Triathlon Plus - - The Big Test -


SPORT­FUL’S JACKET IS a rev­e­la­tion for late-au­tumn and winter rid­ing in change­able con­di­tions. Em­ploy­ing Gore’s Wind­stop­per tech­nol­ogy, the front pan­els let next to no chill through, and also per­form an ad­mirable job of pre­vent­ing wa­ter from reach­ing your mid-layer. Cuffs are firmly elas­ti­cated and don’t budge from your wrists, while the fleeced lin­ing is very com­fort­able and in­su­lat­ing. There are three pock­ets to the rear, sim­i­lar in size to those you’d find in a de­cent jersey, and the high-seated col­lar is also very cosy next to the skin. A front zip­per with a taped con­struc­tion is as close to wa­ter­proof as we could pos­si­bly at­test to, re­sist­ing rain. On a longer ride in stormy con­di­tions, how­ever, wa­ter did be­gin to work its way through the ma­te­rial of the jacket. It’s use­fully breath­able and will re­ally come into its own in early spring­time.
