    For windproofing I use a Tyvek jacket that I got when I did the Santa Fe Century. I then ordered anoother. On colder days, I wear one over the other, and it creates an air pocket that maintains warmth pretty well.

    Tyvek does not last forever, but it is extremely light.

    Many folks might say to get a breathable jacket, and that is not a bad idea.

    Wind proof jacket

    How do you like the Starter jacket? I bought some Athletic Works (I think that's what it's called, it's the Walmart brand) wind pants a while back for backpacking. I removed the mesh liner so only the outside shell remained. I find they they really aren't windproof at all. I hesitate to call them wind resistant. Maybe the starter stuff is better?
