There are times when the combination of the right type of soil and a light, misty rain can spell epic riding. We've ridden some trails in the Pacific Northwest that turn a light rain into intensely rail-able turns and face-melting speed. Even so, feeling wet and clammy during a ride can be a real bummer. Having a light rain jacket on hand can be the key to a day you'll talk about for years to come, and the Dakine Blitz Jacket fits the bill nicely. This waterproof breathable 2. 5-layer jacket will stash compactly in your pack, so you'll be ready when the weather pulls a fast one. Dakine built the Blitz Jacket with 10K waterproof, 10,000g/m breathable nylon fabric that will stand up to all but the nastiest downpours. This isn't a spray-on treatment, it's a waterproof breathable membrane that will last for years with proper care. The seams are fully taped to eliminate the typical weak spots in the waterproofing. The jacket's breathability allows moisture to escape, so you don't get that nasty, clammy feeling that some jackets will give you. Dakine also equipped the Blitz with zippered underarm vents that allow you to dump heat in a hurry and let the fresh air in. A vented back panel forces out stale, clammy air. The fit is pure freeride. The Blitz is loose and comfortable. Articulated sleeves give the jacket a natural feel, and the dropped tail covers you in the seated position. Dakine rounded out the Blitz's construction with adjustable cuffs, a helmet-compatible cinch hood, and water-resistant zippers. The Dakine Blitz Jacket comes in four sizes from Small to X-Large. It's available in the colors Octane and Black.
