Kept me Warm

Posted02 February 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable, Looks great
Cons: not waterproof
I bought this jacket to shield me from the cold and wind in the winter months. It definitely does the job, have also used it for morning runs. Would recommend as a winter jacket for those cold winter days. But you would need to invest in a waterproof jacket as it doesnt do the two.

A good all round product

Posted02 February 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
The first time I wore this jacket I got caught in a torrential downpour. As it is water resistant rather that waterproof I expected to get a little bit wet. However, I was pleased to discover that my clothes underneath were bone dry. It is definitely very warm, windproof and breathable as promised.
The cut of the jacket means that it has a neat fit and doesn't look too sporty. As I wear 'regular' clothing when I cycle this was a big bonus.
A very good all round product.

Great Top with great features

Posted21 May 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
The Mrs is very happy with this top. Works well and looks good at the same time. I have the mens version which is my go to top for slightly colder days or early mornings. Expensive at full price but after owning one i'd buy another with no questions!!

Great casual look bike jacket

Posted22 April 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great, versatile
I bought the jacket for my wife, as I have the men's version of the jacket and it's great. Unfortunately, she thought the white colour didn't suit her, so we returned it for a refund (as Evans hadn't got the pink version in her size). Apart from the colour, she really liked the jacket, as the fit is quite flattering and the womens version has a subtle relief type design on the face of the fabric on the front - so it looks a little bit more casual (and attractive) than the mens version.
Functionally, I can only comment on the mens version, but it's great both on and off the bike. The only minor cirticism I can make is that for energetic off-road riding, it would benefit form pit zips to aid cooling, but I guess this might spoil the cut and overall look of the jacket - and one of the advantages of the jacket is that it doesn't scream 'cyclist' when worn off the bike, and it's great for other stuff like walking, climbing...or just lounging around in:)

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, long sleeves, slim fit, integrated half gloves
Very good quality, slim fit, integrated "half gloves" to keep your hands warm. Does not only fit whilst cycling, but also in casual use. Seems to be expensive, but offers a lot for the money

lovely and warm

Posted09 November 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: not waterproof
I bought this as i wanted a soft shell with a hood to keep my head warm in winter as i walk my children to school first before cycling to work. Its lovely and warm and certainly wind proof. I bought it in white as i wanted to be seen clearly on the roads especially at night. It looks great and i have had lots of nice comments when wearing it. The only downside is that it is not waterproof.
