Showers Pass Transit Jacket CC

Showers Pass

The all new, fully redesigned and improved Transit Jacket is back! A rain jacket is only as good as its waterproof membrane, and thanks to Showers Pass’ proprietary Artex™ waterproof-breathable membrane (coupled with fully taped seams), the Transit provides an effective barrier from the elements. Even when temperatures rise, the Artex™ membrane allows body heat to ventilate freely, while the membrane remains impermeable to exterior moisture. And to ensure performance and comfort, while avoiding the dreaded “clammy” jacket, the Transit features brushed interior fabric for soft-to-the-touch feel. For greater temperature regulation, a large rear vent and strategically positioned core vents with waterproof zippers make it easy to cool down when you begin to heat up.

To deliver on our sustainable goals, we are proud to mention that the Transit CC jacket features Clean Color Technology using Bluesign System approved dyes, which keep harmful chemicals out of the manufacturing process, protecting people and the planet.

  • Clean Color dyed Artex™ ripstop fabric
  • Brushed finish on the interior lining - soft to the touch with thermal properties

Goretex works; I'm still amazed


Reviewed By: CT Lin on 7/1/22

Went for a 2 hour ride in a downpour near Moscow ID. I'm used to getting drenched on the bike with my wind shell and cycling clothes. This time, with my new rain jacket, I stayed rain-free (did not buy the hood and did not need it), and yet felt like the cloth breathed away much of my sweat. Did not get chilled, felt really comfortable. Bought a small, on the advice the the sizes range on the larger size, that was perfect for me. I'm really happy with my purchase.

Way big - had to return


Reviewed By: Antonio on 12/2/21

I'm usually a medium, but had to return same, as it was *way* too big. I tried to follow the sizing advice given in the guide, but the waist measurement was way out of line with the chest measurement. Which one to go by? We want shells to accommodate other clothing underneath, and this is always a challenge with cycling gear, as getting something to big acts like a kite. This was more like a parachute. The quality seemed excellent, and I look forward to trying another one, as many reviews have said they have excellent breath-ability.

Used Repeatedly

This spring in Pennsylvania has been cold and wet and this jacket has effectively blocked the cold wind, rain, and occasional snow shower. After arriving home after a wet ride, my road bike had covered me with fine grit laid down by the highway department in icy conditions. I decided to wash and test the jacket by simply getting into the shower with it. After about 30 minutes in a warm shower, I was still dry, and the jacket looked like new.

It's all about the gear


Reviewed By: Adam on 12/9/18

In upstate NY there is no shortage of "weather" - rain, snow, fog - and it seems awfully dark half of the year. My new Transit jacket is a pleasure to put on in all of the above conditions. As a previous post indicates, trust the sizing guidance as the jacket has a generous cut (or maybe I run small.) Add the hood to complete the package.

Best cycle-related purchase in a long time


Reviewed By: Carl_in_Richland on 12/9/17

I'm always nervous about purchasing clothes via e-mail but the sizing guidance for this jacket were spot on. Trust it! And I'm also always nervous about the first time out with any new bike equipment. But this jacket delivered: it stopped the cold air (weather is overcast with temps are in the upper 20's, lower 30's here in eastern Washington), it had enough ventilation to keep moisture from building up, and a friend commented that it was extremely visible when the headlights from his car hit the back of the jacket. I've ridden with it in a light drizzle and had no problems in staying dry from the precipitation. Glad I bought it and see many years of good use coming down the road. I'd recommend it to other serious cyclists. It's pricey, but worth the cost.
