Why We Chose The Revolution Race Cyclone Rescue Jacket 2.0: Multi-functional, waterproof, durable
Revolution Race champion the Cyclone Rescue Jacket 2.0 as the obvious choice for year-round use in the mountains and it’s hard to disagree. The brand’s mission – to make multi-purpose, high-quality outdoor wear at affordable prices – is woven into its DNA. The Cyclone Rescue Jacket 2.0 is an exhibitionist, with enough tricks up its sleeve to make it a go-to for all manner of outdoor enthusiasts. Probably its most notable trick (which is literally up its sleeve) is the Recco reflector, which aids emergency services, hence the ‘Rescue’ tag in its name
Who Is The Revolution Race Cyclone Rescue Jacket 2.0 For?
This is a waterproof jacket designed with multiple functions in mind. Its hood is helmet compatible, a nod to climbers, mountain bikers, skiers and winter walkers, while the arm features a pocket neatly sized for a ski pass.
However, this isn’t just a jacket for adrenaline junkies; it is just as at home on the hiking trails and will give you year-round protection from wind and rain. Better still, the fabric’s high elastane content gives it a four-way stretch, which gives you superb freedom of movement and comfort – so important considering its potential uses. It is competitively priced and, considering its versatility, makes for a shrewd acquisition.
The Cyclone Rescue Jacket features Revolution Race’s own three-layer Hypershell Pro fabric, treated with a PFC-free DWR to give it its waterproof qualities. Boasting a hydrostatic head rating of 15,000mm, it can fend off a rainstorm just as well as most other jackets in its price range. When compared to the competition, it also holds its own in the breathability stakes, with an impressive MVTR (moisture vapour transmission rate) of 20,000g/m2/24hr.
