We'll go ahead and admit that we're perhaps a little bit overly picky about our riding gear when temperatures start dropping and storms begin to brew. But we don't see the shame in it, because asserting your needs is the only sure-fire way to have them met, and finding a jacket that enables us to maintain comfort and confidence to head out when the conditions are inhospitable is key to us committing to our base miles throughout the frosty months. Insisting we wanted something with a tailored fit, light weight, and elemental protection from a jacket that's a bit burlier than the NS Air 20, but still packable, Giordana offered us the NS Air 60 Jacket for men. A light jacket that performs with power and flexibility, and cuts through wind and resists water so we can get in our interval training in late fall and early spring with comfort. Best suited for riders who live in 4-season climates, the NS-Air 60 provides more protection than the ultra-lightweight NS-Air 20, allowing you to retain a bit more warmth inside, but is lighter and less water resistant than the nearly impermeable NS-Storm Rain Jacket. The happy-medium between the two, the NS-Air 60 packs down smaller than the Storm, and a touch larger than the 20, but offers water protection that the 20 lacks. If you're riding in true monsoon conditions, it won't seal out every water drop, since it lacks the sealed seams of the Storm, but it will provide you with some shelter from inclement weather. As we've come to expect from Giordana, the NS Air 60 fits slim, tailored, and streamlined for less drag and a more comfortable fit on the bike. Admittedly, it's not quite as snug fitting as Giordana's summer gear, since it's best used with a layer underneath, but it still features cycling-specific designs that reduce excess fabric that catches in the wind and whips behind you. The front is cut higher than some cycling jackets, which may seem a bit too short when standing straight, but ultimately the jacket wasn't built...

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
