Constructed from .51 oz/sqyd Ventum ripstop nylon. This fabric is tightly woven and heat calendared to cut the wind.
High quality "C0" durable water repellent (DWR). Not waterproof.
Highly wind resistant
Excellent vapor transfer / breathability - comfortable to wear, not clammy
Soft feeling - not sticky or plasticy like some other fabrics in this weight range.
Ripstop / tear resistant.
Lightest weight wind shell available with a hood and full length zipper.
The jacket packs down tiny into an integrated storage pocket.
All Zpacks gear has a two year limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. Please see our return / warranty policy.
Made in the USA.
Measure your chest using a string or cloth tape measure and go by the "Fits up to" size. The "Fits up to" size includes a few inches of wiggle room for layering. The jackets are straight cut (like Men's jackets) and do not flair out at the hips.
They are fine for women, but make sure your hips will fit the bottom hem girth, or size up. A women's specific version is also available here.

Have bought many items from ZPacks over the last four years, all great products. After recently ordering something in the incorrect size, I also learned how great their costumer service is as well. I highly recommend the ZPacks company and thank them for providing great products hard to find in most stores. D Haggard
Don’t have it yet but others I have are great
Nicely made, superlight, comfortable to wear. I'd kind of like a pocket, maybe with zipper, though that would add a tiny bit to the weight. It would nice to be able to adjust the elastic in the waist.
It is the second one because the first did become a hole. I use it very often in Iceland and I am very happy with it. Thank you a lot!
