My shell jacket has been great for shedding the rain, but when it comes to a cold, windy day, I'm out of luck with just the shell. I needed something other than a cotton hoody or a wool sweatshirt to keep me warm.
After doing some research, I found the Windwall 1 on sale at the local Hudson Trail Outfitters. There were several other more expensive options for a wind fleece, but I stuck with the most affordable one. After going on a hike over the weekend, I had a chance to see how effective the jacket was against the wind.
Needless to say, this was the perfect, lightweight investment needed to complete my mid-layer hiking/backpacking/everyday need. It kept me warm and comfortable, doing a perfect job at blocking the gusts of cold (30°F) wind.
The only thing this jacket lacks is a pocket on the inside of the jacket.
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The whipping wind slices through normal fleece jackets like butter, but The North Face WindWall 1 Fleece Jacket acts as an armor against an advancing cold front while you ski, hike, or bike through the mountains. Wind-resistant WindWall fabric technology filters out the wind so you can keep cruising up the skin track or summit loop trail without teeth-chattering retreats from the backcountry. When the storm rolls in just slip on a stormproof shell and this fleece becomes a great mid layer for blocking the worst winter weather.
