HC JACKET NERO/NERO
We’ve put all our technical knowledge into the development of the most sophisticated winter jacket:
The HC Jacket is waterproof, windproof, thermal, breathable, reflective, aerodynamic & protective. It features multiple fabrics each with a specific technical role. This is the gold standard of Winter Jackets.
Waterproof, Windproof & Thermal: Featuring a Schoeller-Dynamic stretch fabric with a Windtex Membrane. The jacket is waterproof, windproof, thermal and breathable
Aerodynamic stretch fit with reduced drag: The main fabric is 4-way stretch and super lightweight to enhance the perfect fit. It fits like a jersey, yet protects like a jacket.
Kevlar Protection for the rider & the jacket: The HC jacket has Kevlar panels on the elbows to provide protection from abrasions and cuts in the event of a crash.
Maximum Visibility with unique reflective panels: Waterproof reflective panels on the cuffs & shoulders to maximize rider visibility.
Maximum breathability & Thermal Exchange: A textured 'Roubaix' material positioned under the arms to moderate body temperature at varied riding intensities.
Widest range of temperature coverage: The fabric is thinner and lighter than most competitor brands, making it appropriate for the widest range of temperatures from -10 to +12 degrees.
Comfort fit high neck collar: A high neck collar to maintain the unaltered micro climate of the body at the key entry/exit point with a specific soft fleece material to avoid irritation on the neck

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!).
