Anyone know which synthetic hoody is the lightest on the market today?
Ideally it would be 10 ounces or less. Perhaps grid fleece or something similar to Capilene 4.
I ordered a melanzana microgrid, and it's great quality and light (< 10 oz for medium), but the fit is a bit baggy, and it's not as warm as I had hoped.
I have a Ibex indie hoody (8 oz) that I love, but I'm looking for a synthetic option so that it will dry faster as I tend to backpack in the rain often.
I also have the Patagonia R1 and OR Radiant Hybrid hoodys, which are great, but a bit heavy at just under 13 oz for a medium.
Damn....Just realizing that I'm a hoody hoarder....
