The Vital Windshell Hoody really is a vital piece of kit for a day up the hills. Whether you're moving fast and the weather is foul or you're stopping for lunch and require some wind protection, the Windshell is your ideal jacket. 

Rab use their Hyperlite Nylon outer for the Windshell, providing complete windproofing and a high level of water resistancy when the weather turns nasty. Since this fabric is made from 100% nylon, it is also incredibly durable for the weight and will dry exceptionally quickly if you get well and truly drenched. 

An elasticated hood with a stiffened peak keeps the rain away from your face, while rear volume adjustment caters for a range of differently sized users. Two YKK zipped pockets allow you to hide your hands away in cold wind and an integrated stuff sack means you can pack the Windshell down to almost nothing and stuff it into the bottom of your pack. 

The Windshell is one of those jackets which is ideal for everything; it's a great outer shell which is more breathable than a full waterproof, it's perfect for moving fast, stopping for lunch, even wearing to town. It just works.

Regular Fit: Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting garments that are bang in the middle. The middle is good.

Relaxed Fit: Drapes loosely on the body, baggy fit.

1Chest

Run the tape around the fullest part of your chest, the tape should be just below the arm pit and over the shoulder blades whilst horizontal to the floor.

2Waist

Measure around your natural waist as show in the diagram

3Inseam

Measure your inside leg from crotch to ankle blone keeping your leg straight: not as easy as it sounds, you could take a pair of trousers that you already own, that fit you well, and measure from the crotch to the bottom of the leg.

4Sleeve

This is a bit more tricky! Measure from the top of your spine (at the bottom of your neck) to your elbow and on the your wrist

5Arm

You should place the beginning of the measuring tape behind your shoulder, and feed it out following your arm making sure to pass both the elbow joint and the wrist, as pictured. You should take the measurement at the point where you would like the sleeve to end. This is usually just past your wrist.

    I bought this great lightweight windshell for hill running and when I need a bit of protection if the weather changes during a hike. Packs up in its own pocket and crams in a bum bag or pack for when you need it. The only complaint is the sleeves are a little long for me, but that might be a bonus on a chilly day! Neat hood with a peak stiffener so you can adjust it easily, small cape popper, so if it gets warm and you haven't the time to pack it away you can undo it and just wear it on your shoulders and two decent size zip pockets. All in all a very handy bit of kit.

    Excellent customer service. Really detailed easy to understand product descriptions on the Trekitt website, and gear reviews on the Trekitt YouTube channel made it so easy to choose the right backpack for me.

    Amazing service! Very helpful in regards sizing and what most matched my needs, despite this being done over the internet. YouTube videos of products being examined are very useful also. Would definitely use again, very fast and efficient delivery. Brilliant! Highly recommended!
