Outdoor Research Ion Pullover windshirt
Weight 3.5 oz (100 g)
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
Elastic cuff closures
The Ion Pullover may be the garment that comes closest to the illusive goal of a perfect windshirt.
