Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winter Commute warmer It"s been a tough winter and this jacket has been a great help. It is just right for those days above freezing when you want to go quick without bulking up. The cut and quality are exceptional. I purchased the large and it fits just right with the rear pockets perfectly positioned. The sleeves are a good length so no worries when you"re on the drops. It"s not super warm on the sleeves keeping you comfortable when the speed goes up on a group ride. Overall very happy with this super stylish functional winter jacket. Mick Rennison

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HC jacket & bibtights Having now worn the jacket and bib I can report back with confidence. The jacket is warm, breathes and the fit, I’m 6ft and take an XL, is perfect. I like the reflective panels, the pockets, the fabric and the fit. This is an expensive choice, but the quality of construction, the high performance material and fit makes it worth it. The bib tights are excellent, again warm on the cold mornings with a comfortable pad and a great fit. If you want a quality jacket & leggings you’d have to look long and hard to beat Le Col.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not sure how you can improve on this... This a really well thought through Jacket. It"s light for the warmth it provides and fits the body well. The materials are stretchy. The pockets are a good size and whilst they stretch they don"t "drag" down your back. I use either a light thermal or medium thermal underneath for cold riding ( we are talking 2 degrees or so). The internal chest pocket is a nice touch too. You know it"s wicking sweat out, as there is condensation on the inner tube inside the pocket on a dry day. I have hit some rain and showers with no ingress at this stage. Although I haven"t been hit by full on hard rain yet. I don"t find I get too hot either in the jacket, which is a pleasant surprise. Whilst people may think this is expensive, the amount of use through the season will definitely pay for this as it is so versatile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Jacket I have had this jacket a while, but the (good) weather has not given me many opportunities to wear it! However, now autumn is fully underway, this jacket has been fantastic on my early morning rides, with just a base layer underneath. Warm, comfortable, great fit and looks good. I love the reflective panels and the secure waterproof pocket is a nice touch. Without a doubt, the best cycling jacket I have tried (and I have tried plenty of other "top-end" jackets!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket. Warm, good fit, looks ace, keeps out the rain I wore this on a 100-mile sportive in Snowdonia (Wales) through drenching rain and strong winds. It kept the rain out as much as you"d expect any shell to do in those conditions. Worked very well when the rain was light, but after 7 hours in heavy rain I was damp. The main things it kept me warm. Temperature was about 12C but with the windchill it was much lower at times and on the tops of the moors it was cooler. I love the fit and the look

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best winter jacket on the market & superb style Just got this jacket and it"s easily the best jacket on the market right now. I"ve got jackets from Rapha and Assos, the latter is great technically but is a bit bland and I worry about not being seen on dark wet morning rides. This has great visibility and cut, the fit is amazing. I love the little detail like zippers on the sleeve ends and the side zip pocket. Well done guys.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jacket if you have long arms great fit, warm in 2C with only a thin base layer, amzing considering how thin and light the jacket is. Arrived home from a rainy commute bone dry inside. love the visibility of the arms and reflective patches. Just wish the sleeves were a bit shorter. feels like it is tailored for an orang utan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HC JACKET I bought this jacket recently. The fit and feel of the jacket is very good. It"s well made and finished. As this is a winter jacket and the weather has been quite mild I have not yet tried it on a ride but sure I will be using it soon along side the HC bib tights I have also bought.
