Craft Lithe Jacket
When you need packable lightweight protection against wind and water, Craft offers an alternative to the ill-fitting options, as well as the super high-end pieces that run a few hundred dollars, give or take. This second generation Featherlight Jacket is made from ultra-lightweight woven polyester fabric which is treated with DWR for wind and water protection. Craft adds elastane-aided panels which provide stretch to this natural-fit piece. Breathable panels in the major perspiration zones release some heat and moisture, but keep in mind that this piece is geared towards affordable protection.
The shape and overall cut of the Featherlight Jacket demonstrates it as a pure cycling piece, even down to the angled arm design, which allow the rider to get low without pulling too much off the wrist or down on the shoulders. Craft uses a soft finish on the neck, arm and lower hem elastic to keep you comfortable, a feature also find in the zipper garage at the top of the water resistant, reflective zipper. Speaking of safety, Craft uses considerable reflective highlights for 360° visibility. Lastly, the single rear pocket is fine for simple storage, but is really designed with a pull cord and as storage for the jacket when not in use. The Featherlight Jacket will fit easily into a rear pocket, so there is no excuse for not taking it with you when the conditions are variable or questionable. Stay dry and retain warmth with Craft, a clothing company that knows a few things about inclement weather.
