Cotopaxi Aquateca Windbreaker


No matter which way the wind blew, this under-$100 jacket owned the beach, mountains and hostel.  Repurposed ripstop, treated with DWR finish, is less permeable than the featherweight 7oz. piece hints.  The form-fitting scuba hood helped when wind and spray kicked in; testers had negligible water inclusion through the ¾ length zipper.  Elastic hood, cuffs and hem were plenty while the kangaroo pocket held essentials securely during grocery shopping outings.

Tester Quote: “I started using the jacket more and more for all of our activities.  Funny because the bright colors don’t hint at the jacket’s serious use for this kind of travel.”

Best For: Seasonal travel, back-up during warmer weather hikes and bike rides
