Rated 4 out of 5 by from My new best friend If you love running in the rain, but hate getting soaked in the process, the Patagonia Storm Racer jacket may be your new best friend, too. The cut is nicely “fitted”, so it finds the right balance of allowing room to move while not flapping about in the wind. I’m 6’1” and 165 lbs, with a fairly athletic build, narrow waist and long arms, but found that the medium fits me very well with the extra sleeve length. What I like: The construction is impeccable, as any garment at this price tag really should be. On the outside, the materials and seam finishing give me confidence that this jacket will last a long time with proper care. Because it is a streamlined design with few extra protruding design details, it feels very natural while running, plus it’s still light and unlikely to snag on branches or the occasional rabid animal. And although it may seem minor, having a full hood that is designed to tuck away in the collar is probably what separates this jacket from comparable waterproof running jackets such as Arc’Teryx Norvan or Salomon S-Lab Hybrid. On a windy day in a light rain, you may not need the hood, but probably don’t want it loosely flapping around. In a steady downpour, the adjustable brimmed hood keeps the rain out but still permits good peripheral vision without having to dramatically turn your head. So, the Storm Racer covers a lot of possible weather conditions. On the inside, the lining is perforated for ventilation, and features a soft wicking fabric on the back of the neck to prevent chafing. Some people take issue to the fact that there is only a single internal breast pocket on this jacket – in my opinion, why would you need more while running? Unless you’re otherwise running naked, chances are you have other garments with pockets to choose from to stash items that may not need the full protection from the elements. Fewer pockets mean less bulk and less chance for water seepage. I am also a big fan of the little details, such as the elastic diagonal cuff to protect the back of the hands from rain and wind, the single-pull drawstring waist, and reflective patches. Performance-wise, the rear mechanical vents really work well to expel heat under high-output conditions. I’m not going to say that I always finish my run feeling fresh as a daisy, but I also don’t get soaked from the rain or from my own sweat in the process. I have found the usable temperature range to be between the mid-20s (with suitable layering) up to the low-50s. In the Midwest, that covers a good part of the spring and fall, and even most of the winter where it’s even bearable to step outside. What I’m unsure of: I find the front arm vents to be both useful and a nuisance. In strenuous workouts, having them open really helps to ventilate the jacket. When closed, the zipper hood keeps the zippers from noisily flapping about. However, because the jacket material is not fully pliable, using the zippers and pull tabs while on the move is a bit tricky, as it requires holding the cuff and giving concerted, straight pulls. Plus, there is no mesh backing on the front vent openings, so rain can come in both directly, and as it rolls off the shoulders. However, I’m not sure of another solution that’s both as functional and easy to use. I’m also slightly disappointed in the fabric choice itself for two reasons. One is that it is a non-Gore-Tex material. I have no reason to doubt the choice of the DWR-finished nylon, but Gore-Tex is a proven material that similar jackets use at this price point. Second is the noise from the jacket while moving – it isn’t a “loud” fabric construction by any means, but it is noticeable, especially since the liner material is smooth, but definitely not soft. A “quieter” fabric would likely not be as functional, lightweight or durable, so I don’t really consider it as much of a complaint as just a point of note for people who are expecting this jacket to be ninja-approved. Ultimately, as long as the jacket keeps me dry, disperses heat and lasts many years, the fabric choice is really a non-issue. What I don’t like: I’m a big proponent of safety, especially being visible. Vibrant colors are a good thing in low-light conditions, but I would generally prefer to have a choice of colors, or at least different primary color to chartreuse (aka neon yellow). It’s one of those colors only a mother could love – and in light of the competing jackets out there around the same price, more color options would be nice. However, this shouldn’t be a huge consideration for people who appreciate practicality over aesthetics. On the practical side, however, I’m not a big fan of the metal zippers pulls. They are YKK, which is good, but because they’re metal, they jingle a bit, and can get cold and slippery. It would strike me that a durable plastic zipper would be a better choice for a rain garment. All in all, this is a great jacket where the positives more than outweigh the few nit-picky issues. For some, the price may not be justified, but if you are serious enough of a runner to want to frequently be out in the rain, this is one of those investments that will quickly pay you back.
