Through partnership with Polartec®, Louis Garneau has created a completely waterproof jacket that acts as a hardshell yet has the ventilation, stretchability, and softness properties of a softshell. With completely waterproof features such as a full length reversed waterproof zip lined with an inner flap, sealed seams, velcro-adjustable wrists and a silicone gripper, this jacket is reliable in the wettest of conditions. The collar is crafted in a soft 2.5 ply fabric with a polyurethane membrane so it remains waterproof while maintaining comfort against the skin. When fully zipped, the zipper is housed in a garage to eliminate neck irritation. Multiple storage options are also weather-proofed, including a chest pocket and back pocket which are both finished with waterproof zips. And of course, no cycling gear designed for the off-season and fewer daylight hours is complete without front and back reflective accents that enhance visibility.
