Pinkbike’s Ridden & Rated Rain Shells – Leatt DBX 5.0
“There is an innovative adjustable and magnetic hood designed to stay in place over both full-face and trail helmets.”
Pinkbike tested and compiled a list of their favorite MTB rain jackets, including our Leatt DBX 5.0 jacket.
“Leatt’s DBX 5.0 jacket is, like the MT500, a full-featured riding shell. It is a 3-layer taped shell that is waterproof but also breathes well. There is an innovative adjustable and magnetic hood designed to stay in place over both full face and trail helmets. There are vents in the front pockets and an additional vent on the back of the jacket. The material is soft and comfortable when wearing the jacket. The shoulders have added grip to keep backpacks in place and there is a spot for a lift pass in the left sleeve. Inside the back of the jacket, on the bottom, is a rubberized grip to keep the jacket in place when you’re seated on the bike that functions as advertised. This jacket is slightly more bulky than the Endura, but still rolls down small enough to stow in a backpack.”
