Show Description

The 2.0 version of this jacket was good, but the 2.1 has stout waterproof zippers. Fully waterproof and still plenty breathable, it uses eVent 3-layer fabric with a moisture-dispersing membrane and lining that moves sweat away from your body. Lightweight, well-vented, and with enough reflective tape to mistake you for a landing strip, it keeps you dry and safe on your daily ride.

  • Made of three-layer eVent, with fully-taped seams.
  • Soft micro-chamois collar with extended tail for extra coverage.
  • Reflective strips all over the jacket give you 360-degree reflectivity.
  • 28cm underarm zips.
  • Large 44cm back vent for flow-through ventilation.
  • Airflow-regulating gusseted cuffs.
  • YKK Aquaguard waterproof zippers on front and back storage pocket have a storm flap and built-in rain gutter.
  • Chest pocket with audio port has a water resistant zipper.
  • Rain hood compatible (available separately).

Waterproofness

Waterproof garments use waterproof-breathable technologies and are fully seam-taped. Water-resistant garments use waterproof-breathable technologies but their seams are not taped. Water-resistant garments repel water and protect against wind but are not made of waterproof fabric.

Windproofness

A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.
