The manufacturer claims that the Patagonia Dragonfly is “The absolute lightest shell we've ever made for high-intensity minimalist adventures.” The 2004 Patagonia Dragonfly offers a new balance point between light weight and durability. The Dragonfly's 1.1 oz triple ripstop fabric has a substantial feel and a relaxing, but not clingy, drape. This fabric is softer, more breathable, and less transparent than the fabrics used on 2003 and earlier models of the Patagonia Dragonfly. With more water resistance (but less breathability) than the current standard of Pertex Quantum and Microlight wind shirts on the market, the Patagonia Dragonfly is sure to find a niche for the active backpacker.
