Explore Hooded GORE-TEX Pullover

A waterproof hooded rain jacket designed for year-round adventure


Made for exploration rather than speed, this quarter-zip waterproof pullover makes use of GORE-TEX Active™, a lightweight three-layer construction that’s waterproof and breathable. With a new, more relaxed fit and soft next-to-skin feel, the jacket is comfortable on and off the bike, no matter what you’re wearing underneath. Should your adventure take you off-road, there are several technical features to keep you comfortable. The storm hood features an elasticated closure to keep the weather at bay and can be worn with or without a helmet. A large chest pocket with internal mesh dividers keeps riding rations and maps out of the rain and close to hand. Reflective stripes on the side panels and dots on the rear ensure you stay seen in low light conditions. Once night falls, the jacket packs down into an integrated stuff sack which doubles as a pillow for overnight pit stops, or smaller still to fit inside your jersey pocket.

“The Explore has proven to be a very versatile jacket and one that I could imagine taking on an adventure. It’s can tackle gravel, mountain biking, the daily commute, running or just wearing with jeans around town. It’s relaxed, functional, retro-styled, waterproof and breathable. What’s not to love?”
