As of writing this review my experience with this piece of gear is limited. I used this on a 4 day hiking trip in the Hills of South Dakota. During the light rain we encountered I was dry the entire time and water seemed to bead right off the surface plus the was extremely breathable. During the the rest of the trip the hoodie was in my pack taking up very little room.
Perfect lightweight hoodie for hiking and everyday wear. I used it actively with a backpack hiking around, it was breathable and comfortable the entire time. Good wind and light rain protection also easy to pack and the material feels durable. I'll be using the ventum ultralight hoodie all summer. The large fits perfect with enough room to layer, I normally wear large in all tops and jackets as a 5'10" and 180lb guy.
In Michigan, it’s not out of the question to get all four seasons in a day. This jacket provides great wind protections and just enough warmth to keep you from needing another layer. Plus, it’s at home in the field or out to dinner.
Great product! Fit is snug, so account for when ordering
I normally have problems finding jackets that fit me (tall with wide shoulders/long arms/arms athletic build. Most XL jackets from other companies have too much material in the middle/belly/side area and most L jackets are too small in the arms/tight chest/too short.
My Large Long fit perfectly and was some of the best quality material out there.
