Interstellar garb for storming wide open spaces or darting through rush hour traffic. Gordon repels rain and blocks out nasty winds but remains highly breathable thanks to its lightweight 3 layer HydroFoil™ Plus fabric. Zipping off the yoke and sleeves converts it into a hi-visibility waterproof vest... great in warmer conditions when you want maximum cooling but only need partial protection from the elements. Sometimes less is more.
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.

Since purchasing my FLASH GORDON I have been out riding in all weather,rain,Gail's ,more rain, more Gail's, not once hav I come home wet, cold, or feeling the weather has got the better of me. This jacket gives me the conference to go out MTBing no matter what the weather. BIG ups!! To FLASH GORDON
I immediately liked the feel of the Flash Gordan for comfort, light weight and nice bright safety colour.
My previous GE jacket slowly faded away, after serving above & beyond the call of duty on my daily commute. I simply replaced one jacket with another from the same stable in expectation of the same service.
This outer layer keeps the wind out and the warmth in for my morning rides around Melbourne.
Have just tried my new Flash Gordon in France on a supposedly summer day that was cold wet and windy. Kept me warm and dry and not the least bit sweaty as happens with most rain jackets. I'm delighted with it...well done!
