With near year-round usability, this jersey/jacket is a great investment.
Back in the good old days, there were heavy winter jackets and light summer wear. Now though, the lines have been blurred slightly and you'll probably find yourself using a jersey like this throughout most of the year.
The reason that this jacket was given top marks by Mat Brett in his review for road.cc is its ability to keep you comfortable across a range of temperatures.
The outer layer is completely windproof, blocking all the wind thanks to the Windstopper 150 fabric. It's not waterproof, but the surface is treated with a coating that makes light rain bead off.
The inner layer is a fleecy fabric which Mat said adds a lot of warmth, allowing him to be comfortable from 0°C-12°C.
Mat found the separate layer design to be very useful when climbing as you can unzip the outer layer, but still, keep the inner thermal layer zipped up.
Even in the summer, the UK can easily see cooler weather, making this usable for a massive chunk of our cycling season.
The jacket works really well with Castelli's Scudo gloves!
