Any update on when we might see wind cheaters back in stock for size XL? Or the two tone availability?

 

And the coyote ruff?  The last update was February/March.  Thank you.

I am 5'10" and about 225, XL fit well with room for minimal under garment like a flannel long sleeve or insulation layer. material is much softer and quite than I expected.

I got my HPG Wind Cheater about a month ago, and I'm really pleased with it! I got it mainly for a cold weather shell, and was concerned about sizing. I'm 5'7" and weigh 135 pounds. I went with a medium, and I'm glad I did. I can layer a puffy jacket under it just fine.

Are there any plans for a run of wind cheaters in coyote or 2-tone with coyote/khaki incorporated?

Seems like the coyote ruff has been out of stock for a year now. Any idea when it’s coming back? I want to order the WC but only if I can get it and the ruff. 

 

 

On a side note. I’m 6’2” 185lbs. I was thinking to get a large but I’m worried about the length. Any suggestions? L or XL?

X2 on the ruff.

Also Im 6'0" 220lbs stocky build and I wear a XL. Fits a bit big in lower chest/stomach area but sleeves are perfect.

No coyote colored WC plans. We've gotten 3 large shipments of coyote ruffs over the past 12 months but they tend to go quickly because I keep underestimating demand. If you want to make sure you get one, get on the notification list by emailing info@. FWIW, we should see our next shipment of them in the next month.

I would go XL. 

 

I'm 5'11" 185-190 (depedning on season, but have fairly long arms) and have both a L and XL Windcheater. The Large is fine for just wearing a t-shirt underneath, but the sleeves are too short on me if I use a heavy layer. The XL is perfect with a puffy jacket as a layer.  

Being 3 inches taller than me, I would go XL.

For what it's worth.

I am 6' 0" and 190 lbs.

I bought the L and returned it because too short in arms and snug throughout the back.

Am thinking XL or maybe even XXL because I would wear a G. Fred Asbel wool anorak underneath.

Is there a plan to make a hard shell or other waterproof jacket similar to the wind cheater?

We have a design, but so far haven't found a manufacturer.

Seems pretty short stocked on XL. Any ETA for next batches?

Well, for a short moment the coyote ruffs were back in stock. I managed to snag one before they went out of stock again. If you weren't on the notification list, Kevin thinks they may have another stock next week, if anyone is interested in that.

I wanted to ask those who've had their Wind Cheater for longer say, 6 months. How is the velcro strap holding up? I was reading through some of the comments on the First Spear website and it appears one customer mentioned that the velcro on the sleeves wasn't holding up well. I think he used the words "DEAD" to describe his situation.

Are you talking about the cuff strap velcro? I have two WC and had them for nearly two (maybe even three) years. I do not wear them everyday of course but, I have had little wear and tear show on either of them. Velcro cuffs on any jacket will go after a while...easy to replace.


I actually find I do not utilize the cuff velcro much at all, if ever. I tend to leave them half closed or fully open.


I finally snagged my coyote ruff too.

Just got to say. Recieved mine between Christmas and new year. Awesome new cut I had the opportunity to borrow one last year. Really prefer the front length on this version and the fur ruff has been great out in some wet claggy driving snow. Been out in a reasonable blizzard and in -25c with the wind chill and have found it a truly great product. Should have got one years ago.

I already have a windcheater but I was curious if there was ever going to be a stock update on some of the color options...I like window shopping.

I sure love the wind cheater I ordered. I'm 6’0 190lbs, I ordered a large and could not be happier with the fit. As a stand alone jacket it fits loose but not big. My north face puffy jacket fits perfectly comfortable underneath it when I stop moving and layer up. Thanks for a great product.

Will you have a version made out of waxed canvas ? For instance the one made by Halley Stevensons from Scotland... they probably have an importer in the USA. It would address both inclement weather elements : wind and rain (well probably not 2 hours of heavy rain).
I would be willing to buy at least one, if made in different colors probables more.

We have kicked it around, but no plans at this time.
