Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Swix men's Star X jacket offers a fine mix of mobility, breathability and weather-resistance for excellent performance during fast-paced activities in cooler weather. Polyester fabric used on front of jacket and tops of arms is wind- and water-resistant and highly breathable; laser-cut vents under arms and on upper back increase ventilation. Durable Water Repellent finish causes water to bead up and roll off, fending off light rain showers and snow. Polyester and spandex panels on back, under arms and elbows and along sides offer excellent freedom of movement and breathability. Droptail hem is long in back, offering increased coverage for active sports. Drawcord hem, drawcord stretch collar, extended stretch cuffs and windflap behind front zipper all contribute to keeping warmth in and cold out. Zippered hand pockets offer easy access to essentials such as energy gels and lip balm; zippered media pocket has a cable port for easy access to your tunes. The men's Swix Star X jacket includes reflective detailing that increases your visibility in low light.
