DESCRIPTION

WINNER - BICYCLING MAGAZINE GEAR OF THE YEAR.

What makes this jacket "Magic"? Its breathability. The Polartec® NeoShell® is so breathable that we use it as an everyday cycling jacket. In fact, when we were evaluating this fabric back in 2019 it was so breathable that we questioned whether it was the correct waterproof fabric (it was), and after that, we were sold.


Riding in the rain sucks, and it sucks, even more, when you aren’t prepared. This jacket allows you always to be ready for that unlikely chance of rain. Made right here in California with bonded and taped seams, there is no other jacket like it. The soft, stretchy fabric allows you to wear it with layers or a jersey depending on the temperature. The rear zipper pocket offers enough space for a phone or anything else that needs to be zipped away from the elements. We recommend this jacket for temps from 55-32 degrees.

EXTREMELY BREATHABLE

WEAR IT ALL DAY, ORNOT

MADE IN USA / TAPED SEAMS

For 2022 we have evolved the award winning Magic Shell by adding bonded and taped seams. Previously overlock (stitched) seams were used to construct the jacket and while the fabric is waterproof, the seams and thread would allow some moisture to seep in during heavy and sustained rain.

The new construction has critical seams bonded (no thread) and then taped. this creates a smooth transition between panels to improve comfort where the seams touch you and improve water repellency. We're still not going to call it 100% waterproof, but it's in the 99% zone.

WHY MAGIC?

Claims of windproof, waterproof, and breathable are typically red flags and met with high levels of skepticism. This was our reaction and only after rigorous testing in which the materials demonstrated significantly better breathability than all other softshell materials did we make our final choice. Due diligence was performed in everything from California sun to California hail. Critical seams on this jacket are bonded and taped, and the main focus of this jacket weather resistant breathability for rides in storms that are not categorized by a number. However, if you find yourself out when the weather turns, this jacket will be your best friend. 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Polartec® NeoShell® features a proprietary, patented construction process creating a new hydrophobiac, microporous membrane with a tightly controlled range of pore sizes.  It has the durability and stretch of a polyurethane film plus the breathability of a microporous structure.  This unique construction allows for positive air exchange to drive moisture vapor release while remaining completely waterproof.  It does all of this at a fraction of the weight of current membrane technologies so a garment made of Neoshell is lighter, softer, and more supple.
