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.

This pullover seems like a jacket at first, but after wearing it last fall it has become my favorite long sleeve mountain bike jersey every. It's basically just a single layer of Nano Air shell fabric, without any insulation. Still has the DWR coating for wind and light protection from water, and a good amount of stretch to it. Fit for my sample was fairly slim, I still wore my regular medium size, but it was more comfortable with a short sleeve T underneath as opposed to long sleeve. Some people might be psyched if they size up depending on how slim of a fit they're looking for.
I use this as a complement to my Houdini, I always have one of them with me when I head out for a ride or run. The Airshed is really like a stretchy breathable counterpart to the Houdini, and it self stuffs into it's chest pocket for storage. I'll wear the Airshed for an entire ride, where the Houdini is usually used when the weather gets nasty, or for a chilly DH back to the car.

This thing is great and super easy to use. I have a compressor, but hate firing it up in the home garage since I don't use it that often, and there are times when the compressor actually doesn't work that well to seat a tubeless tire. The Airshot works flawlessly every time and is a much better option than the compressor, or trying to pump like a madman with your floor pump. It usually helps to remove the presta valve core since the Airshot adapter will screw right into the valve stem. Another bonus is that this travels well and you can use it on the road or camping if you need to. Definitely would recommend!
