Balance on the bike is important. We not talking about not falling over--though that's key, too--but about achieving the perfect balance of weather protection, temperature regulation, and mobility. Louis Garneau's Neoshell Jacket is designed to help you find that elusive equilibrium, with fabric that's equally waterproof and breathable, a cut that's mobile but slim, and details that account for almost every weather contingency. Louis Garneau constructed the Neoshell Jacket from Polartec Neoshell, a softshell fabric that repels water while maintaining excellent breathability, so you stay dry from the inside and outside. LG also incorporates stretchy and waterproof Extenz panels in key places to increase mobility. All the seams are finished with waterproof tape for extra protection, and the front, pockets, and vents are all outfitted with waterproof zippers to ensure complete protection. The zipper is also lined with a lightweight flap to seal out the wind and finished with a soft garage and collar top to prevent chin irritation. Of course, the best fabrics in the world won't be very useful if they haven't been cut correctly. In the best cycling tradition, LG designed the Neoshell with a slim, saddle-friendly fit and a dropped back hem for full coverage when you're bent over the bars. A small band of silicone at the hem prevents it riding up, and articulated elbows and hook-and-loop cuffs allow uninhibited mobility without exposing your wrists to the elements. There are also two front vents to boost cooling, reflective details for increased visibility, and two zippered pockets for safekeeping of cash, cards, and snacks when you're on the road.

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.
