Familiarity: I've used it several times
True life confessions: I've never owned a windbreaker.
Perhaps that's why I find myself freezing my buns off every time I head off on a mountain jaunt in the summer. I don't think to add a jacket to my pack because 1). They are bulky & heavy and 2). I can't imagine needing any sort of protection when its 98 degrees in Salt Lake City.
This is a situation that has left me uncomfortable on MANY, nay countless, excursions. To have been gifted this Houdini pullover may be totally life changing.
IT FITS IN MY FANNY PACK.
IT WEIGHS LESS THAN A GRANOLA BAR.
IT'S WATER RESISTANT.
THE COLORS ARE BEAUTIFUL.
I didn't know that wind breakers break wind.
I mean...I had a super sweet neon one in the 80s, it was turquoise and white with purple accents. But it was lined with thick cotton and it most definitely didn't break any wind.
This thing is perfect for sporting ridgeline hikes or summiting granite peaks. It's game for anything. And it won't weigh you down. Not even a little bit.
This will be coming with me on all spring, summer, fall, outings henceforth.
