    I had been looking for a wind shirt but was not quite ready to drop $80+ on one when I found the CAMP Magic Anorak on sale last year for $30 (it is now priced at $90).

    I ordered a large, but found it a bit too tight – at 5'10, 175, I am usually on the borderline of M and L. Despite it being a closeout item, CAMP willingly exchanged the L for an XL.

    As advertised, the weight of the anorak is a hair under 4 oz. The fabric is supple and very comfortable, not noisy when moving.

    Living in CO, I've had ample opportunity to test its merit as a windbreaker and have been completely satisfied on that account. The hood is well-designed and doesn't billow out or flap in the wind.

    Breathability is very good. However, this jacket is far from waterproof (nor does it claim to be). I've been caught out in a few storms with it, and it will keep me dry for 5-15 minutes at most.

    The only fault I find with the anorak is the built in stuff sack. In an effort to minimize packed size (4 x 2 1/2"), the sack is undersized and requires too much time and effort to get packed away. Another cm in either dimension and I would have given 5 stars.

    With its small size, light weight and good performance, this wind shirt has found a permanent home in my pack for trips short and long.
