Certainly compared to this ’boutique’ brandPosted 4 years ago
wonder how waterproof it is compared to a featherlite velo? I’ve had one for about 4 years, quite waterproof once its been retreated.
On the face of it, it looks superb value, and more stylish than the above.
In the end I will probably buy it as I have been very pleased with my other recent purchases, especially the ventile jacket 🙂Posted 4 years agouser-removedMember
Hmmm. Not convinced. Back when Karrimor weren’t awful, I bought a cycling jacket which looked exactly similar to this. It made similar claims in terms of windproof-ness.
It hung off me like a wet rag – just far too thin to be useful. That said, fabrics have come a looong way in the intervening years – I just know that very thin jackets make me look skeletal and suspect this would be no different.
Also (forgive me), what’s it for? I have a Gore Paclite fluo jacket which fits in a pocket. Fairly breathable, windproof and completely waterproof. Covers more bases in terms of the weather changing.
I guess it’s OK for windy days where you might go up and down a bit and want to regulate your temperature…Posted 4 years agoyunkiMember
I’m gonna sell my bike so I can get that Rapha number.. it’s cool as ****
I won’t have a bike, but it won’t matter one **** jot cos I’ll be able canter around everywhere playing horse racing and looking like a jockey..Posted 4 years ago
If I had money to burn I would actually buy it for it’s elegance but it would be impossibly hard not to sneer (and bray) at other riders that I met on the trail..no_eyed_deerMember
I like him really…er?
I think that sums it up.
No, I’ve never met him. I’m sure he’s a nice person really. 😳
