Micro D 1/4 Zip Synchilla over lycra in the boot track on DC, Rainier.
The last half dozen times I've gone skiing I took a Micro D along and used it...June, July and now again on Oct.
I continue to be so impressed by this piece of clothing that I wanted to write about it again. From 11K on Rainier to a cold day on the beach. Or just around the house on a cool Fall morning. The Micro D delivers.
It is pretty wind proof. More than one would ever think. Extremely warm for the weight and super light weight. 226g or 8 oz. in my size medium. They run big and they are super stretchy. I'd guess it is almost as warm as my full weight Dachstein wool sweater. My own replacement for a "guide" sweater. Just a small percentage of the weight and bulk and the vast majority of the warmth and protection. Which is saying a lot. I own two. Not sure how one would wear it out with even minimal care. Best $60 I have spent for useful gear in a long while.
