The Little Crossover Rain Jacket supports the Bicycle Transportation Alliance and Safe Routes to School.
Showers Pass, a company dedicated to developing clothing and gear that gets more people out on their bikes (no matter the weather), has just introduced rain jackets for children. The company will be donating 7% of sales to the Bicycle Transportation Alliance‘s work with Safe Routes to School.
Showers Pass has been a longtime supporter of BTA and its Safe Routes to School partner. The BTA works to make their programs the best in the country with comprehensive safety training for students, teachers, and families, finding a natural ally in Safe Routes to Schools.
The Showers Pass line for children brings the quality and safety features from their adult line to the children’s jackets. It is their mission to normalize cycling as a safe form of transportation.
The Little Crossover Rain Jacket is designed to keep children comfortable, dry, and visible. It is made from ArtexTM Hardshell 2.5-layer waterproof-breathable fabric with fully taped seams. It is lightweight but leaves room for layering in colder weather, and features 360o of 3M reflective trim so that the jacket is visible to motorists from all angles in low light conditions.
Also included in the features of the jacket are elastic sides to help the hood remain in place, an adjustable draw cord at the hem with a bike-friendly dropped tail, adjustable Velcro cuffs, and two hand warmer pockets. The children’s Little Crossover Rain Jacket is available in Fuchsia, Powder Blue, Rust, and Chili Pepper Red. It comes in sizes XS-LG to fit children age’s four to eleven and has a retail price of $69.
With proceeds from the sales of these new children’s cycling jackets going towards supporting the BTA and Safe Routes to School, Showers Pass is setting up a generation of young people to enjoy cycling and see it as a safe and sustainable way to meet their daily transportation needs. Kids are our future, let’s get them biking!
