Adaptation is the ability to change or adjust to the environment. The Craft Adapt Storm Jacket is be definition then able to adjust. Jackets with zip-off sleeves are often referred to as convertible, which is apt as well. This anatomically cut piece has zip-off sleeves that expose a full vest, but the zippers are placed in a fashion so as not to compromise comfort and fit. The Adapt Storm features VentAir(TM) fabric, which is a very supple, wind blocking material that also effectively releases moisture from within. The cut is active and the material stretches for a streamlined fit that won't billow in the wind as a jacket or a vest.
The details are well thought out and executed. The cycling cut is longer in the back, shorter in the front. A full length zipper has an internal draft flap and a zipper garage on the high collar. The soft elastic wrists are comfortable, but also hold the the sleeves in place, while the rear hem employs elastic with a silicone gripper for optimal hold. The rear pocket structure is inspired. A central zippered security pocket is flanked on both sides by more traditional stretch pockets that are plenty deep and generous for food, the sleeves, or other accessories. 360° reflective highlights and details provide excellent visibility as both a jacket and a vest.
The adaptation between the two garments is achieved with easy to use zippers that are placed so that they won't rub or cause chafing, and are even backpack friendly for commuters. In fact commuters and sport-intermediate riders will find the features and protection level of the Adapt Storm Jacket to be optimal for daily use, as will minimalists who prefer to limit the sheer volume of cycling clothing required. No matter who wears it or why, all cyclists can appreciate and enjoy the protection and versatility of the piece.
