Mission Workshop Orion $460

Stylish trail jacket

BikeRadar score 4/5

How much?! Yes, really. But we’d sell granny in a heartbeat and want this jacket more than it’s decent to admit.

It’s made from Schoeller four-way stretch fabric, a gold standard among fabrics that not only breathes very well but has the sort of immaculate finish that is usually reserved for a dinner suit. A fairly rugged dinner suit, obviously…

The cut is beyond reproach too, with plenty of room for movement and layering, but managing to look quite at home in the city when you’re not riding. The zips are waterproof on all the pockets and we like the way the back pocket manages to be both sensibly big but discreet.

In performance terms the Orion is right up there, but it’s also so street-sexy we really don’t want to crash in it…
