Prepare for unexpected rainstorms by carrying the Specter LT Hoodie jacket from Westcomb. It's ultralight and compressible, so it can be stashed away in your daypack and ready at a moment's notice.

  • Lightweight 3-layer eVent® ripstop nylon ensures minimal weight with maximum protection; reinforced elbows and forearms provide no-compromise durability
  • eVent fabric has a unique membrane structure that allows sweat vapor to escape to the outside of the fabric in 1 easy step
  • No matter how hard you work, overheating is highly unlikely due to this Direct Venting™ technology
  • And, because you remain dry on the inside, the likelihood of an uncomfortable, post-exercise chill is eliminated
  • Attached storm hood with 3-point adjustment is roomy enough to wear over a helmet, yet cinches down comfortably without one, and allows unhindered vision in all directions
  • High collar with softly lined chin guard provides comfort and protection from the elements
  • 1-hand-adjustable hem drawcord is accessed through the zip hand pockets; rip-and-stick adjustable cuffs seal in warmth
  • Internal media pocket inside the Westcomb Specter LT keeps your valuables secure and dry

Westcomb Specter LT Hoodie Jacket - Men'sis rated5.0out of5by2.
Rated5out of5byfromGemGreat jacket. Probably don't even need to say more.. but I will. A Canadian gem, rare that you find an outdoor product made in North America and the build quality shows. Seams are excellent, no thread runs or bumps/folds under seam taping (which is well done, I should add). Simple design, solid front zipper that wears well, two waterresist type zippers for the pockets. Some have faulted this jacket for too few pockets - I differ on that, put the extra stuff in your pack, that's why you have it on your back. Packs down well, lining laminate holds up nicely. Overall, much nicer than many higher priced offerings.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat rain jacket!I have owned this rain jacket for two years. I backpack year around in the wet Olympic Mountains in Washington State. This jacket does a great job at helping to maintain warmth by acting as a windbreaker over my down layer during winter camping. All other seasons the jacket has performed exceptionally well in shedding rain. The pit zips are plenty large to help control body temperature/sweating during hiking. The hood has two separate strategically located draw bungies to pull it back so it is not draping too far forward and limiting your vision. The pockets are an adequate size. The zipper action is smooth and tight. The jacket is lightweight but the material seems thick so it does not roll up into a tiny bundle as would a lesser expensive and cheaper quality jacket/poncho does. I don't see that as a con though as it still stows compactly in my backpack.
