Weighing just 3.7 ounces, the breathable, wind-resistant Salomon Men’s Men’s Fast Wing Hoodie is ideal for trail running or any aerobic activity that demands weight be kept to a minimum.
Perfect for trail runners, fast packers or any on the go adventurer, the Salomon Fast Wing Hoodie provides minimalist wind protection and breathability at a weight of just three ounces. And it compresses down small enough to throw in your pack or even your pocket. Let’s take a closer look at its fit and features.
The jacket’s double rip stop fabric is incredibly light weight, highly wind resistant, but also breathable. Salomon also builds in some under arm venting that allows warm air to escape as well. This is definitely an athletic piece and anticipate movement. So you have got a nice snug fit. You are really not going to be wearing much underneath this except, you know, a t-shirt, a tech tee, the lowest profile of base layers. Obviously you can wear other pieces over top of it.
In keeping with that light weight athletic cut, you do not have adjustability here at the cuffs. But you do have a little bit of elastic here that snugs those cuffs and keeps the jacket fitting nicely there at the sleeves. Very similar treatment on the hem as well. So the elastic is really just here on the sides. It is intended that this jacket pull in and fit closely there at the hips and it does so because of that elasticity.
It is a hooded piece, so you have got some nice wind protection there if and when you choose to pull the hood up and over. Interesting treatment to show off underneath here. There is a nice little bit of mesh fabrication here hat makes that hood fit very nicely, but not in a way that is hot or that would cause you to overheat here. It also then creates some shaping to that brim. So you have got some interesting protection there from the sun, again, from the wind as well.
There is just one single pocket here on the Fast Wing Hoodie. It is set high on the chest. It is does have that zippered access. It keeps valuables close at hand. You could put a phone. You could put an mp3 player in there. There is a pass through. Basically you could run a headphone through it. Keep the electronics completely protected.
That pocket doubles as a stuff sack so you can put the entire jacket inside that pocket. You end up with this small, little package that is easy to throw in a pack and will even fit, literally, in your pocket.
The Salomon Fast Wing Hoodie, minimalist wind proof protection that is absolutely perfect for trail runners, for fast packers or any ounce counting adventurer.
