Endura Flyte waterproof jacket review£99.99

Good value and feature-packed

BikeRadar score4.5/5

Endura's medium weight, feature packed Flyte proved an excellent choice for cold, wet days, with its PTFE protected material combining excellent waterproofing – even under high pressure – with good breathability. The zip is protected by a wide Velcro-secured outer flap, while the front and large rear pocket have waterproof zips.

The cut makes for very comfortable cycling, helped by the use of more stretchy material in the shoulders. The cuffs, hem and fleece collar are adjustable for maximum snugness and dryness, and the final touch is a glasses wipe stitched in the front pocket. Neat.

Simon has been cycling for as long as he can remember, and more seriously since his time at university in the Dark Ages (the 1980s). This has taken in time trialling, duathlon and triathlon and he has toured extensively in Asia and Australasia, including riding solo 2900km from Cairns to Melbourne. He now mainly rides as a long-distance commuter and leisure/fitness rider. He has been testing bikes and working for Cycling Plus in various capacities for nearly 20 years.
