Alpine Start Hoody - Women's - Fall 18 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best unnecessary jacket you'll own I was hesitant to purchase this since who really needs an extra jacket that's just for light, cool weather hiking, running or a quick drop off the kids at school? Well, you do. I love this thing and have worn it on multiple occasions. Great for cool mornings in summer fall or spring when you just need a little layer until it warms up. Soft, agile and has a flattering fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase. Originally bought for next season's ski season as a light windbreaker for the uptrack. However, it's been getting great use in spring biking season. I'm 5'2", 115lbs and the XS has plenty of room for a baselayer without restricting shoulder movement. I have since purchased a second in a different colour, and my friend tried it on and bought one too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential Piece I’m 100% pleased with my Alpine Start Hoody. It’s light weight and compactable and I t protects me from the Oklahoma wind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediate Go-To Jacket The fit and feel of this jacket is so perfect, it went immediately to the top of my pile for both running and mountain biking. Great stretch, breathable, packs down super small. The light grey is so sharp and goes with everything. Held up through a good digger - no trace of the fall once I brushed the dirt off. Considering buying the hoodless version as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for running!!! I actually have 2 of this jacket, just for colour variation... the fit is slim, the material is light and stretchy, and does not feel "too much like plastics" against my skin. Perfect for running, just add a smart 1st layer. Hood is nice to have as a backup. Wind and rain resistant for some hours on the trail.
