This top ticks all the feature boxes for all round use, but the fabric offers only similar levels of performance and protection to cheaper offerings. The mesh-lined chest vents/pockets have their work cut out to stop you steaming up when riding hard, and the jacket wets out in heavy rain. The drawstring fleece neck and hem help sealing, while generous zips are easy to haul open for cooling.

The panel cut fit is good on the bike, without looking weird for town, and the reflective trim isn't too glaring. There are two back pockets (although one is a short cut to your jersey pockets). Durability is good and it packs down light (322g) and small.

Freelance Writer, UK
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.
