Mountain Hardwear WindStopper Tech vest

GearFlogger reviews the Mountain Hardwear WindStopper Tech vest Chicks dig me because I rarely wear underwear fleece. But when I do, I wear Mountain Hardwear's WindStopper vest. I love a good vest because by design it vents well while insulating the core, provides pockets and pads against pack straps.

MH's WindStopper Tech vest is just right in all those areas. It's got just a hint of contouring so it layers well and keeps warm air next to your body, but it doesn't hinder movement. You are free to be me. Or you. Or whatever. There are three external pockets and one internal, all zippered and the external ones flapped. The collar zips up close but doesn't throttle, and there's a zipper flap too so you avoid the cold shank in the throat experience. Oooh, prison flashback.

There are even dual hem drawcords to adjust your *ahem* girth. This is actually the second one I've owned; the other one I've owned for so long (five years) I've actually outgrown it, and I'm no spring chicken (hellloooo high calorie microbrew beer!). It's bombproof, showing no wear even after all the abuse I've heaped on it. All this for only 12 ounces, and it doubles as pajamas! Awesome.
