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. Extremely lightweight and packable. Every detail has been carefully considered, from micro elastic on the cuffs to discrete venting and advanced hood design with fully taped seams. Biomimically based on the high-strength-to-weight patterning of an Anisoptera wing.

Weight: Size medium jacket weighs 175g / 6.5oz.
Fit: Dragonfly Jacket has an athletic, slim fit. Most will fit in size usually worn. Unisex fit: Men's fit usually true to size, unless you are on the larger side of your size. If you normally wear a size medium, a size medium is your size. Women’s fit is generally one size down for best fit. If you normally would wear a women’s medium, a size small is your size. If you are petite or on the smaller side of your usual size range, sizing down two sizes works well.

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.
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,”
