SANTINI BETA WIN­TER WIND­STOP­PER JACKET VEGA 2.0 AQUAZERO BIBTIGHTS

Bikes Etc - - WINTER LOOKS -

WHAT THEY SAY: On the jacket, the com­bi­na­tion of fab­rics pro­vide op­ti­mal pro­tec­tion from the el­e­ments with­out the need for bulky lay­ers. The bibtights mean­while have a high stretch wa­ter-guard Aquazero treat­ment with grade 4 wa­ter re­pel­lence that’ll keep you rid­ing even if the fore­cast is less than favourable.

WHAT WE SAY: First up a note on the size. We know we al­ways bring this up where Santini prod­ucts are con­cerned but we found this combo (the jacket in par­tic­u­lar) to re­ally come up on the small size, and we’d highly rec­om­mend you try be­fore you buy to get the right fit­ting. That said, this is a great op­tion, par­tic­u­larly if you’re a su­per sleek rider who loves a fit­ted look. Made from in­su­lated Gore Wind­stop­per fab­ric this is a jacket that will serve you well in low sin­gle-digit tem­per­a­tures as long as you’re wear­ing a good base layer and putting in a shift. It per­forms solidly in mid to heavy down­pours, too, so will keep out most of what the UK weather will sling at you, not least be­cause of its sealed seams and the gen­er­ous storm flap be­hind the zip. Four pock­ets, in­clud­ing a zip­pered se­cu­rity one, bring up the rear. Avail­able in sizes S-XXXL and in red, black or yel­low. The bibtights, mean­while, are warm, wa­ter­proof and com­fort­able with the so-called GITEVO Chamois mak­ing for a par­tic­u­larly com­fort­able pad, its gel core pro­tect­ing our bits and bobs nicely.
