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.

Great jacket, thanks to the team at Ground Effect for the excellent advice and assistance. Much appreciated and can't recommend enough.
I bought this for my husband for Father's Day as he had had abit of a hiatus from cycling and his old and much used Flash Gordon had been left lying around in an old bike bag and he needed an upgrade. Great jacket - I have the ladies one too. He loved it!
My new Flash Gordon jacket arrived to replace my old one that has finally decided, after many years of faithful use, to become not so useful. Cycling, running, kayaking, walking, sleeves on and off, rain, hail and snow - this is an amazing and versatile jacket. Bright for night and low light visibility; zipping the sleeves/shrug on and off, gives options for temperature regulation; and waterproof in the heaviest of rain - even with a pack, where many jackets let water in across the shoulders - my Flash Gordon keeps on giving. Another brilliant Ground Effects product. Keep up the amazing work.
The Flash Gordon is a very well made product. Very clever design and very stylish and the orange colour looks great. Having removable sleeves is really useful and is a clever idea. They are easy to take off and put on. As promised it is extremely waterproof yet also breaths so I have not noticed a build up of sweat inside the jacket.I also intend to use my jacket when I go hiking due to its waterproof capabilities. I have no hesitation in recommending this product, it is a quality product and I am very happy with my purchase.
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
