Why We Built This

We wanted to create a jacket we would take anywhere—a layer that pulls more than its weight on the road. And from there, the Viento was born.

Why It's Different

This jacket is a jack of all trades, master of none. It’s versatile functionality really is unicorn-level rare.

About This Product


If you needed to take one jacket on a trip, this would be it. Versatile, comfortable, and perfectly stretchy, the Viento was born to explore. In addition to its lightweight protection, this jacket feels great on the skin—its fabric blend of 96% nylon and 4% spandex is soft but athletic: something you could wear on a sky-high adventure or while chilling in a camp chair. A three piece fitted hood and elastic cuffs on the sleeves keep the warmth in, while zippered hand pockets keep your hands comfortable and toasty. And when you’re not using the Viento, pack it into one of its own travel compatible drop-in pockets for easy, on-the-go storage.

Why You'll Love It

Just the Right Amount of Stretch

Goldilocks would be proud: the Viento stretches according to your body’s movements, but always retains its original fit. With this jacket, mobility is just right.

Easy to Stow

The Viento won’t take up much room in your travel pack. Stuff it into its own chest pocket for easy, on-the-go, emergency warmth.

It’s in the Details

Lightweight, comfortable, and reliably colorful. Then there’s the fitted hood and elastic cuffs—our proverbial “cherries on top.”

About this Factory

Manufacturing details:

The Viento is produced at a forward-thinking factory in northeastern China, where worker well-being is a top priority. The factory is also working to meet the highest standards of sustainability and efficiency within the next few years. In partnership with this factory, we keep leftover fabric from other companies’ large production runs out of the landfill by turning it into limited-edition, unisex Tecas.
