There’s nothing quite like that first nice mountain ride of the spring—the company, the sunshine, the birds singing. There’s also nothing like the feeling of despair when the lovely day turns into a sleet-storm about halfway up. That’s why you want the WS Team Edition Men’s All Weather Rain Vest, Etxeondo’s sleek all-weather layer, when you’re not sure what the mountains have in store.
Made of Windstopper fabric, which is exactly what it sounds like, the WS Team is capable of blocking wind and repelling water on cold, wet stretches of road. It’s cut to be sleek and slim, since Etxeondo originally designed it for its team riders, and has a few reflective details for visibility in dark and crappy weather, and even the rear pockets have drain holes so you don’t have to pull extra water up the climb.
