A micro-jacket by another name, packing into its own fist-sized stuff-sack, Polaris’ Ride-Lite is a useful training companion. Made from lightweight, brushed polyester, it enjoys all the hallmarks of a good cycling garment, cut low at the back, protecting the vital organs whilst close fit and elasticated sleeves mean it won’t billow in a gale. Cut is 'classic' Polaris, with a medium fitting me perfectly (I’m a large in most jackets and jerseys).
Available in a choice of red or black, dhb’s Wickham eVent jacket is likely to prove a hit whatever your style of riding. Made from eVent, a three-layer breathable nylon waterproof fabric, it is designed to keep the rider completely dry and it delivers excelent performance in all weathers.
