Lightweight & Packable: The Tempest jacket offers the same high-level protection as our Tourmalet jacket but in a lighter, easily stowable design. Crafted with a reduced thickness of the HydraStop material, it ensures warmth and breathability without compromising on protection. Weighing only 154 grams for a large size, it packs conveniently into its own stuff bag, fitting seamlessly into any jersey pocket.
High Performance Design: Tailored for a snug fit, this jacket features sleek three-piece constructed sleeves and has no excess fabric to hinder speed. Enhanced with taped, double-stitched seams for durability, it also boasts a storm-proof zip and high collar for those unexpected downpours. Additional features like a wind baffle behind the zip, a zip garage, and a soft cotton material on the collar ensure maximum comfort and protection against the elements.
