The light­est of all on test, the min­i­mal weight of the Inov-8 Windshell re­ally is im­pres­sive. We were amazed that such a light­weight fab­ric still pro­vides great pro­tec­tion, but with a weight­less shell feel that also of­fered plenty of breatha­bil­ity. The roll-away hood is a use­ful fea­ture, yet even on runs with the hood out we didn’t no­tice any ma­jor flap­ping. Al­though elas­ti­cated at the top, the hood didn’t stay on our head for long while run­ning, even with the jacket zipped all the way up. The jacket eas­ily and quickly packs away in its own pocket so saves vi­tal room in your run back­pack. The elas­ti­cated sleeves with thumb holes and bot­tom hem pre­vent any ma­jor move­ment, but this did cause the jacket to bil­low in the mid­dle and it didn’t sit flush to our body. In terms of wa­ter-re­sis­tance, light rain beaded in drops on the jacket and didn’t soak through. It’s also avail­able in red and or­ange.
