Our Customer Say
I got to try out the Switchback jacket for the first time on the Wapta traverse. It kept me dry and was very breathable. Super comfortable and fit perfectly.
Avid Sea Kayaker
I went on a kayak trip in early September, 2022 and needed to upgrade some of my gear. I replaced my old rain gear with custom fit Spirit West SwitchBack jacket and pants. The fabric seems to be very similar to my Arcteryx coat but it's much quieter. The hood worked perfectly and was stiff enough that I didn't need a baseball cap. We had a several days of wind and rain and the coat and pants worked flawlessly. It's so comfortable that I'll be able to wear it around town too.
