Eigo Delta Waterproof Cycling Jacket Poppy Red
"With waterproof zips, a zipped rear pocket and a comfortable fleece-lined collar, the Eigo ticks a lot of boxes for an everyday waterproof" What Mountain Bike magazine review, February 2014 issue.
Premium waterproof cycling jacket, packed with features; hydrophobic technology for wind and water proof performance, sealed seams, waterproof zips, cargo and Napoleon pockets, fleece lined collar, bungee fit adjusters at neck and waist, Velcro cuff adjusters, vented yoke, underarm vent zips, mesh lining and reflective piping and logos.
Fit can be tailored through the various adjusters; lockable bungees at neck and hem allow you to create a snug fit if desired to keep rain and drafts out, and the Velcro cuff adjusters mean you can fit the sleeve to your wrist or over a glove cuff.
Rated at 5,000mm waterproof and 5k breathability, the Delta cycling jacket withstands rain and transfers a good amount of moisture away from the body.
Waterproof and breathability explained: Waterproof ratings refer to the column water height reached over a 1' x 1' area of fabric before water starts to penetrate.
5,000mm = 500cm = 196' = 16' ' that's quite a lot of water on the jacket surface before penetration.
Breathability refers to the weight in grams of water vapour to pass through one square metre of fabric in a 24 hour period. 5k = 5,000g = 5kg of water vapour (or sweat!).
The rear yoke of Delta features a permanent breathing vent, and both arms have vent zips that can be opened for further breathability.
The rear cargo pocket opens to a mesh pocket liner, so this too can be opened if extra through-flow is required.
Rider comfort is enhanced through the all-over mesh lining, making Delta comfortable to wear with short or long sleeve tops underneath.
Delta is highly visible in low light conditions through the various reflective piping sections and reflective logos.
