“Don’t like the weather? Wait five minutes.”
Living close to Lake Michigan, we know how the weather can change on a dime. It keeps us on our toes and it is certainly never dull, but it can complicate knowing how to dress for a ride.
While we Gearheads love new gear, that doesn’t mean we buy indiscriminately. We choose items that provide the best value for our money. In terms of clothing, that means well-constructed cycling-specific pieces that we can use through a variety of conditions – which is why we are excited about the Endura Luminite 4-in-1 Jacket.
As the name implies, this version of the Luminite Jacket offers increased functionality. It comes with two pieces. The outer shell is made of a fully seam-sealed compact waterproof breathable fabric. The internal layer is a reversible, windproof fleece jacket that zips into the outer shell. These two pieces can be worn individually or together to make for one all-weather solution for your cycling needs.
The outer shell features a bonded and laser cut double storm flap on the center zip. It has hand-warmer and rear pockets, as well as adjustable neck and hem cords concealed in the front pockets.
True to its Luminite name, it offers a variety of features to keep the commuter or winter road warrior visible during the short winter days. Both the inner windproof layer and the shell are emblazoned with high visibility 360 degree reflective safety chevrons. The outer layer features reflective velcro cuff adjusters as well as the signature Luminite integrated rear LED light, with 3 flash options for additional security. Check out the video below to see how the Luminite 4-in-1 makes riders visible in the dark:
Just because Mother Nature is indecisive, doesn’t mean you need to be. Endura’s Luminite 4-in-1 jacket has more functions than a Swiss army knife. You’ll be prepared for rain, wind and cold, whatever Mother Nature has in store.
