Light-weight and packable ‘out-of-the-pocket’ jacket, that combines technical weatherproofing and great breathability.
The Tempest jacket provides you with the high level of protection of our Tourmalet jacket but in a lighter, packable construction and still as breathable as ever. Our fabric mill has managed to reduce the thickness of the HydraStop material used in the Tourmalet without reducing its effectiveness. The jacket will take everything that the weather can throw at it and at only 164 grams (large), 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.
High function/High performing- 4 season garment.
Available in Zinc Orange or Petrol Blue
One of our testers who used the Tempest for 5 months:
“Road for 3 and a half hours with three heavy showers during it. Never felt wet or the need to take it off in between”
“A fantastic lightweight jacket with impressive breathability”
The garment is fitted, with limited stretch in the fabric. If you want a relaxed fit, or wish it to go over a winter jacket, we would advise to size up, from normal.
