The Versa goes for a ride.
Formerly offered only in a cut designed for runners, the Sugoi Versa Jacket for Women has made the transition to the bike. It has been a staple for the ambulatory for some time, but now Sugoi has updated the functional performance that so many of us have come to rely on with a bike-specific fit that better accommodates your position in the saddle.
The Versa is made from Sugoi's Argon fabric, a tear-resistant shield against external water that still manages to evacuate moisture from the inside. It'll keep you comfortable in rainy, cool conditions; however, in the even that it does overheat or the temperature doesn't call for full coverage, the Versa can be converted to a vest courtesy of its magnetically attached sleeves. It also has a rear, zippered pocket for storing the sleeves, so you can pull them off mid-ride as the conditions change or after you warm up. Reflective elements help keep you visible in low-light conditions.
The Versa Bike Jacket - Women's is available in five sizes ranging from X-Small to X-Large in the colors Super Pink and True Blue.

magnets very creative
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
Magnets instead of zippers are used for the sleeves. The entire piece (sleeves with shoulders) comes off very easily. True to size. Bought the ice blue. It's more of an aqua then blue. Love the jacket. No pockets but easy access to the zippered pocket on the back.
Couldn't have found better!
The magnets hold together the sleeves so they don't pop off. This jacket allows for the wind to flow through the jacket nicely. It has a lot of pockets, double in the back, one on each side. A pocket in the top on the front. The only con is the zipper does sometimes separate, but it can be fixed if I unzip and then zip it back up perfectly. The price cannot be beat for the quality. I've purchased 3 jackets since this one, all more money, and this jacket tops them.
Great jacket, magnets are cool
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: XL
I wear this jacket for both running and biking. The pockets are weird because they are in the back of the jacket (better for the cyclists)
I like it because temperatures vary a lot where I live. I fit for my chest area because that is always my issue in finding a fit, and it fits great. I haven't had it in the rain yet.
Is this jacket waterproof or just water resistant?
This is in the category of "might rain" jacket. The fabric is water repellent, which I guess is a weasel word that means "not quite resistant"
