Rhythm Stormshell jacket (13)
True to its description as a ‘comfort fit,’ the Stormshell has plenty of room for layers, comfort and a casual look. The payoff is an excess of fabric around the chest when in the riding position.
There’s a large, helmet-friendly hood, though its usefulness when riding is debatable and it tends to catch the wind and stubbornly refuse to be stowed.
Large meshed vents across the chest and under the arms, sealed by waterproof zips, are effective in releasing condensation and regulating temperature.
