It finally got warm enough to wear my Whistler, and I’m really enjoying it. It’s a great top layer, cutting wind and with enough (and easily accessed pockets. I also wore it out in a light rain, and it’s resistant enough that I stayed dry for a 15 minute walk with my infant daughter.
Also, happy to have something that packs down easily so that I can have it on hand “just in case” when I’m out (ok, that’s a lot less right now with social distancing, but that will change eventually...)
All good, fits perfectly and keeps the wind off a treat.
Not had to try to fix it yet, nice colour red.
Unfortunately I missed the deadline to preorder this, so paid more for it than I had hoped to, but so far I am liking it. I have been able to use it once since purchase, in moderate rainfall on the beach in Oregon. Layered over a Patagonia Better Sweater, I was warm and dry enough to feel good about my purchase. The DWR held up for quite a while until the rain got heavier, but even when the jacket "soaked through," I still didn't get drenched and the water never made it all the way through my Patagonia. The jacket dried very quickly, and functioned very well as a windbreaker! I have not had to test the puncture healing yet, as I did not catch any snags on my adventure. I will be using this as a light spring jacket, as my cycling jacket, a light to moderate precip shell, and for everything in between. The packable aspect is a huge plus for me as I invest in high quality things I can pack down small to easily take camping with me on the motorcycle, or in a lightweight hiking hands free day pack. I am 5'7" average build and own the women's camper jacket in a medium, and the windbreaker in a small is perfect, just roomy enough to layer over anything else I wear, but not so roomy as to look bulky...just right for a windbreaker! I bought the green because it is my favorite color and matches my camper jacket and my puffy kachula. So, despite missing the sale I am very happy with my investment into this windbreaker, and would highly recommend it as an investment to anyone on the fence about it.
It’s a really useful windbreaker and the material is perfect and obviously is as heavy as a feather. So it’s the best option that you will have for any kind of travel.
I really love the jacket. Light weight looks good and does what the specs say; water resistant, breathable etc.
If I had a problem with the jacket, it would be the tightness around the chest. I am built like the preverbal 'brick s**thouse'. Even with the XXL size, it is very tight. If I need/want to layer clothes underneath, more than a t-shirt makes it too tight.
This would potentially cut out earning it in colder weather.
Other than that, it is fantastic. 5 Star!
It is most suitable for the cold season if it is hot and cloudy if it is sunny
It is easy towear it when Iwear it compactly if it is hot and is useful
Enjoyed it. Yet to really wear it and tryit out yet.
This jacket is exactly what I was looking for. It is small, light weight, keeps me warm and is windproof. During the winter period I wear this jacket more or less every day and was so happy about it. I can really recommend this jacket
