Basically I want a sweatshirt that I can wear skiing. I love skiing in a slightly baggy hoody in the spring but there are 2 problems. 1. Wind cuts through a cotton sweatshirt like its not there and you can get cold pretty quick. 2. cotton sucks when it gets wet. So to that end i'm looking for a sweatshirt like cut, wind proof, and not water proof but slightly water resistant would be nice.
Does such a thing exist?
But I'm tryin to be bigger than the bickerin
bigger than the petty name callin
under the breath talkin
rumors and labels and categorization
I'm like a struggling doctor, No patience
You want a "softshell" dude. It's a hoody made with technical materials, usually about 3-6k waterproof and usually has zippers over the kangaroo pocket. Any store like backcountry.com has a ton of them, usually $80-$150.
i love my apex for both spring riding and just wearing around town. they changed the name this year to the acid rain jacket though. same jacket just different design. i find my softshell to feel more like a jacket than a hoodie, oakley also makes some technical hoodies that wont be as stiff as the softshell material but are still wind and water resistant. i have last years called the volt but i cant remember what theyre calling this years, they have a few different ones though. they are sick as well and a little cheaper.
