Outdoor Research Ion Pullover Windshirt (Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2005)

Outdoor Research Ion Pullover windshirt
Weight 3.5 oz (100 g)
$89.00

Windshirts abound in the 2.5 oz to 3.5 oz range but almost all have some deficiency – they don’t have a hood, the front zipper is too short to vent properly…

The Outdoor Research Ion Pullover comes in at 3.5 oz and has all the essential features:

  • A drawcord hood with a stiffened brim that will keep light rain off eyewear
  • And! A ¾ length front zipper for serious venting
  • 15D x 40D nylon fabric with a good DWR
  • Zippered Napoleon pocket
  • Good fabric breathability
  • Drawcord hem
  • Elastic cuff closures

The Ion Pullover may be the garment that comes closest to the illusive goal of a perfect windshirt.
