REI Men's Vaporush Windstopper Pants

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Comfortable soft-shell hiking pants that do what they say—keep wind and even light rain and most snow off your legs and keep warm in cooler temps while also allowing venting in warmer (but not hot) weather. Durable, comfortable, and can even pass for decent pants in town stops. Features REI documents the following features, and I have provided my comments on each alongside, with more explanation in the appropriate section. Fully windproof and highly breathable, GORE WINDSTOPPER fabric is water… Full review

Patagonia Men's Houdini Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Light, packable, and all so versatile, the Patagonia Houdini is an excellent wind jacket and perhaps a little bit more. I use the jacket as it was intended, as a wind jacket. But it is one of those go anywhere pieces of gear because it is so packable and weighs only 3.6 ounces. It folds into its own pocket and ends up being smaller than a can of soda. The fit is a slim athletic fit. The hood is adjustable and the cuffs have elastic to ensure a snug fit. The jacket does a decent job of remaining… Full review

Patagonia Men's Houdini Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Ultra lightweight, packable, minimalist jacket. I bought this jacket to throw in a small pack, along with an ultralight thermal layer (Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer Down Jacket) for long rock climbing routes. The two together add a lot of warmth in a tiny package for a combined weight of 10 oz. I find that I am likely to throw it my pack or pocket whenever I am unsure of the wind or temperatures I will encounter—you don't even know you are carrying it. But the single horizontal chest pocket… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Men's Transition Zip T

rated 5 of 5 stars I would echo all of these reviews. This is the best piece of three- season gear I own! I would echo all of these reviews. This is the best piece of three-season gear I own. Its weight and performance are unmatched by anything else. The only thing it lacks is that it's not waterproof, but pair with a light rain jacket and a short sleeve technical t-shirt and you can be prepared on the trail for almost anything from 40-80 degrees rain or shine. Paired with a long sleeve baselayer and a vest and you… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Men's Ghost Lite Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars An excellent packable windbreaker that will stuff into ANY empty space you have in your pack. I love my Mountain Hardwear Ghost Lite Jacket! At 6' and 210 lbs I'm able to get into the Large very comfortably. It fits without being "fitted". Clearly, since they've kept the weight to 3 oz, there isn't any "extra" material.   This jacket stuffs itself into its own right-hand pocket and winds up being about the size of a kid's pencil bag. After that, it will easily stuff into any available space you… Full review

Patagonia Men's Houdini Pullover

rated 4 of 5 stars A very light, yet effective wind shirt for many uses. It is durable and comfortable to wear, and it packs down to the size of a stick of deodorant. The Patagonia Houdini Pullover is a simple, yet effective wind shirt that is very useful in many situations. It fits true to size, and I love wearing it with a Patagonia Snap-T fleece underneath, because the two garments have very similar styles and sizes that feel as though they were made to go together. The shirt does not have many ways to adjust it,… Full review

Marmot Men's Ether DriClime Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars The Marmot Ether Driclime Wind Jacket is just about the only piece of my outdoor clothes closet that always gets packed—year round. It’s a great wind jacket that keeps the chill off in a solid breeze through major wind gusts, is water repellent, and breathes well while providing some insulation. The perfect “not too hot – not too cold” shell for my metabolism on most trips throughout the year. Light and quick-drying, it’s difficult to find a reason to leave it behind. When Trailspace… Full review

Montane Minimus 777 Pull-On

rated 4 of 5 stars The Montane Minimus 777 is a 3-layer waterproof breathable jacket that eschews weight by using 7 denier fabrics for the membrane, inner and outer face (hence the name). It is spartan by design, but at only 4.7 oz still packs a hood, elasticized hem and cuffs, singular chest pocket, and water resistant zip. It would be best for trail running, thru hikers, or UL backpackers. FIT *For reference I am 6 foot, 170 lbs and received a men's large (42" chest, 34" waist). The fit of this jacket is spot on.

Swix Cyclon Packable Wind Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars This little beauty can be scrunched up small enough to fit into almost any pocket. Does a nice job of keeping out the wind chill factor. I've had this ultra lightweight wind jacket for some time, but only in the last month has the weather been cold and windy enough to use it. The Cyclon jacket is constructed of 100% 20 denier Nylon with a DWR (durable water repellent) coating to make it wind resistant. Weighing only 4 3/4 ounces the jacket can be rolled into such a small size that I can stow in… Full review
