Inoculate yourself against extreme weather with the Antidote. Mechanical venting at your chest and arms keeps you cool at speed, while the tape-sealed three layer HydroFoil™ Plus fabric keeps the big bad wolf at bay.
Specifically developed for high aerobic activities, HydroFoil™ Plus combines a lightweight ripstop nylon shell with a composite membrane that is completely waterproof, totally windproof and extremely breathable. The outer fabric is the latest new-generation Pertex® Shield+ membrane. It is more than twice as breathable as most other quality waterproof-breathable fabrics, and has a small amount of stretch allowing a closer fit. The outer fabric is treated with a durable water repellent finish that encourages rain to bead up and roll off, while there is a lightweight tricot mesh on the inside for greater durability and improved moisture dispersion.

▹ Which jacket is best for me?
▹ How waterproof is it?
▹ How breathable is it?
It is very well-designed (lots of zipped pockets), lightweight and definitely waterproof. Delighted with this purchase
Love it. Great colour, very breathable
Finally stopped procrastinating and brought a waterproof jacket for cycling. Why have I waited so long to do this I ask myself after my first ride with my new Ground Effect Antidote Jacket? I absolutely love it and now wonder how I went so long without it. Defiantly recommend this amazing Jacket. Great for wet or windy weather, as keeps both elements out and keeps me warm and dry, love it!!
I don't know I am wearing the Antidote. It has kept me dry in drizzle. The wind vents are great. The sleeves are too big/wide, but that means it is easy to take the jacket off, and there are Velcro straps to tighten the sleeves. The orange colour is a great safe colour.
Love the fact that the jacket is so breathable. Also a secret find of a inner tube patch in the pocket.
