Two New Waterproof Jackets for Women

Feb. 5 -- Tour Master, maker of exceptional quality textile and leather riding clothing, as well as soft luggage, introduces the Trinity, a lightweight nylon jacket, for 2006.

The Trinity's 400 Denier nylon shell is combined with a Rainguard brand barrier making the jacket waterproof and breathable. The jacket has a lot of rider-friendly features built in like a soft, durable microfiber lining on the collar and cuffs to prevent chafing; a snap on the collar to eliminate flapping while the collar is open; and a two-way main zipper -- it opens at top and bottom. The zipper is also reinforced with a wind flap to seal out the elements. There are zippered chest vents, sleeve vents and rear exit vents for flow-through ventilation.

For protection, the Trinity has removable, CE-approved armor at the elbow and shoulder with an articulated Triple Density back protector. Additional thoughtful features include adjustable sleeve take-up straps at the forearm and bicep to help secure the elbow armor, and adjustable waist belts to help fine-tune the fit for a flattering line. Reflective piping on the sleeve and Tour Master's signature reflective rear triangle increase nighttime visibility. Pockets include a zippered chest map pocket, hand warmer pockets, an internal pouch pocket and mobile media pocket.

The Trinity also includes Tour Master's Z.O.Q. (Zip-Out Quilted) Liner featuring a comfortable iridescent taffeta liner. For attaching to pants, there is a jacket/pant zipper with the pant-side attachment included. The Trinity comes in three colors: light blue, black, and silver, and in sizes XS through XL. Price: $129.99.

Tour Master also introduces the LRX Sport jacket from Cortech, part of its performance oriented line.

The Cortech LRX has many of the same features as the Trinity: soft microfiber lining on the collar and cuffs, the venting, the reinforced zipper, the reflective piping, the armor, the variety of pockets, the waist belt, the pant zipper attachment, and the zip-out liner. The LRX, however, is constructed of 400 Denier Nylon and 1680 Denier Ballistic Polyester for a more performance oriented fit. The shell is combined with a Rainguard waterproof, breathable barrier. The LRX comes in five colors: black, light blue, silver, white, and pink, and in sizes XS through XL. Price: $129.99.
