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?
Nice new fabric , never get wet , missing the under arm zips but otherwise fantastic jacket
Excellent fit and lovely and dry when the weather gets tough
Purchases for my husband who was recommended by a biking colleague hasn’t had the chance to wear as it has not been suitable conditions, but what we see of the make of the jacket can’t fault it so far
After 12 years and much hard use, spills and general abuse my original Storm Trooper opted for retirement. So what better than to buy another?
This was the 3rd (4th?) Storm Trooper jacket I've bought, and I'd happily recommend them to anyone. They are very light, adaptable & effective against moisture. In all the previous cases, it's the main zip that has failed. I notice that the new jacket has a different and more sturdy-looking zip. Let's hope it lasts longer.
