REI Thermo LT Jacket

rei-thermo.jpgREI Thermo LT Jacket – A windproof jacket.

REI has continually brought the outdoor community quality gear that easily performs just as well as its expensive, name brand counterpart. The REI Thermo LT Jacket is just another piece of awesome outdoor clothing that can be added to that list. With features comparable to top selling North Face and Marmot jackets, its a wonder anyone wouldn’t buy the REI Thermo LT Jacket over the competition.

Designed to be a multi-functional layering choice, the REI Thermo LT Jacket has a slim, athletic fit. This style makes it ideal for a mid layer, but still lets it perform well on its own. As a layering choice, the REI Thermo LT Jacket is sure to add warmth by way of its fleece material and windproof design.

The REI Thermo LT Jacket is made from a Polartec Win Pro, a light weight fleece. This Polartec fleece offers substantially more wind protection than traditional fleece, but without sacrificing its breath ability. Not only is the REI Thermo LT Jacket built to be wind proof, it is also coated with a durable water repellent finish which helps to fight off mist and light rain.
