Northwave Acqua Pro Rainshield Jacket Technologies:
Rainshield HiPlus: Excellent protection against rain and wind. Northwave test our fabrics in laboratory, measuring how much hydrostatic pressure a fabric can withstand. You need 5000 mm of water before this membrane even begins to absorb water.
Fully Taped: Stitching is often a weak spot as the fabric is pierced and water can seep in. That’s why we’ve insulated it with a taping technique that prevents any penetration.
Internal Breathable Membrane: We’ve bonded the membrane to the fabrics to create a totally waterproof and windproof barrier. Garments with this barrier are as light as ever and offer optimum ventilation.
Be Visible Be Safe: Be safe under low visibility conditions! Wearing Northwave’s high visibility apparel is a smart and wise choice whether you move in the chaotic city traffic or in the low light extra-urban roads. This way, auto and truck drivers can easily recognise the cyclist’s presence and maintain the right safety distance. Northwave’s high visibility line stands as the perfect recipe to get the ideal mix between road safety and a catchy item.
Northwave Acqua Pro Rainshield Jacket Materials:
100% polyester tricot with internal breathable membrane.

Rated 1 out of 5 by manpeach For what it was designed for the jacket is a failure.
Bought this jacket for commuting from work, just incase it rained and so that I don't have to pack my bulkier gortex rain jacket. The first time I wore it in a light shower, water was soaking through the arms within 10 - 15 minutes. For what it was designed for the jacket is a failure. Otherwise the jacket fit perfectly for me as per the sizing and it looks great.
