Rain jackets often get written off as strictly functional garments, stripped off as soon as the sun comes out and stashed away until needed again. Giro figures, why Why can't a light, stylish cycling jacket also be rain ready, and thus meet almost all of your needs while still being something you wouldn't mind being seen in Well, meet the Giro Women's Neo Rain Jacket, the company's answer to its own question. To make the Neo Rain Jacket, Giro needed to solve one key problem first: the sweaty, clammy feeling that so many rain jackets create, courtesy of the fact that they're often little more than garbage bags with zippers. Searching the hills for a material that could be element proof, stretchable, and breathable, Giro chose Polartec's remarkable Neoshell fabric. It does all these things with the feeling of a softshell and is remarkably durable, too. The jacket's styling is sophisticated, cut and fit with a paneling array that functions optimally on the bike, but doesn't at all look out of place off of it, either, making it a great cool weather piece. There's additional function found in the creative Stowback rear pocket system, too, allowing easy, sealable access to your essentials. The Giro Women's Neo Shell Rain Jacket has a full length front zipper and is available in five sizes, from X Small to X Large, and in two colors: Wild Lime and Jet Black.
