Fox has taken advantage of its own-brand TruSeal technology for weather protection, being 10,000mm waterproof and 10,000g/m2 breathable. However, these aren’t hugely impressive stats if you’re looking for a jacket where you can spend hours in the pouring rain.

The Fox Attack is definitely good enough for showers and short rides, or simply to keep puddle splash and mud spray at bay.
The jacket advertises a ‘rider attack’ position and women’s-specific fit. Though the fit feels no different from other jackets in this category, it does fit well, both on and off the bike.
One thing the Fox Attack has over most other trail jackets, however, is the low-slung back, which offers mud and water-spray protection to the buttocks, and the highly reflective logos on the back will be appreciated if you encounter traffic.
Attack Water jacket in action
The Fox Attack jacket has side-vents under the armpits, but they are small overlapping holes that only open up when you poke a finger through them. I wasn’t confident these would do much for venting, but in practice the jacket was incredibly breathable. At no point did I feel clammy or claustrophobic like I have done in other jackets.
