Your teddy bear rain slicker was cute when you were a kid, but as a big bad grownup, it's time to start dressing the part. But as we all know, this is easier said than done when you're always riding from A to B. Even worse, as a woman, you're thrown right in the middle of a boiling pot of bad, disingenuous designs. Luckily, Chrome has heard your cries, and the Storm Pasha Women's Jacket is its response. By combining an anatomic, cycling-specific cut with fully waterproof construction, the Storm Pasha fits like a dry glove in a world of wetness.
A touch of wizardry must have been involved in the design process for the Storm Pasha jacket. Somehow, the cut is cycling-specific, yet the appearance says picnic in the park. To achieve this, the sleeves and rear hem were lengthened a bit to keep you covered when you're stretched out in the saddle. The rear of the jacket also has a pass-through cargo pocket that makes grabbing your phone or keys a cinch while you're on the move.
For the all-conditions functionality of the Storm Pasha, Chrome went all out to keep you covered and dry. First off, the jacket is made from a waterproof Tactel Nylon fabric, and to cover all of the bases, Chrome also fully taped the seams of the Pasha. In fact, even the front zipper has a waterproof backing. The collar has been cut high, and the hood is constructed from three panels to minimize the effects of wind. And while this keeps water from getting in, Chrome also took steps to ensure that any buildup of moisture can get out. Not only does the jacket have a two-way zipper for ventilation, but there are also dual armpit zips to keep the air flowing through.
Chrome has also added reflective accents throughout the jacket to increase your visibility in low-light conditions.
The Chrome Storm Pasha Women's Jacket is available in four sizes from Small to X-Large and in the colors Black and Olive.
