Patagonia Dirt Craft Jacket Review
With the Dirt Craft Jacket, Patagonia is blanketing two sports with one jacket, cycling and running. The Dirt Craft Jacket is a lightweight, softshell jacket designed to keep you comfortable on your cool to cold weather runs or rides. And it does just that!
When you first slip on the jacket you will notice that it is light, stretchy and super comfortable. The Vision zipper with the cord pull makes it easy to zip up even with gloves on. The stretchy nylon/spandex material that the jacket is comprised of, allows for unrestricted movement all the way through, it is particularly excellent while running up steep climbs, where you would be using more arm movement and thus needing more mobility through your shoulders.
The Dirt Craft Jacket also helps battle nature’s elements, it tames the wind and sheds light moisture with its DWR. DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to the jackets fabric, which makes it water-resistant. The DWR finish doesn’t interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse weather conditions out on your run or ride. The jacket is also equipped with velcro tabs on the cuffs, so that you can cinch them up tight and seal out the wind and cold.
The jacket is crafted from bluesign approved fabric, so your mind will be as satisfied as your body. Products that are bluesign approved offer the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impact on people and the environment. Nice Job, Patagonia!
