Storm - Men's Waterproof Cycle Jacket

Storm - Men's Waterproof Cycle Jacket - 3 Layer Construction

As the name implies, our heavy hitting rain jacket is made to get you through the storm warm, safe and dry. This incredibly well designed jacket offers great waterproof protection while remaining highly breathability and flexible, and that's no mean feat. The Storm does away with the bulk and brand premium of other jackets, giving you the features you need without the unnecessary bulky cost. We don't do loose flappy jackets, ours has 12% spandex to stretch with you rather than create huge wind resistance (we want the effort to go into the pedals!). We tested this jacket for over a year in all sorts of conditions before we went into production.

For the scientists or the technical minded that's 10,000mm H20 waterproof protection and 10,000 GR 24Hrs in breathability. The 3 layer fabric gives you exactly the protection you need. The first layer is a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) top coat so water beads off the surface. Then there’s the all-important waterproof middle layer, and finally an inner coating to protect the waterproof middle layer from wear and to stop the pores in the waterproof layer getting clogged and to remain breathable. The inner layer also allows the middle waterproof layer to be lighter in weight, reducing the jackets bulk relative to other jackets. To compliment all this we fully seam sealed all the fabirc joins and added full length YKK waterproof zips, while the back storage pocket is fully waterproof to ensure your belongings remain safe and dry. Don’t be fooled by the black logos and reflective marks on the back, they glow like possum eyes at night. Rounding off the package we added a drop-tail to ensure your toosh remains protected from road water spray.

No hood? No, we've ridden stage races for years and from our experience the hood just gets in the way, it's bulky, fills with water and rubs against your helmet.

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
