Triathlon Plus - - The Big Test -


AT FIRST GLANCE the name of this jacket ap­pears to be a mis­nomer, but you’d be wrong. Clever tech has gone into its de­sign, and tiny mi­cro dots of re­flec­tive ma­te­rial on the rear of the gar­ment and front of the shoul­ders il­lu­mi­nate when hit by the beams of on­com­ing ve­hi­cles, de­spite the jacket look­ing red in nor­mal use. Be­yond this, it’s another light­weight jacket, with a fairly ac­com­mo­dat­ing cut, which al­lows for ther­mal lay­ers to be worn be­neath. For a light­weight jacket, it’s im­pres­sively wa­ter­proof, as well as breath­able, even in a half-hour storm that turned our socks to mush. Taped seams through­out, plus a taped front zip­per go some way to achiev­ing this. A rear zipped pocket will take the big­gest of smart­phones, but that’s your lot for stor­age.
