Through a partnership with Polartec®, Louis Garneau has created a completely waterproof jacket that acts as a hardshell yet has the ventilation, stretchability, and softness properties of a softshell. With completely waterproof features such as a full length reversed waterproof zip lined with an inner flap, sealed seams, velcro-adjustable wrists and a silicone gripper, this jacket is reliable in the wettest of conditions.
Using a proprietary construction process they are able to manage the pore sizes of the fabric to let moisture and air out and only air in. In other words, it is designed to let body heat and sweat out while keeping out rain. NeoShell fabric is a laminate like Gore-Tex, but unlike its competitor's breathable waterproof fabric, NeoShell has a two-way stretch function and it passes significantly more air through its internal membrane. The result is a truly waterproof jacket that stretches and conforms to the body like the 'water resistant' soft-shell jackets that most riders would rather wear.
