The Race Elite Raceshell FZ is a lightweight, breathable running jacket with fully waterproof zips and a wired peak hood.
Inov8 says: Super light, breathable, yet fully waterproof. Stay dry, go fast. The Race Elite Raceshell FZ will be ready whatever happens and at 270g you won't know it's there, until you need it.
Insanely soft and stretchy, this full zip waterproof has been designed to protect mountain athletes in harsh conditions, while stretching with the upper body to allow unrestricted movement. It's extremely lightweight and can pack down small into it's own chest pocket. It feels nice against your skin, unlike some other waterproof fabrics and can be strapped tight around your waist using the bungee cord to stop it blowing around when your running in windy conditions.
It has a roll away hood with a wired peak which can be adjusted easily with one hand. It also has lycra bound cuffs with an integrated stretch cuff and thumb holes. This is great for keeping the cold out and prevents the arms of the jacket from ridding up when running. This is a great jacket for running in bad weather, thank to it's high breathability rating and waterproof fabric and zips.
