Over the years Endura has become synonymous with durable clothing meant to protect riders from the Scottish climate that came in black. Most of that is still true – the only difference is you can now get much of the line in bright colors. In addition to the classic black, of course.

As I’ve said before, a quality rain jacket is something that can be difficult to purchase due to the sticker shock, but once you’ve laid down the cash, you’ll wonder why you didn’t buy one sooner. Fortunately, options like the Endura Singletrack jacket make it so you don’t have to spend $500 to get something that will keep you dry…

The perfect rain jacket is in a constant battle between breathability and waterproofing. To manage this balance, Endura uses a completely seam sealed 2.5 layer waterproof fabric with a waterproof and breathability rating of 10,000 mm. That puts it right in the middle of the typical scale. To add to the weatherproofing, the jacket uses waterproof zippers throughout.

Features throughout the jacket include a roll away hood, pit zip vents, and a sealed Napoleon chest pocket with an internal media port. Of course there are standard hand warmer pockets and reflective trim throughout.

Available in Men’s S-XXL in black, blue, and red and Women’s in XS-XL in red and purple, both for $169.99. Available now.

I’ve had my 02 Rainwear jacket for about five years, and it has held up amazingly! Love it! For some of the fancy features, this looks like the bees knees, but 02’s stuff still comes in a bit cheaper!

@Adam, that is the Endura Singletrack helmet

It is a great bonus it has a roll away hood. The quality is really good, riding with Endura for a couple of years now and I am really impressed by the quality.

I had the Singletrack jacket on my shortlist, together with the Endura MT500 II jacket. After trying them both I have chosen for the little heavier MT500 II jacket. Why? The is MT500 II is, in my opinion, more versatile in comparing with the Singletrack jacket. And it had a better fit for me. Besides that it is more waterproof, I believe a rating of 25,000 mm. The MT500 is only available in black with yellow zippers and in flashy yellow with green and black zippers. Only downside is the price for the MT500 II, it is more expensive in comparison with the Singletrack.

@Adam Not sure man, but that apparent angle mid way back on that helmet reminded me a lot of a Scott road helmet from a couple years ago.
