Showers Pass clothing has released some functional exterior steez (that’s style + ease) for the outdoor, bicycle, and traveling enthusiasts with the uniquely designed, Showers Pass Atlas Jacket.
With a reflective map pattern that’s visible from 200 meters with car headlights, the Atlas Jacket is built for those who need to remain visible on the road, but also don’t want to compromise their style.
Since 1997, Showers Pass clothing has been pushing out some of the best outerwear and cycling gear for everyday cycling enthusiasts everywhere. Born from a desire to encourage more people into the cycling world with catchy clothing and gear, Showers pass is inspired by the challenges that come with varying weather conditions, much like that of Northern California and the Pacific Northwest.
“The Atlas Jacket is equally at home on a bike commute or a world tour,” says Kyle Ranson, Showers Pass president. “We wanted a jacket that supports an active outdoor lifestyle, stands up to bad weather, and offers a stylish way to stay visible to traffic at night.”
Rainier weather calls for higher performance materials and designs, both of which were used to curate the Showers Pass Atlas jacket. So, don’t let the $275 throw you off – this high-quality jacket is truly worth the price. Built with three-layers of waterproof protection and enhanced breathability, the technical fabric provides stretching room for maximum comfort when your bombing up and down hills on your commute.
Some of the jacket’s other features include a brushed lining and front hand warmer pockets that lock in extra heat to combat those cold weather rides. Meanwhile, the jacket also keeps you prepared for summer with airflow cuffs and core vents that prevent overheating.
The jacket’s MapReflect design is compiled of 11 different cities around the world that are known for their cycling culture; Portland, New York, Washington DC, Paris, Barcelona, Amsterdam, London, Newcastle, Berlin, Sydney, and Taipei. And to make things truly unique, no two jackets are the same because of the way the patterns are cut during production.
You can find the jacket and other cycling gear on the Showers Pass website.
