The lightest of light rain jackets.

Sometimes in summer all you need is a backup jacket tucked in your jersey pocket for those long descents and unexpected downpours.

Q36.5's R. Shell Protection is an exceptionally low weight/volume long-sleeved rain jacket, designed to be taken with you on every ride without hesitation. Weighing in at just 160 grams, it's almost the same light weight as Q36.5's short-sleeved L1 summer jersey. Quite an achievement for a true waterproof.

The R. Shell Protection is constructed from a proprietary 3-layer fabric:

The outer layer is an extremely compact high-density woven polyamide, while the second layer is a hydrophobic porous membrane with very high-breathability (RET value of 5) and 18.000 mm/l waterproof rating.

This gives the best combination of waterproofing and breathability without the need for additional linings.

A range of technical features lift this above the level of a standard 'packaway'. Q36.5 have looked at every aspect of a traditional rainproof and optimised it for the best performance:

  • The collar area is ergonomically shaped to provide maximum protection against rain and water ingress, with an internal 'barber's' collar.
  • All seams, which might otherwise compromise waterproofing, have been moved to the least exposed part of the vest.
  • Easy access to your jersey pockets below is provided via two subtle slits in the back.
  • The wrist cuffs are elasticated for a snug fit.

The best waterproof is the one you have with you. With the R. Shell there's no need to compromise - it's super light and packs small enough that you need never be without it..
