excellent as always

PostedMarch 5, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Like with most people I guess, I began to start splashing out and investing in quality products (and make no mistake Assos doesn't come cheap) as I started to take my cycling more seriously and wanted to continue cycling all year round no matter the weather and as such wanted gear that was comfortable and well, did the job and would last!!. Once again I'm not disappointed, this jacket is the perfect autumn/early winter jacket, great design, fits wonderfully and made to last...what more can I say - excellent as always

Great winter training jacket

PostedDecember 14, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
Great product in my opinion. The site says its good to 5 degree. But I've worn it down to -4 already. With the right base layer and a hard enough tempo this might be the only jacket you'll need.

Best Jacket Ever

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
I wouldn't bother trying any other jacket.
Head straight for your nearest Assos supplier and pick up a IJ Habu jacket.

First Assos piece I'm not happy about

PostedFebruary 8, 2011
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Heavy, Expensive, Uncomfortable
Habu looks and feels amazing. Fit is usual assos click-in. Super cool reflective details etc... Doesn't ride well.
First, climate range. Good luck riding it 6c. Even with Winter interactive. Still need Element Zero. This makes 500 EUR top.
Second - front zipper. No way you can open or close it with one hand - essential need on the bike. Really annoying on the climbs. This jacket requires careful dressing in front of the mirror.
Third - pockets. Intstead of classic 3 pockets+1 zip, Habu has 1 large pocket and 2 zipped. I my case - very uncomfortable. Imagine you have your vest in large compartment so you put power bars in the zipped - a lot trickier to fish them out of the pocket on the ride.
Then there's moisture control. A lot of it stays inside. Pockets are so steamy you need a holster for your phone.
All my cycling clothing comes from Assos, I love them dearly, but this time they got it wrong.
My reco would be to combine Intermediate Evo with warm base layers as long as you can and then go straight to AirJack with spring interactive.
