This hoodie is the perfect companion for those grey-sky-may-drizzle days all too common in the PNW. The fit is perfect for just a baselayer, a t-shirt or a fleece underneath. Would not recommend it for light steady rain as there's no taped seams, this piece is minimalistic and it does an amazing job at that. I'm 5'5" 140lb with short arms and the small fits me great. The quality is like anything else you'd expect from the folks at Beyond, top notch. No it isn't made in the US, but one of the reasons I'm a Beyond fan is their commitment to fair labor practices, I have full confidence in their TAA's.
Bought a K4 Ventum Ultralight Hoodie for my bud for his birthday. He reports that it fits true to size, is mad comfortable and packs super light. Full zippered pockets in the front, tech fabric, stitching and zippers are all very high quality. Perfect weight for slightly chilly windy nights on the trail or in the city.
Durable. Lightweight and breathable. I searched long and hard for a lightweight softshell that had the ability to cycle moisture and still hold up to trail use. This jacket met all the criteria and then some.
As the weather has warmed this spring, I transitioned from my Rig Softshell to a light fleece on my morning hikes with my dog. Then, though it wasn’t yet “t-shirt weather”, the fleece became too warm for me and I was stuck! So, I decided to give the Ventum Ultralight Hoodie a try. It really is great! It fits great and is a thin layer that cuts the wind yet breathes! It’s perfect by itself and for layering. It also can be stuffed into its built in stuff sack to throw in a pack. As a bonus, I found myself wearing it out on a drizzly day and it kept me bone dry! It’s such a great jacket that I ordered another to give to my dad for Father’s Day!! Another GREAT Beyond Product!!!! Thanks!
Piece is not as ultralight as the title suggests. it is in between a softshell and a true ultralight. its super comfortable and stretchy. As other reviewers have noted, the lack of arm/wrist velcro or other closures is puzzling, hence the 4 stars. Water resistant and windproof as advertised. I ordered a Medium and am 6'1" and 160lbs, fit was good, not super tight and also not too baggy. length was just below waist. Can layer underneath if needed.
