Premium Packable Protection
Whether it's an unexpected round of blustery gusts or a half-cloudy day of fickle drizzles, the Ventum Ultralight K4 Jacket has your back at a moment's notice. Wind- and water-resistant protection wards off light weather, and a self-stowing pocket provides compact storage and speedy pop-it-open access.
Exceptionally light construction combines with a left-hand stow pocket to allow the entire hoodie to pack down into itself for easy, compact storage when not in use (or when you need a quick pillow).
Stay comfortable and dry through chilling breezes and intermittent showers with wind-resistant protection and a durable water-repellent (DWR) finish.
Lightweight stretch-blend fabric with 4-way stretch and articulated elbows ensures ease of movement.

This jacket has a great balance of comfort, breathability, and protection from changing conditions. I use it as an outer layer with a thin base layer while hiking and working in what I'd call grey weather, that space right around freezing with precipitation. If the temperature drops I can fit an active insulation layer comfortably underneath. Otherwise, it's a stretchy athletic fit, which I find well suited for climbing, and hiking.
This is a really versatile layer. Great for most chilly damp days, and anything short of full on rain.
Great Light weight jacket. Well made!
I ordered a medium and it's a medium. Hem and cuffs fit well and overall the quality is great. The material is the best part; it's like a windbreaker softshell. Comfortable enough for a quick trip to the store or a hike in the woods. I wore this last weekend in the woods and it kept me dry during a couple of quick rains. But when it rained hard for a half hour or so it did soak through the hood and shoulders. Great jacket for what it is and the price.
I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality and fit.
