This flyweight jacket blocks wind and shrugs off rain, the perfect balance of weather protection and packability

Tuesday, November 7, 2017 — PORTLAND, OR – Showers Pass https://www.showerspass.com – the Ultralight Wind Jacket is comfortably in its element during this time of year.  Designed for unpredictable fall weather this flyweight jacket should be in every cyclist’s back pocket no matter how long they intend on riding for.

The Elite Wind Fabric blocks wind and the PFC-free durable water repellent finish (DWR) sheds light rain while letting excess heat easily escape. Stretchy and seamless underarm side panels provide a comfortable trim fit while the 3M Scotchlite Reflective Material adds a layer of safety as daylight disappears. The Ultralight Wind Jacket weighs a scant 5.8oz and easily packs down smaller than a water bottle.

Thoughts => This is a perfect jacket for the cross seasons (late fall/winter/early spring) and cooler temperatures. With the shorter hours and chance of mildly inclement weather, it’s nice to have a windbreaker with water repellency characteristics. And best of all the jacket weighs next to nothing and packs down to a small size.
