A very light, packable waterproof jacket, this will happily squeeze into a small rucksack or bag ready to spring into action if the weather turns inclement. It even comes with a small bag, made of the same material as the jacket, for just such a purpose. Fully taped seams and Scott’s ‘DRYOsphere’ technology should ward off the worst of the autumn rain, but we’ll see how they do in the product test
The jacket comes with an integral hood which has a toggle at the back for adjusting the fit, one each side of the face, and another around neckline to keep things snug while riding. One point worth mentioning is that it’s not detachable, and there’s nowhere to fold it out of the way if you don’t want it up.
The cut is described as ‘athletic’ and it is a fitted feminine shape, but there still seems to be room to manoeuvre. On an initial quick try on, we were pleased at the sleeve length – long enough to come down over the hands, with velcro pull tabs to tighten the cuffs.
There are a range range of colours available, with contrasting zip colours, making these jackets quite stylish looking. We opted to have a closer look at the green option. It’s a vibrant colour, and while not flouro, would show up in low light conditions which could place it as a contender for a multi-tasking product that will help you be seen on the road, and keep you dry on the trail.
