Riding in Utah has taught us that the weather can change in a moment's notice, so with that in mind, it's never a bad idea to bring a lightweight shell on a ride, especially when it's as lightweight, affordable, and packable as the UMA GT Wind Jacket Summer. It features a cut that's specific to the female cyclist, and pared-down for the protection you need, fitting easily into your jersey pocket. Up front, its ripstop LFoil Ultra textile provides protection from the wind and keeps rain and precipitation from hampering your ride while the side panels use its warp knit Glossy textile for breathability and a high level of stretch, ensuring a comfortable reach to the bars and the cycling-specific coverage you need, when you need it most. The whole lot is treated with DWR (Durable Water Repellency) to keep the material from wetting out in the rain. Its dual-layer collar offers comfort and protection while the raglan sleeves are optimized for a forward facing position and lowering the drag. Cut in its body mapped, women's Long Distance fit, it offers plenty of room and is easy to put over existing base layers and jerseys but still gives a nod to aerodynamics while packing the ideal blend of protection without bulk. If you need to adjust the amount of airflow, a full-length Camlock zipper up front lets you easily adjust it to the conditions while its Stretch net back offers impressive ventilation, preventing you from overheating. One last little detail that you never really appreciate until you experience it is the beauty of its rustle-free fabric and Assos designed this jacket to be as quiet as possible.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
