If there’s any company that can claim skimo as its genetic material, it’s Dynafit. This jacket is aptly named for an audience whose speediness is only matched by their love of microscopic bindings and gel snacks. Waterwicking polyamide (aka nylon) and ventilated spandex come together in blessed union on this jacket, making it intrinsically comfy and breathable. However, it’s a winter sport, after all, so Polartec® Alpha® Direct insulation supplements warmth while remaining water repellent, wind resistant and airy. Of course, reflective accents are a must, as is a magnetic zipper intended to stay, well, zipped. Light yet warm, breathable yet weather resistant, this jacket makes an excellent standalone layer for colder skimo races or long days of continuous movement with variable conditions. Make like ribonucleic acid and replicate Dynafit’s blueprint for success with the DNA jacket.

Questions & Reviews
It fit over a Petzl Meteor, a little bit tight but not uncomfortably so. It also fits underneath the helmet quite comfortably.
