Packable companion for unpredictable weather.
Fickle seasons present a difficult hurdle for dedicated riders looking to complete their daily loop or training route. Those overdressed suffer in a sweaty, sauna-like mess when storm fronts give way to sunny skies. On the other hand, under-prepared riders are left at the mercy of Mother Nature, subjecting them to soaking rains and bone-chilling breezes. Where's the happy medium, you ask? We firmly believe the answer to properly dressing for rapidly changing weather lies in ultra-light, packable protection like the Mavic Women's Aksium Jacket.
The jacket's Wind SL shell blocks oncoming breezes from chilling your body while fending off passing showers and storms. Its lightweight, easy-stashing design stores within your jersey pocket without the gigantic bulge of bulkier jackets. Plus, strategically placed Air Mesh inserts prevent overheating and excess perspiration. The elastic hem remains firmly in place while blocking road spray and flinging moisture with its dropped rear. Other functional riding features include a large zippered rear pocket, reflective elements, and elastic cuffs.

Fits well for cycling. long arms and good back coverage. I have the yellow. not as bright as neon, but good enough. the blue is prettier... but i still chose yellow for visibility. hasn't rained on me yet, so i dont know about that. Good windbreaker. I am a small, but ordered a medium. good move :)
