Battledress for toughing it out when the weather turns to custard. The Storm Trooper shields you from the torrent with waterproof-breathable 3 layer HydroFoil™ Plus fabric, fully tape-sealed seams and WhaleTail back. Its zip-away skullcap hood doubles as a prop for Buzz Aldrin impersonations.
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?
Easy, efficient. Good communication when jacket was not immediately available. Thank you.
This is a cool weather rainproof jacket. Durable and moderately light. have ridden both in NZ and Europe in all sorts of conditions; including rrain., hail, sleet and snow and stayed dry to tell the story.. The jacket has performed as expected. Have also once used the storm trooper as a proxy ski jacket to good effect. So very happy with the product.
I normally wear a large jacket and am pleased to say the large Storm Trooper is a prefect fit. The extra length in the sleeves is great and it stood up to a ride in the west coast rain very well. Very happy with my purchase.
Was looking for a replacement for my venerable old Storm Trooper which has served me well for many years. Spent a bit of time looking at alternatives but kept coming back to Ground Effect and glad I did - the Hydro Foil seems to work well
My old Storm Trooper was no longer keeping me dry in deluges and had done more than it's share of service, so I bought the new one, expecting the same but newer. It's way better though, the new material is way, way more breathable so the inside shower is much less of a problem. The new collar cut is good too. Yet another good product from the team at Ground Effects.
