Product Review: Held Ladies Caprino Gore-Tex jacket £449.99
Tester: Alison Silcox
Time tested: Two months/1000 miles
The cut of the jacket is great and the tailored fit with zips at the hip means it fits comfortably over my bum. I’ve been caught in a couple of torrential downpours and it’s fully waterproof. There are some great vents all-round the jacket so wearing it in warmer weather makes it far more comfortable.
The thermal lining is way too bulky and the first job was to remove this and instead wear thinner base layers. For the price it's a shame it doesn’t come with a proper back protector rather than the foam pad. The colour is great when the jacket is first warn but a couple of bug splattered evening rides it soon looked grubby and a little tired.
