Too often, you don‚Äôt pack the rain jacket. Even if the forecast is dire, there‚Äôs tendency to grab too light a layer and leave behind real weather protection in favor of packability. That‚Äôs where the new Ultralight Rain Jacket comes in.
Introducing the lightest, best fitting, most breathable, most packable, most protective, most versatile jacket we‚Äôve ever made. Yes, jacket - not just rain jacket. (So pack it this time.)
When we decided to start with a clean sheet of paper to design a new rain shell, we had a long list of requirements and bests that we needed to address. The main one being that it couldn‚Äôt be just a rain jacket.
With an entirely new pattern, it incorporates 3D shaping, articulated sleeves, shoulder and back to fit flawlessly on the bike, yet still allow for a range of layers beneath. Every detail was reconsidered and reengineered to minimize bulk, maximize on-bike function and keep with our ultra-clean aesthetic. This is a jacket that you can reach for when it isn‚Äôt raining. A jacket that does threatening skies and foggy days, windy starts and mountain descents.
The basis for this all-season protective wonder is ultralight eVent fabric, with its Direct Vent membrane that doesn‚Äôt require heat & moisture build up inside for it to start working (unlike almost every other membrane on the market), critical for comfort, over the long haul.
To eVent‚Äôs 30K breathability, 10K waterproof rating and 0.2cfm air permeability, we added fully taped seams, internal bonded zip pocket with media port, low profile elastic cuffs, microfleece-lined collar, caped back vent that doubles as access to jersey pockets, extended rear hem, and reflective detailing throughout and you have a jacket capable of living in your jersey pocket for anytime ‚Äújacket weather‚Äù arises.

How do your jackets fit? Our jackets are patterned in the riding position, with a tight fit across the chest and arms with a more forward position. This is intentional to reduce flapping and extra fabric across the chest while riding. When standing, the jacket will feel tight across the chest, shoulders and torso. The arm length might appear long as well. However, the intended fit is tailored for on-the-bike positioning where the shoulders and torso no longer feel tight and the extra arm length hits the wrists in the appropriate spot. Constructed without extra fabric to flap around - it should fit tight over your jersey (with enough room for a long sleeve and base layer), but shouldn‚Äôt appear baggy. We select fabrics that have some elasticity to allow for freedom of movement even with a tailored fit to accommodate some range of fit within each size.
