User Review: TAD Stealth Hoodie
Price Paid: samples provided for testing and review
The Triple Aught Design Stealth Hoodie LT is a dynamite jacket from a company that’s clearly serious about its gear.
Triple Aught builds the Stealth Hoodie LT out of Schoeller softshell fabric. It’s lightweight, flexible (not stiff like some lesser-quality fabrics), both wind and waterproof, and breathable. I found the jacket performed well in a variety of conditions, in the mountains, on the stream and around town.
In addition, the Stealth Hoodie LT boasts a range of features that make it extremely versatile. This jacket bristles with pockets. Pockets on the sleeves, pockets on the torso, pockets on the back, there are even pockets within pockets.
By my count, there are no fewer than nine that cover the Stealth Hoodie LT. The torso pockets are placed to not interfere with a pack belt and do double duty as part of the jacket’s ventilation system. There’s also a pass-through port in the right torso pocket for your headphones, nice detail. The jacket does seem to be missing an interior pocket, but that’s only a minor criticism at this point.
