Description

Better than stuffing newspapers down your jersey.

Racing in the rain is a fact of life you'll eventually experience, if you haven't already. And when it happens, you'll want a jacket that is highly compressible so you can have it stowed in a back pocket within easy reach. The Garneau Climate Grid 2 Jacket is perfect for a back pocket, and it's transparent so that your team kit will remain visible when you're wearing it.

In comparison to the original clear racing jackets, this one is far more user friendly. Clear PVC plastic once was the material of choice, and it breathed about as well as a thick trash bag draped over your skin. In comparison, the Climate 2 Grid Jacket breathes quite well. It is made of Garneau's Climate Grid fabric, a light polyester mesh laminated to a waterproof/breathable polyurethane membrane. The mesh is on the inside and acts to wick sweat away from the skin and disperse it across the membrane, speeding moisture transfer.

The Garneau Climate Grid 2 Jacket has a full length front zipper and two pockets in back. It is Clear and comes in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large.

  • Two back pockets to carry necessities
  • Anatomical fit for comfort in the drops
  • Mini-light rubber tab for easy light attachment
  • Front and back reflective logos for safe riding in low light
  • Collar, wrist, and hem feature stretch fabric trim for a sleek, comfortable fit
  • Front two-way zip with inner flap and chin guard for protection from the elements

Great jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

LG stuff is underrated IMHO. Fits well, size appropriate to what you usually wear. The zipper is nice and big making it easy to deal with while wearing gloves; It has reasonable ventilation for a rain jacket. I agree with Evan Hyde's review and use it in a similar fashion. Throw it on over a LS jersey with base layer and you can get well below freezing. Most importantly, it keeps the rain off. The pocket is helpful. I bought it and a Castelli rain jacket at the same time to compare and returned the Castelli. I would buy this jacket again.

You get what you pay for

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

No jacket fabric really breathes as much as having a vent and that is what makes this jacket nice. The mesh side vents under the arms regulate temp and the wide collar also allows for heat to get out. The downside is that the seams are not taped and once water gets in it migrates quickly with the lining. I tried waterproofing some of the top seams and arms to improve the waterproofness and that helps but unless you seal every seem water will eventually get in.

In 20mins of heavy rain I already had plenty of water coming in through the seams even with them sealed.

Never would pay full price, but for $40 it is a decent jacket and fits well. Could use a longer tail though...

Excellent do-it-all

This jacket is way more than a raincoat! On cold mornings when I know it will warm up, I start with this jacket instead of a vest and arm warmers. It packs away much more easily than those items when the temps rise, and if I have a lot of changing conditions (long climbs or descents, large changes in altitude, or variable weather) it is a lot easier to manage than vest and arm warmers.

In Tucson in the winter, this is the perfect thing to pack to the top of Mt. Lemmon! If it's 70 in Tucson it might be 45 up top, and this takes minimal room in my jersey but keeps me warm at the top and for the descent.

Best Rain Jacket

His rain jacket is hands down the best one out there! Rolls up very small so you can throw it in your pocket if there is a small chance of rain. Much higher quality jacket than any of the other cheap ones that always tear. This jacket breaths better than most rain jackets to.

Best Answer Responded on

Yes you can see your jersey. Its small, but maybe the picture attached will give you an idea of how your jersey might appear. The piece is very packable and I usually pack it into its own back pocket to carry along in case of rain. The jacket is named after the fabric, Climate Grid. Climate Grid is an extremely light 2-ply knit that protect against the elements. It has Four-way stretch and Micro-perforated polyurethane membrane on the front to allow excellent breathability and external moisture protection.
