Based in Portland, Ore., the folks at Showers Pass know a thing or two about dealing with the rain. As avid cyclists themselves, SP's employees are utterly dedicated to making the best wet weather cycling gear on the planet, so when they release a piece like the Showers Pass Women's Transit Jacket, you know it's met their own standards for excellence. Combining top notch fabrics with innovative and functional design elements, the Transit Jacket is optimized for commuting but is equally functional any time it's raining and you're riding. It's constructed from a 3 layer laminate that combines an inner, wicking fabric, a wind and water blocking membrane, and a durable, ripstop outer. This offers ample breathability, perspiration wicking, and weather resistance for an enjoyable ride. To seal out the elements, the Transit Jacket is fully seam taped and features a cinch cord at hem. It is hood compatible, but does not come with one. Using hook and loop fasteners, the Showers Pass Rain Hood is designed to be a perfect match to the Transit Jacket and will fit under a helmet. For added versatility and comfort, the jacket features large vents under the arms and across the back to tune airflow. Showers Pass intended the Transit for commuting in bad weather, so its fit is generous to cover street clothes. Because of this, it runs large, so size down if you fall between, or intended to use the jacket with cycling specific tops. 360 degrees of 3M reflective trim and a light loop on back enhance safety when visibility is low. For storage, there's a chest pocket with media port, and two front pockets. The Showers pass Transit comes in the colors Yelling Yellow and Ocean Blue, and in four sizes from Small through X Large.
