How it Performed as My Hi Vis Cycling Jacket in a Gloomy Damp Cumbria Autumn

We’ve been using this lightweight training or bike jacket for riding this autumn. So far we haven’t had downpours but in light rain & drizzle it’s been ideal. We’ve had no sign of leakage at the seams. The high neck guard & storm flap have turned away everything that’s been thrown at it.

The zipped cycle  pocket is a little smaller than ideal for gloved hands at this time of year but the zip does add to security & repels water! The front pockets, zipped again, are covered by storm flaps so no problems there either.

There’s a vented area (and again it’s storm flap covered)  at the shoulders which is ideal for keeping cool when putting some effort in.

As usual with lightweight training / shower jackets of this kind care should be taken with the inner storm flap around the zip – it’s too easy to get it snagged when fastening.

The “Saturn Yellow” finish helps to make this a very reasonable hi vis cycling jacket, always important at this time of year if you are on the roads in evening or early morning gloom. However, the reflective piping isn’t that visible for night time running, walking or biking.

All in all a great cost effective solution for the active life style. Call us on 016973 43546 or use our contact page to send an enquiry.
