About this deal

They'll keep out windchill and can be paired with cycling base layers to protect the core and bib tights for winter rides. Many windproof jackets will also have some level of water resistance, and tend to be more breathable than fully waterproof coats. The jacket can be packed into a fist-sized ball and fit our tester’s tall and broad frame like a glove, with hems sitting at the perfect length and stretch at the back making for unrestricted range of movement. I generally find tights are either to thin, cold and clammy, to thick and overly warm, or so compressive that my already poor knee lift is impeded. The result is an unbelievably light, soft-to-the-touch, quiet and stylish jacket that keeps runners warm and dry – even if they sweat a lot, or when the weather gets grim.

Measure around the narrowest part (below the bottom rib and above the hip bones), keeping the tape horizontal. There’s a few small reflective details, but the more commuter-focused can choose from various colour options, including a high-vis yellow/black. Ticking the Holy Trinity of breathable, comfortable and affordable, the cape also stands out in conditions of low visibility. They have flat waist drawstring, a thigh pocket (not large enough for a phone whereas last year’s X7 pant did and that was welcome ) and a snug mesh bottom cuff (with no zippers) that can be tucked into or stretched over the top of a nordic boot or winter socks for a touch of gaiter like protection. Temperature’s sufficient in mild conditions, but you’ll need to add some insulating layers for colder outings.

Incredibly light, soft and comfortable, the Gore Wear R5 Gore-Tex Infinium Soft Lined Hooded Jacket is a protective outer layer, perfect for the cooler months.

For instance, look out for details like a mesh back and underarm panels, side ventilation zips, a double-ended zip, and use of lightweight materials.

If you’re commuting and cycling in a more upright position, you probably want a relaxed cut that can go over a couple of other layers easily.

While it's not windproof throughout the whole garment, the Everyday jacket from Gorewear has Windstopper material on the front and sleeves to keep you toasty enough in most conditions for casual riding or commuting.

Men’s and women’s versions of the GORE® R5 GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ Insulated jacket will begin to launch at retail for €249. It keeps you warm thanks to a Polartec® Alpha® insulation and is fully equipped with two zippered side pockets and a hood. We don’t conduct a separate review of ratings to check that the ratings displayed are actually from consumers. Our Men's running jackets provide super lightweight protection from the wind and cold ensuring you can hit the roads any time of the year. It is fine for a bit of light rain / drizzle but over the last week I've been out in proper rain and got soaked.
