Lusso HT60 review£59.99

Lusso's HT50 has now been replaced by the high performance HT60. The new material is softer and a claimed 30 per cent more breathable. It's still crumply when new, but the full mesh liner adds comfort and improves wicking.

Lusso's HT50 has now been replaced by the high performance HT60. The new material is softer and a claimed 30 per cent more breathable. It's still crumply when new, but the full mesh liner adds comfort and improves wicking. The jacket's better suited to steady cruises than steamy sprints as the pit zips are small. We haven't felt a drop of rain, even in storm conditions, and the tall fleece collar, dropped tail (both with one hand drawcords) and long velcro-cuffed arms offer good protection. You get a chest MP3 pocket, big back pocket, reflective detail and a hang tab for an LED light. Fabric durability is OK but bulk and weight (650g) are high.

Freelance Writer, UK
Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
