Show Description

Windproof and water-resistant, the fabric stands up to "yuck" weather, so your 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. And zip off sleeves turn it into a vest when the day heats up. Highly reflective and well-fitted, it's a versatile shield from the wet and wind.

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.
