Great buy!
April 21, 2013

I recently bought this Patagonia Solar Wind Jacket to replace another windstopper jacket from another company. The quality was excellent and the fit perfect. I wore it out on the shores of our nearby lake on a windy day and was totally happy with the wind protection. The jacket is also very warm for being so incredibly light. It was a great buy.

Best jacket I own
December 21, 2011

I recently bought this jacket in Grey and M size and it's a perfect fit. I have worn it everyday since I got it. I commute to work and wear it over my shirt and tie or even suits and it has served well for my everyday use. It's not too warm, just perfect. I live in Boston and I would recommend this jacket to anyone that is looking for a durable everyday jacket. I haven't used it on the slopes yet but will do so next week and am sure it will serve it's purpose.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Wind protection light as a feather
October 26, 2012

Again the first thing is patagonia's top notch quality! The jacket is so light, you hardly know you wearing it. It's true to fit, but can still layer a light fleece jacket underneath for the colder days. Perfect for daypack trips or multi day backpack trips.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

This is a great jacket. It is windproof, highly water-resistant (though not thoroughly waterproof), lightly insulated, and lightweight. I don't think it's meant to be a hiking jacket (though one could use it for that). For me it functions as a jacket I can wear while walking outside or doing errands in anything but a downpour or temperatures below 20 degrees fahrenheit. I'm not saying I'd choose this jacket to stand at a bus-stop for 45 minutes in 20 degree weather; but I can easily run errands and walk for some time outside in such temperatures. The insulation is thin and light but with the windproof shell it is very warm indeed. It is more conservatively styled but to me that makes it more dressy (for my purposes a good thing). And it weights very little. I can wear this in any temperature from 20-50 degrees without hauling out the winter coat. The lining makes it easy to put on over any kind of layering and the material is quiet. Great jacket.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, dressier look, very light
