2016 Windblock Garment Roundup

This page is intended to be a resource for the availability of partial windblock garments, especially at the next-to-skin or base layer.

Garments on this page typically block wind on the anterior portion of the garment but leave the posterior of the garment breathable, thereby striking a balance between protection from the elements and the need to vent heat and moisture during aerobic activities. 

Any waterproofing or other functionality provided by a garment on this page is secondary and incidental to the design. These are not waterproof or DWR garments. Gloves, scarves and buffs are not included.

This list was last updated on Dec 7, 2016
