The Component H2O jacket is the pinnacle product in our DIRT Series collection. It’s the go-to jacket for the off-road rider that needs a lightweight, comfortable, and waterproof garment for all adventures on the trails. The hard shell body of the jacket is constructed with a comfortable yet flexible waterproof stretch ripstop fabric. Rugged CORDURA® ripstop fabric is used at the shoulders and arms for increased abrasion resistance and durability. SEESMART™ CE-level 1 protectors provide protection to the rider at the shoulders and elbows. That said, its armor can also easily be *upgraded by wearing the Proteus protector jacket under the Element. In higher temperatures, airflow is created by opening the ventilation zippers at the lower and upper arms. The zippers of the front and rear pockets allow warm air to escape from the jacket and offer plenty of storage options to bring along all the items needed for the journey. The detachable hood will keep the rider dry off the bike and can be stored in the back pocket when taken off and not in use. *Make sure the included SEESMART™ armor is removed before upgrading the protection otherwise the ideal fit won’t be achieved & discomfort may ensue.

This jacket has superb venting for when working up a sweat off road, even when wearing a back pack. Zip up the generous amounts of vents, then cinch the sleeves (which fit around even the bulkiest gloves) and it keeps the chill out as well. Except for the exhaust vents, all vents can be easily used with a gloved hand; as well as the cuffs. I wear this with my own compression armour and when the winter comes there is plenty of room for warm layers. I have stacked it into a thicket of brambles and this jacket held up perfectly. I'm not sure if the softer material under the 700 denier cordura would hold up but the said cordura impact areas took the brunt with no rips or snags. The DWR and membrane have not let in any water so far- not a drop. And when the outer jacket does eventually wet out (still dry underneath) in prolonged rain, the jacket dries out in no time. I only managed to wear this towards the tail end of summer, and within the few hot days I experienced, the breathability wasn't fantastic with the vents closed-but surely that is what the vents are for? This is a consideration if you live in a hot/ wet country, but for the UK this jacket strikes a perfect balance for me with minimal compromises; providing you layer correctly.I thought the hood was novelty since you can't wear it under the helmet, however, it makes for an awesome storm collar and the hood tucks in on itself so that it doesn't parachute behind you at speed; or collect water like a scoop. The hood is removable in case you want to take it off. When sat on the bike the jacket doesn't crease around the waist; in other jackets I have used this assists in the pooling of water which can eventually lead to ingress. This is a layering jacket so it is a looser fit with a long longer back for better coverage of rear wheel fling.Finally, the jacket doesn't forewarn everyone that you are wearing a motorcycle jacket by making you sound like a packet of crisps when using it off the bike......It looks awesome as well.
