In The Knick of Time.

When the clouds start to gather over your trail running objective and you're on mile 27 out of 31, pull on the Patagonia Men's Storm Racer Jacket and push it to the top as though the skies were perfectly clear. Inspired by UTMB events and the ever-changing alpine climates that often come along with such an endeavor, the Storm Racer easily combats the toughest weather Mother Nature has to offer. The Storm Racer features a featherweight H2No exterior that protects you from downpours and light moisture, and the soft tricot lining ensures that the jacket won't stick to your shirt or body as you turn on the high-octane switch for your last mile, so you can forget about chafing and discomfort. And if the rain and clouds part, the Storm Racer easily packs down into its chest pocket, so you can store it in your pack without breaking your stride.

  • A minimalist, featherlight jacket for ultra running
  • Waterproof, breathable H2No shell with DWR seals out rain
  • Tricot lining provides a chafe-free fit
  • Low-bulk cuffs enhance mobility
  • Hood is stowable and adjustable
  • Slim fit is designed for unimpeded mobility

wonderful, super lite. fits well!

  • Fit: True to size

this is a nice jacket. recommended to those who love there rain-shadow but want something a little lighter for running.
nice zippers too.

Looks great on paper

    I really wanted to love this jacket because the specs are so great (Light, three-layer, etc.). Unfortunately, it wet through after only a 30-minute dog walk in moderate rain. Same results on a couple of short runs. Maybe I got a dud, but I don’t feel I can trust this jacket for any situation where getting wet could turn serious.

    What I've been missing....

    Although the description describes this jacket as being for perfect for ultra runners it's a perfect jacket for mountain biking and touring in the back-country on a spring day.

    I'll admit it - I am a sweater. Big TIME sweater. Whether I am in the office or on the trail/slopes or river chances are I am sweating (I have my Norwegian heritage to probably thank for that). SO when Patagonia's awesome rep, Ty Nelson let me try this jacket out I was SO stoked to have a jacket that would be breathable and able to withstand the elements inside and outside of the jacket.

    Earlier this spring I had the chance to splitboard up to Empire at Deer Valley, UT (shhh no snowboarders are allowed) and this jacket slayed it. Windy and some rain - no problem for this jacket. I have taken it out on my backyard MTB trails and the jacket's inner tricot70 lining provides a soft and smooth inner layer and keeps you warm and dry out on the trail.

    Patagonia's Best Active Rain Layer

    Email me with all your Patagonia running gear questions -

    I've been sick of the huge void between emergency shells that get me soaked after 30 minutes of precipitation and fully loaded 3-layer jackets that can't pump out heat fast enough I end up soaked from the inside and might as well be wearing an emergency shell.

    Now that I'm done venting, It's a relief to say that Patagonia has helped fill that dark void of high performing active rain layers with the Storm Racer.

    I first used the Storm Racer during a 20+mi run in the southern Utah desert, temps ranging from 45-55deg with intermittent precipitation.

    My initial feelings about the Storm Racer are that it seriously pumps out heat. It actually helped regulate my body temp better than my similarly weighted emergency shell. The fit has a slim/athletic cut which suits most runners and mtn bikers really well.

    In all, the Storm Racer is a simple and streamlined top, perfect for those who are into the self-propelled pursuits during times where everyone else is hunkered inside, away from the storm.

    Will the storm racer fit in my Patagonia running shorts Pocket? I think I have the stridor pro shorts. I'm trail running a lot in Northwest weather, but I'm looking for something that could work as a shell for Alpine climbing as well as pack into that shorts Pocket. What are your thoughts?

    waterproof Houdini

      It took me a little while to figure out and really love the Storm Racer. It's now one of my favorite jackets, and if it's nasty enough for this to come out of the closet it's sure to be a good adventure. I'm a wannabe product tester for Patagonia, so when I received this sample last spring I started going for road rides wearing it anytime I could catch a good rain storm. After a few rides I started to appreciate how sweet it is, and realized that it's really just a Houdini, made out of super lightweight 3 layer fabric. It's seam taped, and fully waterproof, while still having the same self stuffing feature of the regular Houdini. I had a chance to head to BC to ride for a week at the end of the summer, and this jacket was at the top of my packing list. I spent several days riding in it all day, and it worked incredibly well. Very breathable for a waterproof jacket, with a great fit on the bike as well. Can't really say enough good things about it, or how much I like riding in it.
