The Westcomb Men’s Specter LT Hoody is a hard shell for blocking rain on hike after hike. The eVent fabric is extremely lightweight for those counting grams and can be jammed into your front pouch for at-the-ready use when the skies open unexpectedly. The fixed hood adjusts at three points and is helmet-compatible. When the jacket is zipped all the way, you can tuck your face and chin into the velour-lined collar for non-chafing protection from wind and sideways-rain. Velcro at the cuffs wrap the fabric closer around your wrists to shut out drafts and rain. Sideways-rain is the worst.
FEATURES of the Westcomb Men's Specter LT Hoody

Adjustable waist system is easy to adjust with one hand; just pull the cinch-cord within the hand pockets to lock out the elements. Press the one-handed release on the outside hem to loosen the jacket back up
Internal media pocket is easy to access and keeps your MP3 player, iPhone, or other valuables secure and dry
High collar with Velour lined chin-guard provides comfort and protection from the elements for your neck and face

Rated 5 out of
Westcomb delivers again.This jacket is extremely packable and light. It's kept me dry in downpours in Italy this past month, without making me overly damp from sweat. I also have the Westcomb Apoc which breathes noticably better with the Polartech Neoshell, but when I'm pressed for space and trying to keep the weight as minimal as possible (which I often am), this is my go to rain jacket. For those who know the Apoc, it packs about 30% bigger and heavier, but the breathability of that jacket is phenomonal. All in all, the Specter is a really light, highly durable and packable jacket, while keeping with the style that I always look for in a high quality rain jacket. Definitely recommend this gear.
