Endura makes some great cycling clothing, but I took one look at their Pakajak and realized it’s also perfect for runners and hikers. It packs down small enough to fit in a cycling jersey, hydration pack, or the smallest of backpacks. You’d be hard pressed not to be able to find room for this handy jacket. And when you need protection from the wind and rain, it unpacks in seconds.
Constructed of Ripstop nylon, it keeps water out yet still maintains breathability for maximum comfort. While the drop tail is tailored specifically for cyclists, the mesh vents in the underarms, the elasticized cuffs, rear neck and hem will be appreciated on or off the bike. There’s also a storm flap with zip guard, and reflective trim for added visibility in less-than ideal conditions.
Color options include kelly green, bright yellow, red, white, and black for men, or sky blue, bright pink, purple, white, and black for women. Sizes run small through XX large for men, and extra small through large for women.
