As you’d expect from a jacket named after Tour de France rider Bobby Julich, the cut of the Bobby J tends towards the roadie, but for fast, streamline XC attacks, the breathable eVent fabric and the minimal, pocket-less design are great.
Free from fiddly detail or huge snag-on-everything velcro patches, the jacket features simply a waterproof zip with draft flap, proper length sleeves, a decently long back and cosy fleece-lined collar, and the pared down style and lightness of the fabric made it barely noticeable on long rides. It’s very light and packable, but we’d like a stash bag.
