The Assos iJ. Intermediates7 Women's Jacket is a relatively simple concept employed with very un simple fabrics to make for one of the most advanced cycling pieces you may ever wear. The Intermediates7 Jacket is light enough that it could be called a long sleeve jersey, but we think that's one of its greatest strengths. The jacket is comprised of no fewer than six different fabrics, applied to 14 different elements, combining into one of the best fits, and with the best performance, you may ever feel. Without getting too technical, we'll lay out the basics: the Intermediates7 begins life as a summer weight jersey, before having sleeves added and then getting a treatment of a light, windproof fabric called stratagonUltra airBlock over the main body's front panels. This material is extremely element resistant yet is also incredibly flexible, meaning you get the core protection of a softshell jacket or vest without the noisy, stiff, plastic bag feeling that they often bring. The rear panels are made out of Assos' Type. vX121, a highly breathable material to evacuate accumulated moisture within, without compromising your warmth. The full length front zipper gets a protective panel toward the top to prevent neck irritation, and a zippered pocket on the garment's back is perfectly sized for a wallet, smartphone, or both. The Assos iJ. Intermediates7 Jacket Women's comes in five sizes, from X Small to X Large, and in three color schemes: Black Volkanga, Red Swiss, and White Panther.
