So the weatherman was wrong. Get out and ride.

Even the heartiest of cyclists, those riders who never appear phased by a stormy forecast, like to stay dry. Owning the Showers Pass Men's Refuge Jacket means any excuse you make for staying indoors seems, well, wimpy.

The Elite 3-layer fabric used to construct the jacket is highly waterproof, and Elite's breathability means moisture is less likely to build inside as you work up a sweat. Two chest zips provide additional ventilation to help regulate core temperature as the weather changes. Fully taped seams add to its ability to withstand a downpour, as do the sealed AquaGuard Vislon zippers.

The Refuge jacket features adjustable cuffs, which are perfect for heavier cold weather gloves. A removable hood as well as a drop-down tail make this jacket not only ideal for cycling, but also versatile enough to be a shell for skiing or backpacking. A relaxed fit means layers are easily added, making this a great 3-season option.

A zippered chest pocket, full rear pocket, zippered rear media pocket, and light loop add to the already stellar features of this jacket.

The Showers Pass Men's Refuge Jacket is available in sizes Small to X-Large and in the colors Cayenne and Graphite.

Fit was an issue

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: small

I received it as a gift from my wife. She wanted to get me a burly commuting jacket as I ride to work all year long. (Coldest commute this year was 7°F) She got me a small based on my chest measurements. It fit okay with just a baselayer on underneath. The armpit openings were tight. I definitely would not be able to wear it with any insulation that would allow me to ride in the teens or single digits. At least that is my experience with this jacket. Maybe I size up would be better?

does the hood fit over a helmet?

Hey Christine - The hood on this Showers Pass jacket will fit over your basic bike helmet. What type of helmet do you have? Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.

The Bad Weather Cycling Jacket You Need!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Over the years I've used many different cycling specific rain/bad weather jackets from Castelli, Pearl Izumi, Gore Bike, and so forth. The Showers Pass Refuge destroys them all. First off the fit is true to size. If you're looking for Euro fit size down, otherwise check the measurement chart and order to your size. The fit is perfect for me (wide shoulders) and is not baggy and loose. The Refuge also sheds water like a duck. I've been out riding during storms where it rained 2-3 inches and it kept me warm and dry from the rain (some sweat...I'm a heavy sweater...and it has nice zippered front vents covered in mesh). The drop tail is a nice touch and can be snapped up when you don't want to use it. If you want a jacket that can take a weather beating check out the Showers Pass Refuge Jacket.

The video shows the type of wet 2-3 hour rides I've been using the jacket in.

Great jacket (and so are the pants)!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

I am up here in Western NY on the banks of Lake Ontario and wanted an outer layer so I could train and commute in rough weather. Went out in 28 degrees this morning to do 25 miles. Wore one layer less than usual and was comfortable throughout the ride. In fact, I felt better. No wind penetration and the breathability kept me dry.
I am 6'0" and 205. I got the XL because I have a bit of a gut and the fit is exactly as I hoped. (My Gore jacket in XL is VERY snug around my middle.)
I can't wait until it rains so I can try the water-proofing!

Does the Refuge Jacket come with the hood included?

Yes. It zips off in case you don't want to wear it.

I got a new fat bike and plan to ride through the Northern Minnesota winter... many days below zero. I am looking for a good jacket to battle all elements from fall through the spring. Bonus would be the functionality for the occaisional cross over to some downhill skiing. Would this jacket be a good fit?

I just used it at 28 degrees wearing a silk base layer, a polypropylene mid layer and a thin turtleneck on a bike. SO I would say Definitely.

How reflective is this jacket? Are the name on the front and on the tail the only reflective parts? Or is there more reflective tape/lines elsewhere? Also, is this appropriate for summer rain? Or is it too heavy/warm for a Southern storm?

There are some small reflective tabs as well as piping on the front, back, and sides.

Tested the jacket in every condition possible up Emigration Canyon back in December. This jacket is incredible.

Bomb Proof

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is the jacket you wear when it's nastier than nasty, but you've still got to ride. You will not find a more waterproof, windproof, nastyproof jacket than this one.

There seems to be no amount of rain or wind that will penetrate this sturdy 3 layer construction. A removable hood and a drop down tail offer vital versatility and function for wet weather riding. Along with the absolute shear brute, weather-stopping function, a lineup of functionality awaits with myriad pockets, and adjust-ability. The type of pockets that are easy to use on the fly, as you change your layering system to match the changing conditions. There's also plenty of ventilation and fabric breath-ability, when your body temperature builds up an inner storm. This jacket reminded not of cycling specific gear, but more of backcountry skiing gear from a brand like Arc'teryx. Function, function, function matched with quality construction and a sleek looking design. It is that good!

How warm is this jacket? Is it warm enough to wear with nothing else under it but your shirt on days when it's 15 degrees outside?
