A clear, breathable rain jacket that fits in your jersey pocket.

Pactimo began in 2003 in Denver, Colorado and continues to manufacture custom cycling clothing from their factory in China for a huge number of teams worldwide. Alongside their custom apparel, they now offer a branded line of well-thought out gear with plenty to tempt us ladies to part with our cash.
The Women’s Ultra-Light rain jacket comes in two colours – black and a see-through white number that’s designed for your team kit to show through.
Initially, I had my reservations about this jacket – it looked worryingly like a prophylactic when first unwrapped, and having tested some really horrid clear rain jackets, I was concerned it would feel unpleasantly rubbery.
Thankfully, Pactimo have used a very soft, stretchy fabric, which is not plasticky at all. It is slightly noisy, but you get used to it.
