When you are literally running up the hill with skis on you have to dress light. But, what happens when you hit that exposed, windy ridge? There is no time to take off your pack and fumble for your jacket. This is where the Flash Anorak comes in. The amazing Flash Anorak is unlike any other shell on the market‚stored in a waistband with a cut out back to fit around your pack! This ultralight windshell is carried in a pocket that attaches to its own lightweight elastic belt. When things cool off, unfurl the anorak and pull it on without removing your pack! The shell is attached at the waist to prevent flapping and gives excellent protection from wind and even a light drizzle. When no longer needed, simply take off the shell and stuff it back in the pocket without removing your pack . This jacket is a favorite with anyone moving fast in the high country.

It was quick service. I ordered my backpack and wind breaker and got it a day later. It helps the store is only 2 hours away. However time was a concern because my wife and I had planned on using the gear in the Father Dyer Race the next weekend. Which we did. Also the pod casts are great. Thanks for including a note about it.
This jacket is incredibly versatile. I used this on the Benedict 100-average 16 miles of backcountry covered each day. I started each day with this on over a soft-shell and it kept me warm down to 0 deg. When I warmed up, I stuffed it in the waist pack and didn۪t even slow down. never took out my Gortex jacket.
Excellent for intended purpose. This jacket is for racing, mild weather and moving fast when consequences are low.
don't love the jacket but it is helpful when wearing a backpack. thanks
