The weather can always turn nasty in a hurry, especially in the mountains. Having the right gear on hand can make the difference between a fun ride and an agonizing march through the seventh circle of Hell. The Dakine Women's Breaker Jacket packs into its own chest pocket to make it easy to keep in your pack until you need it.
Dakine made the Breaker with tough, 60g ripstop nylon. A vented back panel allows moist, stuffy air to escape so you don't feel clammy. Adjustable polyurethane cuff tabs seal out drafts at the sleeves, and an extended back hem covers you while you're bent over the handlebars. Dakine also included reflective logos that make you more visible at night.
The fit is what Dakine calls 'All Mtn/Trail.' It's not as loose as a freeride jacket, but it's not as tight as a fitted road jacket, either. It's a flattering, women-specific cut—narrow at the waist and slightly wider at the hips—rather than a boxy men's fit. The sleeves are articulated for a natural feel in the riding position.
The Dakine Women's Breaker Jacket comes in four sizes from Small to X-Large. It's available in the colors Black and Watermelon.
