The TRAIL Spring/Fall Hooded Jacket checks all the right boxes, complete with light insulation, breathable materials, a trail-focused fit, and protective features throughout. We wanted something that would pair well with our SS and LS TRAIL Jerseys for those cool spring and fall conditions, where the temperature often fluctuates day to day. Knowing the front half of our bodies, shoulders, and head take the brunt of the elements, we targeted these areas using an all-new ultrasoft, flexible material called RX TECH Melange. This beautiful blended fabric is brushed on the interior to add a light insulation barrier, which is especially welcome on those long, flowy descents from high elevations. The tall collar on the scuba-style hood works as a built-in neck protector when zipped to the top, and it's worth noting the hood itself is not helmet compatible. We did this to keep your head warm pre- and post-ride, while during the ride itself the neck protection is sufficient, without the chance of overheating. The back panel of the jacket is the same proven circular-knit Triangle textile used on our TRAIL jerseys, which is a light, flexible material that breathes exceptionally well and pulls moisture away from the layers below. We built the sleeves with our workhorse RX fabric-which is lightly brushed on the inside for a touch of extra insulation-and covered the elbows in our abrasion-resistant dyneRope. Cut in our trailFit, the jacket is trim and fitted for the trail bike, but still flexes into casual duty without skipping a beat. The double-slider zipper means you're able to open the jacket cape-style for the grind to summit, or ventilate the traditional way from the top. We also added a single stash pocket inside for small items, which has a built-in"lid" to keep keys and other valuables secure.
