At Higher Gear, we’re big fans of the Sugoi Versa Jacket – and we think it makes a great gift for the cyclist or runner in your life!
The Versa Jacket is Sugoi’s answer to the joke, “If you don’t like the weather in Chicago, just wait fifteen minutes” – quickly transforming from a jacket to a vest and back to a jacket while on the go, through the magic of magnets.
If we’ve learned anything over the last couple of weeks, we’re in for a roller coaster ride of a spring. While we highly recommend Endura’s Pakajak for an emergency jacket to keep stashed for sudden changes in temperature, a packable jacket might not be enough for this week’s return of chilly temperatures. So we starting digging through our closet and found our old friend, the Sugoi Versa Jacket. With one minor adjustment, you’ll be ready to roll in the rain, sleet or snow that is dampening our spring…
We want to introduce you to the Versa Firewall 180 Vest, offering the ultimate in core warmth and layered protection. The Firewall 180 material is a lightweight thermal knit laminate that offers protection from both wind and rain. Subtle reflective detailing offers visibility in low-light and nighttime conditions. Two front zip pockets and one rear pocket give you plenty of options for stowing items on a ride or a run.
The feature that has us really excited about the Versa Firewall Vest are its magnets. The vest was designed to integrate with the sleeves from your Versa Jacket! On days when you need more protection from the rain or the cold wind, you can partner your Versa Firewall Vest with the sleeves from your Versa Jacket.
Brilliant! And just another reason why Sugoi is, indeed, incredible!
Come in today to try on the Sugoi Versa Firewall 180 Vest for size. And, if you haven’t already, pick up your Sugoi Versa Jacket for spring!
