These jackets are for those wanting to go out in more extreme conditions, whatever the weather or the time of day.

We use the same windtex outer material as our award winning aqua repel v2 jackets, but with an additional fleecy lining on the inside to keep you warmer as the temperature drops.
The v2 jackets feature a new Windtex membrane made from polyurethane (PU) which is more elastic and breathable over traditional plastics and inherently more eco friendly. PU also doesn’t interfere with the bodies endocrine and hormonal systems, nor does it contribute to PH changes in soil or water. Windtex offers maximum warmth and freedom of movement with minimal bulk.
Keeping rider safety in mind, there are numerous reflective elements to this design. On the left chest area and upper back we have placed a reflective band, there is reflective piping around the tail flap and cargo pockets, as well as a large reflective logo. The main visible element however is our Pixel panel on the back. This fabric is highly effective at picking up and reflecting light from car headlights, making them ideal for commuting.
Up North, we know what bad weather feels like so we have used premium Italian fabrics designed to cope with the harsh UK winter. We use 70% Windtex, 25% Pixel & 5 % DWR treated Roubaix fabric in its construction. Windtex offers maximum warmth and freedom of movement with minimal bulk, where as the 2 small DWR panels under the armpits offer refined breathability. The Pixel panel is fleece lined, It’s also highly breathable but not water repellant . We placed it on the back as riders tend to lose more heat and sweat from this area. Also, the majority of wind and rain hits from the front so repellency isn’t a major issue.
Due to the higher percentage of windtex used on the orange version we rate that jacket slightly warmer than this black version.
