The Arc’teryx Squamish Hooded Jacket for men is a durable windbreaker with a great fit. It is best used in warmer and dry conditions since it has little to no protection against rain and snow. While the jacket breaths well, it lacks ventilation and pockets. Even though the Squamish works well as a warm weather jacket, there are cheaper and more suitable windbreakers on the market.
