Our lightweight windbreaker jacket was birthed out of one of the windiest coldest nights of my life spent atop the Roan Highlands hiking a section of the Appalachian Trail. Hiking in the darkness to reach our next stop. The wind gusts beat us mercilessly through the night. Finally we found a place to setup camp around a small section of Firs to divert the winds atop Jane Bald. We barely slept that night because of this unrelenting wind. Groggy and sleepy eyed the next morning we awoke to a surprisingly calm morning to one of the most breath taking hikes of our entire lives over the next section. Which is why this windbreaker is aptly named the Roan which will keep you sheltered in the harshest of wind gusts.
