Howies Extra Miler jacket£100.00

BikeRadar score4/5

Born from the ashes of the discontinued 8 Miler jacket - named after its ability to keep you dry for the 8 mile ride home.

The Extra Miler goes, figuratively, the extra mile to give you a bunch of extra features and an improved overall fit. The biggest news is the zip off arms which turns this Schoeller 3Xdry jacket into a gilet. Twin vertical chest pockets also have mesh backs so they can double as vents, with a rear zip top pocket for stowage. We love the matt olive 'jungle' colour, drop tail and slightly shorter front - which helps bike fit without ruining it as a casual jacket. Plus it's got cosy micro-fleece neck liner and reflective piping as, afterall, safety never takes a holiday. But we don't like the cuff end of the sleeves that are just a bit too baggy. Still, it makes a great choice for anyone who knows that bike wear doesn't have to look 'bikey'.
