A quality hoodie is great for locking in heat while out on hikes or kicking back during autumn bonfires, but the problem with a fabric hoodie is once it rains the entire article of clothing is all but useless. That is why the Westcomb Switch AP Hoody is such a valuable addition to your closet. This hoodie isn’t made from the same kind of water-logging fabric. Instead, it is made from Westcomb’s DSM 3rd generation Dyneema composite material, which acts as a protective shell. This way it blocks out wind, prevents rain from reaching your skin, and insulates your body heat.
The Westcomb Switch AP Hoody is perfect for backpacking when you need something that is easy to pack, is durable, and serves a purpose. It takes up less room than a regular hooded sweatshirt in your backpack and will keep you dry when you need it most. At its weight, it has one of the best strength-to-weight ratios on the market today.
