If you buy one of these, make sure it feels very snug on you because that's the whole point of the De Marchi Contour Pro jacket. The front and arms are made from Zero-Wind windproof material, and the rest is made from stretchy and warm Roubaix Plus.
Initially we were thinking this would be a jacket to wear with a good base or mid layer. But in reality this thing is way too warm for the autumn weather - it's ideally suited to those bitterly cold dry winter days. Four open rear pockets are easy to access, with an additional zipped pocket at the back too. And a rubbery gripper at the hem prevents it from riding up your back.
