The North Face nailed it with this piece, an uber-packable, ultralight jacket made from 100% recycled body fabric. TNF’s Flyweight Hoodie offers features for days in a minimal package: With wind permeability of less than 10 CFM (that’s really good) and a DWR water-resistant coating, you’ll stay clear of the elements, while optimized venting at the back yoke keeps body heat and moisture from building up inside. The full-zip front and comfy micro-elastic hood make this jacket easy to throw on in a flash, and it’s just as easy to stow when things clear up, thanks to a pocket storage system that zips up into a tiny, pack-worthy pouch you’ll hardly notice at all. At under 8oz, the Flyweight Hoodie offers all the protection you need in less-than-ideal weather with none of the bulk.
