Packable jackets can be a real hit or miss in the performance department, either they're too light to block the elements or too heavy to even fit snuggly into a jersey pocket. This isn't the case with Specialized's Deflect Jacket, however. It's constructed from their wind- and water-resistant, stretch-woven fabric that protects against most conditions and allows for complete freedom of movement while in the saddle. The jacket also includes wrist seals to stop water from seeping up the sleeves and a drop tail to deflect wheel-spray. It features Specialized's Standard Fit, which means that it forms nicely to the body, while still leaving enough room for light layering. Meanwhile, storage of your ride essentials is handled by one welded internal chest pocket and a zippered rear pocket that also doubles as a pouch for the jacket to pack into.
- Two-way front zipper creates customizable venting options on-the-fly.
- High-visibility drop tail blocks wheel-spray, and reflective elements increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions.
- Adjustable drawcord hem allows you to dial-in the fit and block-out the elements on-the-fly.
- DeflectUV 50+ protects the skin against harmful UV rays.
