Adidas Trail CP Storm review£104.95

This waterproof features an elastic shoulder panel for stretch fit while the back panel is pleated to expand over back packs. Wearing it over a bag improves the average breathability slightly as the back yoke flap still works.

BikeRadar score3.5/5

This waterproof features an elastic shoulder panel for stretch fit while the back panel is pleated to expand over back packs.

Wearing it over a bag improves the average breathability slightly as the back yoke flap still works (although you lose the shirt-to-shell direct wicking effect). The jacket is cut large so we'd advise trying a size down for a snug seal at neck and wrists.

The diagonal asymmetric zip is smooth in use, even when filthy, and the mesh neck and one-handed hem drawstring stop draughts. The chest logo hides a port for a drink pipe and there's a zipped pocket on the other side for keys, etc. Weight is impressive at 248g but you've got to really like the bag features and brand for the price.

Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
