Salomon Drifter Mid Hoodie Review

This is what Salomon has to say about the Salomon Drifter Mid Hoodie:

The definition of outdoor versatility, Drifter has 2 different face fabrics that deliver a very different look and level of warmth. Wear the shiny side out for maximum warmth and wind protection, wear the stretch side for a casual look and to allow more air to permeate the insulation for slightly less warmth.

The mid layer is really light weighing in at just 500g and as you would expect from a Primaloft 60g insulation it packs down really small too. Image below to demonstrate this (bag not included):

The Salomon Drifter Hoodie has a pretty cool reversible function which allows you to wear it inside out. This particular colour reverses to a yellow alternative. The two sides have very different uses too, one is more windproof whilst the other is more breathable and allows you to stay cooler. It’s also perfect for quick disguises or more practically, allowing one side to air out during those longer expeditions where you may not get the opportunity to wash for a while.

I really enjoy wearing this jacket, its light and I don’t overheat in it as it has good breathability. It also fits well and sizing is consistent with other Salomon gear, although it isn’t as close fitting as the S-Lab range of clothing (which personally I prefer, being of slim build).


TOP DEALS FROM THE BRANDS WE LOVE

This mid layer jacket is also wind and snow proof with Salomon’s AdvancedSkin Shield technology, which means you can wear it as an outer layer too. I don’t suggest wearing it in rainy conditions though, although I did recently in Chamonix. It held off the water for a little while but eventually, it started absorbing some of it.

The hood itself looks great and is possibly large enough to wear with a small helmet on underneath if you wear it skiing or climbing for example. Im also a big fan of the double front pockets to keep your hands warm when you find yourself without gloves.

With fall just around the corner, here is the link, so you can see how good this jacket is for your self!

A big thank you to Salomon for sending me this mid layer to review. It’s been fun wearing it and getting familiar with some of the clever new technologies coming out of the Salomon labs.
