Instead of letting a sudden downpour ruin your next ride, prepare yourself buy stashing the Mavic Sprint Jacket in your jersey and letting your worries roll off like rain rolls off the Sprint. The Sprint uses the 1-2-3-punch combination of Air Mesh fabric, seam sealing, and Ergo Cuffs to provide a veritable fortress against nasty weather.
The Air Mesh fabric provides a waterproof level of protection up to 9000mm water column. Essentially, this amounts to protection from either light rain or dry snow. However, with the jacket's fully-sealed seam construction, we predict that it's capable of withstanding far more. This is why Mavic has bestowed its coveted Rain Ride classification upon it. And when you think about the title of the fabric, 'Air Mesh,' this level of protection quickly becomes rather incredible. Why? Well, Air Mesh is an open-structured material, meaning that breathability is pronounced. However, while excess heat is allowed to escape the core region, Mavic has ensured that nothing is getting in. Thus, you remain shielded from the elements without becoming overly sweaty as a consequence.
In terms of fit, though, the Sprint H2O's anatomic design continues the aforementioned waterproof characteristics. By this, we mean that Mavic's incorporation of its Ergo Cuffs guarantees a stop to water seepage at the sleeve, while the cut itself adapts to the body in order to prevent moisture infiltration at the bottom hem and collar.
For a complete closure, the jacket features a full-length zip lets, and for storage of your ride essentials, Mavic also included one chest pockets along with a large rear pocket.
The Mavic Sprint Jacket is available in sizes Small to XXX-Large and in the color Black.

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
Jacket is very well constructed. I am 6'2" and athletic build and the jacket was well fitted but allowed plenty of room for movement. A steal at $64
