How does the old engineering saying go? Comfortable, breathable, waterproof, pick any two? That rule no longer applies. Enter the Showers Pass Softshell Trainer, $200.
It’s one those pieces of clothing that makes you say, “yes!” when you put in for the first time, and it will soon become the jacket you reach for every time. It features stretchy waterproof softshell fabric with overtaped seams to keep you warm and dry. It also has forward positioned active front/side airflow vents to keep you cool when the ride heat up. There are chest and multi-section rear cargo pockets to safely and conveniently stow your gear. Last but not least, the Softshell Trainer has reflective black piping to keep you stealth during the day but safe and visible on those dark rides. Comfortable, breathable, and waterproof? Pick any three.
