Hi-Tec Windy Point Shell Review

    All and all I am super impressed with the overall fit and design of this shell, the shoulder length is designed with the mindset that there will be gear worn underneath, but still slick and fitted for comfort ability. #ladiesspecificfit

    Reflective Detail

    Keeping in mind that this shell is not a reflective specific garment, there is not much detail that contributes to this factor. There is however a 5cm x 1cm sized reflective Hi-Tec logo on the front bottom left part of the shell as well as a same size logo on the on right top part of the shoulder.

    Other than that, no significant reflective detail planned for this shell, BUT it is not a reflective garment… it’s a WINDPROOF SHELL. #windproofspecific

    On The Flip Side

    The Windy Point has a mesh front section, which I thought was quite clever because it keeps the shell’s “Lightweight 20d Nylon Ripstop with DWR finish” away from your skin, preventing the fabric to cling to your body when damp.

    Back to the ZIPS again, I could see the “Reversed Coil Zip”, this is really an innovative feature because the zip, which is classified as a weak spot on a garment was covered from the outside and the gusset on the inside also acts as double protection for a cold chilly wind NOT to enter. A chest pocket also features on the inside of the shell, but more on this nifty zip space in the test run section.
