When you need the absolute lightest weight waterproof jacket possible, reach for the women's LIGHTNING RACE WATERPROOF JACKET. Designed to fit the requirements for ultra races, this minimalist shell is free of pockets or added bulk, but has a hood and taped seams for full protection.
AdvancedSkin Dry Technology protects you from rain, snow and wind from the outside, while providing breathability through the membrane, allowing moisture vapor to escape and keep you comfortable.
Fully seam-sealed. Every seam on the garment is sealed from the elements.
Fabric and membrane are bonded together. A print protects the membrane. The product doesn't need to be lined, reducing weight.
Skin fit hood:
A hood that fits close to the head, ideal for high-output activities when you don't wear a helmet.
On tops and bottoms, Active fit is close fitting and lets you move. Not too tight, not too loose.
Elastic hem helps prevent cold air or snow from getting inside the garment.
Inserts with reflective properties for nighttime visibility.
Engineered sleeves and elbows to increase the range of motion while reducing the bulk of fabrics.
Partly elasticated cuffs:
Minimalist hem construction to fit close to wrist.
Resists some, but not total, water penetration.
Durable water repellent, or DWR, is a coating added to fabrics at the factory to make them water-resistant (or hydrophobic).
