Zpacks Ventum Wind Shell - Men's
Amazingly light but cuts the wind and holds the heat in with a layer underneath!
Choosing the right layer for crisp spring mornings and chilly fall nights can be a challenge. Our Men's Ventum Shell is crafted to cut the breeze and trap warmth in your base layer or against your skin.
Ventum fabric strikes the right balance between cutting cold wind while still allowing enough breathability for sweat to escape when hiking on chilly mornings and evenings. Ventum fabric tests at 39.5 CFM under ASTM D-737.
It’s perfect for when a base layer alone is not enough, but insulation would make you overheat. Weighing under 2 ounces this is a must-have item for when you plan to hike in cool weather.
If you don't see your size, we also have some sizes available at a discount in our Bargain Bin while supplies last.

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.
