With winter approaching and the wet weather continuing, here’s a low bulk, low weight, highly waterproof and fully breathable rain jacket : a true cycling essential from Endura
Livingston, Scotland, September 2012 – It is this time of the year again: whatever you’re going to wear for your ride, the weather is most likely to change as soon as you’re far enough away from your house to not bother about turning around anymore.
Every cyclist has a tale to tell about his or her worst bad weather experience, riding in the wind, rain and mud, with water creeping in through the seams, the wind ripping through the delicate layers and your core temperature plummeting down, leaving you cold and miserable. That’s why it is always worthwhile to carry a lightweight, packable, yet seam-sealed and fully waterproof jacket like the Endura Photon Jacket with you, as an insurance against foul weather.
One of the challenges of making a waterproof cycling jacket is to combine high waterproof properties with low bulk and low weight. With the new Photon Jacket, Endura has mastered this challenge in style. This member in Endura’s exclusive family of cycling jackets is extremely lightweight and ultra packable for a fully waterproof, completely seam-sealed jacket. The Photon Jacket keeps you perfectly dry on wet days, yet it fits into a jersey pocket, so it’s also ideal for taking it along when the weather conditions are changeable and unpredictable.
It is made of ultra compact 2.5-layer waterproof breathable fabric (waterproof: 10,000mm, breathable: 10,000g). For ultimate weather protection, the Photon features a slimline inner storm flap with a wrap over zip guard. Elasticated cuffs, hem and neckline ensure a perfect fit. Further details include reflective print trims on shoulders and sleeves, a rear pocket with structured bonded opening, and a mini stuff sack.
The jacket comes in a relaxed fit, so you can easily wear it over several layers in winter. The Men’s Photon Jacket is available in black, red, and high-viz in sizes S-XXL. The Women-specific version comes in mint green, black, and high-viz in sizes XS-L. RRP: £69.99
