This top comes with Santini’s typically slim and anatomical fit, with the XL equivalent to a large elsewhere. The internal seams are effectively taped, and it also comes with a welcome full-length waterproof zip with large gripper – resulting in excellent waterproofing.
It weighs just 300g, can just about be squeezed into a rear pocket and has two rear pockets itself, one with a waterproof zip. The cuffs are elasticated and have Velcro for further security, with the hem also elasticated.
The Rain Jacket offers a good balance of water- and windproofing, and decent breathability too. But a black jacket needs more reflective detailing to be usable year-round.
