 Ethereal weather protection for ghosting the streets after dark. Tuck it in your rear pocket as insurance against cutting winds and sudden rain. High visibility Agent Orange ensures you're seen when it counts.

  Slim Fit - for a closer fit with less flap. Typically favoured by disciples of the tarmac, intent on travelling hard and fast. Size up if you need more room.

Gossamer-light Pertex® shell fabric weighing just 49 gsm. Tightly woven 20 denier semi-dull nylon blocks wind while a durable water repellent finish (DWR) resists drizzle. There is no coating for enhanced breathability. Mini ripstop weave with slight mechanical stretch ensures a performance fit.
  • Composition: 100% nylon.

+Hazard!™
Night travel is a spooky experience. Many Ground Effect garments feature our Hazard!™ reflective logo and piping to help remind traffic that we're on the road too.

+More than Kiwi Made
Ground Effect clothing is crafted right here in New Zealand. Has been ever since we started back in 1994. Manufacturing locally works for us. We operate a quick-response system - holding minimal stock of any one item, but churning out a few more quick-smart when the pile gets low. The upshot is that we are seldom caught with our shelves empty, so orders get despatched the same day you place them.

+Washing
  • All Ground Effect clothing enjoys a warm 40ºC machine wash. Try to avoid cold-water detergents and those with bleach, 'oxygen whitener' or fabric softener.
    • The cold-water varieties have little enzymes that are super-charged to brave the cold but can damage technical fabrics and cause skin irritation. 
    • Bleach rots natural fibres like merino, strips the dye, attacks laminates of waterproof fabrics and can also cause skin irritation.
    • Sodium Percarbonate (the main ingredient in oxygen whitener) can make colours run.
    • Fabric softener and stuff containing it like wool wash destroys the water repellent finish on waterproof and water resistant fabrics, and can cause colours to run. 
  • As a rule of thumb, a product that is easy on the planet is also easy on your body. Select a mild plant-based soap like EcoverEcostoreEarthwise or Aware.
  • Hand washing is sometimes the only option on tour, but a washing machine rinses more thoroughly and is preferable if you have the choice.
  • Most Ground Effect gear dries super-fast so hanging on the line or drooping over the bedpost is generally the best option. High heat can damage some fabrics so if you do take your threads for a spin, set the device on 'medium' or 'warm' rather than hot. A lap in the dryer is recommended for your rain jacket, after it has dried on the line, as it helps recharge its water repellent finish.

    Great Jacket

    Bought this jacket last minute for Alps to Ocean and don't know what I would have done without it. Great extra layer for chilly starts and terrific safety value on the roads - also for my husband to find me in our group! Love Ground Effect gear!

    Love the colour

    Comfy and windproof, I feel safe in traffic with the orange colour. The fit(small) is perfect for my 5'2 frame. Easy to pack away. It's my go to for rides in the hills and on the road.

    Light weight and water repellant

    I ride to work every day. The weather in Melbourne is unpredictable. I have this jacket packed away in my bag so I know even in an unexpected downpour or a 20 degree drop in temperature, I’ll get home warm and dry. It weighs nothing and packs down super small. Worth every dollar.

    Spook - a great interseason wind and shower-proof jacket!

    I love my spook jacket, it's so light so can be kept ready in a pocket. I combine it with my Tip Top when the north easterly is blowing in Canterbury.
