The Flyte is tailored from Hydrovent water- and windproof material that breathes well and has a mesh lining – which adds weight and bulk – and pit zips to stop it from getting too damp inside when riding hard.
There’s a foldaway hood that has a comfy and warm fleece lining. The large front zip is easy to use with gloves or cold hands, and front and rear baffles take care of sealing duties.
On the rear, a map-sized pocket with Velcro flap stops things getting wet. We like the addition of internal storm cuffs with thumb loop to seal out drafts. The Flyte is a great all-rounder if you’re on a budget and don’t mind the extra bulk.
