Weise-Tex windproof top, £59.99
Time tested: Three years
What’s good? Under textile jackets, over leathers or even just as a casual jacket, this top is a versatile way of keeping warm. The Weiss-Tex top has been designed as a mid layer, which means that it should be worn over base layers and beneath your outer biking kit and combines stretchy panels of windproof fabric with a soft fleece lining. In the warm and windproofing stakes it definitely does its job, with the high collar helping, too. Beneath leathers and textiles it’s perfectly comfortable and thanks to the elasticated collars and hem it doesn’t ruck up beneath your kit. I also like it because it packs down small enough to stash inside a rucksack for when you need it.
What’s not: At £60 the price is a little on the salty side, however it is currently on offer at mcnshop.com for £44.99 – which is a little more like it.
