The fabric on this pullover is fantastic. Slightly stretchy but it blocks wind and snow. It hits a sweet spot in terms of warmth for me between 25 and 35 degrees F. The main issue I have is similar to so many other similar products: I get really warm in my core when running, but my arms get really cold. So many running jackets (this one included)... Read More put breathable fabric on the forearms rather than wind blocking fabric. This leaves me with frozen forearms when I finish a wet run. This pullover would be perfect if they extended the shell fabric over the front/top part of the forearms and added some more ventilation under the arms and back. I will forever be confused why companies make this same mistake over and over when everyone I talk to here in Minnesota has the same complaints.

Excellent multi weather running gear
Very happy with this overall. As mentioned it runs small! I own many Patagonia items and this is my first Large. I am an athletic 6' 0" and 175 lbs. I bought both a Medium and Large. The medium fit but was too snug to allow any layering. I am very happy with the Calipene sleeves and hood. Deep vent to dump heat when hot. Is able to pack s... Read Moreuper small for trips. Looking forward to using this for years to come.
Lightweight shell for aerobic activity.
Lightweight shell for aerobic activity. I use it for outdoor running in northern VT with temperature range of 25 -50 degrees F. I use layers underneath when its colder. Light weight and easily packable. Fits easily into hydration pack. I like it so much I have bought this shell as a present. It is a slim fit. I am 5 feet 9 inches and weigh 150
Not quite for Me.
I was looking for something that could bridge the gap between something like a Houdini and a Capilene and it seemed like this was the obvious choice. Having used a houdini and other capilene midlayers/baselayers and longsleeves I thought this would be the ideal product for me. It was just a really weird - way too slim - way too long fit compared to... Read More all their other slim fit medium pieces. But to be fair I also am quite short and little wider, but this just draped over my torso and landed at my mid thigh when I put it on.

Order a size up!
This is a specialized piece, and I definitely wouldn't buy this except for running in like, the 40-50F range. I love it as a slim, incredibly lightweight layer for my runs that doesn't really keep me warm, it just keeps me from getting cold. That said, SIZE UP! I am someone who wears Small for everything. I'm 5'11", 150 lbs... Read More and like slimmer fits, and with a few exceptions almost always wear Smalls--95% of things I try on in Medium feel like they're hanging off my body. This is the least-stretchy piece of clothing I have ever owned. I was technically able to put the Small on, but it felt like I was at risk of tearing the shirt and was suffocatingly tight. I nearly had to get help from a friend to take it off it was so tight and restrictive once I got it on. The Medium size is still honestly tighter and harder to get on than most of my Small shirts, but that's just because it has zero stretch to it. So if this piece interests you and there's ANY question to you about what size to get, get the bigger size. I give it 4*, just docking 1* for the sizing issue--it's pretty specialized in use but very good for those circumstances and something I love using whenever possible.

Excellent piece of technical gear with weird fit
I bought this because I was struggling to find a running top for the winter. Shell jackets I tried had me sweat soaked a mile or two in. Running shirts/insulating layers became bulky and left me very chilled as the wind picked up. This shirt will cover me from 0-30 f with the right under layer (although its tight enough the option is thin tank up t... Read Moreo thin long sleeve). I think at a colder temp, real high wind, or a walk/hike pace I may need a less permeable wind shirt. My only gripe is that the shoulders chest is cut for fairly skinny build. I tried an xl and it fit my chest and shoulders perfectly but was awkwardly long. Overall I am very happy with this piece because of the temp range and conditions I have used it to cover for my use case

A great sun shirt
I had been thinking of a sun shirt to replace my long sleeve base layer. Something with a hood to protect my neck from the sun. Patagonia has one for fishing, but it was not exactly what I was looking for. Colin Haley has a blog called Skagit Alpinism, and recently he had a review of some Patagonia clothes that he digs. I really admire his writing ... Read Morehe has a piercing clarity and lack of ego. In this recent piece he talked this shirt up: It is just what I was looking for. For my action suit I wear a t-shirt base layer, this piece, an R1 hoody, then some puffer. Normally I wear a large in Patagonia clothing. I followed the fit guide and got this in an XL. The fit is almost snug; perfect. I can easily slide the sleeves over my forearms. The double zipper seemed like more than I needed, but I find it very useful. I can zip open the hood and open up the bottom without disturbing the pack sternum strap. Its a little thing, but I like it. Now this is something extra that I don't know where to put. Somewhere Mr. Chouinard, in one of his books, has a table on the environmental cost of shipping things. All I recall is that by ship its not much. Not much by rail. More by truck, and a lot by air. I suggest that Patagonia start a by ground only shipping option. I would even pay more for it. Besides the environmental benefit I think it would be educational for people seeing the option. Just my thoughts
Comfort & Versatility
This is my go to wind shirt! I love the versatility of retaining body heat with the hood and long sleeves but then comfortably pushing up the sleeves, venting with the front zip, wearing a hood that breathes/move moisture. I cant believe how well it functions in a wide range of temperatures.
Specialized piece for the quiver-durability questionable
I normally wear a medium in most cap/Patagonia base layers to get the maximum benefit of next to skin moisture wicking, so I went with the medium and it fits like a glove and is just right. (6 175#) For me theres still enough room to fit a base layer under but I have also used it solo to run up to around 40F with and its great. The GOOD: Wind bloc... Read Moreking of pertex is not 100% (its not meant to be but its actually pretty effective). I absolutely love the ability to modulate heat dumping as I begin to really warm up and also on descents to zip back up to retain heat. I find that wearing this alone or with a base layer covers me in a wide range of temperature from the low teens to the 40s. (F) The Not So Good: I wanted to warn anyone thinking about this layer that its an incredibly specialized piece to add to your quiver. Took it out with a cap base layer under it for a 12mile trail run/hike in about 20-10F weather on a local mountain with decreasing temp as I moved up in elevation. It is a superb piece, BUT my day pack I was wearing with food water and emergency supplies shredded (now bunched, piled and seams are starting to pull) the ultralight Pertex back panel of the garment and the function of it is most certainly affected there. This was after my first inaugural use. This is marketed for running especially shoulder season as a multifunction piece, but if you plan on carrying any gear/water for medium to ultra-long endeavors in a pack you might want to steer clear of this as the ultralight Pertex paneling of the main body appears not durable enough for extended abrasion resistance. Will test this to failure like I do with most of my gear and report back if needed. Patagonia I know it takes up server space, which equates to carbon but please bring back the ability to post photos in reviews, so we can show expected wear patterns on clothing and limitations of gear as well as battle scars on our well-worn stuff! Well waste less carbon by not ordering a an inappropriate for use piece in the first place, and your clothing designers might get a good sample size of where gear is failing to improve upon it.

Helps cut the wind without sacrificing breathability for cold, windy winter runs
I wear this as an outer layer to cut the wind during cold, windy runs through the winter when it's typically 20-40 outside. This item is very thoughtfully designed. It provides a little shielding from the wind but doesn't overheat me. Traditional running 'jackets' make me WAY too hot and aren't breathable. I really like how... Read More lightweight it is, and I like how the sleeves can be pushed up the forearm. The zipper has a very deep cut which I love, and the zipper is actually 2-way so it can be opened from the bottom. When the zipper is all the way up, the neck resembles a soft buff. I don't find myself using the hood very often but it's well designed and it doesn't catch the wind or flop around when it's not in use. I usually wear a t-shirt, then a base layer, then this Airshed top. I really like how this fits me with the slim cut. I'm running around 20-35 miles per week in NYC, often at night and often in high wind situations along the Hudson.
The only layer you need for most things*
*By most things, I mean wind, light rain, and variable temperatures anywhere between 45-65. I live in Southern California and need a layer 1 out of every 5 days between November and March. But I used to live in San Francisco, where I think this piece would really shine. Function: It's not perfectly windproof, it's not perfectly waterpro... Read Moreof, but if you're dealing with mist, fog, or wind, or any combination of, this is a pretty unbeatable piece. It's enough to cut the chill that would otherwise come about when either stopping, or turning a corner and getting a blast of wind, but it's breathable enough that you won't overheat. My go to trail-running kit would typically be a Houdini jacket stuffed into a running vest to be put on over a short-sleeve. I think that's still a good combo, but airshed pro pullover does pretty much everything the same while remaining much more comfortable and breathable. I would say Houdini might excel if you're hiking, but this excels when running. Fit: Verges on a little tight but made up for in stretch. I'm 5'5" and 130, and wouldn't change a thing. Appreciate the longer sleeves, especially because this piece excels in temps where I wouldn't want gloves but having extra fabric is nice to have. Looks: Stellar. One of my favorite purchases from Patagonia.
Super small & tight, super thin material. Awful.
5'6", 130 pound man, typical distance runner build. I could barely get the small over my head. After I did, the pullover was tight against my rib cage and underarms. The material is thin and cheap-feeling. I am not the kind of person who buys stuff and sends it back; but, in this case, I am. This was a huge miss from my favorite clothing ... Read Morecompany.
What I've been missing
I keep grabbing this even though I have a half dozen other wind jackets/pull-overs I've accumulated over the years.

They also make it comfortable to wear with just a tshirt, which isn't the case with most windshirts. Good for running, skimo, nordic, mtb/fatbiking and climbing - if you want to just leave your windbreaker layer on for the duration. If you're carrying something for protection for part of your excursion, grab a houdini - less breathable but more wind resistance.
Best Patagonia product out there
I've bought so many of these jackets for family and friends that I've lost count. This jacket has so many uses. I've used it as a layer for skiing, paddle boarding, hiking and to run around town. It does an amazing job self-regulating body temperature and can be worn all seasons and easy to pack. It even folds up into my fanny pack w... Read Morehen I'm hiking. Keep making more colors.
Best outer layer for dry weather
Use this jacket for high-output activities in dry weather (as it is not water repellent). Slim fit, but enough space for some extra layers if necessary. Develops no odour over time.

To Thin for Winter Running is LA
The size medium is really a size small. I don't know why clothing companies do that. This jacket is also much thinner than I thought it would be so, I returned it immediately.

Hi Robert! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with the pullover. We appreciate your comments and we'll share this with our design team.
Perfect for cool weather
I bought the light blue version. It's delightful: Lightweight yet warm enough. The fabric is super comfortable. The sleeve length and construction plus the hood make it adaptable to a few different conditions in low teens/high single digit temps (C). It's my preferred running shirt. You guys make wonderful clothes.
Nice Piece, glad I purchased!!
Really love this hoodie. Perfect for cool/windy, cold days running trails in the mountains. Wrist to elbow and hood wicking material take away that clammy touch. Perfect over t-shirt that wicks moisture thru this shell. The Bonus is this pairs perfectly with my Storm Racer Jacket when really cold or really raining or snowing. I had to go a size up ...

Favorite Layer for the Mountains
This has become my favorite layer PNW Volcano season, biking, and alpine rock climbs.

This is a perfect layer to have for trail runs in Northern California, a slight extra layer that fits snug (including the hood) and can shade from sun and add just a bit of shelter from the cold foggy ocean winds.

Like a few other folks, I wear this primarily as a baselayer, typically as a stand-alone piece. It comprises two superb fabrics and manages moisture very, very well. The deep two-way zip is excellent (very effective at boosting airflow and dumping heat) and the hood provides an almost perfect amount of coverage without impacting vision. Unlike many... Read More ultralight hooded shirts, the hood stays put, does not flop around when running or in high wind, and layers cleanly under a helmet or other layers. I find the cut/sizing to be perfect. Durability is the obvious concern, given the materials and price, but I have a very hard time complaining given the undeniable performance. The only thing I would remove is the stash pouch in the back of the hood. I think this is extraneous on a piece that is otherwise so cleanly minimalist. This is a unique piece of gear. Leave it to Patagonia to come up with something like this. I am aware of maybe only one other halfway comparable design from any other manufacturer that approximates the materials and performance (relative to my use case). It will probably not be like anything else in your closet. (To the design team: please put some thought into a sun protection hoody with identical fit and features but higher UPF materials. Something like that would be an excellent companion to the Airshed Pro. When it comes to sun protection, especially on rock, snow or ice, I find most sun hoodies much too boxy and baggy. I.e. not very great for dynamic, high-output movement. I would love to see a shirt that fits like the Airshed Pro, with the same design features, but incorporating more sun-protective materials for those warm/hot, long, fast, ultra-high UV exposure days.)

The RURB (Realized Ultimate Reality Baselayer)
After my experience with the Airshed windshirt I wanted a hooded windshirt version. I didn't get it in the Airshed Pro. Instead I got a fully-realized version of those baselayer tops with the wind-block front panels. How I've used the Airshed Pro so far: 1. Hiking in windy conditions in temps from 40s to 60s. Layer a light baselayer bene... Read Moreath (short sleeve or long), wear with baseball cap and maybe gloves. Pull on or remove the hood as needed. Pull on shell layer if really blustery or precip. 2. Snowshoeing. Wear w/ L/S Cap Lightweight baselayer beneath and wind shell over (an old Krushell) for comfort in gusty mid 20s (F) conditions. 3. Biking. Layer beneath a jersey for extra wind blocking. Pull on the hood beneath the helmet if it's chill. Even with a wind jacket, riding in cool conditions always means air infiltration. An inner layer helping to block that makes a surprising difference in comfort. 4. Sleeping. Worn as part of sleep clothes the Airshed Pro stops the air infiltration at the shoulders with my down quilt. And the hood is right there if I feel cold. I've come to really like this thing. The Airshed fabric breathes well and blocks some air movement. The Capilene lower arms and hood offer a way to save heat or shed it with little wearer input or delay of game. The fabric dries quickly if it gets wet. It's bugproof. I prefer wearing a Capilene lightweight shirt beneath, but I have worn next to skin and Airshed is surprisingly comfortable. The pullover weighs basically nothing, and wads into a little ball if I'm not wearing it. It brings a lot for not much weight. Some details. Sizing. My Airshed windshirt XL fits like a sack. I brought the Pro in L, and it's...snug. Very snug. I could not wear more than a light - maybe midweight - baselayer beneath. After using, I don't think you should try to wear with more than that. Despite the snug fit, movement is good with the Pro. I don't feel constrained while wearing, only when putting on or taking off. The hood. Like the R1 hoody, the Airshed Pro hood is like a light, perfectly fitting, balaclava sewn to the neck. Great face coverage when zipped up, easy to shed when unzipped. Sleeves. The Capilene lower sleeves feel fragile. They haven't proven so in use, but I'd push up the sleeves before crack climbing in this shirt. BTW, pushing up the sleeves helps cool down, more that I expected it would. Pocket. There isn't one, and I think it could use one. Just a chest pocket like the Airshed windshirt had... I haven't figured out all the ways the Airshed Pro pullover fits into my existing clothing systems, but I think it has a lot of potential. I've liked it a lot for the systems I've added it to so far.
Great featherweight for races
This jacket is perfect for an over layer on my race suit for skimo races. Super light but cuts just enough wind that I have piece of mind once I start going higher that Im not going to get wind burn at the summit. Honestly I forget its even on me or in my pack. Exactly what I wanted and it hasnt disappointed. The zipper can probably be upgraded to...

I bought this for cold weather running and have been very pleased with its performance. For 40 degrees (Fahrenheit) and up, I wear a short sleeve under it.

6'2" 220lbs/ lean build, 44ish chest and bigger shoulders. This is a cool looking and functional piece of running gear. I like the anorak styles that are popping up everywhere. The sleeves are more spandex and allow it to easily roll up when you get warm and they won't work their way down like other jacket sleeves. The piece is SUPER... Read More thin.

Take the edge off
Not as much of a wind lock as I imagined, but Ive come to appreciate it for higher output activities. It breathes really well and takes the edge off the wind just enough while riding my bike. I appreciate the deep front zipper to dump heat in an instant. I chose to go with a large based on prior reviews and glad I did. A medium would have simply be...

Very good, but could use a few tweaks.
I have had an (non-hooded) Airshed pullover, and after several years of use, I wanted another, but it has evolved into the Airshed Pro.

It makes me wonder whether I will rip the pullover when I remove ... Read Moreit. The forearms are not as wind-protected as in the original. I guess that is intentional. The hood is problematic. The zipper is in the midline, so when it closes, it is very tight over the chin. It would be better if the zipper were not midline, but followed the path of a one-armed Y, so it closed at the jaw. The cut at the chin could be more generous so it weren't so tight, or perhaps it could go higher to cover the mouth with a mesh fabric. It would be nice if the pocket were restored. I really loved the original non-hooded Airshed pullover and would love to buy another. I used to wear it throughout winter in the Northeast with a balaclava on sub-zero (Fahrenheit) days, and it was perfect. This could better in the ways described above.

Thermal management genius piece of kit
This is the best piece of trail running kit I own (and I don't say this lightly). I love it so much I've just bought a second one (in case they go out of stock in X years). There are 4 things I just love about it: 1. The hood – this super soft and stretchy hood is easy to pull up/down and stays put in strong winds 2. The windshield in th... Read Moree front keeps you protected from the wind when needed 3. The garment is super breathable and super light (great for hard efforts when you would usually get really hot and the traditional wind-stoppers would become damp) 4. The long tight-er fitting super stretchy sleeves are easy to pull up down as needed I've been using mine the whole summer/autumn/winter on trails in the UK – come strong gale strength winds, rain or just a nice day out in the mountains. From Lake District to Snowdonia and Seaside cliffs of Dorset. I'm 180cm tall and I find size M to be perfect if you intend on using a mid-weight base layer underneath the garment, and just bought a size S which is great for wearing next to skin or on top of a lightweight base-layer. Highly recommend getting one.
Almost perfect !
I used it almost every day in Fall and Winter for running and nordic ski. Very versatile piece of equipment that allows to face any change of weather condition. I love it a lot. Only downside: please bring us back the integrated sleeves mittens option you had with the all weather zip neck hoody, that was a fantastic add.
Airshed Pullover Pro
First, let me say that when I run, I run hot. Ive been trying for a while to figure out what to wear on 40-50 degree days. I would do a regular ultra light cap long sleeve shirt and run cold because of sweat evaporating and getting me cold in the wind. This jacket covers the temp range I needed and more. If the temps warm up a little just pull the ... Read Moresleeves up and fully zip down front. It allows for me to dump a lot of heat quickly. For cooler days, the hood and extra long sleeves let me leave a hat and gloves in the jeep. Just put the hood up and roll in the longer sleeves and I am good. I wish they would have put another piece of fabric for your fingers to go in. I fell I. Love with the first one so much I purchased another one in black.
This pullover is ideal for the indecisive, and for in-between conditions when neither jacket nor t-shirt is quite right. From starting off being unsure if the mix of fabrics would work, I've been surprised just how often I've reached for it our mixed British weather when running and mountain biking. It rarely stays at home, in fact. The l... Read Moreack of features hasn't been a downside: minimalism is what it does well. The body fabric strikes the right balance for me between protection and breathability. Note: it is *not* a jacket in the windproof/showerproof sense, but more like an ultra-light midlayer. Used correctly I think it's an ideal piece of gear.
no more elbow sweat!
I own the hoodless version:Just enough to keep the extreme chill off while trail running in windy 30 degree weather maintaining the cool/cold feeling with only a short sleeve later underneath. it breaths super-great with no chance of clammy-ness. At 5'11" 195lbs with strong paddlers shoulders a Large fits perfect with a layer underneath (... Read Morea slimfit mid-layer could be added) this could also be used as a midlayer.

Read Morech is why I want a hood. The zipper placement is awful when zipped, nearly choking me. The back panel is the same fabric as the front panel, which is the last place where I want wind protection. Is it a good-looking, fun layer? Yeah, very much so. But I haven't figured out what it's good for. Did they test this thing at all in the field? Maybe it's good for golfing in 55 degrees.
Response from PatagoniaOctober 26, 2021
Thank you for your feedback on the Mens's Airshed Pro Pull Over. We are sorry to hear that it is not what you expected. Layering wise it is really a multi faceted piece. You can add a base layer under it, and wear either a Houdini or Nano on top for colder and gusty days, or you can just use the Airshed it's self for more mild ones. Then always of course if does not work out you are always welcomed to return it.
Great piece of trail kit
It was much lighter out of the box than I expected but the warmth from it was fantastic. I have been using it during hikes and runs as a lightweight shell to deflect the wind. The integrated sleeves are phenomenal for heat control too. Great piece of trail kit for sure. Every runner needs one just like the Houdini :)
Incredibly versatile. Expensive, but if I was to have only one technical shirt in my closet I would probably choose this. For me it functions as a perfect 3.5 season mountain baselayer. Combines two excellent fabrics. Exceptional moisture management - absorbs very little water, dries very fast. Breathes well and the two-way zip is great for dumpin... Read Moreg heat. Hood protects neck and ears nicely. Cut is perfect for active movement and layers cleanly under insulation and/or shells. Construction is very clean. Durability is as youd expect given the design/materials. 6 feet tall; ~165 lbs; 40.25 chest; 15.2 neck; Medium is a perfect trim fit. Last time I was this psyched about a piece of Patagonia gear was the Nano Air.
Awesome piece of kit
Simply amazing piece for alpine and winter running that just works exactly as it should!

I am a climber that runs and although slim maybe I don't have a typical runners build so for me fit was a bit snug around my chest (41") which I was concerned about at first but in actual use has never hindered me and works well under a running vest which I like. Just something to be aware of if you have broader shoulders.
Leadville Trail 100 User Ultra Marathon musthave
Wore this piece of kit going and down Hope Pass during the Leadville Trail 100 Run.

Incredibly versatile bit of kit. Super breathable so I don't find myself having to take it on and off on long fell runs. Protective against light to moderate wind and a light shower here and there.

Best Multi Temperature Shirt Ever
This is the best multi-temperature running shirt I have ever owned. I start my run with the hood on, zipped up, and sleves down...

I’ve had the Airshed Pro pullover for over 6 months. It has worked perfectly for running in almost all weather conditions, from -5 degrees C in winter to 20 degrees C in Summer. It very much appeals to my minimalist sensibilities being that one piece replaces the need for a hat and gloves. It is lightweight and washes well (I’ve notice no wear an... Read Mored tear at all after multiple washes). The sleeves roll up easily when you get too warm and pull down nicely over hands in place of gloves. Using the long front zip you can dump heat reasonably well when needed. The hood, which I’ve only used when it’s particularly cold at the start of a run, is a great replacement for a bulky hat. You may want a waterproof layer on top if it’s a particularly heavy downpour, but even then I’ve found the Airshed to be fine without being that it dries out quickly when the rain subsides. Overall a superb piece for running, which happens to look pretty good too!
Cycle, Run, Hike
Pullover is lightweight, reasonably windproof/short light showerproof, and has a not too tight or baggy fit.

Wasn’t sure when I’d use it...
I bought this shirt when I bought the endless shorts. I wasn’t entirely sure how it’d fit into my current gear set up. I am a fan of gilets, as I generally overheat pretty quickly in a long sleeve mid layer. However, this shirt is different. I’ve used it on pretty much every trail run to date, it’s wind protection is superb, especially when you are... Read More on the tops and I don’t seem to overheat, unless I’m working really hard. The longer sleeves do enough to keep your hands warm, although bear in mind it is spring. It packs down unbelievably small! This is my go to now, especially on longer runs and when it warms up I’ll be carrying it in my pack as an extra layer. Both this and the endless shorts are game changers in my opinion!
Crazy Versatile Hoodie
Love this hoodie. Used for running, skiing, mountain biking. Nice balance of breathability and minimal wind protection. Hood is great under or over a helmet. Packs up small, dries quick.

Breathes very well, the arms are stretchy and soft, but have not lost any elasticity since the first day, about a week so far, of every day wear. The pullover feels warm on a spring morning, and although I wish I could feel more wind protection, I dont think I would sacrifice the breathability and pliability for a more windproof fabric. I believe in the power of layering, this garment is quick to stow and deploy, and for 3 seasons at least, it will provide ample flexibility to layer for running and riding.
First, the pullover fits well but is on the slim side so it is not made to go over many layers. Ive used it a few times and found it to not block wind like I thought it would. It is thin so it didnt provide much heat in the 40s. I wore it on its own in the 60s and it stuck to me. The long zipper does allow it to open to let out heat. I think Id onl...

I'm great in this with a t-shirt under if I'm running and it's 40 outside, a mid weight capeline base layer would cover you for colder weather.) It's just a great, super light, super packable outer layer. Ideal for running or skinning. It'd be good for climbing if you were doing single pitch stuff in windy conditions, however, it won't replace a Houdini for a lightweight windshell to throw on at chilly belays. If I could think of a reason to buy another one, I would.
Airshed Pro Pullover - surprisingly good
Came highly recommended by a friend, and having not tried anything like this before I was sceptical.

The hood is a nice add also, fits well with no fussing around with adjustments when it gets windy up high and dont notice it when its down.
holy smokes this thing is cool. It's the kind of jacket/shell/shirt that only Patagonia could come up with.

What a Surprise
Buying this coat was a shot in the dark because I didn't know what to expect.

Sorry the sizing of the Airshed Pro Running Pullover didn't work for you, Matt. This design is slim fit and specialized to fit the intended sport (in this case, running). If you're looking for a more casual windbreaker, you could consider something from the [Houdini line](https://www.patagonia.com/search/?q=Men%27s+Houdini&lang=en_US).

Essential for every run
Ive been looking at the Airshed Pro Pullover since the High Endurance Kit was introduced last year, but decided to wait and see what some of the reviews were before purchasing. Now that my ultramarathon training is starting up for the year, I decided to wait no longer, and Im sure glad I bought it. Im 57, 140 pounds and with the slim fit of this pu... Read Morellover, I purchased a size medium and it fits me perfectly. For reference I wear a size small in the Crosstrek 1/4 zip, better sweater, capilene trail tees, and Snap-T. I also purchased the Storm Racer jacket to wear over my running vest, and for that the size small fit me perfectly. This item is perfect for trail running, when youre moving quickly and the heart is pumping. It blocks a bit of wind and the two zippers allow you to vent easily. I also love the hood, Ive been able to go without a beanie on colder days. When it gets hotter, the sleeves are easy to pull up your arms, effectively turning this into a short sleeve top. The one thing I will say is that I think the Airshed Pro Pullover is perfect for what it is advertised as, a running top. If youre looking for a bit more warmth while hiking, this isnt it. But I think it could be used as good sun protection for hiking in the summer months, though I havent had it long enough to try.
My Go To Cool/Cold Weather Piece
I tend to be cold natured but I run year round so I need good gear. This is the piece I always grab when the temps hovering either above or below freezing - especially with a wind.

This shirt is amazingly functional. When you pick it up and put it on you are skeptical, How is this supposed to keep me warm like the spokesperson in the video says it will??

Just a great piece of kit
Have been running with this for the past 6 months and can’t find any faults. Perfect for a wide range of weather, packs super small, snug fit and clever zips and sleeves provide lots of options to find just right temperature. Just a great piece of kit.
More than just for running
This is my go to piece for backcountry skiing, running, and biking. The hood is awesome to deploy in lieu of a hat. Fits great under/over a hat and great under a helmet.

Great trail running friend
Love the fact how this shirt is slim and fits over 1 (or 2) thin layers. I wear it running and usually wear a long sleeve shirt underneath. The built in hood is snug and keeps you warm. Being able to keep the hood on and then using the lower zipper to dump heat is a great feature. Glad I got a L. Medium would have been a bit snug I guess.
Comfortable, warm piece of kit
First things first: this piece runs VERY small, even compared to other "Slim Fit" Patagonia tops.

For something so lightweight, it works remarkably well. I had been waiting for months for the HEK to be released, so I bought this immediately without seeing it in person.
