Ahead of the curve is behind it
Fashion can be a fickle, ever-changing thing. One day, your patched-up, oil-stained denim jacket turns heads from the ladies, and the next day, it's eliciting laughter. That's why we're all seeing a resurgence in straightforward, no nonsense designs like the Chrome Ike Windshirt. From a better age where campaign commercials said 'I like Ike, you like Ike,' the Windshirt has been made as timeless in its appearance as it has in its specificity to the bike.
Chrome knows that you can ride in any jacket, but 'any jacket' can be torturous when you're in the saddle. That's why the Ike Windshirt is made from a wool-like, brushed polyester. The sleeves and rear hem were lengthened a bit to keep you covered when you're stretched out in the saddle. The rear of the jacket also has a pass-through cargo pocket that makes grabbing your phone or keys a cinch while you're on the move.
For the wind protection functionality of the Ike Windshirt, Chrome went all out to keep you cold off of your skin. First off, the jacket's twill material naturally deflects wind, but to cover all of the bases, Chrome also placed wind-resistant, hidden nylon panels at the front of the Ike. And while this keeps cold air from getting in, Chrome also took steps to ensure that hot air can get out. Not only does the jacket have a two-way zipper for ventilation, but there are also dual armpit zips to keep the air flowing through. To further prevent win infiltration, the cuffs are zippered and the collar snap-buttons down.
Chrome has also added reflective accents throughout the jacket to increase your visibility in low-light conditions. The Chrome Ike Windshirt is available in four sizes from Small to X-Large and in the color Military Green.
