The Vulpine Softshell jacket is made from the finest dual-layer fabric, say Vulpine, with an outer water-resistant, windproof layer bonded to a tightly fleeced inner layer.
The jacket has a level of design and detail liberally sprinkled about it that suggests the creator rides his bike a lot, or has OCD, or has had one too many rides ruined by a bit of kit with a particularly niggly annoying 'if only they'd just' feature. Actually, it's probably all of those.
Endura clothing has been around for almost 20 years, and is especially well-known in the mountain-bike world. The Equipe range is for road cycling, and unashamedly aimed at the higher end of the market. As part of this image, the Endura Equipe website makes much of the development of cycling garments for and by the Endura professional road racing team.
The Bionicon Soft Shell jacket isn't cheap at £150 but it offers a different look and good performance from a fairly expensive proofing technology. The cut is not too bike specific and the style is urban/mtb, so it's a good all-rounder
