MontBell Tachyon Anorak

rated 4 of 5 stars Ultra light wind shirt, great protection, folds up tiny, not superb on breathability. Construction: I can be short with this review — The Tachyon anorak is one of the lightest, if not the lightest, wind shirts on the market. A size Large weighs in at 69 grams.  It folds up the size of a kiwi.  The (very) thin ballistic nylon the Tachyon is made of is very strong. I have worn this for two years, weekly. Not a rip or frayed piece of fabric. Only some discolouration from dirt etc. A friend of… Full review

Marmot Men's DriClime Vest

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great vest, but hard to find. I am 5'11", weigh about 210 lbs, and am normally an XL person. I purchased one of these vests in 2007/2008 in a Large, fit me well. An incident happened where I was falling, and my hands were in my pockets. In trying to get my right hand out to catch myself, I ripped the main fabric starting in the pocket. A total write-off of the vest.   I purchased another at a local store. The associate said the newer one (2009) didn't fit as loose as the older model. I ignored… Full review

The North Face Men's Verto Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Surprisingly breathable, durable, water resistant jacket. Have had this piece for a season now and I am thoroughly impressed. It is much more breathable and water resistant than expected. Even held off water in the shower test (other than the seams, which for weight are not sealed) to a surprisingly high degree. It is fairly wind resistant, but not to the extent I thought it might be. Have felt wind when above 20 mph. Not bad, but not its strongest suit. It does make up for it though in how breathable… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Women's Transition Zip T

rated 4 of 5 stars Stretchy, snug fit, that blocks wind. I really like this jacket. It's my go-to for skinning up trails when I'm working up a sweat, but the wind is too much to go in just a long sleeve shirt. I often throw on another jacket when it is time to go down. The durability and stretchability is great and with that it is becoming a go-to for windier climbing days since my other wind jacket leaves me sopping wet when I start to sweat (that'll be another review). I wish it was a little looser fitting so I… Full review

Montane Women's Featherlite Pants

rated 5 of 5 stars Light-as-air fabric magically protects your legs from cold wind and light rain! Wonderful for hiking in the cold and damp when the wind kicks up. From now on, I won't hike without them. The Montane Featherlite Pants are my new favorite thing in the world. I went hiking in the Adirondacks this past weekend, and the weather was sloppy and damp, chilly (about 33 degrees), and windy. The first day, I wore my typical synthetic, warmish tights, and had a very cold posterior most of the day. The second… Full review

Sierra Designs Men's Cloud Windshell

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The micro-climate, windproof layer of the three-piece Cloud Layering System: This uber-light, three-season wind shirt provides extra comfort for a myriad of activities when the biting wind shows up. Next to your base layer, its breathability keeps you dry and warm while you’re active. It’s not an insulator when you’re resting, but it resists rain. Combined with the Cloud Puffy, it makes for a warm rest or camp down to the low 30’s. Its regular fit (some room in the torso and arms) plus technical… Full review

Patagonia Men's First Sun Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars The hood covers head, back, and sides of neck for great sun protection, cooler than a hat. I use as a shirt, a bit heavier than some hiking shirts, but the hood is great. Sells as a jacket, so probably want a size smaller, and still get a relaxed fit for venting. Hands can be pulled inside cuffs for sun protection, if not holding something. Hood can be pulled down for more protection or not. Front unzips for venting, though that exposes skin to the sun. Elastic cuffs can be slid up arm to ventilation… Full review

Trangoworld Grid CN Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent jacket to carry it around in backpack just in case. In one word it fits great.  I am not sure if it is supposed to be waterproof but I have used it in rain and never got any water in. Breathability: Its material is not very breathable, but it has zip on side so you can open it to allow air to circulate. Warmth: It is not supposed to keep you warm but if combined with some fleece it serves well. Function: It serves me well. It has three pockets on the outside, I usually store storing… Full review

Wild Things Epic Hooded Windshirt

rated 5 of 5 stars My Wild Things wind shirt served me well in Antarctica, among other places where I have used it. Windshirts are a frequently overlooked clothing item when headed outdoors, despite the fact that they can be worn over fleece, softshells, sweaters, and other clothing to block wind while still providing lots of breathability. They often provide some water repellency adequate for a light drizzle and dry rapidly. They are usually very light and can be stuffed readily in a pocket (including their own pocket). Full review
