The body-hugging cut, specially adapted to the position of the sporty road bike or gravel rider, pre-shaped sleeves, two zipped pockets on the back, a zipped chest pocket and underarm zips for optimum climate management add up to a performance that many trade magazines and customers see at the top. The back is cut slightly longer and has a siliconized insert that keeps the jacket where it belongs. Outer and lightly brushed inner material are made from 100% recycled, quick-drying polyester. Reflective elements on the arm and neck and a stretch insert on the fitted arm cuff round out VAUDE's award-winning comfort package. The Posta Softshell Jacket pairs well with the Posta Warm Bib Tights and is bluesign® certified to the highest environmental standard. The VAUDE Green Shape label stands for an environmentally friendly, functional product made from sustainable materials.

An integrated membrane makes this fleece 100% windproof. The sandwich construction consists of a technical outer material and a thermal inner material that are both chosen based on the intended use of the garment. This technology is a great choice for extremely windy weather conditions in high-motion mountain and bike sports.
The fabric's stretch comes from either spandex in the fabric or from the type of knit or weave used for the material. This offers maximum freedom of movement.
This high-performance product includes recycled polyester. Excess materials from polyester production are collected and reintroduced back into the production process. This saves up to 50% in energy and CO2 emissions as well as fossil raw materials without compromising the function of the clothing.
