Just had the opportunity to test this 'true' windshirt out on Red Rocks during several windy and cold days. Outstanding mobility, protection and durability. Huge fan of OR to begin with, but just another example of them going the extra mile here. Was impressed how little it snagged on approach and how well it protected against the harsh winds, yet was so supple on a technical route. Cheers.

Well the American Obesity thing continues to affect my shoe size, pant size and shirt size. I guess I am shrinking! Anyway, OR is still making the best tech alpine climbing shirt in the biz, but the sizes have grown. At 150lbs, I am clearly a small now. Even considering it goes over another shirt as a pull over. is now offering a new color compared to everybody only having black for the longest time, which of course sucks on sun baked routes. I would not buy a black climbing shirt. The whole idea of this product is you can't get too hot in it (unless it is black), as it protects you from the wind or light rain.
