The Salomon Fast Wing Hoodie is a surprisingly air- and watertight windbreaker designed for trail running. Cutting out any feature that could add even a gram of weight, the Fast Wing came in as the single lightest garment in our test at a mere 3.0 ounces. Heavy on the elastic, and with not a drawcord to be found, this jacket nevertheless seals out the weather very impressively for being essentially made of nothing but paper-thin nylon. While mountain runners could hardly choose a windbreaker that will protect them better while slowing them down less, those not looking for a running specific jacket may want to broaden their search.
Salomon has dropped the Fast Wing Hoodie from their lineup, but you can check out some other great options in our Wind Jacket Review!
