Top Gear – New Products – Ground Effect Flash Gordon

Some items are so good that they rarely need an overhaul, just a small tweak every now and then. The Flash Gordon jacket from Kiwi company Ground Effect is one of these. A mainstay of their range, it has changed little in past years with the exception that you are now able to remove the sleeves to convert it into a gilet.

Made from waterproof yet breathable Hydrofoil material the Flash Gordon will handle most downpours. When you’re not wearing the jacket it packs down into its pocket. It has a zippered rear pocket, thumb loops, reflective piping and a long rear hem to keep the rain off your bum. And, it’s made in New Zealand.

Price: $189
