Christmas gift guide for MTB women
Endura women s singletrack jacket

Endura Women's SingleTrack Jacket

Endura's Singletrack Jacket is a stylish, reasonably priced riding jacket. Lightweight and easy to store in your bag when riding, it would be a good addition to the arsenal and great for most of the year, especially thanks to the vents for when things start getting a little warmer. The pricing is definitely a plus, and for what you're getting features wise (the deep, inner pockets are so useful) it would make a great gift, plus it looks great and the sizing is pretty spot on too.

 I have the men's Endura Single-track jacket. Bought it in September to get ready for the wet season and man I could not be happier. The wife is getting one for Christmas now that I know it's a great jacket.

Headphone slot in chest pocket, big pit zips, roll up hood that also can go over helmet and will actually stay, good butt coverage, keeps the worst of the weather out and breathes well. I have also been very impressed with durability the material. It doesn't look like it's gonna take a good ass kicking but so far its held up to some significant crashes.

The jacket isnt the best budget friendly gift but it's gonna last and keep her dry when you convince her to come ride in the rain haha. I mean shit they own 20 jackets and none are actually functional other than that they "look cute" so why not get her at least one jacket that has other functions other than looking cute haha.

Any bike shops in Canada that do orders through Live To Play (which is most shops) can order Endura stuff in.
