Sweet Protection Delirious jacket - in brief review£239.99

Light in weight, heavy on quality

BikeRadar score4/5

The Delirious from Sweet Protection is a lightweight, packable jacket. But though it’s minimal in terms of features, it doesn’t feel like it’s skimped on cut in order to make the grade.

An easy fit enables insulation to be added as needed, and while it rules out a skinny, race-ready profile, the combination of a more relaxed cut and the lightweight ripstop fabric means it delivers a better level of performance in more regular styling.

Not that it ignores bike style – a dropped tail and long zip-pulls are the details that matter, and crucially waterproofing comes courtesy of Gore-Tex Active, which provides outstanding breathability. It’s not a cheap jacket but you won’t need a separate windproof, it packs down and is wearable for other outdoor fun.
