Fox Racing pulled out all the stops for its Flexair DH Jersey, making its lightest downhill jersey ever and showing that mountain kit doesn't have to be bulky and baggy to be functional. According to Fox, the Flexair weighs 25% less than most downhill jerseys, and it's constructed with an airy knit that will move with you through descents and keep sweat moving off your skin. The fabric's 4% Lycra composition helps it hold its shape for hours, while laser-cut perforations step up to usher more air through the jersey while you're cooling off on the lift.

More durable than you may think!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
This jersey is great, I shy'd away from last years demo series because I didn't think the long sleeves breathed all to well. This jersey fixes that issue, lots of airflow and great fit. It has some great new material on the cuffs and the waist to hold the jersey tight against you. Rode today in 90 degree weather and didn't overheat and die, I attribute that to this jersey.
I did go down in a rock garden with this on and it didn't rip, so I'm thinking its more durable than it seems.
This jersey also looks very cool, and we all know half of riding good is looking good.
I have had an issue with the fabric pilling a bit, it is discouraging because these jerseys are expensive. It doesn't affect its function and this jersey is still my favorite of all the ones I own.
I wear size large and ordered a large, fits great!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Recently got one of these, and the first thing that stood out was how lightweight it is. Never have I owned a jersey as light as this. Extremely breathable, great fit, and plenty of stretch. Arm cuffs are a bit tight getting your hands through, but once on, the fit is great. Haven't had the opportunity to see how it will hold up in a crash, but imagine it would take a bit of force to rip as it has so much stretch. If you are looking for a light jersey, especially on a hot day, this is a serious contender.
