The Northwave Acqua Pro Rainshield Jacket features an internal breathable membrane making this jacket both water and windproof, ideal to defend against the downpours over the colder seasons. Featuring Northwaves Rainshield Hi Plus fabric together with a fully seam taped inner amounts to a truly lightweight and highly foldable protective layer.
“Tried this out for the first time in the driving rain last weekend and I was impressed with the waterproofing. I stayed pretty dry underneath even after 3-4 hours in almost constant rain.”
“I’ve no idea how something that looks so thin and delicate works, but it works. Kept me at a survivable temperature and dry enough during the Amade Radmarathon in Austria (heavy rain all day and snow when we went up to 1200m, ave temp 7.2°C). I was only wearing a long sleeve race jersey and vest underneath. “
“Overall its an ideal lightweight jacket if you are caught out in a shower or need an extra layer for a spring or early morning ride.”
“Great jacket. Lightweight and waterproof.”
“Bought this last minute as suddenly realised that my 200 mile bike ride was going to be mostly in the rain and was surprised at how could protection it gives.”
“I’ve been out over the course of the last month in some horrendous weather and this jacket has held up really well against the elements”
“Folds down a treat and so great for long rides with changeable weather.”
Colours: Flo yellow and white.
