Technically warm and dry.
Sloppy conditions add a technical aspect to riding that require a mastery of bike control few possess. A certain UK bloke's 'loose and wild' winning run at the 2011 World Championship in Champery quickly comes to mind. If you ever plan on standing course-side at one of these events, an insulated and rain-proof top like the Troy Lee Designs Tech Jacket is going to be your best friend.
TLD has a long history with Downhill Mountain biking, remember Palmer's custom painted Intense bikes and iconic full-face helmets of the mid '90s? Now, thanks to a partnership with Adidas, TLD is expanding its product line from DH/Moto gear to apparel that expertly mixes street style with technical features. You'll find a light poly fill in the Tech Jacket that keeps your core toasty, along with a rain-resistant polyester outer shell for coverage when precipitation livens things up.
Ideal for witnessing riders slide-for-life or smear muck like a pro, the Tech Jacket is also going to be a perfect top for post-ride, and camping comfort in cool and damp climates. A draw cord at the hem prevents upshirt drafts, and a rain-proof hood along with hook-and-loop cuffs lock in body heat.
The Troy Lee Designs Tech Jacket has two front zipped pockets to keep keys, i.d., and electronics secure, and it comes in sizes Small through XX-Large. A TLD signature shares real-estate on the Navy Blue chest and back with a classic Adidas Trefoil, while the Red sleeves subtly pay homage to the brand with three stripes.
