Pros:

Really lightweight, great resistance to strong winds and harsh conditions and top quality materials and construction. We also enjoyed the glow-in-the-dark, removable velcro logo.
 

Cons:

This item is great as an outershell but it does not provide any extra padding or insulation. For cold conditions it is best to layer it with a fleece or sweater underneath.
 
Verdict

Overall we find this softshell hoodie to be extremely well constructed, with top class materials and a great addition for an all-weather adventure trip. On the downside, the price tag is quite steep and it needs to be layered with something else under cold conditions.

Battle the elements with the Stealth Hoodie LT, a durable, all weather, all season softshell. Highly adaptive and designed to withstand harsh climates. This technically advanced jacket perfectly combines the impermeable nature of a hardshell with the comfort and breathability of a softshell.

The fully seam taped construction of the Stealth Hoodie LT provides elevated performance in severe or unpredictable conditions. The abrasion-resistant nylon face guards against damage while the heavy duty elbow reinforcements resist wear. For additional protection against the elements, a full-length windflap prevents cold air from passing through the main zipper. The pocket array gives you multiple storage options, including D-rings in the chest and upper arm pockets to dummycord your gear, keeping it both handy and secure.

The Stealth Hoodie LT uses fully seam taped construction and Italian made RiRi water resistant zippers chosen for their durability and ease of use. With a refined, tailored fit that eliminates excess bulk yet still allows for easy layering, this jacket is designed to conquer all.

Specifications:

  • Swiss-made Schoeller® textiles
  • Rugged, Weatherproof Design
  • Welded, Reinforced Elbows
  • Single Underarm Panel with Pit Zips
  • Aero Hood Design with Roll-Up Flap
