When storm clouds burst it’s time to seek out a safe haven from the downpour. And when you’re on the bike, that protective shelter comes via the Haven Rain Jacket.
Upon first pulling it on, it’s likely the lack of weight that’s most striking, weighing just 128 grams. However, when caught in the rain the waterproof fabric, with a 20,000mm water column rating, offers superb protection that belies the lightweight nature of the jacket. Taped seams also prevent water from seeping in over the long haul and the DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish prolongs the rain protection on offer.
While rain is kept out, the high degree of breathability prevents you from getting soaked from sweat on the inside too. After all, just because it’s raining doesn’t mean you’re going to back off the high-intensity efforts. You’ll also find back and underarm ventilation provides extra airflow, regulating temperature as your efforts rise and fall with the terrain.
when you’re battling the weather you don’t want to be wasting energy. To this end, POC have cut the Haven to be as slim as possible while not restricting easy movement. Cut for road riding, you’ll be able to power through the rain with minimal fabric flapping. Elasticated hem and sleeve openings also keep the jacket comfortably in place. And for dark skies, reflective details make you easy to spot when caught in the shine of headlamps.
