Alpkit Arro Wind Shell: Tested & Reviewed

Written by

A lightweight windproof is a piece of kit everyone should have in their outdoor arsenal. I take a look at Alpkit’s offering, the Arro Wind Shell.

I used it for running mainly but have also had it on when on my mountain bike and general hiking. The image below is when I used it during the Lakeland 50, watch the review to see how it got on.

Alpkit say:

Classic windshirt. Lightweight, packable and windproof jacket with DWR water repellency, for high intensity activity.

Lightweight, packable and windproof, Arro is a classic windshirt conceived for hard use with a soft touch, non-rustle fabric, anatomically cut for mobility. Run like the wind rather than get blown about by the wind.
100% windproof lightweight nylon jacket, a versatile layer for adding warmth without much weight or bulk. Ideal for biking and running, but also handy for hikers and climbers, or anyone who needs to cut out the wind chill.
