Focus LT Hoody

rated 3 of 5 stars I really like this jacket, don't get me wrong, and it works well most of the time. That said I wore it last fall in a light snow as a top layer and even though I did not feel excessively warm when I stopped to pull off a layer I found the jacket as wet on the inside as it was on the outside. Once it got wet inside it was game over. Today I was hiking in a light mist, temps in the mid thirties and again the jacket was wet on the inside, actually soaking while the the DWR seemed to be doing its job… Full review

Apoc Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars The Holy Grail is Found: After using Gore-Tex Pro Shell, Performance Shell, and Paclite products for many years, and never having been very satisfied with their breathability, especially in warmer weather, Polartec's NeoShell fabric is a welcome addition to the mountaineering market.

Shift LT Hoody

rated 5 of 5 stars Ultralight but minimalistic. 12 ounces but looks rugged enough to withstand moderate abuse. Blue looks great. No side pockets— one napolean pocket. Jacket is full cut and will accept layers. Get it. Full review

I received the Westcomb Focus LT Hoody (referred to as the Focus for the rest of the review) as a test item through the Trailspace Review Corps in the early part of January 2013. The Focus… Full review

Mirage Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars A wee bit on the heavy side, but the best hardshell I had in my whole life. I really don't know what is wrong with the previous reviewer. I had the Mirage Jacket for about two years now. I used it for mountain climbing, skiing, and for my work as a cameraman. I used this jacket in pouring rain, in freezing temperatures, in hot and moist temperatures, while doing strenuous exercise, and for sleeping on the floor and still can't find much fault with it. GoreTex jackets often feel uncomfortably moist… Full review
