Go ahead and get muddy.
Not everyone lives in arid climates. So, if you hail from a region that's stuck under damp clouds a majority of the time, you'll find Mavic's Notch H20 Jacket to be an essential piece of gear. Its combination of mountain bike-specific features, fully-taped seams, and waterproof construction ensure that you'll stay dry when precipitation joins you for the ride.
The Mavic Notch H2O Jacket is small enough to cram into your riding pack, and it features an expandable Pak Bak for the versatility to stretch it over the pack to keep it, and its contents, dry. Mavic's Rain Ride fabric blocks drizzle, yet it's still breathable enough to keep your core dry and cool. Furthering this concept, the Notch's inner layer is comprised of Mavic's soft Air Mesh. Basically, this is a lightweight, open-structured fabric with a high elasticity that follows your movements while also managing thermo-regulation within jacket.
This elasticity, along with the Notch H2O's pre-curved, anatomic panels, ensures coverage without sacrificing your freedom of movement. So, you'll find that moving around the cockpit remains an unencumbered process, which, as you know, is vital to finding traction when trails are sloppy. There is one zipped chest pocket, and reflective elements enhance your visibility to motorists when traversing roads.
The Mavic Notch H2O Jacket is available in seven sizes from X-Small to XXX-Large and in the colors Athletic Green and Black.
