The Ital­ian-made Mossa, which uses warm yet breath­able four­way stretch Wind­tex Stormshield fab­ric, is well sealed. It fits true to size, close to the skin and is de­signed to be used with a polypropy­lene base layer (£65). This com­bi­na­tion helps to pull sweat from the skin ef­fi­ciently. Parentini claims the Wind­tex mem­brane uses this sweat to help keep you warm dur­ing the evap­o­ra­tion process. This is hard to quan­tify but the Mossa does reg­u­late tem­per­a­ture well once you’ve warmed up, and keeps you dry on the in­side. We rode it from 5°C-15°C with­out is­sue but a heav­ier weight base layer is re­quired for colder tem­per­a­tures.
