Product Care

For best performance, wash the jacket regularly to remove body oils from the fabric. The NeoShell membrane is mirco-porus so works best when not blocked with oils.

Machine wash on a warm permanent press cycle (105º F/40º C) using a small amount of liquid detergent or performance wash such as Granger’s® Performance Cleaner. Rinse twice, minimize spinning to reduce creasing. DO NOT use soap, powder detergents or any products that contain fabric softeners, conditioners, stain removers or bleach as they will damage the membrane and void its warranty. Do not wash with heavily soiled clothing. Line dry your garment, or tumble dry it on a warm, gentle cycle. Once it is dry, tumble dry your garment for 20 minutes to reactivate the durable water-repellent (DWR) treatment on the outer fabric.

Westcomb Shift LT Hoody Review - Outdoor Gear Lab

"The Westcomb Shift LT is the best hardshell jacket that we tried for those who are really aiming to work up a sweat. At only 10.9 ounces for a size large, it is so light that it becomes easy to mistake it for a simple wind jacket while out on a long backcountry skiing mission. But this hardshell jacket offers far more protection than a wind layer. Its Polartec Neoshell air permeable waterproof/breathable membrane was the lightest, most comfortable, stretchiest, and quietest hardshell material that we have seen. Not only that but we found it to be incredibly breathable. Its characteristics are so different than the other jackets we reviewed that it honestly made us question whether it belonged in the same genre! We found the Shift LT to be so amazing that it single-handedly created and filled a hole in our gear closet: the hardshell wind jacket. The 2015-16 version of the Shift LT remains essentially unchanged from the previous year's award winning debut, with the exception of colors. For the second year in a row, it was our second highest rated hardshell jacket, next to only the Arc'teryx Alpha FL." Outdoor Gear Lab, 2016
