POC is based in Scandinavia, so they know a thing or two about riding in adverse weather conditions. No one likes riding in the wind and rain, but for those days you just can’t take off, the POC All-Weather Vest can act as an essential first line of defense. Made from a lightweight but densely woven stretchy material, the All-Weather Vest offers excellent protection against biting winds. The DWR coating helps it keep out the pounding rain while the two-way zip and added mid-chest Velcro closure make it very easy to ventilate, even if you don’t want to expose your front completely. There are two covered openings in the backside to make it possible for you to access your jersey pockets without having to fumble, and there is even a small zippered pocket in the center of the back suitable for a mobile phone or some similarly important item. Reflective detailing will keep you visible in low level lighting situations.
