Dri-Tex is tough stuff (although certainly not ‘virtually indestructible’ as Dri-Tex itself claims) but it is interesting to note that Bio-Racer states this is hand wash only with mild soap, whereas Dri-Tex states the material is machine washable.
That aside, this is a well made jacket with plenty of features. The reflective detail would be better as proper piping, rather than the tiny chequered stuff as used, and the zip would be better having a ‘zip garage’ to protect your neck from chafing. On the plus side, though, there is a well thought out map pocket on the chest, a stow-away drop down tail, and long armpit zips. Added to this is a neat roll-up hood that stows in the collar, making this an ideal commute, and walking around, jacket at a good price.
