Assos - EQUIPE RS Men's Winter Jacket JOHDAH - Black Series -App
A high-tech jacket that wards off all weathers and protects you like a second skin
This storm-proof jacket is claimed by ASSOS to be the most technical, low-volume winter softshell it has so far created.
The johDah jacket comes into its own when it's needed to provide a never before experienced level of second-skin protection and temperature regulation.
It gives you unmatched upper body protection during all your high-output efforts in the harshest conditions. It’s specifically engineered for the serious year-round rider and pro athlete, as the textiles developed for this system are 'activated' the higher you push your efforts.
If you hit the trigger level, you’ll be rewarded with a winter-proof second skin that breathes and flexes with your body, feeding it just the right amount of insulation to perfectly regulate your core temperature during cold races and long training rides.
Project johDah began by developing a totally new line of softshells, each of which is lighter and more breathable than anything ASSOS' developers have produced before.
Known as SPHERE, this family of fabrics is made into varying thicknesses of membrane-equipped materials which give you waterproof protection and flexible comfort. Starting from the inside out, the front panel is made up of several ultra-thin layers. The first resembles a short, zipped mid layer, which protects your chest with targeted insulation.
Laid over this is ASSOS' 3L wind- and waterproof SPHERE Light textile, which features a light thermal interior. To prevent you from overheating, the shoulders are fitted with diffuser valves, which act like a set of air vents that draw in air from the outside and inject it between the jacket’s layers of fabric.
Over your upper back and forearms ASSOS has placed its robust 3L SPHERE Medium, which features a thicker, more insulating fabric on the inside. The lower back panel is made using another new fabric development, OSMOS Heavy. the most insulating of ASSOS' armoury of brushed-back materials. Also, the jacket’s integrated face mask and built-in mid layer use the lighter, more breathable OSMOS Light. Finally, the upper arms are made from a plush and insulating warp-knit 3L ZigZaggy Foam.
The johDah is one part of a three-piece system. You can wear it alone during most winter conditions, or pair it with a Thermobooster Mid Layer for added insulation. For extra coverage in humid or extra-demanding weather, you could put your Alleycat Clima Capsule over the top. Either of these extra layers conveniently stow in the johDah’s Thermobooster Pod along the upper back panel. Yes, we’ve thought of everything.
SPHERE Light: Used for the front panel, this middle-weight version of SPHERE is a patented 3L windproof, waterproof, and highly breathable woven softshell constructed with a PU bonded membrane for added water-repellent properties.
Tibet knit inner layer: The innermost layer in SPHERE Light, this bi-stretch circular knit adds light insulation and helps pull moisture away from the layers below.
SPHERE Medium: Used for the upper back and forearms, this is our thickest version of SPHERE. It’s a patented 3L windproof and highly breathable woven softshell constructed with a PU bonded membrane for added water-repellent properties.
Rhombus pattern insulating layer: The innermost layer in SPHERE Medium, this polypropylene terry with smooth jacquard features a 3D diamond net construction to promote airflow, wick moisture, and add an extra layer of insulation along the upper back and forearms.
ZigZaggy Foam: The upper sleeves are made with this 3L warp-knit, windblocking fabric, which features a foam-like core and brushed fleece interior for added thermal protection.
OSMOS Heavy: This warp-knit is used along the back panel. It’s the heaviest in our brushed OSMOS family (290g/m2), featuring asymmetrical stretch and a soft, durable construction. High levels of insulation are derived from the brushed skin-facing side.
Integrated Face Mask: Stowable neck and face protection in OSMOS Light for the most extreme winter riding conditions.
Diffusor: An ASSOS-exclusive sewing construction that creates dual “valves” on the fronts of the shoulders, drawing in cool air for added ventilation.
Double-Slider Asymmetrical Zip: Reversed camlock design, metal construction, offset at the collar for added comfort.
Thermobooster Pod: Fourth pocket along the central back panel, engineered to store the Thermobooster Mid Layer or Alleycat Clima Capsule.
Triple Ramp Pockets: ASSOS' own storage design with three textile-lidded pockets optimally located for ease of access; colour-coded and featuring a micro-perforated bonded tape for visibility.
Raw-Cut Waist: Creates a smooth, aerodynamic design that seamlessly integrates with your additional layers.
Bi-Modular Rear Hem: A wide, bi-modular elastic flexes more along the side than in the middle to give you a secure, “tuned” hold.
aeroFit: Our trimmest, speed-focused fit that’s tighter and more compressive than our racingFit. May feel restrictive out of the riding position but feels like a second skin while riding.
Composition: 38% Polyamide, 24% Polypropylene, 20% Elastane, 18% Polyester

Winter jacket I’ve never had. It’s really warm through a range of temperatures. The best feature is that you don’t sweat, due to vents in the front. At the same time it keeps the wind out. It’s very expensive, but all Assos products are, but last forever.
