Rabused to make some cracking lightweight windshirts from Pertex Quantum and Microlight, and next year sees them them coming back with new models. Above we have the Cirrus windshirt in Pertex Quantum.
It’s frighteningly light and small packing, has long arms, a drop tail and a high collar. Adjustments come from drawcords in the collar and the rear on the hem which pulled in keeps the front flat, which is a neat idea.
The new Pertex fabrics are great, better looking and lighter. The Quantum fabric here is soft, quiet and has a silky-matt finish so it looks good as well, no multi coloured bin-liners here.
I’ve worn this a few times now and I love it, it fits my shape very well, has great articulation and it doesn’t seem to ride up through a pack hipbelt.
It’s early days, but I can see me using this a lot so I’ll come back and see how it survives the winter.
