Racers have to ride in pretty much any conditions, but can't afford to have heavy, bulky, or poorly designed gear slowing them down. POC's Raceday Stretch Light Rain Jacket is designed specifically for competition, with a slim fit, mechanical stretch, and excellent moisture-management characteristics to keep you comfortable when times matter.

It all starts with the three-layer waterproof and breathable membrane, which is rated 20,000 millimeter waterproof. What this actually means is excessively complicated, but a 20K rating is the benchmark for kit that's designed to keep you dry in a downpour, so you can rest assured that the Raceday Stretch won't let the water in. Its seams are also fully taped to seal up the microscopic joints where moisture might seep through, and a hook-and-loop storm flap helps prevent moisture from coming in at the zipper.

The Raceday Stretch is made from 100% nylon and cut with POC's race fit, which is trim, aerodynamic, and highly efficient. A dropped back hem provides extra coverage even when you're in the drops, and mechanical stretch gives you enough flexibility to move comfortably in the saddle. Lycra inner cuffs prevent water from blowing up your sleeves, while a soft collar lining prevents chin chafe. Reflective back and sleeve logos help keep you visible in the misty to rainy conditions where you'll appreciate the above features. And even with all of this, the Raceday weighs just 200 grams and is compressible enough that you can easily stash it in a jersey pocket if the sun pops out from behind the clouds.

First class heavy-rain jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

In a crowded field, this is a no-compromise coat that stands out for a few good reasons. First, it is really well constructed, with two layers, waterproof seams, and a lightweight overall build that you won't mind packing along. There are no pockets or headphone channels, but those are a terrible idea on a raincoat. There are no vents, which would be a problem if you like to ride in the rain in Alabama in July, but at the top of mountain passes it would be a nice way to get a little warmth, especially on descents.



Second, it has long sleeves with an elastic band that extends past the wrist over the hand. (See photo.) Note that I'm 6'5" with a 37" sleeve and that's a "large." Don't be intimidated, though, you want the sleeves to run long, and way too many manufacturers get that horribly wrong. You can easily get your gloves over that elastic and seal those sleeves up nice and tight. It's tight fit, however; you're not going to take this off while you're moving. The sleeve design alone puts this coat well beyond high-end competitors I have seen from Rapha and Aether.

Third, they managed to put together a serious 2-ply coat and yet it's still thin and light. I got mine down to the size of a Coke can, easily tolerable in the jersey pocket for what it does. Determined squishing would almost certainly fit it in a Ziploc sandwich baggie.
