Beacon - Men's Lightweight Waterproof Cycle Jacket

Want to stand out? The Beacon is not only bright orange, it has reflective black Silversky logos to shine bright at night, while being seam sealed to fully protect againist any down pour. This incredibly well designed jacket offers great waterproof protection, and is easily rolled up and stuffed in the back pocket in case of a weather emergency! The Beacon does away with the bulk of other jackets, giving you the features you need without the unnecessary bulky cost.

For the scientists or the technical minded that's 10,000mm H20 waterproof protection. The fabric is DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coated so water beads off the surface, and to ensure it doesn't make it's way through the seams we sealed those too. As the water doesn’t soak into the jacket (i.e no 2.5/3 layers here!) there is no chilling effect, making this a great windproof layer even in wet weather. To ensure the jacket is fully waterproof the front has a full length waterproof zip, while the back has a zipped flap to ensure your belongings remain safe and dry in the rear pocket. The jacket is designed to be worn over existing layers so is looser fitting, with room under the arms to allow for no tightness when worn with a backpack.

Seeing we’ve gone all technical, did you know as dusk sets in and lighting gets dim that orange-red is the most visible colour to the human eye? and that's why road cones are not yellow.

Material: Durable Water Repellent
To test your jacket’s DWR, sprinkle on some water. If the water beads up, your DWR is working as it should.  If the water soaks in and obvious darker areas appear, it is time to restore your DWR. Be sure to test your jacket all over, as soaking can occur from any breach. Restoring your factory applied DWR is easy, simply wash and apply heat as below.
  • Line dry your garment or tumble dry it on a warm, gentle cycle.
  • Once it is dry, tumble dry your garment for 20 minutes on low to medium heat to reactivate the durable water-repellent (DWR) treatment on the outer fabric.
  • If unable to tumble dry, iron the dry garment on the gentle setting (warm, no steam) by placing a towel or cloth between the garment and the iron.
  • This will help reactivate the DWR treatment on your garment’s outer fabric.
These steps will restore the factory durable water repellent treatment and water may bead up on your outerwear.  If it does not, it’s probably time to apply new DWR to your jacket.

Silversky suggest using Nikwax TX.Direct® Wash-In will help restore the waterproof/breathable performance
