Miles covered/time: 2000/ four months
What’s good: The best thing about this bike jacket is that it doesn’t look like a bike jacket – so much so that you could easily wear it off the bike. The fleece-effect (no sheep were harmed in the making of this jacket) lining is very warm and comfortable and so far it’s proved to be waterproof, although as luck would have it I haven’t tested it in a heavy downpour. Plus there’s removable CE armour on the shoulders and elbows. For the price it’s a very stylish, functional winter city jacket.
What’s not: The cuffs are quite wide, so much so that I find it hard to get winter gloves on over the top properly and form a good windproof seal.
