The folks at Showers Pass say the Elite 2.0 jacket is “the ultimate rain jacket that ALSO works well in cool dry weather.” After using this jacket for the past couple months, I can say I wholeheartedly agree. And don’t just take it from me, the Elite 2.0 is the only cycling specific jacket recently honored in OUTSIDE Magazine’s “Gear of the Year Awards” Annual Buyers Guide.
Living in the Pacific Northwest make’s owning a cycling rain jacket a necessity. Even when it’s not raining, having a lightweight, breathable jacket for when it’s slightly cooler is an important piece of gear. We’ve had a great end of the summer run on nice weather, but the rain and cold weather is upon is, and this jacket is becoming part of my everyday riding gear.
