The seriously good lookin’ Westcomb Switch LT Hoodie is quite possibly all the ultralight technical shell you’ll ever need. It’s made from PolarTec NeoShell, the latest and greatest in 100% waterproof, highly breathable fabrics. The appointments, designed for hardcore outdoors situations, will work out a pleasure in more casual conditions as well. Two large Napoleon pockets offer ample, easy-access storage, and there is a bicep pocket and an interior media pocket. The fixed 3-point adjustable hood can fit over a helmet, or cinch in for a snug head fit. Waist and hood can be cinched closed and released with one hand. There’s a high collar with Velour-lined chin-guard, Velcro cuff closures, and underarm venting zippers for quick cooldowns. The seams are micro-taped for waterproofing and flexibility, and 20 stitches-per-inch allows for a lighter, stronger construction. Watertight YKK AquaGuard Vislon zippers eliminate the need for storm flaps, and are laminated rather than sewn in place for more clean, lightweight waterproofing. Sleeves are articulated, with integrated pocket areas, permitting unrestricted movement in any direction. And it is light: 440 grams (15.4 ounces). In , , , , and . Made entirely at Westcomb in Vancouver, Canada. $430.
