Hello everyone, first real post here!
Quick background, I have never officially gone backpacking, and only have one real day hike under my belt. I'm an avid climber though, so that results in quite a bit of hiking and exposure to the elements.
Anyways, I just picked up an REI Windstill Jacket at their Anniversary sale for $50. It says windproof to 50mph and has a DWR finish with a hood. Full zip, two zip hand pockets, and a zip chest pocket. Anyways, I literally haven't even taken the tags off when I came on here and found out about the CAMP Magic Anorak on sale for $30. Not only is it cheaper, but my REI jacket weighs 16 ounces, and that's a hair over 3! I'm in no way trying to go super-mega-ultralight here, but 13 ounces is pretty significant.
I'm wondering if the CAMP Magic Anorak is "windproof" or just "wind resistant" and if the latter, is it enough, or has it left you desiring more from your wind layer. Any other input from owners would be greatly appreciated! I've got a trip to Yosemite in a week, and I'd love to get all my gear nailed down before the Friday flight, so fast help is greatly appreciated! Thanks a lot!
