From Craft’s Layer 3 bike range, the 100% polyester AB rain jacket is designed to keep the water out, while being breathable at the same time. To aid ventilation, the whole interior of the jacket, including arms is lined with mesh, there’s a vent across the back in between the shoulder blades and zipped openings just in front of both armpits – we’ll see just how much these features help wick the sweat away when we test the jacket in the saddle!
There’s one large long pocket that sits very low on the rear of the jacket, other than that there are no pockets to speak of. The cuffs and jacket hem are finished off with elastic banding to keep the wind out. Other nice touches include a fleece lined inner collar, full length zipper with external flap to again keep the breeze from penetrating the zip.
Overall it’s a relatively loose fitting lightweight jacket, and it’s now off to go and be tested with our other waterproof jackets.
