User Review: Westcomb Men's Specter LT Hoody
Price Paid: $199.99
Excellent lightweight shell!! Breathable, packable and comfy. I was shocked at how thin the material is, but it does what's advertised. Keeps the rain off you and packs light (11 oz.).
It wasn't designed for abuse like some heavier shell, due to the light eVent material used, but it was a great jacket for an early morning descent down from Unicorn, Mt Rainier State Park! Check out the Phantom or Mirage, if you're wanting a heavier duty jacket.
The chin area has an enormous soft wrap in the front, more than any other jacket I've tried. Sooo comfy to wear! Haven't put it through any heavy rain, but I'm not worried! eVent rules! This stuff breathes like no other!
If you want an awesome lightweight shell, Westcomb delivers! And they're also pretty informative on the phone with the questions I had, and because their products are still hard to find in person anywhere, you may want to contact them directly.
My one comment would be that the vampire color is a cool, faded cranberry, not the orange or red that it would seem. I like it, but the photos don't really give you a true color to go on. I will be looking at EVERYTHING they put out in the category I need before I look at anything else!
