Showers Pass has launched the Men’s and Women’s IMBA Jacket, the first product released in conjunction with their partnership with the International Mountain Bicycling Association. The versatile jacket is said to be a mix of protection, comfort, and mobility designed to go from trail work and singletrack riding, and then seamlessly back to everyday errands around town. Five percent of net proceeds will benefit IMBA, whose mission is to create, enhance and protect great places to ride mountain bikes.
Crafted with Artex 2.5 Double Charcoal print waterproof breathable performance fabric, fully taped seams and waterproof zippers, the IMBA Jacket aims to block wind and rain while offering comfort on or off the bike. Extra-long core vents on the front of the jacket prevent overheating and remain easily accessible while wearing a hydration pack. Reinforced shoulder patches protect the jacket from backpack wear and tear, while reflective trim provides visibility to motorists at night off the trail.
The removable adjustable hood is large enough to cover your helmet but stows easily inside one of two interior jacket pockets during improved weather. With two front hand-warmer pockets as well as inside chest pockets complete with audio port, there is plenty of storage space. With a weight of 15oz (men’s size medium) it is 21% lighter than the popular Refuge Jacket but with many of the same features.
Price is $199. Men’s sizes are S-XXL in Night Ride or Green. Women’s sizes are XS-XXL in Mandarin and Night Ride. Learn more at www.showerspass.com.
