The Showers Pass Elite 2.1 Jacket gives you all the protection you need to stay dry during rainy commutes or training rides. Made from highly breathable and water blocking eVent 3L fabric, this jacket will fend off the rain and keep you dry no matter how long you're out there.

A superior rain and cold weather jacket!

I've put it through the wringer

My wife and I purchased Showers Pass Elite 2.1 jackets mid-year 2015. The short of it is if you are looking for an exceptional cycling rain jacket that can also double as sub-freezing temperature winter riding outer layer this is the jacket for you. I am an Assos fan, but you just can not find a better rain (versus shower) riding jacket in my opinion. On long hard climbs or all-out 20 mph plus flats it is easy to regulate your body heat and moisture control using the "pit-zips" with waterproof zippers. I love the long drop tail to keep the road spray off my butt. The cut (size L for me, 5'10", 168 Lbs.) is "drop bar comfortable", roomy enough to accommodate a base layer, winter riding jersey, and a snug cut Assos Airjack 851 jacket and not be constricted, yet a clean enough cut that it does not flap in the wind when wearing a light base layer and summer jersey underneath. Great 3M reflective trim to keep you visible to drivers when light conditions are poor. The left-side chest media pocket is a great pocket to keep your phone or credit card/cash stash easily accessible without having to grope through multiple under layers. The Velcro cuffs make it easy to snug up and tuck into your gloves. These jackets work so well that not only do we use them for cycling, we also find them being our go-to rain jackets on camping trips, our after-dark dog walks, and our winter running jackets. As this is written the jackets have been on the go for the better part of five and half years, they literally have a lot of miles one them, and they are standing up wonderfully. Highly recommend and we would by them again. NOTE: we also purchased the Showers Pass Rain Hood which attaches via Velcro tabs to this and other Showers Pass jackets. The basic design and quality of the hood is great, however I wish they would make the wraparound 'neck-throat" piece a little longer. I typically wear a 16-inch neck shirt. With stand-up collars on the Showers Pass Elite 2.1 I find the neck-throat closure on the hood could use an inch or so more length to keep it comfortable. I did contact Showers Pass and suggested that to them. Hopefully they will or have acted on that.
