    Airshed Pullover

    Made for those in between days where it's too cold for just a t-shirt and too warm for a bulky or insulated jacket, the Patagonia Airshed Pullover is the year-round endurance athlete's best friend. It's made from the same soft and lightweight fabric as Patagonia's Nano-Air series is, so it's not only-soft to the touch and ultra-comfortable, but also wind resistant to give you just enough warmth on cold and blustery days. DWR (Durable Water Repellent) sheds drizzly rain on cloudy days, while the nylon fabric wicks moisture so you can stay comfortable and dry during your trail run or mountain biking session. When you need to dump heat the extended zipper quickly lets in cooler air, and if you're still too hot you can stuff the Airshed into its own chest pocket and easily carry it for the rest of your run.

    • This active pullover offers wind resistance and comfortable warmth
    • Soft nylon fabric wicks moisture to keep you dry on long runs
    • Wind resistance provides the right amount of warmth for cardio
    • DWR treatment sheds off light rain or snow flurries
    • Extended quarter zip lets you quickly dump heat
    • Chest pocket doubles as stuffsack when the weather warms up
    • Stretchy hem and cuffs keep out blowing winds and cold air
    • Reflective logos at front and back let them know you're out there
    • Item #PAT01SM

    The Wind Warrior

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    I'm going to preface this review by letting everybody know that I DO NOT RUN. Yeah I know, but here is a new perspective for those who stumble across this treasure. So if I don't run why did I get the Airshed? Simple: I am a comfort connoisseur and I despise getting blasted by the wind. I must say my expectations for this paper light jacket keeping me warm were extremely extremely low. How could a jacket that I could SEE THROUGH offer me any type of elemental protection. However, upon wearing this jacket both under hoodies and by itself in the frigid Utah wind, I gained a new found respect for runner clothing because this Jacket literally brick walled the wind. Nada. I will not be surprised when this tech goes as mainstream as the jogger. Although I haven't yet, I am very excited to take this jacket touring up in the mountains where it will act as my lightweight wind-stopping packable companion. I honestly loved the fit as well because I have broad shoulders and most Patagonia Larges make me feel like Randy from a Christmas Story, but THIS ONE DIDN'T :). Total freedom. The only downside could be to snag this thing on a tree and rip it because it is so thin.
    Overall: I am obsessed with how comfortable this jacket is and how it can serve as your windproof layer under a hoodie or on a Touring Expo.

    Best Running Layer Ever

    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    The thin softshell fabric of the airshed is ideal for cooler whether running and hiking. It breathes well when you are pushing the pace but still feels warm when you're not. I recently wore this jacket up Mt Elbert in Colorado where temps were in the low 40s up top and was very comfortable, even with 30 mph winds above 14,000 ft. Fitting into its own pocket to about the size of an orange makes this really convenient to carry in a pack or a pocket. Although thin, this material still seems very durable and I know it will hold up. The fit is a little on the bigger side, so maybe try a size down from normal or the same size to layer under a little more.

    Light and Strong, Repels Wind and Water

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: M
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    As light as tissue and super strong, the Airshed is like wearing a fabled coat of mithril made by the dwarves of Middle Earth. Whether you're chasing orcs or being chased by Nazgul, the wind will not pierce this garmet. It's also surprisingly water resistant: I put it under the faucet of my bathtub and it remained 100% dry.

    My only problem with the Airshed is it fits a little tightly in the shoulders. I'm 5'11" and slim. The size large was definitely too big. The medium fit well in all areas except the shoulders. It wasn't a deal breaker but I wish there were another inch across the shoulder.

    Fantastic for Running in Cold Temps

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 162lbs

    I purchased the Airshed for winter running on recommendation from Gearhead James Griffin. It does exactly what he said it did, which is "dumps heat really well." I am pretty high output (lots of heat, sweat) and was looking for a piece that would block the wind with the lightest material possible while being highly breathable, and this does exactly that better than anything I've used (and much better than the Houdini which I also own). I typically pair it with a single, light base layer underneath for temps in the 30s or lower. I wore it last night in 35º mixed rain and snow for an hour run. The DWR stood up well to the very wet snow, and a little moisture finally started to penetrate around the 1 hour mark, but very little. It's super light, and trim in fit, but that works well to wick moisture from the base layer, and the flexible fabric allows for comfortable arm-swing. I am 5' 10" 162 lbs. and the Medium fits just right with one layer. I typically wear a medium in t-shirts, and have a 37-38" chest and 31" waistline, if that helps. (If I had a beer belly, a Medium might be a bit tight :)

    Super Breathable

    This might be the most breathable jacket ever. Great for running in cooler temps and wind. Patagonia suggested size for me was a large. I usually wear a medium so unless you plan to wear this over a heavier base layer I would probably stick to your normal size.

    Thin, but Quality

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'2"

    I purchased this item as a gift for my husband and I was initially displeased because it is literally the thinnest and seemingly delicate piece of fabric I have ever laid hands on. That said, my husband is a Patagonia lover and assured me it would not rip/tear like I assumed it would. And he was right! It's stretchy, it's breathable and somehow wicks away moisture. It is really a fantastic pullover and we love the Viking Blue color. It really pops against a pair of black pants. I will say that it has a slimmer fit, but my husband who is a standard XL in most all shirts and jackets says it fits him perfectly and that he would not want a larger size. I would likely purchase again if my husband lost/damaged his, but would cringe at the cost if/when doing so.

    Awesome Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    Bought this jacket just before leaving on a trip to Oregon and Washington in August. This was the only windbreaker/light jacket I had on the three week trip and I used it around town, hiking. and backpacking. Jacket fit well and I loved the fabric. The jacket shed the moisture during short periods of light rain/heavy drizzle in Olympic National Park. No complaints.

    So many uses

    I picked this up more for a packable lightweight shell on cold mornings on the trail. After a couple of days I found I wear it almost everywhere and all the time. Absolutely love the feel and fit. Lightweight, but protective and super comfortable.

    Forgot it was on!

    I've been using this for bike rides and runs over the last few weeks and I thought i'd be taking it off for climbs but I forget i'm wearing it.

    Just enough weather protection and really comfortable.

    Pinning in in bad weather, no problem!

    Those days that it seems too warm to be snowing but it's actually nuking. Yea those days are tricky. The skiing is good and you want to move fas, right? With a shell you will drowned in your own sweat, a mid layer will instantly be soaked and a base layer or T just don't offer any protection. The Airshed is the answer! Provides just enough protection without any of the drawbacks of actually having protection. Is that possible? Yup!

    It's also money for early and late season mountain biking when the temps swing rapidly. Or a super early morning ride where you need something to get you started and out the door but know it's going to warm up quick and don't want to take the time to shed a layer once your shredding!

    As a bonus the chest pocket is the perfect size for a phone and keeps the added weight away from your thrashing thighs during some rapid pedaling. Sometimes it's the little things that make me love a piece!

    Great Fabric, Ok Fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    40" chest, 32" waist

    I wore this once on a test-run.

    I love the fabric; super light, sheds a drizzle, and breathes really well. However, I'm not sold on some of the fit decisions. The chest and arms are great; trim but not tight. The sleeve length could be longer and I wish they used thumb holes instead of the Arcteryx-style wrist closures. I'm used to wearing light gloves, then using thumb holes or balling up my hands and pulling the sleeves down when it gets too cold, which I can't really do with this. I'm not a fan of the hem either. It's not long enough to cover my butt, so the stretchy part rides up and gives me this goofy-looking mushroom top. I'd really like to see this in a full-zip, with thumb holes, and a longer center back length.

    As good as it gets

    First, I want to thank Backcountry.com and Patagonia for hooking me up with the Airshed to test and review. I've been running it through all types of weather to give you my thoughts on this new piece from Patagonia. Now on to the goods...

    The Patagonia Airshed is far and away the most versatile shell (though it feels like a really cozy shirt) I have ever worn. One of the biggest problems I've had with many wind shells in the past is that clammy feeling you get when you start to work a little hard on those long climbs or when it gets wet from some unexpected precipitation. The Airshed seems to be in that perfect zone where it cuts the chill of the wind just enough to keep you protected and comfortable but still lets a little bit of the breeze come through. The jacket is very breathable to start with but I've found this really helps with keeping my body temp regulated on those tough long climbs when I'm really putting in effort. If I was using any other shell, I would have to take the jacket off or I'd start overheating and create a sauna-like effect in the jacket.

    Beyond it's breathability and wind-blocking ability, the Airshed does a fairly good job at protecting against the elements. On one run, it rained continuously and it wasn't until about 35-40 minutes into my run that the jacket started to give up a little and the moisture started to seep through in spots. I still had about 30 minutes to go on my run and even though the Airshed was slightly saturated, I didn't feel like I was really getting wet. I was really pleased with how it performed.

    I've worn the Airshed in temps ranging from 25-55 degrees on sunny days, rainy days, really windy days on a ridge and even in the snow. Every one of those situations, I've been pleasantly surprised at how well it performs. There is no other shell I have that I could wear in all of those situations and stay comfortable throughout. Patagonia has found the perfect blend of weather protection and breathability and somehow wrapped it up into an ultralight, really comfortable shell that feels and looks more like a shirt. An absolute home run in my book.

    Spring Showers

    Ran in the rain for about an hour with the Airshed to see how long it would hold up to moisture. The rain didn't start coming through the fabric until about 40 minutes in and even then, the Airshed was comfortable and I didn't really feel like I was getting wet or have that water-logged feeling like you might experience in a typical wind jacket

    Spring Showers

    Even better than I thought it would be

    I've had my Patagonia Airshed Pullover for a couple months now. The fit is excellent, and quite true to size - it's an athletic trim fit, but not tight by any means.

    What sets the Airshed apart is how versatile it is - I would say that it is "just right" in a wide range of temperatures due to how well it lets heat out when you start running hot. The best part is how the fabric somehow also manages to give you a nice little wind block and warmth when you need it. While this is certainly a technical piece that excels in aerobic activities like mountain biking, running, hiking, and skinning, it's understated appearance and comfortable stretch material makes it a perfect all-around piece for lower intensity activities too (I played golf in it last week and wore it to the beach on a windy day and it was perfect). If you have a Nano-Air, you're already familiar with the fabric here - it's like a Nano-Air without the insulation.

    Update

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Some new info after more time in the Airshed--- I've worn the Airshed in a range of temps now (30-60deg) and I'm finding that this top seriously dumps heat. If I start to get warm and sweat, the Airshed helps regulate my body temp by allowing plenty of breathability and keeping me cool when it's wet. I'm interested to see how this thing works as a stand-alone layer even on summer days.

    I also find that when the Airshed is damp/wet, it feels much better against my skin compared to my Houdini.
