This jacket goes to eleven. No, really. If you’re looking for a winter riding jacket that’s packed with features and as waterproof as the day is long, take a gander at Endura’s MT500 jacket.
The MT500 jacket is made for all day wet winter riding, with enough breathability and venting options to keep you feeling fresh. Endura used ExoShell60 fabric, an ultra-fine membrane protected by denier tricot laminate. Not only is it 1000% waterproof, but it’s breathable as well, letting you waft your musk to the rider behind you. Combine seam-sealed construction with a water-repellent zipper covered by a storm flap, and the only moisture penetrating this jacket is the shaken up trail beverage your buddy spills on you.
When you work up a sweat and need some extra airflow, the two front pockets double as vents, and there is a large vent under each arm that extends onto the back. The underarm vents feature two-way zippers to get the gusts going right where you need them.
The hood is designed to fit over a helmet, and when you don’t need it, it rolls up and snaps securely into place. Trying to access jacket pockets and accessories can sometimes be a hassle when wearing a pack, but don’t fret! Endura designed around this. The pockets are easy to access, and the underarm vents can still be easily adjusted without taking off your pack. The shoulders are even made doubly durable with added silicone grips, so your pack straps don’t slide around, even if your tires are slippy slidey on the trail.
For hitting rainy park laps, there is a sleeve pocket for lift tickets, and a hidden internal pocket for those pesky valuables. Endura really capitalized on the buzzwords with this product, as there are ergonomically positioned stretch panels, individually adjustable cuffs and hem, and reflective trim on the hood, cuffs, and rear tail. Some might call it Synergy. We call it necessary.
Can this jacket have any more features? The answer is none, none more features. Get out and ride.
