Patagonia Men's Houdini Pullover

rated 4 of 5 stars A very light, yet effective wind shirt for many uses. It is durable and comfortable to wear, and it packs down to the size of a stick of deodorant. The Patagonia Houdini Pullover is a simple, yet effective wind shirt that is very useful in many situations. It fits true to size, and I love wearing it with a Patagonia Snap-T fleece underneath, because the two garments have very similar styles and sizes that feel as though they were made to go together. The shirt does not have many ways to adjust it,… Full review

Marmot Men's Ether DriClime Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars The Marmot Ether Driclime Wind Jacket is just about the only piece of my outdoor clothes closet that always gets packed—year round. It’s a great wind jacket that keeps the chill off in a solid breeze through major wind gusts, is water repellent, and breathes well while providing some insulation. The perfect “not too hot – not too cold” shell for my metabolism on most trips throughout the year. Light and quick-drying, it’s difficult to find a reason to leave it behind. When Trailspace… Full review

Montane Minimus 777 Pull-On

rated 4 of 5 stars The Montane Minimus 777 is a 3-layer waterproof breathable jacket that eschews weight by using 7 denier fabrics for the membrane, inner and outer face (hence the name). It is spartan by design, but at only 4.7 oz still packs a hood, elasticized hem and cuffs, singular chest pocket, and water resistant zip. It would be best for trail running, thru hikers, or UL backpackers. FIT *For reference I am 6 foot, 170 lbs and received a men's large (42" chest, 34" waist). The fit of this jacket is spot on.

Swix Cyclon Packable Wind Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars This little beauty can be scrunched up small enough to fit into almost any pocket. Does a nice job of keeping out the wind chill factor. I've had this ultra lightweight wind jacket for some time, but only in the last month has the weather been cold and windy enough to use it. The Cyclon jacket is constructed of 100% 20 denier Nylon with a DWR (durable water repellent) coating to make it wind resistant. Weighing only 4 3/4 ounces the jacket can be rolled into such a small size that I can stow in… Full review

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
