PIT ZIPS – Manufacturers often cut out features like pit zips when designing ultralight jackets to keep weight and cost to a minimum. But Enlightened Equipment included them in the Visp, which we really appreciate for the added breathability. We wish the zips were a bit longer for even better ventilation, but we’re happy to see this feature included on such a lightweight jacket.
DURABLE FOR THE WEIGHT – You’ll need to be a little delicate with this ultralight jacket, but we’ve been pleasantly surprised by how durable it is. We’ve hiked through thick willows and shrubs in it, and didn’t get a single snag or tear. It’s best to treat it with care to ensure it lasts for many seasons of hiking, but you can rest assured that it’s up for daily wear on tough trails.
