45NRTH has been on a mission to keep you cycling during even the coldest months of the year. Choosing the right clothing is key to staying comfortable, sure those giant puffy down jackets keep you warm while you are waiting for your car to warm up or sitting in a stadium but will make you over heat once you get warmed up out on the bike. The 45NRTH Naughtvind Shell Jacket has been designed with cycling in mind.
Made from Schoeller soft shell materialthe 45NRTH Naughtvind Shell Jacket stretches to provide restriction free movement, but unlike other materials that loose their effectiveness when stretched the Schoeller soft shell material maintains its wind and water blocking properties.
Perspiration is your bodies natural way to cool itself off, which is fine if it is 80 degrees outside, not so much at 15. The Scholler soft-shell material is breathable to help wick moisture away, but even the best fabrics have a hard time keeping up with really intense rides, so the Naughtvind features venting under each arm and along the back to help expel excess body heat.
The Naughtvind Shell Jacket features an asymmetric zipper and special collar shape. The asymmetric zipper prevents chin rub and is easier to unzip one handed while on the bike. The collar shape provides good neck protection and offers the option of providing additional face protection when in the riding position.
To help carry all of your stuff the Naughtvind Shell Jacket has 3 oversized rear pockets and a front Napoleon pocket that are positioned to not interfere with hydration packs and backpacks.

The 45NRTH Naughtvind Winter Shell is missing from the Utah retailers inventory. In Park City we ride year round in mostly good weather, but temps can drop. I ride road & mtn & some snow biking. I'd been searching for a winter jacket mostly for road riding due to higher wind issues, one that had a little volume for layering, but not so much that it would flap. I was skeptical about this jacket - the neck looked really big, and fit looked a little sloppy. At 6'1", 180 lbs, & wearing 35" dress shirt sleeves I found the Medium a perfect fit. Later I found that my local Park City shop has declared this their Shop Jacket & commute every day w/ it. Only recommend is for larger & lower center rear pocket.
