A perfect companion for aerobic winter sports, the REI Winterflyte Convertible jacket changes from a jacket to a vest in a flash.

  • Double-weave knit polyester/spandex fabric repels wind, resists water and breathes well while providing the comfort of 4-way stretch; blocks wind up to 25 mph
  • Durable Water Repellent finish causes water to bead up and roll off, fending off light rain showers and snow
  • The Winterflyte Convertible jacket dries in under 4 hrs.
  • Zip-off sleeves transform the jacket into a vest when the temperature rises, and fabric extends out over the shoulders when sleeves are zipped off to increase coverage
  • Stretchy underarm panels enhance mobility and breathability
  • Zippered handwarmer pockets and 2 internal drop-in pockets securely store necessities; headphone port facilitates easy use of tunes
  • Back zippered pocket is perfect for stowing bulky essentials such as the detached sleeves or other items
  • Cuffs feature internal gussets to keep warmth inside; thumbholes help keep the sleeves in place during aerobic activities
  • Reflective detailing increases your visibility in low light
  • Active fit offers a contoured cut with strategically placed seams so that the top moves with the body for a full range of motion

REI Winterflyte Convertible Jacket - Men'sis rated4.75out of5by4.
Rated4out of5byfromLooked Excellent, but didn't needI purchased this on sale because it fit great and it looked functional. After getting it home and debating on whether or not to keep it I decided I had too many similar items that served the same purpose. I'm sure I would have been happy with it but my NYC apartment is starting to run out of space!

Rated5out of5byfromGreat jacketVery nice jacket. Looks great, fits well, stretchy fabric. Ideal for XC skiing. Removable sleeves are a nice feature too. Fairly warm for a XC garment, so if you are a vigorous skier, you will either want to reduce the base layers or remove the sleeves to use as a vest.

Rated5out of5byfromJust what I wantedI bought this jacket to wear Cross Country Skiing. It was an excellent choice. The wind resistance allowed me to ski from 0 F to 25 F while wearing a light polypro under shirt. The jacket fits snugly so it doesn't interfere and moves with my body and does not constrict movement. This jacket has zip off sleeves but I never took them off. The large zippered pocket in the back was great for carrying extra gloves and gear and storing items I removed while skiing. The side zippered pockets were deep and secure. The color and style were added benefits

Rated5out of5byfromGreat for backpackingThis jacket is just what I was looking for. I had a fleece convertible jacket before but is is a little bulky and not wind resistant. This jacket is just that. It is great for backpacking and eliminates a garment (vest). It is great when it is cold out or starts to warm up. there is a pocket on the back that I have found makes a good place to hold some gear if you are going out on a day hike. This combined with my backpacks convertible fanny pack make going on day trips easier. the only thing I might add to my gear is a water reservoir that is small enough to fit in the backpack but has straps I can put on my back so I don't have to carry around a water bottle. Great product and I would recommend it to anyone who goes into the backcountry any time of the year.
