Triathlon Plus - - The Big Test -


THIS JACKET FEATURES in­ter­nally taped seams to keep out the weather, a three-layer con­struc­tion, and a storm flap cov­er­ing the main front zip­per, again to keep out the rain. Quite sim­ply, it’s one of the most weath­er­proof train­ing jack­ets we’ve ever worn. It’s also very light­weight, its thin con­struc­tion mak­ing it pos­si­ble to roll up and stow in a rear jersey pocket, and it pro­vides an im­per­me­able skin over what­ever you hap­pen to be wear­ing be­neath. Al­though there are only two pock­ets, the zipped right-hand-side com­part­ment runs the en­tire width of the jacket’s rear, and there’s an ex­tra pouch on the left, com­plete with drain holes. The Pro SL’s breatha­bil­ity is un­sur­passed in this test, and over­all pro­tec­tion is im­proved fur­ther by a very high col­lar and anatom­i­cally-de­signed stretch cuff. The best outer layer we’ve tested in a very long time.
