This is an outer shell jacket and is designed to be wind and water resistant
The jacket does not have any insulation, impact or abrasion resistance
This jacket is made from a 3-layer laminated fabric, which means it does not need any lining to be waterproof. It appears as if it is a single layer of waterproof material.
The jacket weighs 410g and packs down into its own chest pocket which is 150mm x 150mm x 100mm
Our lightest, most packable waterproof jacket.
You’d think it would be relatively straightforward making such a focussed jacket, and it is… if you have the right fabric…
The problem was that nobody made the fabric that we needed, so we made our own.
It needed to be light, tough, superbly waterproof, breathable and totally windproof.
Enter ASTex. Designed and made by us with no compromise, for nothing other than lightweight adventure motorcycling.
A 210D super strong nylon 6-6 face material in a ripstop configuration with a PU breathable/waterproof lining that is 100% windproof and will withstand a hydrostatic head of 30m (30000mm).
Unlike some fabrics which use a porous membrane technology (that lets air through) not only is our PU membrane totally windproof, which means we can use a single layer over the entire jacket to reduce weight, but it doesn’t rely on your body warmth to drive the damp from the inside of the jacket to the outside. So, even if you get wet AND cold with the jacket on (hard sweaty technical singletrack followed by a long cold road section anyone?) our fabric will keep driving that moisture outwards to get you warm and dry as soon as possible.
It took us two years to develop this fabric, but once it was ready the design of the jacket came quickly. Long sleeves to support your forward reach to the bars, a great fit and a single throttle friendly chest pocket that the jacket packs down into. It’s very much part of the family of Adventure Spec waterproof jackets.
At a mere 410g this lightweight waterproof shell may be diminutive, but it packs a big punch for its weight and has already had many hours of testing in some of Northern Europes worst winter conditions.
