The top 11 best women’s waterproof mountain bike jackets

In this article I’m going to give you the best women’s waterproof mountain bike jackets.

There are a lot of waterproof jackets in the market, but for mountain biking you want a cycling jacket with a relaxed fit, and possibly a helmet-compatible hood.

Furthermore mountaike bike jackets need to have long sleeve to enable you to freedom of movement for trail riding.

Protection against the elements comes in the form of water-repellant fabrics, with breathable layers underneath for appropriate heat management.

Water-resistant zippered pockets to stow valuable items is also a big plus. And last but not least a design that looks as good on the bike as of the bike.

So with that out of the way, here are my top picks for the women’s waterproof mountain bike jackets.
