WHAT IS IT?
AFTCO Windproof Reaper 3L Jacket
WHAT SETS IT APART?
AFTCO made a windproof version of its widely popular Reaper Technical Sweatshirt. What sets it apart is the Stretch 3-Layer Ripstop Soft Shell Fabric. AFTCO fused its Hexatron honey-comb fleece liner with an AFTC0-designed stretch ripstop softshell material.
HOW DO I USE IT?
This unique jacket retains the same features as the sweatshirt hoodie in an even warmer version. AFTCO added a side zipper, so you can adjust it as the day warms up, also making it easier to put on and take off.
This garment stays in my boat, always ready to tame the windchill for long runs. I layered up with a rainjacket over a fleece mid layer for wind and chill protection before the Reaper 3L came along. Now, the Reaper 3L is all I need, and AFTCO kept all the Reaper features I like, such as the integrated fleece face mask and neck warmer, and the shock cord adjustment for a snug fit. I also like the thumb loops that prevent chilly wind from bellowing out the sleeves when running at high speeds.
