What better than the Dynafit Men's Patrol GTX Active Shell Jacket, with its weatherproof, breathable, lightweight Gore-Tex shell, supermobile athletic fit, hood plus visor, roomy pockets, and convenient integrated thumbholes? That you can pack it into its hood, stow it on the hike, whip it out at the summit, and descend in bone-dry comfort. Do your thing anytime, anywhere.
This is a very minimal rain/touring shell. The waist has no hem drawcords, and the sleeves don't have any velcro. Instead, you get quality cinch seals, and thumb holes at the ends of the sleeves, which are super nice and comfortable. The two chest zippers double as mini vents, since on the inside of the garment there's just mesh so the air can breeze right through. This shell is definitely meant to be worn with insulation underneath. The Gore-Tex Active material is super thin and breathable.
Do yourself a favor, get another brand. I have a slightly older model Gore-Tex shell that had a zipper break. They were slow to respond and after multiple emails they finally replied that I should go get it fixed by a third party and then didn't reply when I requested that they reconsider. I was very bummed by the customer service of this company.
This is a well-made jacket ... at $370 it better be.
It is very light ... almost too light: This thing is so light and thin that I'm afraid to beat it up. I feel like it would rip really easily on a ski tour if it got snagged on a tree limb or if I brushed up against jagged rock.
It is true to fit -- I posted a picture below.
The one thing I really don't like about this coat is the elastic at the waist and the sleeves. It's annoying. It is constantly riding up in the waist and unless you use the thumb holes, the sleeves are too long and bunch up.
Honestly, I just really don't like how this coat feels. It just feels like a very niche shell ... and I don't fall into that niche as a ski tourer.
