Choosing your Jacket
When choosing your jacket, give priority to the quality of the membrane and fabric as well as comfort. Other elements to take into account are the fit, if you wish to wear your race vest under or over your jacket, the number of pockets and their accessibility, its breathability, lightness and waterproofness, for races, it is normally a minimum of 10K waterproof.
As soon as temperatures drop, the jacket becomes necessary to protect you from the cold and rain. Our waterproof jackets are designed with our waterproof and breathable MP+ membrane where our teams have worked on different levels of protection.
MP+ Revolutiv membrane: The most technical membrane 20k/25k The MP+ Responsiv membrane: For efficient and versatile protection 15k/15k The MP+ Activ membrane: Balanced performance 10k/10k
