Are you looking for a stylish rain suit that won’t let you down on cold days, will reliably get you through the winter season and even let you have fun doing so? Jonas and Felix opted to try the SCOTT Trail Storm WP jacket and pants and take stock after two winters of hard use. SCOTT don’t just build bikes and skis, but also make high-quality accessories and clothing, like the SCOTT Trail Storm WP jacket and pants. The winter weather outfit looks discreet and stylish, though the orange contrast panel on the lower left leg, orange zippers and orange SCOTT logos add some louder detailing. Additional reflective zippers ensure good visibility, while the rest of the design is kept a black/grey marbled tone. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1408638783102-0'); }); The SCOTT Trail Storm WP jacket and pants are constructed of three-layer DRYOsphere 3L fabric, offering a 10,000 mm/gm-2 waterproof/breathability rating. The inside of the numerous pockets should also stay dry thanks to taped seams and waterproof zippers, while openings at the armpits and thighs offer added ventilation. The zippers can be pushed or pulled open and gave us no trouble, still working as well after months of abuse as they did on the first day. We also like the two large, differently sized breast pockets on the jacket. Both were big enough for our 5.7” smartphone. However, the pants pocket, while big enough, puts the phone in an uncomfortable position where it presses against your hip. Neither the jacket (443 g in size L) nor the pants (313 g in size L) are ultra-light but nor are they particularly heavy for rainwear. SCOTT have struck a good balance between robustness, durability and weight, focusing more on quality than lightweight construction. Nevertheless, both items are small enough to stuff in a daypack. Slip them on and you’ll notice that the SCOTT Trail Storm WP jacket and pants offer a great fit on the bike. The trail-oriented cut provides enough room for knee pads, back protectors and an additional layer on frigid days. The sleeves and legs are long and the elastic waistband and Velcro closure prevent mud from getting inside. Sections of stretch mesh on the back of the knees ensure good ventilation and a comfortable fit. The hood of the SCOTT Trail Storm WP jacket provides effective protection from the elements and is spacious enough to accommodate large half-shell helmets with ease. An elastic cord allows you to adjust the hood’s size and it doesn’t get pulled off your head by the wind, always staying exactly where you want it – excellent. Two smartphones? No problemWe loved the generous chest pockets. Although the right side pocket is significantly smaller than the left, it was still big enough to fit a 5.7” phone. The pockets are big enough for your mobile phone, keys, and wallet. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1408638783102-1'); }); Made for knee padsThe cut is perfect for knee pads, and stretchy mesh fabric on the backs of the knees not only ensure a good fit but also provides added ventilation. As dry and cosy as a tentThe spacious hood with its generous collar not only accommodates large half-shell helmets but is also easy to adjust with the elastic cord. There is no wind strong enough to pull it off your head. Escape the jungle climateWhen things get steamy inside the suit, ventilation ports under the armpits and on the thighs offer some relief, though the jacket’s breathability was sufficient on cold days. SCOTT’s rain suit offered reliable protection from the elements, regardless of the weather and no matter how long the ride. The jacket survived two winters unscathed, though we can’t say the same about the pants. After occasional contact with the rear tire and from rubbing on the saddle, they allowed water to seep in after some time, eventually wearing through completely. The suit remained comfortable on cold days, though we can’t say the same for warmer weather or when wearing the wrong clothing underneath. The DRYOsphere material isn’t breathable enough when working hard with the ventilation ports providing limited relief. Unfortunately, overall breathability isn’t among the best on the market. If you want to hit the trails in freezing temperatures and snow, we recommend wearing a warm base layer and, if necessary, a long bib underneath. The thin material won’t keep you warm when things get icy. If you’re looking for a rain suit for those wet winter days, the SCOTT Trail Storm WP jacket and pants are a great combo, offering numerous clever features, a good fit and good quality. However, don’t expect the pants to last longer than two winters of intensive use as the backside will become permeable and ultimately wear through. The suit didn’t perform as well on warmer days and you’ll likely need something more breathable for year-round use.

Since day one, E-MOUNTAINBIKE has stood for high-quality journalism, in-depth reviews and inspiring stories. Now we want to take our content to the next level – together with you! But how? From now on you can become an E-MOUNTAINBIKE supporter and back our work with a voluntary monthly contribution. In this article we’ll tell you why this is a great idea and how it will make a difference in our work. “When my brother Max and I founded 41 Publishing with only € 6,000 in startup capital from our grandma back in 2011, the notion that in just ten years, we’d grow into one of the most important bike magazine publishers was a long way from our minds. We might now be a team of 30-plus people rather than a two-man show, and things have definitely changed, but our aims are exactly the same. With you by our side, we want to shape trends, provide inspiration and make sure that all of our readers get the most out of their time on the bike. Day in, day out, this is why we get up each day.” Robin Schmitt, E-MOUNTAINBIKE founder The E-MOUNTAINBIKE founders (from left to right): Robin Schmitt, Max-Philip Schmitt and their daddy Manne Schmitt, who later joined the family business founded by his sons and has been on numerous adventures ever since! From self-made to scene-made Our entire editorial concept comes from our hearts and we determine exactly what goes into our magazines – well, almost all of it! Based on your feedback, fed to us through emails, social media, and our annual reader survey, you’re jointly responsible for steering the E-MOUNTAINBIKE ship and having a say in what topics shape the magazine. Along with thousands of other enthusiastic eMTBers, you’ve become a part of our team. So what about doing even more and embarking on new adventures and projects together? We’re convinced that the supporter model is the logical next step for us to work even closer with our readers and ensure a sustainable future for E-MOUNTAINBIKE. Become an E-MOUNTAINBIKE supporter! Let’s shape the bike scene together and make E-MOUNTAINBIKE(n) even better! Are you with us? Why a supporter model? Despite cycling’s current boom, the landscape for traditional cycling media is caught in a downward spiral. It’s complicated – the temptation for outlets to betray their own values is pretty significant. Sadly, rampant clickbait, regurgitated press releases and sponsored content on behalf of advertisers are becoming the norm, replacing balanced opinion pieces and honest, independent help for your buying decisions. Not only do we want to continue to deliver free high-quality content, but also kick it up a notch! In future, you can expect more tests, more buying advice, more opinions, more inspiring stories and, above all, new exciting projects – you will soon find out more! We are under no illusions about what we need to continue doing: deliver honest and credible reviews that are critical when needed and full of valuable, in-depth knowledge, published with the aim of fostering success for you and the whole scene. The supporter model makes all this possible and helps us remain critical and brutally honest – even if this could potentially lead to ad cancellations. With progressive ideas and a strong vision, we want to move forward and transform the bike boom’s current challenges into opportunities. Let’s keep the wheels in motion towards a sustainable future. Think of purchases you’ve made – has one of our articles inspired you, led you to the right product, or even saved you from making a purchase you regret? If that’s the case, you could secure even more helpful content by supporting our work with a monthly contribution – we’d be extremely grateful! By becoming a supporter of E-MOUNTAINBIKE, you will help secure a sustainable future for high-quality cycling journalism. It’ll be thanks to you that the sport of eMTBing continues to benefit from a free, independent publication. With your commitment, you’ll take on an important role in shaping not only E-MOUNTAINBIKE but the entire (e)MTB scene. Together, we will work on a future in which we can ride our bikes even more, better and more freely. By contributing and becoming an E-MOUNTAINBIKE supporter, you’re making sure that all of our articles remain totally free to read. And that applies to all readers, everywhere, including those who can’t afford a membership. Become an E-MOUNTAINBIKE supporter – it’s easy! To make the process as easy and safe as possible, we teamed up with German service provider Steady. Steady is a membership platform for independent media based in Berlin which works like the American social payment service provider Patreon. How to become an E-MOUNTAINBIKE supporter: from the three options below, choose the package that suits you best. If you don’t have an account with Steady yet, in the next step you’ll be asked to create a profile. Finally, select your payment method – Steady currently supports direct debits, credit cards, Paypal and Apple Pay. INSERT_STEADY_CHECKOUT_HERE We’re looking forward to starting this new exciting chapter and are convinced that together we can shape a sustainable future both for our magazine and the entire scene! If you have any questions or suggestions about our supporter model, please contact us through this page – we’re always happy to hear from you!
