Windbreakers are lightweight jackets designed to block wind chill and resist light rain in milder weather conditions. Windbreakers are usually made of synthetic, lightweight materials and often feature elastic or fitted cuffs and waistband with stand-up collar and hood.
Winter is the coldest period of the four seasons. Winter occurs between fall and spring; during the months of December, January, and February in the northern hemisphere; and during June, July and August in the Southern hemisphere. Winter is characterized by cold weather, with snow and ice on the higher latitudes.

This is a great jacket as you would expect from Patagonia. I do have the same problem as the other customer keeping the hood up on a windy day.

Glad I bought this . Light and compresses well . One wouldn't think this garment could pack the warmth that it does . Wore it today for the first time , ice climbing . Had on a mid wt layer , 100 wt fleece with a soft shell . As pretty chilly . Threw the patty on and I was toast . Temps were low teens with a good stiff wind . Easy in the single digets 0 with the wind chill . Fit is good for layering under or over a shell .I'm 5'10" 190# with a square build and the large fit perfect . Not to baggy as a under layer , and works well as a over layer with no restrictive movements .
Patagonia Super Alpine Jacket Hurricane Proof

Talk about a good first impression. Right after I got this jacket I was in the thick of it that was Super Storm/ Hurricane Sandy. In both the rain and the snow that it dumped on us it certainly proved its worth. Hands down my favorite thing about this jacket is the wrist gaskets...what a great addition. The fit is spot on as it is cut athletic but easy to layer underneath as the temps drop. At this point I have been through multiple Gore-tex Shells and this is my favorite so far. Its burly and is taking all the abuse I can give it. As a disclaimer I test products for the Gore company.
