220 Triathlon



Available in white, pink or the turquoise option shown here, the race cape from Endura is super floaty-light at a mere 98g and comes with its own stuff sack to keep it compact when not in use. In fact, it ends up so small and light you’d better make a note of where you left it, if you want to make sure you don’t misplace it! There are plenty of other good features, too. The transparen­cy means your race number will still be visible through it when worn underneath, which makes it perfect for an autumn/winter duathlon attempt without having to faff about taking race belts on and off mid-race, while a soft collar and zip garage keep it comfy. Cuffs are elasticate­d, while the breathable fabric also has a touch of stretch which helped the fit. Our size small was a good fit, with room to move but without being flappy. In showers this jacket did a good job of keeping the rain off, although in a deluge we did see some water ingress – mainly around the back of the neck – and the arms got very clammy. Still a useful product to have in your kit bag, though.
