On trail runs in the Rockies, it can happen in a flash: Blue skies turn black, dirt turns to mud, trickles turn to streams. So when the skies unleash, just put on your running jacket. The wind- and waterproof Light Flyer Jacket uses GORE-TEX® Active fabric to create our lightest, most breathable hard shell for running and cycling. It's cut to a slim fit and has articulated sleeves, a very slight drop tail, a self-fabric stand-up collar that's lined with lightweight mesh, a low-profile drawcord hem and a compact lower-back pocket that holds a couple of gels for bonk prevention. Upper-arm zippers facilitate airflow to the always open (yet protected) back vent, and extra-coverage cuffs help warm the hands on 35-degree days while also folding out into mittens if it gets even more frigid. With a DWR® (durable water repellent) finish and a reflective logo on the left chest and center back neck.

The 3-layer construction used for the GORE-TEX® Performance Shell is designed for a wide range of outdoor activities. The 3-layer GORE-TEX Performance Shell has a special GORE-TEX membrane, bonded to a tough outer material and a robust inner lining. The benefit: no movement between the three layers, which means less wear and tear, and even greater durability.
