elements with a clean, tailored style.Made from a technical 3-layer,
soft-shell stretch fabric that is both waterproof and breathable, the

when things start to get a little toasty, weatherproof pit zip vents
allow you to cool down. Gripper tape around the interior bottom hem and a
slightly elongated tail help keep you covered while leaning forward
over the handlebars. An interior audio valve pocket allows for easy
routing of headphones and a dual-access back pocket offers easy-access
storage while on the move. For riding at night, JRC Reflex reflective
strips have been incorporated into the back of the collar and cuffs with
reflective piping along the back seam. This innovative material
reflects bright white when lit by a pair of headlights, but remains
matte black under normal lighting conditions. All these features are
packed into a lightweight jacket that looks just as sharp off the bike
as it does on it.

AETHER JACKET EMPIRE SHOELLER SHELL / JET BLACK // $450 // BUY NOW
The Empire features a 2-point adjustable hood for when you're off the bike, but when it's time to put the helmet back on, the hood folds neatly and cleanly into the collar. Weatherproof zippers have been used throughout the jacket, with a zipper garage at the neck to prevent a cold zipper from pressing against your neck. Running diagonally across the chest are two zippered vents. While in the riding position, these vents scoop cool air in toward your chest and funnel it out through the breathable side panels. These vents offer a tremendous amount of airflow, especially when used in combination with a half-opened front zipper. At the bottom of these vents, along the same visual line, are concealed, zippered hand-warmer pockets. Within both of these hand-warmers are additional internal pockets, one of which features an audio cord port.
Reflective tape along the back flashes hot white when hit by a pair of headlights. Underneath is a large zippered pocket with three internal pockets for stowing spare tubes, multi-tools, pump, etc. The bottom hem of the Empire has been shaped with an extend tail for extra coverage while leaning forward in the saddle. It can also been cinched down to fit using a concealed drawstring, while gripper tape along the edge helps keep the jacket in place. Combining a modern urban style with a wide array of bike-friendly features, the Empire is a versatile choice for any urban cyclist. Available in store at our Gastown location and online HERE.
