When the clouds ahead look menacing, don’t pack it in; just throw on iXS’s Sinister 3.5 BC Jacket and keep on pedaling. This awesome jacket features everything you could want in a performance jacket, and it’s no slouch as a casual piece for a night out on the town. Made from stretchy waterproof and windproof material with welded seams, the Sinister moves freely with you while keeping you warm and dry. An internal mesh lining helps wick sweat, and zippered armpit zips provide venting. Up top, the hood fits over a helmet and its extension prevents rain from dripping on your face, but you can zip off the hood if that’s more your flavor. In addition to the two side pockets, you also get two waterproof pockets–one on the chest and one on the sleeve. Velcro closures on the cuffs let you secure the sleeves over or under your gloves.
