A super lightweight and crushable windbreaker was the objective with this design. Yet, we also wanted something with excellent utility that could provide some quick protection through an unpredictable spring season. Borrowing from the classic nylon windbreakers of our youth we added some much needed utility to this design, including 3 large zipper pockets and mesh breathe panels, we’ve upgraded every possible element. Our water resistant ripstop shell fabric is fashioned with a dual function center front closure with 2-way molded zipper and subtle 3-snap option to close on the fly. Action pleats behind the elbows and skinny adjustable hook+loop tab cuffs add to the functionality of the piece. The design carries forth the shirt collar shape of the original except we’ve reconstructed the zipper placement to allow for the collar to be zipped completely thru to protect around the neck, not just the base of the throat.
