Designed to support you when the Other Guy Soft Shell is too much and the Asset is not enough. The Wind Cheater utilizes a 100% NylonCordura variant called Ambush. Unlike standard cordura Ambush is brushed which allows it to breathe. Soft and quiet with a Durable Water Repellant (DWR) finish, it breathes like a T-shirt, sheds wind and dries very quickly. Not a rain proof jacket, will shed some moisture thanks to the DWR coating and will dry very quickly. Great compression, a large hood that will fit over helmets (works great with the MICH 2001) and a generous cut that does not hinder you are just a few of the Wind Cheater’s features.
Standard on the WC are the low profile loop attachment attachment points for FS Cell Tags and IFF, FS standard cuff tab and an extra large bicep pocket on each sleeve. Pit zips on each arm allow for massive air flow when desired. The Wind Cheater also has a wide range of bungee/barrel lock adjustment for the hood, collar, sleeves, and tail to block out wind when desired.
The Wind Cheater is "true to fit" t-shirt size is your jacket size. If you wear a Large shirt and don't plan to layer heavily underneath go with a Large.
