This jacket can fit into your running pack, waist-belt or pocket, or as I usually handle it – just under a coiled neck-warmer on my wrist or in the side of my sock (yes I do that...).
The Salomon Fast Wing Hoodie is perfect for ultra-runners, day-hikers, climbers, cyclists and for anyone excited about featherweight insulation and weather protection.

It's held up remarkably well, given the amount I wear it and travel with it. The only fault I’ve noticed is that the Salomon logo is coming off, so now I have a jacket with “SALOM” written on it, which is really not a big a deal. Other than that, the jacket is still in incredible condition.
