When Garneau introduced the X-Lite jacket, they weren't kidding about the jacket's name. It comes in at a mere 65 grams. And beyond lightweight, it offers solid weather protection from wind and rain in a small profile to create a completely packable garment.
Like other Garneau garments, the X-Lite is constructed of anatomical patterns which is paramount in a lightweight jacket to keep it from flapping. The arm cuffs and lower hem are double stitched and have elastic bands to optimize fit and performance. The full length Camlock zipper has an inside sleeve to prevent sneaky air from penetrating. We're kind of stating the obvious here, but a full length zip always offers the ultimate in temperature regulation. The panels under the arms are mesh-vented to allow perspiration evacuation.
In summary, the X-Lite is a low profile and lightweight garment that makes a good travel partner for those warmer days were you may need some extra protection.
