This lightweight, packable, and breathable jacket is ideal for running, hiking and nordic skiing. Windproof to 35 mph, the Bandon sheds rain, has a zippered interior security pocket, Metallion front zipper, and seams that improve fit. It has 360º reflectivity at the cuffs and hems and reflective logos on the front and back so you can light up the night. Its super-light, soft, moisture wicking liner prevents that clammy sticky feeling after exercise. A perfect balance between style and function!
Fabric: Shell: Ripstop (100% nylon) with DWR
Liner: PolySoft™ SwiftDry™

I like the looks and feel of the jacket. it's too cold where I live to wear it now so I can't comment on that. I did find it strange that there are no pockets.
Bandon jacket...good for 30 degrees with a long sleeve, under..

A suggestion on jacket design,,,,all folks vary by an inch or two on certain parts of their upper body....I love the material on the Bandon jacket, lightweight....but would you consider a vent design on the back of shoulder, sleeves, in case the jacket is tight in those areas...good for ventilation and a stretch adjustment... thanks

Fit perfectly. Packs well.
Holds heat (with an underlayer) while running down, to about 32 degrees

Perfect for those wet 40-50 degree runs.
Very well made.

Hi quality, well made and good fit
I liked the first one I ordered for running so bought a second one in a different color for bicycling. I would classify the fit as "slim", but I am older and no longer classify my body as "slim" and ideally would prefer a little more space in chest and upper arms. However, the fit is definitely acceptable on me, and that is why I ordered a second one.

Rode at Whistler downhill bike park last week in the rain and it kept me cool and dry. My favorite SportHill jacket ever for mountain bike riding and working out!
Nice jacket but odd fit

I don't run in jackets (too hot) so I bought the Bandon for walking or possibly xc skiing. Similar to the Prism jacket (discontinued) the Bandon is tight along the shoulders and very loose at the waist. If you are thin up top with a huge belly it will fit great. No drawcord at the hem. Way too much extra material. Wrist openings are a bit loose which allows the inner lining to sneak out. Like the inner pocket but placement on left would be better. Light, soft inner lining. Fit should be updated to allow more shoulder room and cut slimmer through the torso and waist.
I love the new Bandon Jacket!

I've been involved in the development of the Bandon Jacket for over a year. Living in Eugene where I run three to four times a week, go on long bicycle rides once per week, and cross country ski in the mountains, I have been searching for an ultra lightweight jacket fabric that will keep me dry in medium to light rain, can act as a wind breaker, can pack down into a small pocket, wicks sweat, and is quiet. The Bandon Jacket does it all.
