We don't condone rutting out trails when it's pouring cats and dogs, but if you find yourself caught out, having the Deflectª H2O Mountain Active Shell Jacket will get you out of a jam. The solution to this problem all starts with the materials, which is why we selected the venerable Gore® WINDSTOPPER® Active Shell for the construction. This woven fabric rests at the pinnacle of active weather protection, boasting equal parts breathability and wind resistance. And furthering these features, the jacket includes front venting pockets, hook-and-loop wrist closures, and watertight, coated zippers throughout. To keep water off of your head, the jacket also features a three-panel hood with a rain visor that easily fits under your helmet. For protected storage of all your goods, we included a zippered chest pocket, as well as a SWATª pass-through pocket at the rear.
