Columbia Titan Lite™ Windbreaker

 Columbia Titan Lite Windbreaker

$120

Extremely light yet effective windbreaker by new Columbia Montrail line. The Titan Lite Windbreaker is constructed of 100% Nylon. This jacket delivers everything it says it does. It is windproof and lightly water resistant, and is fully packable into its own pocket, so it is easy to stash it into your pack or waist belt. It also features the Omni-Freeze ZERO Sweat-activated cooling to keep you nice and cool on those warm misty days. The large vents on the back help with the cooling as well. Being so light and packable makes this is a great item to take along on any mountain adventure.

 

 

 

This jacket ranks top notch in both style and usability. Added trim on side seams, a sturdy teal front zipper and just the right amount of high visibility reflective detail make it a look good/feel good high quality running windbreaker for the lighter seasons.

This feather light windbreaker is amazingly packable just about anywhere and it will not take much room and hardly weights anything or it can be pack into its own security build in pocket and carry it along while running, either way, it will not weight you down. I’d love for it to have a hoody but not a big deal. An essential item for light rain forecast not water proof but water repellent (lightly) for those unexpected light drizzles. A zipper chest pocket with an inner mesh lining big enough for fuel on the go or car key, not for phone as it may bounce much while moving. Hidden ventilation opening in the back which allows air to flow in and keeps the core temperature regulated. Draw cords in the bottom lining of jacket, it helps to adjust around the waist if desired. Front zipper, easy to move up and down. Back of the jacket drops low, providing great coverage in the back. Small reflective details for low light visibility runs, small reflective Montrail Columbia logo in the left side of the jacket. This Jacket makes a great item for those windy chilly runs.

 

 

Pros: The jacket is light, very light. A drawstring adjustable hem, high neck, front zip pocket and high back venting panel are just a few of this jackets great features. Also noteworthy are the semi stretch side vents which extend to the inner upper arm, the Omni Shield water and stain repellent, and Columbia’s special Omni Freeze sweat activated cooling technology to keep you as comfortable as possible on iffy weather days. The vented panels under the armpits are nice. Great colors!

Cons: Small features of comfort and user friendliness, such as zipper pulls and the chest pocket.

The Columbia Montrail full zip windbreaker is the perfect lightweight layer for runners.

TAUR Rated: 4.5
