Around Specialized HQ, this piece is called the "quiver-killer" and the prototypes have mysteriously disappeared. In the past, you had to decide whether you wanted to have a lightweight packable jacket that would protect you from wind or a not-so-packable jacket to protect you from water. Now you don't have to choose, as we have created a jacket for both conditions while allowing full packability. Using a lightweight shell fabric and ultra-thin water-proof breathable membrane, the Deflect H2O Pac Jacket provides the protection of much heavier pieces that will fit into a jersey pocket. We added all the standard water protection features in this one: taped seams, YKK Water Guard Zippers, and wrist cuffs engineered to seal water out. - Deflect 2.5-layer is a woven fabric that's wind-resistant, water-resistant, and highly breathable in order to maintain an effective barrier between you and elements. - Fully taped seams prevent water intrusion at the stitches and seams. - Partial elastic at the waist and wrists seals out wind and water. - Watertight YKK AquaGuard zippers prevent unwanted water seepage. - High-visibility reflective elements increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions. - Deflect UV 50+ protects your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays. - Form Fit closely and precisely conforms to the curves of the body, ensuring an unrivaled level of fit. and comfort. - Fabric weight: 72g
Your relationship with the weather forecast can be touch and go. Sometimes the forecast is right, but often times, not so much. And for when the weather doesn't want to cooperate, there's the Deflect Jacket with SWAT. Pertex Nylon was used for its breathability and wind resistance, and with a DWR coat, it's also water-resistant. To add to its mountain capability, we've added abrasion-resistant panels to the arms of the jacket, so it won't rip or tear easily when you're shredding singletrack. Unlike many of our other SWAT products, this jacket doesn't house a myriad of pockets. Instead, it has one—simple and clean. While it may seem like a normal stuff pocket, it's actually been designed in a rectangle shape to fit into the down tube of our SWAT-equipped bikes. The Deflect Jacket with SWAT is sure to be your go-to variable weather jacket, both on and off the bike. - The Deflect jacket uses lightweight Pertex Quantum Air fabric engineered to offer wind and water resistance with best-in-class breathability for hard efforts. - Minimal bulk and a built-in pocket helps it fit into any pocket, pack, or bike equipped with SWAT. - Pertex nylon fabric is couple with a DWR treatment to protect against water. - Abrasion panels are designed to protect the jacket through the toughest trail conditions. - Under helmet integrated scuba hood with fixed elastic binding creates added protection with the perfect fit.
There's cold and then there's freezing cold. And while finding the perfect jacket at either end of the spectrum is pretty easy, the temperature range in between is where you'll spend the majority of your time on the road. Of course, this makes finding the perfect jacket pretty tough, that is until you pickup our Men's Element Jacket. The jacket is made from one of the most venerable materials in the business, three-layer softshell, and it's placed to provide full coverage and protection. As its name suggests, this material is extremely wind- and water-resistant. But what its name doesn't tell you is that it's also highly efficient at wicking moisture away from the skin, while also remaining soft against the skin and quite breathable. This fabric also possesses the perfect amount of stretch, which complements the articulated cycling cut of the jacket. Essentially, this all adds up to a complete freedom of movement throughout the motions of cycling, which equates to the elimination of any rubbing, pinching, or chafing. The Element Jacket also includes other weather-fighting properties, like an offset front zipper that prevents drafts and keeps the zipper off of your chin. There are also wrist seals that prevent air and water from infiltrating the jacket via the sleeve openings, and a pop collar that performs similar duties at the neck opening. - Exclusive three-layer softshell fabric features a four-way stretch that provides maximum mobility, articulation, and comfort. - Three external storage pockets are located on the back, as well as one zippered secure pocket. - Reflective details increase your visibility to motorists and fellow trail users in low-light conditions.
When you ride in frigid conditions, your options for lightweight insulation under your outerwear are limited. It's typically been a fleece jersey with rear pockets that only adds to bulk and weight. Insulation with a high warmth-to-weight ratio, like down feathers or polyester fiber-fill are ideal, but those materials need to be encapsulated with a coated fabric to contain them, cutting breathability down significantly. Our solution is Polartec Alpha insulation that provides insulation without the need to encapsulate, giving you unimpeded breathability for a warm, dry ride. The outer shell is lightweight and uncoated, furthering the flow of perspiration and allowing the piece to packable when you need to de-layer when things get too hot. The jacket is designed to be worn under an outer jacket, such as our Deflect H2O pieces, so the fit is close to the body to eliminate any bulk. An under-the-helmet hood provides an added wind layer and traps heat in where you lose it, at the top of your head, and we finish off the neck and wrists with reflective binding for visibility in case you're caught out after sundown. - Woven outer shell with 90g Polartec Alpha breathable insulation combines to create a packable and warming insulation piece. - A non-insulated hood is intended to be used under the helmet to keep the wind at bay and to trap heat on cold rides. - Two front hand pockets keep your hands warm off the bike and provide room for your small essentials and electronics. - Inside pockets are perfect to store a hat or gloves when things start to heat up. - Edge binding at the wrists and collar seal in warmth and feature reflective tape woven-in for increased visibility to motorists in low-light conditions. - Deflect UV 50+ protects against harmful UV rays. - The fit is close to the body for layering under outerwear. For a looser, "street fit," we recommend one size up. - Shell fabric weight: 48g
