It’s late May and your yearly 4-day weekend in the Adirondacks with your mates and your trusty golden retriever Dakota, has been planned for months. A place to hike, camp, swim, paddle etc. An outdoor paradise and you’re an outdoor guy. It’s a tricky time of year however, weather wise. Wind, sun, fog, rain and heat can all play a factor on this playground in western New York. So let us introduce you to The Regulator. One badass regulating wind shirt boasting chameleon characteristics for changes in temperature. Made with 2ply 3 oz super soft Nylon/polyester that blocks wind, is UPF 40+ sun protection and dries in seconds. And it packs up to the size of an artichoke. We included a stand-up sun collar, underarm and side torso zippers for superb ventilation when the sun reaches its mid-day apex, and clever adjustable cuffs for rolling or pushing up the forearm. Now that is a mouthful, eh? You’re excited, Dakota is amped, and the New Jeep Wrangler JL with beefy tires is chomping at the bit. Godspeed mates.
I've been wearing the Regulator for a few weeks. Fall New England walking by the shoreline with cold winds coming off the water. I like this windshirt a lot. It's comfortable. Lots of optional ventilation resulting in a great deal of control. Significantly the zippered openings are covered with a thin mesh fabric that keeps your arms inside the shirt sleeves rather than slipping out the "pit zip" openings just as you're pulling the trunk of the shirt over your head. Well done RR. Great weight. Suitable to changing conditions. Sufficiently substantial to do some good. I haven't had it long enough to learn its limits. I also haven't worn it in the rain to date. Even so I recommend this unreservedly. Nice job.

One word Versatile. True to size I wear medium tops and this fit with full range of motion allowed.An over-shirt meets windbreaker half zip pullover with bottom drawstring. Fabric is wind resistant water resistant and stretchy. All zippers work as intended allowing great ventilation without having to take the Regulator off. A casual look without being too casual. As advertised more versatile than fleece. Rinse in cold water dries rapidly one top goes everywhere travel light folds compact extremely light weight durable fabric.

like the Railrider quality most of the RR tops fit me in a size large this seemed tight. I replaced it with an x-large and the fit was great. Quality is great design is unique. Service on the exchange was excellent. Other than the fit problem 5 star rated.
