Description

 

Field Notes: NanoPro 3 Layer Fabric provides a crisp wall of protection. Not as quiet as other shells tested, the goal is more solid defense than fashionable wear. That said, the fit is trim with long pit zips that don’t kill the clean lines and 100% seam-taped, guide-quality build. Higher pocket placement stays clear of pack straps and the hood volume is well suited to hats and helmets; the moldable brim stay is less rigid and more forgiving that others tested. Hood adjustment toggles are fairly standard fare while the jacket’s panelized body moves well during more athletic pursuits. Put this one in the investment category as a worthwhile, multi-season upgrade or replacement for less rugged pieces.

Pros: Athletic fit that moves well with women’s specific, panelized design

Cons: Pricing pushes the top end in a 12.6oz piece, drawcord hem is average

Tester comments: “This is a get up and go piece, anchored by a superior fabric build. The pit zips meant being able to wear the jacket from early until late in breezy or shadowed places including canyons. Durability is expected to keep Starfire in the game for years to come.”
