DHB Signal Jacket

Our review

A robust, fully-featured winter jacket at a bargain price – it’s excellent value for money

DHB’s Signal is made from the same 2.5-layer waterproof and breathable fabric as the company’s cheaper (£40) Minima jacket, but it feels a little heftier. A Teflon surface coating does a great job of beading water off.

Many cycling jackets are road-orientated and have a short front to avoid bunching when you’re leaning forward. Instead, the Signal has a longer-than-usual front for better coverage in a slightly more upright riding position.

Your extra £15 buys you an impressive pile of useful features. An external storm flap Velcros over the zip for added protection, while collar and hem drawcords and Velcro tabs on the sleeves enable you to batten down the hatches if necessary.

The collar is fleece-lined and includes a zip garage. Front side pockets aren’t that useful for riding but help the jacket double up as an off-bike garment more convincingly.

The Signal lives up to its name with a considerable number of reflective graphics. They’re pretty subtle during the day, but under lights in darkness this is a highly visible jacket. A hi-vis yellow version is also available.

We didn’t find the Signal to be the most breathable jacket out there, but long, double-ended pit zips mean you can dump heat quickly as exertion levels rise. All in all, it’s impressive for the money.
