Santini Guard jacket £139.99

Windproof and water-resistant layer

BikeRadar score4/5

The soft, stretchy and very comfortable Guard is one of the best high-performance jackets around. 

Designed in conjunction with team Orica-GreenEdge, it has a close, race-fit cut – if you prefer your jackets roomy then you’ll need to go up at least one size. 

The fabric is highly weather-resistant and windproof, with full thermo welded seams and a full waterproof zip. It uses a silver breathable membrane to keep you comfortable when you’re working hard. 

On the back are double pockets – with zips and a flap-over cover. It’s just a shame it lacks reflectives and is only available in black.
