When it gets cold and rainy during the chillier seasons, picking the right gear for a ride can be tricky. You could wear that heavy-duty, waterproof jacket, but it's not cold enough to need all that insulation. You clearly can't just throw on a long-sleeve jersey unless you want to be miserable. Our solution? A high-tech rain-ready jacket like the Mavic HC H2O Jacket that will protect you from the wetter elements without roasting you.
The HC H2O jacket differentiates itself from those miserable rain jackets of yore that were little more than zip-up garbage bags. While those left you with that sweaty, damp feeling underneath, the HC H2O jacket breathes exceptionally well without giving up any of its promised protective capabilities. A fabric called Cocona Xcelerator is employed, a 20,000mm waterproof fabric that is fully seam-sealed and antimicrobial, yet is also remarkably breathable, thanks to is ingenious engineering as well as the Clima Vents zippered ports that are incorporated into the sleeves' forearms. A zippered chest pocket is the sole storage option, since you're likely to want to keep your goods dry in a jersey pocket underneath. In the event that you're caught out after dark, the jacket has reflective elements to ensure you stay visible.
The Mavic HC H2O Jacket comes in six sizes, from X-Small to XX-Large, and in four color schemes: Black/black, Bright Red/white, Black/folio, and Red/white.
