A hard shell jacket that actually lives up to its breathability claims, the Men's Patagonia Light Flyer Jacket is a jacket you can really run in. Bring on the muddy trails, the huge drops of water falling out of the trees, and the soggy ferns that feel like they dump a liter of water on you as you brush past them, the Light Flyer will block that wetness out. Made from 3-layer Gore-Tex Active nylon fabric, this lightweight running jacket remains ultra breathable as you sweat. The upper arm zippers help keep the air moving through to enhance drying. It has a Slim Fit and articulated sleeves for less wind drag while you move, and a slightyly longer tail for coverage on a bike. A drawcord at the hem seals out strong gusts, and a zippered pocket at the back keeps small essentials handy. No need to carry extra gloves, the cuffs fold out into simple mittens that shield hands from icy winds. When no amount of rain, sleet, wind and nasty weather can keep you from venturing out, pull on the Patagonia Men's Light Flyer Jacket and stay comfy through the miles.

True to Description
September 01, 2013

I purchased this jacket for hiking and as basic rain gear. At 6'1" and 220 physically fit pounds the XL fits just as described. It is a good slim fit. It is extremely light and I fold it up and stuff it in small bag and leave it in my backpack until needed. I bought this for summer wear because the wind where I live can damage an umbrella quickly. This hard shell gor tex jacket does exactly what it was intended to do with style. When the temperature does drop, I will simply wear this over a thermal baselayer and I believe it will work just fine. If you prefer to stay dry in the rain this jacket is a good choice.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Cons: was only available in one color

Best jacket in my bike bag
November 12, 2013

I bought the Light Flyer jacket primarily as breathable rain gear for year-round cycling. It has proven to be that and much more. Rolled up into a tight cylinder about the size of a sandwich wrap, it is undetectably light in my small lumbar pack. It not only provided quick protection in summer showers riding around France this summer, here in New England where I live, after getting soggy from climbing an hour in my base layer and jersey, I throw it on and it is perfectly windproof, keeping me snug while whistling down 4-5 mile descents in mid-30s temperatures. The adjustable hand-flaps are great for overlapping the gap between gloves and jersey and keeping out water and cold. In warm weather the zippered side vents make a noticeable difference when opened (especially at bike speeds). The construction and materials are what Patagonia once described (about a still serviceable 15-year-old hooded shell I have) as "bomber-proof". I am 5' 10" and 180lbs., and while toned and trim (most medium jerseys and shirts fit me well), I have broad-shoulders and muscular arms and torso, so I opted for a size large in the Light Flyer, which still has a nicely tapered fit (no blousing or billowing) but allows for several base and mid layers to be comfortably worn under it.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, great long-term investment
