Biomimetically based on the high-strength-to-weight patterning of an Anisoptera wing.

Made from our proprietary Dragonfly rain shell fabric, a made in Japan, 3-layer, thin-film laminate and the foundation of the waterproof system. Stay dry in wet and un-expected weather.

Every detail has been carefully considered, from micro elastic on the cuffs to discrete venting and advanced hood design with fully taped seams.



If you’re as likely to encounter rain or sleet as you are snow on your winter excursions, this two-piece set will keep you dry without weighing you down. The brand’s proprietary, three-layer, ultrathin fabric protected us from Shenandoah National Park downpours, brisk winds while snowshoeing in Alaska’s Tongass National Forest, and seven hours of sleet during a Virginia ultramarathon without flinching. Breathability is very good, keeping us out of the red zone while we hiked at 50°F, and the whole kit packs down to the size of a couple of russet potatoes.

The Details

Even at this weight, the minimalist Dragonfly kit still has a few features: You get a chest pocket that fits a phone, a one-way adjustable hood and hem, always-open pit vents, and zips on the pants that run from ankle to knee for extra venting. (Nitpick: The hood brim flops around). And though the material is too delicate for substantial bushwacking, it held up well on-trail. “The nylon fabric is paper-thin, but after 100 miles of backpacking, hiking, and trail running, it still looks new,” 

Amazingly light!

The jacket's light weight was even more shear and wispy than I thought... very impressive! The feeling of the fabric was still soft, not plasticky/stiff at all. It arrived the day of some heavy rains and I wear tested it immediately: I'm very happy with how well it kept the rain out. The color is neutral and I can also wear this on cooler/breezy walks in the evenings.

Light as a feather

I did not realize when I bought this pant just how often I would wear them. Hiking, golf, walking in the city. They are so light and keep you dry and comfortable. And they pack up incredibly small.
