The weight of this jacket is incredible at 2.6 ounces for size medium, and the stuff size is of a large apple. And more impressive is what benefits you get for such weight and size. The Ultralight Wind Jacket is highly wind resistant, water resistant, very soft next to your skin, has a full zipper and chest pocket.
The jacket is highly breathable and very comfortable to wear. It layers easily over a base layer, but still has an athletic cut. It has worked great for me while trail running, hiking, backpacking and adventure racing. It looks so nice that I also wear it around town when I need just a little more warmth. The full zipper makes it much easier to get on and off than a pullover wind jacket. The chest pocket proved handy for small items.
The DWR (durable water repellent finish) kept a light rain from reaching me while trail running. The DWR is better than most and still retains a high degree of breathability. The rain just beaded up on the shell material and dripped of as I moved.
Awesome ultralight wind jacket!
