Fiddly left-hand zip spoils this lightweight windproof
Skip to view product specifications

At 107g (medium), including its stuff sack, the Oxylite windproof weighs the same as an average gilet and packs down just as small.


It’s a just-in-case jacket, made of lightweight rip-stop nylon which keeps the wind off effectively, though shower resistance is so-so.

Mesh side panels aid breathability, and there’s a draw-corded hem, dropped tail, thumb loops and a full-length zip with storm flap.


It’s a pity, for the 90 percent of the population who’ll fumble it, that the zip is left-handed. The cut is rather loose for cycling so we’d recommend going down a size. It’s available in ice white or pewter, and sizes S-XXL.
