The next generation of the Hooded Rain Jacket has been designed with a hard-wearing fabric and a raft of technical features to create a robust, protective jacket. The three-layer softshell fabric offers good mechanical stretch for a fit that is comfortable on and off the bike, and when worn on top of a couple of other layers. The high performance membrane and backing fabric are bolstered by fully sealed seams for complete protection in the rain. If you’re caught in an intense downpour, the elasticated hem and integrated drawcord hood can be adjusted to provide additional protection.
The hood is adjusted using a fully bonded, low profile Cohaesive cord lock and stows away neatly beneath the hi-vis hood retention strap. A full length, two-way zip allows the jacket to be opened from the waist and, combined with laser cut ventilation under the arms, prevents overheating. In a nod to the jacket’s predecessor, the zip is bordered on one side by a signature Pro Team placket and lower down by two sleek and secure zipped pockets. A new and improved hi-vis pink drop tail provides added protection against road spray but folds away neatly into the hem. In conjunction with the reflective and hi-vis detailing on the seamless signal cuffs, the drop tail also transforms the jacket into a highly reflective piece for riding in low light conditions.
“…what really stands out is the performance of this almost exclusively urban-orientated jacked. Rain beads off with ease, and after a good six weeks of changeable weather its performance hasn't diminished. The taped seams inside are high quality, while the fabric can shift excess body heat really well – better than a lot of technical hardshell-type jackets I've tried over the past few years.”
