Or, check out the Patagonia Houdini, which is even lighter and compresses smaller. But if you want jacket for high heart rate activities in cooler temps, go with the Marmot Driclime. Both the Houdini and DriClime windshirt are the two pieces of outerwear we use mostget em both if you can! And, if you want to see how these all compare, check out our Wind Breaker Jacket Review.
The DriClime is ideal for trail running, mountain biking, rock climbing. and high heart rate activities in general. Three things stand out: it does not stick to your skin when you sweat, it blocks the wind, and it is very breatheable. The fact it has a full zipper means you can unzip it almost all the way to ventilate on a steep hill climb. It is optional to wear a shirt underneath it. If you are not wearing a shirt, having it fully unzipped vents it out fast! It has a chest pocket perfect for a phone or MP3 player. Overall, we are quite impressed.
The DriClime is now available in new colors; keep reading to compare the changes.
