This is a fabulous jacket for a whole range of off-season conditions. Made from Campag’s Thermo Textran fabric, it’s windproof, warm enough for even the coldest rides and very stretchy in all directions, so you get a body-hugging ﬁt without any tightness.
It’s also surprisingly waterproof – rain can seep in through the seams but it has to be very wet before anything gets through the fabric itself.
You get a tonne of breathability to stop things getting uncomfortable when you work up a sweat, while zipped vents on either side of the chest help out the front zip when you want extra cooling.
The close-ﬁtting neck has a ﬂeecy inner face and a chin guard for plenty of comfort, while the stretchy hem and cuffs stop cold air slinking in uninvited.
Whopping great reﬂective logos on the back and arms can’t be missed when you’re riding at night and the zipped rear pocket is a handy ﬁnishing touch. We love it.
