Great piece! This one performs and can be collapsed to take up almost no spce in the pack. The material is very resillient to abrasion and grants considerable warmth for its weight-so long as you keep moving, this piece actually insulates in the trasitional seasons. The stowaway breast pocket does well for folded maps/gps/bars and the side zip allows for ease of movement. Again, this is a great active windshirt for windy wall exposure, cool hikes, and blustery bike rides. The Ferrosi performs esp. well against abrasion where other lighters pieces would just fall apart or tear. If you like this one, also check out the Hoody version for fuller coverage!
Pros : Lightweight, Good layer, Comfortable, Durable, Flexible
Cons : Short sleeves
Best Uses : ski touring, City life, Multipitch Cragging, Cragging
I've used this wind shirt several times now. I really like it for cragging and multi pitch climbing. It's lightweight and breathable. I've also been using it for spring ski touring and it work great for a lightweight layer for the uphill.
I do wish the layer would compress into a pocket to clip onto my harness
