Tempest Pro

(1 customer review)


The Tempest Packable Jacket is easy to wear and always there when the weather unpredictably turns.

The Tempest jacket is the solution for riders looking to keep weight to a minimum and protection to a maximum. Our new ‘Pro’ version has an improved fabric function and high stretch cuff section to make taking gloves off a dream and another expandable section each side at the back, to relieve pressure from the waist if you are carrying extra food or tools in your back jersey pockets. Our fabric mill has managed to increase the waterproof  rating in the new  HydraStop2 material, improving its effectiveness to remove body moisture. The jacket will keep you warm regardless of what the weather throws at you and will fit easily into its own stuff bag and into any jersey pocket.

As befits a high function garment, the jacket is tailored to be very close fitting with no excess fabric to slow you down. The sleeves are constructed in a three-piece design making them extremely sleek and enhancing the fit.  There are taped seams throughout, doubled stitched for durability. A storm proof zip and high collar keeps you protected when the skys open. There is also a wind guard/baffle behind the zip, in addition to a zip garage, which keeps out wind and rain. On the collar a softer cotton material helps prevent any discomfort on the neck.

Further details keep the rain at bay; there are internal wrist gaiters to seal against the skin and integrate with gloves, and the front zip is also waterproof. Reflective tape on the back of the sleeves aids visibility in low light and poor conditions.

High function/High performing- 4 season garment.

    I bought a Tempest pro just before I went on holiday to Tenerife and brought it along with me, over there I used it 3 times, the first 2 were coming down off Teide, both times it was dry but extremely cold, 8c the first day and 3c the next. while I’d rather have had my Mistral or Mistral pro the Tempest did a great job keeping the wind chill at bay on what is a very long descent with no real area to pedal to warm up. The 3rd time I had to use it was on the TF28 coming back towards Granidilla, it was 13c and showery, the jacket kept me warm and dry with just a baselayer and short sleeved jersey on and no overheating on the climbing sections. I’m delighted with it, it’ll be in my pocket a lot of times over the Spring/Summer/Autumn. I sized up one from my usual L in Mistral, just so I can use it over layers. A great piece of kit once again from Galibier.
