Wind proof but definitely not breathable
The fit is good, and this is a comfortable jacket. But I found that the slightest effort had me perspiring and needing to unzip - so it becomes less wind proof! Shame as it is so comfortable otherwise.

Thanks for the feedback Dave. Our windproof jackets do breathe through the back fabric however the front fabric panels are all made from a windstopping material that blocks airflow. It is true that there are windproof fabrics in the market that do block wind and also allow the material to breathe but these fabric are exceptionally expensive. We are always keen to ensure our products represent value for money and using the higher functioning fabrics would result in these jackets costing significantly more than these - at least twice the cost for a comparable jacket with a totally breathable windproof construction. Alot of our customers find that pairing the windproof jackets with either a short sleeve or long sleeve base layer provides them with the thermal comfort they are looking for. Hope you still enjoy the jacket and get some good use out of it in those cooler riding conditions.
