Soon to become the most valuable garment in your arsenal, the Up Jacket features a DWR-treated superlight stretch nylon rip-stop fabric that blocks wind, repels light rain, and packs up to the size of a beer can. Perfect for shoulder-season hiking, running, riding, and training, the Up Jacket provides breathable, supremely packable protection from the elements that fits in your pocket. It's up for anything—biking, climbing, scrambling, dancing or prancing—and we’ve heard the fish can’t spot our tie-dye either, although they may just be caught up in the groove.
IDEAL FOR: OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES THAT REQUIRE EMTREMELY PACKABLE, LIGHTWEIGHT PROTECTION
*The Black-Ice Tie Dye is a "real" tie-dye, not a print. Therefore, like a snowflake, no two Tie Dye Up Jackets are the same. You're extra-special and we celebrate that with these one-of-a-kind creations!
The Up Jacket relies on the simple and functional attributes of a 100% nylon ripstop shell to create a durable, lightweight, and extremely packable garment.
Mechanical stretch combined with a durable ripstop pattern. The 100% nylon yarns have excellent tear strength and are finished with a "false-twist" which gives the surface of the yarn and final woven fabric an extra resistance to abrasion.
To make the Up Jacket windproof, we finished the nylon woven fabric with a breathable PU coating. The coating is air-premeable, allowing your body's vapor to escape freely, while providing a windproof barrier on the exterior of the woven fabric.
A high-quality DWR coating enhances the performance of the fabric by protecting the surface from dirt and oils. We only use DWR coatings based on the environmentally friendlier short-chain (C6) fluorine compounds, which won't degrade in the environment into PFOS and PFOA.

This is my constant companion in my backpack. It weighs next to nothing and folds down to a tiny package. It does everything a good wind shirt is supposed to do and the Push Pop color is fun and bright (always a plus when on a bike). The hood fits nicely and helps hold in heat. The zipper is long enough that you can take it on and off without having to take off a helmet in case that's a concern. The hood does however not fit over a helmet but I think it works really well underneath because it's so thin. he fabric is smooth and not plasticky at all. I came into an unexpected downpour the other day and the Up jacket kept me warm and dry enough during the sprint back to the car. This is not a rain jacket and it won;t hold up to hours in the rain but will do the trick in a pinch. Sizing is accurate as shown in the video. I ordered both Medium and Small but ended up keeping the Medium because I liked the extra length. (I normally wear medium in most clothes and am usually a Small or Medium in the Trew tops and jackets I have). The hood fit me better in the small but I traded that off for more butt coverage. I had originally thought that the hood would be in the way when riding my bike if I don;t have it on my head but it has not been an issue at all. If you;re looking for an awesome wind shirt, look no further, especially if you catch this on a sale.
