Just when you think you've uncovered all the features of the Expedlite, you'll find another. If it's not the adjustable hood neatly packed up in the fleece-lined collar, it'll be the zipped armpit ventilation or the roomy internal zipped pocket.

This jacket has everything the commuter or recreational cyclist could want: adjustable cuffs with lycra storm seals, twin-flap storm protection on the front zip, two zipped front pockets, a good-sized rear pocket, full mesh lining and reflective piping and panelling in all the right places. The Hydrovent2 material has a shiny finish giving it a slightly shell-suit feel and the jacket has a rather bulky, unflattering cut, but what it loses in fashion points it more than makes up for by being so resolutely waterproof, windproof, durable and breathable.
