Showers Pass prepares cyclists and runners for an all-weather summer

Showers Pass is helping cyclists and runners prepare for everything that the weather throws at them this summer. The technical specialist clothing brand’s UK business has a comprehensive range of waterproof and weather resistant gear, combining activity-specific designs with features that extend their use to other outdoor activities. Leading the way are the men’s and women’s Elements and Cloudburst jackets.

The Elements jacket is a waterproof designed for mountain biking, but with the versatility for other outdoor activities. The jacket is made out of Showers Pass’s fully taped waterproof and breathable Artex 2.5 DC fabric, with in-built stretch for great freedom of movement, and a carbon print lining that delivers natural odour resistance and a dry, comfortable next-to-skin feel.

The Elements is loaded with features, including: Reinforced fabric at the shoulders for extended use with pack straps; a removable, adjustable hood that fits over a helmet and stows away in the inside pocket; extra long core vents to prevent overheating; ergonomic easy-grip zipper pulls; 360 degrees of 3M™ Scotchlite™ reflective material for maximum visibility; double toggle hem cinch for adjustability; soft, moisture wicking lining at collar; front hand warmer pockets, back pocket and inside chest pocket with audio port; light loop at collar; soft wipe for glasses inside the right hand pocket. Showers Pass has made the jacket using bluesign approved dyes that keep harmful chemicals out of the manufacturing process, protecting people and the planet. The Elements jacket weighs 453g (men’s medium) and retails at £175.

The Cloudburst is a waterproof and extremely breathable jacket for all weather running, balancing extensive features with low weight. It is made out of Showers Pass’s own eliteAIR™ fabric, with a hydrostatic head of 10,200mm and exceptional breathability of 43,000g/m2/24hrs. The material has four-way stretch for excellent freedom of movement and the soft touch inner improves comfort.

At only 278g (men’s medium), the Showers Pass Cloudburst has plenty of features for its low weight, including: Large core vents that double as mesh pockets; a low profile full front zip with storm flap and reflective trim; partially elasticated cuffs for a sleek trim fit; a large back pocket with reflective trim; double cinch cord at hem for a custom fit; and a soft, moisture-wicking lining at the collar. Reflective trim at the shoulder seams helps the wearer stay visible in poor light. The jacket packs down neatly to fit into the zipped rear pocket and has a handy hanging loop for attaching to a buckle or belt while on the move. The Clouburst jacket retails at £175
