Women’s Polaris Expedlite review

Just when you think you've uncovered all the features of the Expedlite, you'll find another. If it's not the adjustable hood neatly packed up in the fleece-lined collar, it'll be the zipped armpit ventilation or the roomy internal zipped pocket.

Just when you think you’ve uncovered all the features of the Expedlite, you’ll find another. If it’s not the adjustable hood neatly packed up in the fleece-lined collar, it’ll be the zipped armpit ventilation or the roomy internal zipped pocket.

This jacket has everything the commuter or recreational cyclist could want: adjustable cuffs with lycra storm seals, twin-flap storm protection on the front zip, two zipped front pockets, a good-sized rear pocket, full mesh lining and reflective piping and panelling in all the right places. The Hydrovent2 material has a shiny finish giving it a slightly shell-suit feel and the jacket has a rather bulky, unflattering cut, but what it loses in fashion points it more than makes up for by being so resolutely waterproof, windproof, durable and breathable.
