When a product is described as 'multi-activity' it can often sometimes mean it's not ideal for bike use, but the Keela Lynx Softshell jacket has certainly proved to be an exception to this rule.

Where the obvious bonus of a two (or more)-for-one jacket normally ends up as a jack of all trades and a master of none, the Keela manages to deliver in spades. And since the temperature has dropped, the Lynx has quickly become one of our go to choices.

Keela's four-way Stretch-Tec fabric ensures a good fit without feeling restricted, while the raglan sleeves ensures it's comfy when you're wearing a pack. When things get hot, huge pit-vents allow you to dump heat quickly and make a big difference to your comfort.

The double zip on the large front pockets is a nice touch and allows you to access above and below your pack's hip strap. Throw in effective wind resistance, water repellency, and a competitive price and the Lynx is hard not to like.
