Showers Pass Portland Jacket = Love



For about 2 weeks now I have been "testing" the Portland jacket from our old friends at Showers Pass. I have worn the Portland everyday for the last 2 weeks! I love this jacket! Not only does it function well as a cycling jacket but it also looks great at the office, or anywhere around town. It's not a neon green cycling jacket that screams I am a geek, I ride a bike (perhaps, I have some issues.)

It looks great too!
During my "testing" of the Portland jacket not a day goes by without a compliment on the great looking jacket I'm wearing. Many people don't even know it's a fully functional cycling jacket. Even the reflective piping on the jacket is subtle. (see the video below for more details on the reflective properties of the Portland)



It's Warm and Breathable
I have been wearing my jacket on my commute to work and it does a great job of protecting me from the wind and the rain. So far I haven't gone on longer rides of more than 10 miles. The Portland has a 2 way zipper as well as pit zips for regulating body temperature.


This jacket is perfect for the commuter who wants to look good both on and off the bike.

"Insanely Anatomical"



Sexism in Pearl Izumi's Advertising? Men and women will agree this is a fine example of the female form.

Pearl Izumi wants to be the brand that cyclists think of when they think of high performance, premium cycling clothing with it's new made-in-Italy P.R.O. Octane line. As the ‘Insanely Anatomical’ tagline suggests, the Garmin team-inspired fits are decidedly more oriented towards racers. The garments will include a number of top-end features shared by some of its top competitors.

Shorts will include a brand new preshaped ‘4D Pro’ stretch chamois with fully welded construction, wide leg bands with laser-cut edges, minimal silicone gripper dots, and open mesh upper bib sections. The matching form-fit jersey will use strategically-placed mesh panels, a silicon infused lower hem and asymmetrically cut sleeves for more even coverage on the bike. Meryl microfibers provide UPF50 protection according to Pearl Izumi.

Available in both men's and women's specific pieces BicyclingHub.com is proud to stock this exciting line. Click Here To See BicyclingHub.com's Selection of P.R.O. Octane Apparel

Dave Campbell's Race Trivia- February 2009

Q1. As the Tour of California enters its fourth year, there are two riders who have won stages every year, can you name them?

Q2: This year’s Tour of California is being heralded as the finest field ever assembled in North America (perhaps a stretch with the 1986 Coors Classic and World Championship as well as Tour DuPonts and Trumps also having class fields, but…it is nonetheless STELLAR), but ALREADY reigning World Champions have won stages in previous editions. Can you name those who triumphed in rainbow jersies?

Q3. Who was the first Non-American (yes we have been VERY competitive at our home event) to don the race leaders jersey?
