Precipitation is precious.
We'll be the first to admit the rain isn't our favorite flavor of weather experienced at the Competitive offices here in Northern Utah, seeing we'd rather be pedaling our bikes up winding canyon roads in the Wasatch Range. However, in the grand scheme of things rain is a seriously precious commodity, seeing it turns an otherwise parched landscape into a lush sea of greenery. So when heavy downpours threaten to leave us training indoors, we instead zip into the 3-layer protection afforded by the POC Men's AVIP Rain Jacket and head for the hills in pleasant dryness, breathable comfort, and excellent visibility.
This protective rain jacket is part of POC's AVIP collection, which aims to balance the needs of cyclists seeking greater visibility and protection while pushing themselves on the road. As such, you'll find the AVIP Rain Jacket is equipped with a lightweight 3-layer construction boasting a 10k waterproof rating for total dryness in downpours and light showers alike. This construction remains highly breathable, so you won't soak in your own perspiration while riding at a brisk cadence. And to ensure you're seen when it's especially dark and gloomy outside, numerous reflective logos pop to passing traffic. If you need even greater visibility, pick up the Zink Orange colorway, which is sure to catch the attention of passing drivers.
