Polaris is a manufacturer with a huge range of clothing for all types of cycling, and this Sapphire jacket is described as being suitable for road, trail or urban use. It's a nice piece of kit, but can it really be so versatile?
With the Pulse, Polaris have put a strong case forward for spending a little extra, and getting something that you can wear without feeling like you're boiling in a bag.
You can't beat a bit of day-glo for the darker months and Polaris RBS Hoolie gloves are an absolute bargain for general riding thanks to solid, weather resistant construction and effective gel padding. Some have suggested the Scotchlite detailing wasn't generous enough and should extend to the fingertips. I have some sympathy with this argument but was pleased by it's omission having gesticulated at a particularly ignorant driver along a narrow and deserted lane somewhere close to midnight.
Polaris started life as a small outfit making mountain bike clothing about two decades ago, and since then has also branched into other cycling worlds, with the RBS range of clothing aimed at the road and commuter markets. The range includes this RBS Jacket. And a very nice piece of kit it is too.
