The new bitihorn dri1 Jacket is a light and waterproof jacket ideal for hiking, trail running or biking made from a recycled false twist textured yarn. Soft and comfortable, the jacket has a light and airy feel but still provides good weather protection. It is super compressible and easy to bring along whether you are trail running or having a morning run in the city. Other features include elastic cuffs, light weight hem tightening, a little chest pocket and a hood with one-hand adjustment. The athletic fit prevents unnecessary bulks from decreasing your movability. Known among employees as the ultimate safety poncho, this jacket is the perfect outer layer to keep in your pack no matter what your plans are.
A 2.5-layer technical fabric, dri™1 is constructed with face fabric laminated to a printed membrane on the backside. Without needing a liner, it is a soft, ultra-lightweight, low-volume protective material using a hydrophilic system of moisture transportation rather than microporous holes. Suitable for biking, walking, hiking and other outdoor sports where it’s important to shield the body against rain and wind.
Waterproof: min. 20,000 mm
Breathability: Very Good min. 20,000

Light, compact, comfortable, but lacks some durabilityThis jacket was my first Norrona product back in 2011 and I've been using it for hiking & mountain biking mostly. On the pro sides it is super light and compact, breath nicely and protects from the wind and rain as promised. Zippers are light and provide extra ventilation where necessary. The negative part of it is durability: material at the shoulders was worn-out so badly because of the backpacks to the end of 3rd season (Oh, those shaky trails!). First it started to "leak" when it was raining, later membrane completely separated from the base and started to rip off, so the jacket was thrown away at the end of 4th season with no chances for repair.
In general, the jacket i good, if it would be used without backpack and packed gently. So, I would not recommend it for MTB or ski-tour, but rather go for more more durable alternative.

lightweight, looks good and protects you from the wind/rainThis product is always in my biking, hiking, climbing bag - it´s just a perfect super lightweight top layer, who protects you from the wind, rain, fog... I also love the cut and the longer arms and ventilation is key on that product!
how does the current dri1 jacket compare to the shakedry and dri3 Bitihorn jackets? All say athletic fit but from the pictures it seems that the shakedry is a bit tighter. My 2013 bitihorn dri1 jacket (#1225) has a very loose fit. Thanks!
