The Storm Racer Jacket offers dependable weather protection in a simple shell built of ultralightweight, 3-layer 100% nylon ripstop with an airy tricot backer.
Despite a sub-hour summit of Mount Superior, Mother Nature might catch up to you on the descent. Keep their lightest waterproof shell on hand so you can stay dry on the run or ride back down. The featherweight H2No™ Performance Standard 100% nylon ripstop keeps you dry, while a tricot backer wears soft and comfortable next to your skin. Zippered chest pocket converts to stuffsack with a reinforced carabiner clip-in loop, and the hood adjusts in one pull for ease of use and good peripheral vision. Super low-profile half-elastic cuffs lay flat against top of wrist for low bulk and superior comfort, elastic at back hem allows jacket to lie flat against body while sealing out wet weather. This is their lightest waterproof shell—period.
