Elite 2.1 Jacket
Expanding on the ever-popular Women's Elite 2.0 Jacket, the updated Elite 2.1 continues to provide shelter to wet-climate cyclists. What differentiates the new from the old is a redesigned cut which offers a balance of ergonomics that's equally at home touring, training, or commuting.
The Elite 2.1 Jacket's new semi-form fit offers the ability to fit over bulkier street clothes, yet it's still low profile enough that it won't flap like a plastic bag when worn over cycling-specific jerseys or baselayers. It's made from a durable nylon shell that uses an eVent membrane for full waterproof protection with unmatched breathability.
The three-layer eVent fabric allows sweat vapor to easily escape to the outside of the fabric, where it's quickly evaporated. This excellent breathability is further enhanced with the addition of underarm zip vents, weather tight cuffs that sport hook-and-loop tabs so they can open wide to let air flow in, and a mesh-lined large back panel for flow-thru ventilation.
While the two-way front zipper also allows you to tune air flow, it's waterproof so you won't experience cold drafts. Adding to the Elite 2.1's weather resistance, are fully taped seams and a collar that features hook-and-loop attachments for compatibility with the available separately Showers Pass Rain Hood. The droptail hem ensures coverage in the riding position, and cinch cords at collar and hem seal in warmth.
Showers Pass provides the Elite 2.1 with a chest pocket that features an internal headphone port. And, like the angled, easy-to-access, back storage pocket, it uses a water-resistant zipper. Showers Pass has never been shy when safety comes in to play. You'll find plentiful 3M Reflective taping on the arms, back, and sides, as well as a loop on the back for wearing a safety light.
The Women's Elite 2.1 Rain Jacket comes in sizes Small through X-Large and is available in Ocean Blue and Electric Rose.
