User Review: Wild Things Epic Halfzip Windshirt
Source: bought it used
Price Paid: $40
My go-to apparel for trail running and backpacking.
- Minimalist design
- Made in USA
- Slim fitting
- The collar is floppy when unzipped.
The Wild Things Epic Halfzip windshirt is my favorite piece of clothing for trail running and backpacking. Strap it down to the outside of my pack and off I go. Sure, there are lighter windshirts available, but I really like Epic fabric and the cut.
The slim fit is perfect for running and is not bulky under a pack. The minimalist design cuts the weight down and there is less stuff to deal with or worry about failing. There are no pockets, which I like. The velcro adjustment at the wrists are all you need to find a good fit.
The only downside is if it's unzipped the collar is very floppy, but that is to be expected with such a lightweight/minimal shirt.
Another important factor is that it is made in USA in Conway, N.H. If you are ever tromping around the White Mountains stop by their store and poke around. You will probably leave with something.
