Hearkening back to the Adventure Tech Line Windshirt, we were quite intrigued to see Propper start offering a great lightweight and low profile windshirt that doesn't break the bank. On the rare occasion that a storm breaks out in Phoenix and I have a morning run scheduled, I break out my windshirt, which offers water resistant protection and covers up all the parts that matter. I don't get soaked and despite its thin layer, the windshirt provides great insulation to trap in body heat.
The new Propper Packable Windshirt provides a full zip closure design with a DWR finish for water resistance. A full hood packs away into a zip enclosure when not needed and elasticized cuffs provide a snug fit at the wrist. A self contained pouch allows you to pack away the windshirt when not in use for a low profile in your pack or simply placed in a cargo pocket with an easy grab loop for your grasping pleasure. This is a great option for any long term trek when you need that added layer of weather protection that you can pack away and forget about it till the weather strikes and you need it most. The Packable Windshirt is currently available in Olive, Coyote, and Black and is now being offered for a great price point at PredatorBDU.com.
