When your commutes start getting a bit too grey and frosty, throw on the Showers Pass Odyssey Jacket for women to help you cope with the cold, while staying safely illuminated on your ride. You'll feel toasty thanks to three-layers of waterproof and breathable softshell material, with a soft and fleecy lining to trap heat inside against your skin. The Odyssey is sewn from MapREflect fabric, a creation of the engineers at Showers Pass, which provides highly reflective print that they claim can be seen under car headlights from 200-meters away. This reflective print features intersecting white lines from maps of cycling cities around the world on top of a black background, so you can dream of riding the streets of Amsterdam and Berlin while you make your way home from the office. Since the fabric combines 11 different maps, no two will be identical, as they will all feature different bits from each city combined together.
Soft and warm box-fleece lines the burly shell, offering you warmth when the temperatures plummet, while allowing for natural wicking and breathability so you don't overheat and end up a sweaty mess on the inside. On top you'll find an oversized hood that fits over most helmets easily, so if the temperature drops or a the clouds break and start a downpour you'll be able to keep dry and warm while you continue your commute, instead of searching for the nearest awning to hunker down underneath. The Odyssey sits just under the Atlas jacket when it comes to water protection, lacking the taped seams that the Atlas has, and it skips on some of the big vents and waterproof extras, but it does still feature the same MapREflect waterproof shell, which will keep you dry in lighter storm.
