Recommendations for Wet Weather Enduro Jacket

Hi there Husa brothers,

Looking for any recommendations for a really good wet weather enduro jacket - I am over my old Shift number, which doesn't do a very good job of shedding water and ends up weighing a tonne...

Any suggestions on tried and proven jackets guys ?

Cheers!

Azza.

My vote goes to the Klim overland jacket. It used to be called the Traverse. Awesome goretex construction, and bombproof.

Cheers,

Jason

Re: Recommendations for Wet Weather Enduro Jacket

Klim is great gear but pricey. It will be interesting to see how the quality is now that they are owned by Polaris . I have a problem wearing a 500 dollar coat when I'm going to be bouncing off trees and sliding on the ground. There is lots of gore tec gear out there at a fraction of the price of Klim. I bought a new, old stock teknic monsoon goretex jacket for 99 dollars on fleabay. Keeps me dry as a bone has removable liner and at that price I'm not worried about damaging it in a race. I have the Klim traverse pants that I wore once racing. They are now damaged and I will never wear them again in a race.

I have to agree. With Klim, you get what you pay for. If you want the best, its going to cost. It's all I buy.......

The Klim Traverse suit I have is far and away the best bike gear I've ever worn. My Tech 8s come a close second.

Do you want me to define 'best'?
