The intended user for this winter jacket is the performance road cyclist, it’s been cleverly designed and developed with attention to her needs on those tough winter road rides; both the technological features of the jacket and the details of the fit and styling complement its specific use.
The jacket comes in at £125. However, combining waterproofing and breathability always attracts a high price tag, and dhb are proud to call this one of the most affordable options of its kind on the market. So how well does it perform?
First look at the dhb Aeron Women’s Storm Waterproof Jacket
On first inspection, the Aeron Storm Jacket is composed of a thin, smooth fabric, with a satin-like finish externally and a plastic-like internal facing; surely not enough to keep you warm on a chilly winter morning? The ‘winter bloom’ colour, a deep purple, is attractive and feminine, without being in your face, with detailing in a matching hue or black.
A few great features are immediately apparent; stretchy black sleeve cuffs to keep out wind and bridge any gap between the sleeves and gloves, a soft fleecy collar lining and zip housing for comfort, long zip pullers for ease of use with winter gloves and a longer back panel to keep you well covered on mucky winter roads.
