Ask any experienced hiker and they will tell you that a wind shell is an essential piece within a versatile layering system. It has the ability to keep you warm and protected from cold winds, is made with a material is able to release some degree of built up moisture and heat, and doesn't take up much space in your backpack. The U.L Stretch Wind Parka is made with Ballistic Airlight rip-stop nylon to keep it lightweight, packable, and give just the right balance of breathability and wind resistance. In order to increase comfort and versatility, we've cut the fabric "on the bias," a construction technique Montbell has long used to give our sleeping bags excellent stretch and unparalleled range of movement. Despite only weighing 4.1 oz, the U.L. Stretch Wind Parka is fully featured with hand pockets, draw cord adjustment at the hem and hood, and to top it all off, this gem is treated with Montbell's proprietary durable water repellent, Polkatex®, to shed light precipitation. These features make the U.L. Stretch Wind Parka a great addition to any outdoor enthusiast's kit.

Why Wind Shells?

They ARE NOT water proof.

They ARE NOT air tight.

They DO NOT HAVE “bomber” construction.

SO WHY are they essential when trying to add performance to a layering system?

With the addition of a 2 to 5 ounce / 50 to 150 gram wind shell you can easily expand the comfort range of your clothing in high winds, cool temperatures, and light precipitation. An ultra light wind shell layer excels when counted on to prevent conductive heat loss by shielding you from chilly gusts and light precipitation. It also offers a measure of shelter from sun and pesky insects in warmer surroundings. Additionally, by utilizing air permeable fabrics wind gear can offer a small amount of “breathability” to assist in bleeding excess heat. Finally, by being simple in construction and on the fragile side the highly compressible garment fits in the palm of your hand, making it easy to include in your trail kit and ideal for most activities.
