Show Description

Windproof and water-resistant, the fabric stands up to "yuck" weather, so your morning ride can go ahead as scheduled. A full zip requires no elaborate over-the-head manoeuvers if the deluge turns out to be a flash storm. Highly reflective and well-fitted, it's an shield for days when you need one.

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.

Length Hip-length
