Arc'teryx Squamish Hoody First Look

I finally have a windshirt! After the discussion over on Martin's blog I decided it is time to get one, and I settled on the Arc'teryx Squamish Hoody. It is 141 g on my scale (I reckon I can get it a bit lower still after pimping it), for a size S. I was wearing it on my daytrips around town and to the beach, and also when cycling it is making a good figure thus far.

A nice hood.

Full zip and a front pocket.

It has a good DWR as I was able to test during the occasional thunderstorm we had, and the hooded brim is good to keep rain and wind out of my face. Drawcords at the hem, elastic cuffs with velcro and the front pocket round it out. It will be my main jacket on the next couple of trips, accompanied by an umbrella for those really wet days =) Review in the autumn, but thus far I am very happy with it.

And it is black!
