The Specter jacket in size Medium is a little small on our model, but its design and features are evident.
Westcomb is a new Canadian company introducing a full suite of cutting edge products at ORWM08. Their Spector LT is a minimalist eVENT hooded shell jacket. It has drawcord adjustors on the hood and hem, one Napoleon pocket on the front, a dropped tail, Velcro adjustable cuffs, and a full water-resistant front zipper. The weight is 11.2 ounces (by our measurement), MSRP is $299, and it is currently available in sizes S to XL.
We chose the new Westcomb eVENT jacket because it has a minimal but essential feature set, and its clean design and construction. The Westcomb Cruiser Hoody is an anorak with a similar feature set; however it weighs the same as the Spector because it has heavier fabric on the shoulders for more durability while wearing a backpack.
