The Sportful Survival Gore Tex Mens Jacket is a race-ready jacket for facing down Mother Natures worst. Thanks to the Gore Tex Active Shell construction, it blocks out the worst wind and rain, while still being light enough to keep you comfortable during extended, hard efforts. And because it was developed in conjunction with the Tinkoff Saxo pro team, the cut and features are unassailably functional at the sports highest levels.
To ensure that the Survival jacket was capable of fending off heinous weather, Sportful chose to build it out of Gore Tex Active Shell. This three-layer construction employs Gores legendary waterproof breathable membrane, which allows sweat vapor to evacuate, while providing guaranteed waterproofness, even when faced with a deluge. The light outer fabric is treated with a DWR coating, which helps water to bead up and roll off. This prevents the jacket from wetting out, which reduces the fabrics breathability. Additionally, because of Active Shells lightweight construction, the Survival jacket easily packs into a jersey pocket, meaning that its not cumbersome to add such superior protection to your arsenal. Technical dialogue aside, the result is a lightweight, breathable jacket that lives up to Gore Texs legendary waterproof guarantee.
Technical fabrics are just that, fabrics, until theyre arranged in a functional manner. And on-the-bike function was the single-minded focus when developing the Survival jacket. Accordingly, the chest and abdomen are relatively tucked in, avoiding unsightly, and un-aero, stomach bulge when in the riding position. The drop tail keeps your backside covered, while a hidden wheel-spray flap can be deployed during the worst of the storm, and buttoned out of the way when its no longer needed. Zippered wrists make it easy to pull this jacket on without removing gloves or arm warmers, and the cam-lock zippers are easily operated by gloved hands. Zippers in the underarms allow for added ventilation when you start working up a sweat. And reflective details make you more visible to drivers, keeping you safer on the roads, which is especially important when riding in inclement weather.
The Sportful Survival Gore Tex Mens Jacket is available in seven sizes, from X-Small, to 3X-Large, and in the color Black.
