The Sugoi RSX NeoShell jacket is made from Polartec NeoShell, a fabric that's designed for better breathability in all conditions - and this is one very comfortable jacket. We deliberately made this our pick for an especially warm but rainy day, and we were impressed with its efficiency.
The styling is also good; mountain bike roomy but with enough shape to avoid being, well, shapeless.
Details such as the way the collar fixes after removing the hood, the fleece-lined collar and generous reflective trim are marks of quality in themselves but it is the construction that sets this jacket apart.
The standard is very high and, combined with the high-performance fabric and well thought-out specification, it reassures you that although this jacket is definitely an investment, you can see exactly where your money has gone.
