Larger sizes would be great!

I'm sure I won't be able to use this jacket for what I had intended it for...

XXL in most other jackets would normally leave enough room for a light mid-layering (AT hiker hoping to use for warmish / rainier months with cooler nights), but this is too tight on me with no layers.

Love the quality, but not the size

Great Jacket

Unbelievably lightweight and packs down to the size of my first, so easily packs away in a pocket. Keeps the wind out and light showers off. Also feels much nicer against the skin than most windproof jackets. Almost feels like it has a brushed, soft finish.

As described, good product!

This jacket is comfortable is breathable and above all it is easily stored in its pocket, almost the size of a key ring. The only problem is that the package goes through Hong Kong, resident in France, I had to pay 31 euros more !

Amazing Jacket

The Gale VS is exactly what I have been looking for. It's perfect for when traveling light is essential to your trip. The feel is soft and light and cool to. Even with increased activity, the Gale VS allows excess heat to escape, but still takes the edge off a chilly morning or evening. Can't wait to see what Season comes up with next...

Hi Ehren, this is exactly what the Gale jacket is used for! We often find jackets to be too stuffy hence we created a more breathable version that offers protection when needed. Thank you fo your support! We appreciate it. -Carson, Founder

Perfect timing

I ordered two of these jackets one for the wife and one for myself as a kick starter a few months back. They showed up the day before we left for a trip to TN for some hiking in the Smoky Mountains, they jackets did not disappoint. They are SUPER thin, and breath pretty well, the light rain and fog was no match for the jacket, we stayed dry and comfy for the whole trip. I love the fact it packs down so small, I was able to keep it in my cargo pocket when I didn't need it, and easy to get it out and on when it got misty again. Looking to buy a couple more as gifts for some friends. Great product.
