Review: Thirty Two Shiloh Jacket

Shiloh Black/Charcoal - JP Walker Signature Colorway

Thirty Two is in the second year of their outerwear line and they’ve been turning heads this season with their bold  colorways and designs.  The Shiloh is new for this year and is one of two technical shells they are offering.  The Shiloh is a great lightweight shell that pairs well with a hoodie or fleece on colder days or can stand alone in the spring or on warmer days.  It offers 8K/5K waterproofing and breathability, mesh-lined pit zips, lycra wrist gaitors and a snap-away powder skirt. 

 There’s not too many bells and whistles here, just plain simple style and functionality.  Pros include; a well thought out storm collar and premium snag-free zippers.  Cons are that the multimedia pocket is slightly small for a standard iPod and sits awkwardly high on the chest.  Also the Shiloh sizes on the large side (not surprising given the Thrity Two team aesthetic), I had to size down from a Large to a Medium for a more standard fit.  All in all the Shiloh is a solid piece of outerwear for those who aren’t afraid to stand out in a crowd.

MSRP: $159.95
