    ARGON full zippered wind jacket

    We have been working on this for a long time. We are coming out with a full feature ARGON UL jacket. Imagine if you could design your own jacket and put in all the feature you thought were important. One of the most important aspects of this jacket is there are no seam on the body from the top of the pocket all the way over the shoulder and down to the back hem. This jacket has...
    Two oversized pockets for hands and gear
    Articulated hood that is shock corded and has a buckle to retract it.
    ARGON fabric that is breathable and water resistant.
    Full YKK zipper that is professionally wrapped so there are no raw edges
    Large pit zips
    One handed adjustment for cuffs and bottom hem
    Extra long to cover your butt.
    Large is only 4 ounces (I stated 5 in vid but actual is 4 ounces)
    No seams from the front to the back of the body.
    We are starting with three colors, Dark Olive, Titanium Grey and Moroccan Blue.

    VERY nice design.

    How breathable is it? I prefer breathability to WR in such a jacket. Would you compare its breathability closeley to the prior Houdini (ie: ~ 2010, etc)? That's my favorite windshirt.

    Thank for bringing such a great design to market Dutch.

    Glad I waited on a windshirt because this is a strong contender. Those pit zips may win over the Montbell I was looking at. Everything else about this looks right. But the large may be too large for me, that's the only thing in question.

    p.s. just noticed the size chart. Up to a 54" chest in large and I wear a 40-41, so that may put a fork in it. What are the measurements for the guy in the pics online? That looks like a nice fit.

    ARGON 90 is very breathable. I've worn this jacket in hot, cold, windy, and other weather and have combined with down jackets or by itself and i've never had a clammy feeling with it.

    That's me in the picture and my chest is 42" (just measured it) and the jacket fits me very well. It is bigger when worn by itself but still a nice fit and works great with a down jacket under it for layering. I've been using this jacket for a long time now and i personally love the fit.

    I like everything but the sizes. Many people are not large. Please make a medium soon and I will get one.

    Thank you for responding. What are the pit-to-pit & base of hood to waist hem measurements?

    Thanks again.
