Show Description

Most breathable rain jacket ever? It might be. This zip-up GORE-TEX jacket is crafted from Shakedry fabric that’s inherently waterproof and breathable, ultra-thin, windproof, and to boot, lightweight. The innovation comes from the qualities of the fabric itself – you can literally shake it dry. There’s no DWR coating that could wear off, just exceptional waterproofing that lasts and lasts. Big reflective panels keep you visible on night rides.

  • GORE-TEX® Shakedry technology forgoes face fabric and places the waterproof-breathable membrane directly on the exterior.
  • Permanent beading surface uses no DWR finish so its waterproofness won't degrade over time.
  • Smart collar uses a Velcro adjustment tab to achieve a close fit.
  • 2-way front zip gives you venting options and allows access to jersey pockets
  • Zippered front pocket holds small items.
  • Reinforced hem has partial elastication to keep it in place.
  • Large reflective panels provide high visibility in low light.
  • Ergonomic fit is designed for comfort in the riding position.

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.

Pockets 1 front zippered
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.

Durable water repellency
