One of the best jackets IMHO for performance cycling/mountain biking because it's very breathable so you don't sweat inside it much (I have this jacket and the previous version called Gill Pro Speed).

May be good for some other sports but note what 'cycling fit' means:
- short at the front (aka "long at the back")
- sleeves are long so you don't get a gap when reaching forward
- and on this one there are no pockets!
I'd wear this skiing as well.

RRP listed as £119.99, I thought I got a good deal at £80 last year.
(Wiggle is the only place to buy dhb clothing in the UK btw)

Model seems to be discontinued (why?) and they only have black colour left but that's not quite as stupid (dangerous) as it sounds because it has good reflective piping.

use this £10 voucher for the price quoted (you may need to checkout with paypal because it's a paypal offer voucher):

expires 11th Feb so hurry!

All sizes in black showing plenty of stock at time of posting, and XL in red.

my advice would be to buy a size up as they are cut quite close, e.g. i'm normally small, but a medium lets me wear a wool jumper underneath which is great at the moment.

edit:
+4% QuidCo (thanks CannedChaos)
making this... £53.75 ?

Ordered! (+heat+rep) Been looking for a good MTB jacket for a while - this is a tad above my budget, but I'd rather spend a few quid more and have quality gear.

Wiggle also have the new 2010 model (droxford) for £62 (-£10 with voucher), which is available in hi-viz yellow. Same exact cut, but the manufacturer went with a cheaper and less breathable fabric for the new jackets to lower prices - RRP of new model is £30 less. At current prices, it's good idea to grab a wickham before they run out and get a better jacket for your money.

you're welcome, i've bought another as a spare because this jacket is just so good (mainly the fit) and i don't know if they'll do another the same. I have worn mine most days since 2007, been through lots of brambles/gorse/trees and a few falls with no damage yet...
only sent the first back to wiggle because i messed up the waterproofing, they fully refunded me (after 1.5 years!) and i used the money to buy the 2nd. can't fault wiggle.
i stacked a 2nd voucher (personal sorry!) and got this for £46. but if you have other vouchers wiggle DO let you stack them.

haven't tried the Droxford but doubt that material is anywhere near as breathable (and possibly more rippable aswell?)

65.99 - 10 surely equals 55.99?

er yes that's what i see at the top, don't you? :)

this is an event jacket for £56, half the price of anything similar that I know, give it some heat folks :gift:
you can find lots of jackets with less good material around this price so it might not be clear how different this stuff is until you try it.. i can literally ride full out with it done almost to the top and not get too sweaty. anything else (except some other £100+ jackts) is either too sweaty or not waterproof!
#5
I don't expect this will get too much heat - more esoteric stuff like camera lenses or bike gear doesn't get very hot usually. This isn't an impressive price to the layman as there are seemingly similar products around for less. You need to be a bit of an aficionado and/or spend some time researching to tell this is a good deal.

But yeah, when a jacket gets full marks for value in pretty much every review when priced at ~£100, £55 seems pretty damn good.

Oh, by the way - don't forget 4% Quidco from Wiggle!
#6
Can certainly vouch for eVent as a good material. I wondered about this jacket for a while but the total lack of pockets and the lo-viz colours made me go for the Montane Stormrider in eVent for 99 quid. eVent isn't the most robust material (as the gravel-rash on my jacket, base layer and arm attest) but this is a good price. I still have the same question - why not spend a bit more for something safer and more useable - it'll last a few years. Still, if this is your budget or you won't use it that often - this is a great jacket.
#7
CannedChaos,
thanks, I've been using wiggle for years without quidco, doh!

meanredspider,
i use mine all the time, pockets dont matter because i carry a camelbak. so not sure what i'd gain by spending more really. visibility during daylight could be a bit poor. stick more reflective stuff on it if you want? :) for this price i'm less worried about ripping it, which is a big plus too.

Well, errr, ummm, No.
Title says £56.99 which is incorrect. 55.99 is a whole pound less, feel free to think about it for a while before posting right away and looking like a joey (again).
I agree it's a reasonable price

edt:
O yeah, remember to edit your quidco calculations too.
Who said MTBers were thick?

Quidco tracked at 2.24. Total price £53.75.

The price was right in the actual price box but wrong in the thread title, hence the confusion. Probably not a big enough deal to warrant accusing the entire MTB community of math illiteracy. We need to be good at maths to tell how many gears a bike has (remember, you MULTIPLY the chainrings, not ADD them ;P )
#10
ok i've thought about it and 53,54,55 or 56 £ it's still a great deal :) still lots of stock too but voucher expires tonight i guess? then it'll be.. 65 or 66. ish ;)
people were chuffed with this at £80 before..
just found i can vote hot on my own deals, classy.

Mine arrived today. Bought a large - I'm 6', 44" chest, 32" waist; so pretty much between sizes. The large was a good choice - fits well, just roomy enough to accomodate a fleece if needed. I expect the medium would be too narrow in the shoulders.

Looks like a lovely jacket - definitely designed for cycling with the long sleeves and butt flap, but it looks good enough that I'll probably use it for hiking/jogging as well. Gonna take it out for a spin this weekend, see how well it breathes.

(BTW, Smiff, I just realised where I know your avatar from. Good album, good album.)

...go for the Montane Stormrider in eVent for 99 quid


Where from? Seems a bit cheap...
#13
Mine arrived too - unfortunately it's going back. Too short in the body length.

Got the medium and it's a good fit for 6' and 39" chest. Good length in the arms but could do with 4" more in the body.

For a hefty full price they could have made a 'zip hood' on the chin area and maybe a bite patch for one hand zipping down. The way it is now would irritate me in more ways than one.

Overall - decent fit if it was a bit longer and reasonable price at £60

and maybe a bite patch for one hand zipping down.

BITE PATCH


I have never heard of such a device and now I'm never buying a jacket without one. ;-)


Then again, can't you just bite a collar anyway even in the absence of a designated "bite zone"?
#15
Every day is a school day...

Zip hood and bite patch - it's all in the detail :thumbsup:

yes i'm 5' 10" ish and have medium. sorry i did try to suggest go larger.. the zip has never bothered me personally. I like things simple and light, but each to their own.

@CannedChaos,
i find it best not to wear too much, it's breathable but not magic ;). One good base layer and one jersey underneath and i'm fine down to maybe -2C? unless i have to stop, for then you'll want to be carrying another layer. got another flat today so planning on going tubeless, getting flats in these temperatures is no joke, jacket or no.


someone can repost this at £65 and watch it go hotter than this :D
