Details

When you're agonizing over exactly which layers to bring along on any outdoor pursuit, there's one piece that will get the thumbs up every time: the Ragged Mountain Northwind Shirt. It offer superb wind resistance and even a bit of water repellency for essentially no weight or bulk. The ultra-lightweight ripstop fabric is similar to that gnarly material we use for our lightweight stuff sacks, and those things need to tolerate a ridiculous amount of abuse. Nevertheless, when you pull this windshirt on over whatever damp layer you're already wearing, you won't care how tough it is, just how much warmer you feel. Coastline runs, autumn rock climbs, pre-dawn summits, lunchtime skate-ski workouts...all these activities call for just that little extra layer. The Northwind Shirt also works well as a slippery between-layer addition so that your Merino wool pullover and your fleece jacket don't end up warring with each other and leaving you in a bunched-up, constricted, frustrated mess. 

The front zip gives you easy on/off access, and there are velcro tabs at the cuffs to cinch things down. A small zippered chest pocket is perfect for your keys, wallet, or phone--and it doubles as a stow pocket for the Northwind when you're not wearing it. The pocket zipper inverts, and there's a tab that is exposed when it's inside out so that you can clip the tiny little package to your harness, or your water bottle waist pouch, or your kayak deck fittings. And when we say it's small and light, we really mean it: at 2.5 oz., it's about equivalent to the weight of an energy bar. When you ball it up, it will fit in the palm of your hand, and tuck into any pocket. There really is no reason to leave it behind for the amount of comfort it can bring to a windy or chilly situation. Unisex sizing; machine washable.
