When you’re out on an epic adventure, the weather can turn sour in a minute. Be prepared for any type of foul weather with iXS’s Suada Backcountry Alpine Jacket. Its waterproof/windproof shell has welded seams for extreme protection against the elements, while the synthetic thermal insulation keeps you toasty when the mercury drops. Exceptionally breathable materials and zippered armpit vents help regulate temperature during hard efforts. Up top, the adjustable hood fits over a helmet, and its extended brim prevents rain from dripping in your face. In addition to the two side pockets, you also get a waterproof chest pocket. Velcro closures on the cuffs keep the water out when it’s really coming down, but who cares—it just feels good to be out riding.
