What’s good? This jacket is waterproof, windproof and breathable, so it can handle almost any weather that you care to ride through.
I’ve ridden in sub-zero temperatures in the middle of the night and felt warm and snug.On the other end of the scale I’ve filtered though heavy Barcelona traffic in the height of summer without becoming soaked in sweat.
If you do get too hot or cold while wearing this, the zipper is easily big enough to operate, even with thick winter gloves.
What’s not? When the collar is fully zipped up the zip digs into the front of my neck which becomes irritating after a while. The cuffs could do with being a bit larger as I struggle to fit them over most of my jackets.
