GEAR ON TEST
Debuts galore as Foffa enter the world of clothing while Rapha do similar for helmets. And keep a track of Tile Mate…
The London-based outfit
are better known for their range of singlespeeds but have recently dipped into the clothing market. Their Harrington jacket is Foffa’s flagship item and is… okay. We like the price – half that of brands like Rapha and Vulpine. Unfortunately, it’s not the finest-fitting garment, hanging a little uncomfortably. That could be down to the ventilated back, which clears sweat efficiently but to the detriment of comfort and looks. In fact, we’d say this jacket’s very much function over fashion with a 10k hydrostatic rating showcasing its water-resistant qualities. Long sleeves come in handy when down on the drops, and we appreciate the confident zipper.
