Durable Water Repellant
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the perfect lightweight windshell This is my favorite piece for trail running in the alpine and multi-pitch climbing. It's extremely lightweight and wind resistant. Due to the fact that it can be packed down into it's own chest pocket and has an attachment point, it is small enough to take along in your running hydration pack or clipped to the back of your harness. It's a great summer windshell and is water resistant so can hold it's own in a light rain shower. However this is not a waterproof jacket so will not stand up in a downpour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Update! I had the previous version of this jacket, but when I saw the newly updated version in orange I had to order it. Sometimes updates leave me disappointed, but in this case Arcteryx took a decent ultralight jacket and made it perfect. I love the new fabric. It drapes much nicer, has a more substantial feel without being heavier, and moving the single pocket to the chest instead of the waist was a great change. I appreciate the velcro tabs on the sleeves, and the fit and length of the jacket is excellent. It looks good over just a light baselayer, yet has room enough for me to layer under it. This will be my go-to jacket for day hikes, backpacking and cycling. Since it's so portable, it will probably go with me almost everywhere else too. I would give this 10 stars if I could!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hiking Companion This jacket is awesome, especially on days when you're not really sure what the weather is going to throw at you. It is lightweight and totally wind resistant. It is a minimalistic jacket with only one small chest pocket but it holds an iPhone and keys perfectly. My favourite feature though is the fact that the whole jacket shoves into the tiny chest pocket and becomes the size of a little football! It is the perfect carry along as there is a loop so you can clip the jacket onto your belt loop, water bottle, etc while hiking. A perfect piece for summer hiking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good with a base layer Bought this for my girlfriend in Mango Tango and she really likes it. She keeps it in the back of her car for her after school (she's a teacher) bike rides. I also got her three different weights of base layers to wear under it so that she can properly tailor her layering to the weather conditions - two Phase (one thinnish long-sleeve zip-neck, and one very light tee) and a Rho AR zip-neck for colder conditions. She wears the Squamish Hoody all the time, and she likes the hoody's brim, and the easily adjustable sleeves (she is very lanky). Based on this, I would recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds Up to Mountain Rain, I didn't know about this piece of gear until I researched, but it's like a dream come true. I bought this for my wife before our trip to mountains in Spain. It rained on us while we were hiking in the Picos de Europa, and she was happy and commented on how much she loved this piece of kit. It's not fully water repellant, so you'll need a good insulating layer underneath to keep you warm if you do get wet. It packs tiny, so it's easy to bring traveling. I also wear my men's version on cold airplanes, and some of the colors are so nice the jacket looks chic or suave enough to wear between jaunts in the mountains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight wind jacket. I mainly used it for running & hiking but it does have great strech for climbing. The jacket is a great piece to take out for wind protection on warmer mountain days, and with the right layering you could also take it for other days, e.g. on a dry but cooler day with a warmer base layer, gloves, hat... It is indeed lightweight and when it was stuffed in it's stow pocket, I could carry it clipped on to my water bottle, belt loop, or pack. I got the color Tiger Lily, which is a nice orange, and as I am often solo liked the bright color. A number of people commented on how much they liked this one when I was out with it. The adjustable hem drawcord is good to cynch in the jacket and stop the draft. The cuffs are easy to adjust (even when your fingers are frozen, or you can easily grab them with your teeth), although the hard cuffs scatched my skin each time I wiped my face with my sleeves, but maybe I am just a softie. I have to admit that I did not find the chest stow pocket, only the one side stow pocket, but that was enough for me. The only real drawback is that it was hard to cynch the hood in without covering my eyes partially, but I have a small head and I assume the hood needs be a certain size to fit a helmet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One is not enough! (...and: It's a windshirt - not a rain jacket) I own two. I always pack one - if I'm not already wearing it out the door. I've jabbered 5 friends into buying one (and two of them have already gone on to purchase an extra one).I gifted one to my SO and she uses and abuses it near every day. One saved one of those jabbered buddIes' butts when caught out in a storm on a summmers' day-hike up a Swiss mountain. One will make the cut on an upcoming SERE course (I can wear any one jacket as an instructor). One review doesn't do this jacket justice--read them all! Over a base layer, over a fleece, or over an insulating puffy midlayer, this jacket has a dynamic effect on the level of thermal protection provided by whatever I happen to have on when wind begins to degrade my comfort--and this at a negligble penalty of weight & pack-volume, restriction of movement, or claminess. With dynamic I mean, per example, that when worn over a fleece in a situation turned to cold because of picking up winds, putting on the Squamish stabilizes the situation and comfort returns (i.e. I stop feeling cold). At the same time I can keep moving without getting clammy, noisy, or bulky. Membrane'd shells bring on clamminess much sooner, imho. I never wear mid-layer puffies when moving, and for the past year I've relied solely on the Squamish over a base layer and 100-weight fleece to stay comfortable when moving in cold weather (down to -15C). When I am stationary at day's end I'll change into a dry base layer, don a mid-layer puffy or two (most commonly a Cerium LT and Rab's Xenon)...and throw the Squamish over it all. Somehow the thin extra layer of the windshirt really ups the insulative Shazam of those puffies beneath - particularly as pertains to down midlayers with 'breathable' shell fabrics (which is how I like them to be built). I find this windshirt to be a true 4-season utility. I'm sure nobody wants to guarantee its longevity when worn for long stretches with a heavy backpack but I've worn my 2014 purchase for over 200 days of which 40+ were under a 15+kg backpack load and it's still in one solid wind-cutting piece. Much of the above certainly applies to windshirts in general but the Squamish has found a really nice nexus when it comes to providing 'breathability' and! wind resistance. The Velcro cuff adjusters add so much functionality in the field that I could never imagine gram-weenyimg them away. What could be improved? Well, if the Squamish could keep its current specs w/ its superb breathable wind-killing functionality , while also being well as levitating me over any glacial streams I would otherwise have to ford--yeah, that would be one joyous day. Until then, I'd consider this a top-spec and solid windshirt...and just that. If I want to stay dry when it rains (be it a prolonged hazy drizzle or a 2-minute Thai downpour) then I pull out something with a membrane. Imho, any jacket relying just on DWR to repel rain, will after a few rounds of use, at best only buy me enough time to quickly duck in under a nearby roof, spruce, or membrane If I want to avoid getting soaked. That will do just fine until nano-tech changes the game. BTW, the Squamish dries fast when wetted out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lightweight, nice colors Packs down nice and small -- light jacket that I like to throw into the brain of my pack for climbs or take running on cold days. I am one of those people that wish it had little pockets for my hands on days that it happens to be rainy and really cold and I don't have my actual rain jacket.

I live near Boston, MA and I plan to use this jacket in the fall, winter and spring for walking. I'll have extra small or small fleece vests and jackets and maybe another layer which I would wear under a wind jacket. Should I buy a medium or a large?

Asked by: Huggeleh
Thanks for the question! I would get one size up from your normal size. So I think a Medium will be good. I hope this helps!
