Scott Road jacket

Scott Road jacket, £315

Miles covered/time: 15,000/nine years

What’s good: I simply cannot recommend this fully armoured, fully waterproof jacket enough. Made by well known and highly regarded British company Scott, it’s my default jacket for any rides in any climates. The firm originally made these exclusively for the emergency services and due to popular demand they now make them for the public as well.

The garment feels tough and durable and has kept me dry and warm through colder times, and cool on hot days, on journeys ranging from hops to the pub to continental tours. It comes with a lined inner waistcoat as well. I love it. I still use it to this day and it’s probably the best money I’ve ever spent on any biking gear I’ve owned.

What’s not: After so much use the jacket has started to leak ever so slightly in the front section but Scott offer a full refurbishment service for a nominal fee. You can’t beat good, old-fashioned customer service, can you?
