Give and Get.
If your trails can tolerate riding with some moisture on the ground, grab this feature-loaded lightweight, yet durable waterproof-breathable hardshell and hit the trails in complete comfort. The Women's IMBA Jacket from Showers Pass is a women's specific cut and designed for mountain biking. The company is giving 5% of net proceeds of this jacket to support the International Mountain Bicycling Association. Their mission is to create, enhance, and protect great places to ride mountain bikes for the whole family.
The Women's IMBA Jacket offers a unique combination of lightweight 2.5-layer Artex hardshell that is a waterproof, yet breathable performance fabric keeping you dry but still offers excellent ventilation. The seams are fully taped preventing any water intrusion. Showers Pass didn't forget any details and the shoulders are reinforced protecting the fabric from hydration pack straps. A soft, moisture-wicking lining at the collar adds some cozy luxury to the jacket and keeps spirits high even if you are in for an all-day rain fest. Front hand warmer pockets give you a place to stash your mitts if you have to seek coverage from the elements. An inside chest pocket with audio port is available for playing your rainy-day playlist or if you are checking the weather report. The extra-long core zips easily and effectively exhaust heat build-up and pull tabs on all the zips help with grip in wet environments. 360 degrees of 3M Scotchlite reflective material trim and a light loop at the collar help with maximum visibility once you are off the trails and back in civilization. We really enjoyed the adjustable and removable hood that fits over a helmet if it is really coming down but can be stowed in an inside pocket when not needed. Keeping the waist from riding up and any trail spray from entering the jacket is the double toggle hem.
