath which makes putting it on/taking it off a chore. The hood has one adjustment cord, gets in the way when looking around for oncoming traffic on a bike. The sleeves have a stretchy end, but it is not as tight as to… Full review

Trew Up Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Trew women’s Up Jacket (W’s Up Jacket…haha) has served me well as a summer weight windshirt. Lightweight, packable, and windproof, the Up Jacket is an excellent summit layer that is virtually unnoticeable in my pack. It's ideal for those who enjoy ultralight gear as it omits unnecessary features, saving on weight. It may not be a match for those on the market for a lightweight jacket with all the bells and whistles, but for me it has been an outdoor adventuring staple I’ve rarely left… Full review

Patagonia Men's Houdini Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This shell is ridiculously light and packable. If the weather is staying above 50 degrees, then this is my shell. If it gets colder than that, I'd prefer something more substantial like the Marmot Precip. This is my go-to shell for not only backpacking, but I keep it in the car everywhere I go. I'm 6 feet tall and 185 lbs. The large is a perfect fit for me. To be sure, this is the full zip version, not the pullover. The hood fits great, and the cinch in the back of the hood stays comfortably out… Full review

Sierra Designs Men's Microlight 2 Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars A good, basic wind breaker (when did these begin being called wind shirts?). Breathable, packable and roomy enough for layering. This is one of the clothing items that make up a layered system that can handle a wide range of climates. From a winter camp in Wisconsin to windy days along the shores of Lake Michigan and bike commuting in Chicago this basic windbreaker works just fine. The price was good, quality top-notch. All it lacks is the high-priced name tag of other outdoor clothing. I bought… Full review

Patagonia Men's Houdini Jacket

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Well constructed, lightweight, and does keep the wind out. Not so good if it gets very wet but in light mist or rain it works fine. Well constructed, very light and easily packable. Runs true to size. I'm about 5'11" 190lbs and the large is just right. Seems very reistant for overall wear. All in all a good light jacket. Full review

Brooks-Range Lt Breeze Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars The Brooks-Range Lt Breeze Jacket is a versatile, innovative, ultra-light wind jacket. The innovation? Paper thin “fleece” diamonds laminated to the inside of the 20-denier nylon fabric that keep cold, wet nylon off your skin or base layer and boost airflow beneath the fabric. This jacket looks great, fits well, wears like iron, and weighs a scant 5.3 ounces in size medium. Those fleece diamonds do exactly what Brooks Range intended; they eliminate that clammy sticky feeling when wearing this… Full review

Patagonia Light and Variable Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This jacket is perfect for those rainy summer days. This jacket is perfect to take on camping trips. It folds up into its pocket and has a clip you can clip onto the back of your pack. It is also perfect for traveling on an airplane. Fits right into your carry-on in case it's a little chilly on the plane. It's lightweight, which is perfect for those hot, rainy summer days. The material is very comfortable and doesn't stick to your skin. You can tighten the hood if the rain starts to get bad. The… Full review

Paramo Fuera Ascent Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a very light robust windproof with a DWR coating to keep off light showers. Totally multi-dextrous in use. I have used it for general wear, hiking, backpacking, cycling and canoeing...and it fits nicely into all these categories. It looks great. This piece is very good indeed. Everything works very well, especially the hood which has three adjustment points. It is more complicated than most wind jackets I have had before in that it has not only the great hood but also pit zips and two large… Full review
