"It's purpose is to keep you warm and dry in a wide range of temperatures while not flapping around."

by AJ Johnson / Triathlete.com

"Naming a product should be pretty straightforward, unless that product doesn’t fit into any of the standard categories. That’s the case for the Storm Hybrid Jacket from Pactimo. It’s not a jacket in the traditional sense, but nor is it a thermal jersey with matching arm warmers. As the term hybrid implies, it is two pieces merged together to be incredibly versatile.

Trying to describe the Storm Hybrid is not easy. If you started with a thermal jersey, slimmed it down for a very close fit, added matching arm warmers and gave the whole thing a water shedding treatment, you’d end up with the Storm Hybrid. It’s purpose is to keep you warm and dry in a wide range of temperatures while not flapping around.

The Hybrid is made with Aerowind stretch thermal fabric that has a soft feel inside. The DWR (Durable Water Repellent) treatment gives the outside a slick sheen to it. It has reflective piping along the back, a full zipper and the three back pockets. All of this is very simple, but don’t that let you fool you into thinking it’s not effective."

17th Battlefield to Vermont - B2VT

April 17, 2017

June 10, 2017 will be the 17th annual edition of the B2VT ride (formerly known as the B2B). In 2014 the course was altered to accommodate the new start and finish points but still contained most of the original B2B course (but was even more hilly!). The 2017 B2VT Ride will continue to be one of the most challenging single day rides in New England. By design, it is not for everyone.  This ride is for cyclists who are physically and mentally tough, don’t whine, excel in the face of challenges, know the rules of the road and can ride 130+ miles to the finish safely and without their hands being held. While it is an epic ride, it is not for novice riders nor the faint of heart…
