Urban Cyclist - - Gear On Test -

This smart take on the road­ies’ tra­di­tional gilet is billed as wa­ter­proof thanks to its 100% polyester and three-layer con­struc­tion, and it cer­tainly coped ad­mirably with a tem­pes­tu­ous Fe­bru­ary test pe­riod. Of course, that still leaves your arms ex­posed, so to max­imise that wa­ter­proof of­fer­ing you’d be look­ing at a short-sleeve base un­der-gar­ment plus arm warm­ers in­stead of the long-sleeve tested. Three zipped pock­ets are use­ful on-the-fly, and po­ten­tially it’s a fine gar­ment but is let down by a slightly rigid fit and col­lar that sits un­tidily on your torso and neck.
