You can never be too flashy while biking around town. No, we don't mean flashy like, say, going commando in a kiltAAAthe Endura Men's Luminite Cycling Jacket lights up so motorists and other bikers canAAAt miss you. Endura bonded an LED fiber-optic strip into the Luminite's drop tail; the light strip gives you 50 hours of flash time before you need to change the battery. Plus, reflective hits all over the jacket light up to make you easy to see at night, before dawn, and under gray skies. Speaking of gray skies, this jacket's waterproof material works better than a trench coat to prevent you from getting soggy during your commute to work or your ride home from the trailhead.
Versatility, they name is the Gore Bike Wear Men?s ALP-X Zip-Off Jacket. Warm and water- and wind-resistant for cold, wet days, breathable enough for high-intensity rides, and with zip-off sleeves for when it warms up. ... Yep, that just about covers the bases. The jacket's WindStopper Active Shell efficiently combines a shell?s ability to block cold, penetrating wind with the softness and breathability of a fleece, and raglan long sleeves convert the Alp-X into a vest for core protection in changeable weather.
A new spin on an old classic. Castelli designed a classic transparent rain cape, then took it way farther. The Men's Sottile Jacket isn't just the plastic bag that you're used to seeing on racers. Castelli used a Transparent Compact waterproof membrane to make the Sottile breathable and to add stretch. Then this rain jacket got mesh side panels, a zippered side pocket, and two reflective tabs at the rear.
Start your ride in the pre-dawn chill wearing the Louis Garneau Men222s Electra 2 Jacket; once the sun comes up and the air warms up, zip off the sleeves to convert the jacket into a vest. The Electra 2222s lightweight, breathable fabric is DWR-treated to shed the occasional rain, and a back yoke vent prevents overheating late in your ride. The two-way zipper is backed by a full-length flap and a chin guard to prevent chafing. An adjustable elastic drawcord hem helps keep the jacket in place, and reflective tabs on the front and back make you visible to passing motorists in low-light conditions. Handy zip pockets on the chest and back stow the jacket's sleeves or cash for refreshments on the way home.
