Bright orange?
Title says wind-proof but it appears to be waterproof.
£50+ everywhere else - looks like a bargain.

Women's version (Evo - slightly updated with hand warmer pockets) is only £40 in black (possibly less sensible/visible colour for cycling but it looks a lot better!).

This is probably a decent jacket but TBH, in the UK weather, with a base layer and this on top you'll probably be too hot except on the coldest winter days. I've got an old Altura jacket from 10 years ago, which is amazingly breathable, with a 2 way zip, and with my base layer gives me sufficient warmth in the winter. Shame they don't make them anymore and I haven't seen any with the 2 way zip either, which used to be a standard function of Altura jackets.

There doesn't seem to be much in the market for breathable jackets; you either got jackets like this or what are effectively breathable bin liners which will rip after a few uses. Majority of the cycling market is targeted at either the rich carbon fibre boys or the lowest level retail market, with nothing for those in the middle. Funny that!
Would recommend this jacket, the zips under arms are great for regulating your temperature so you can avoid that bin liner feeling! If you change your base layer with the seasons can be used right through from Oct to April.
I am also looking for a reasonably priced highly breathable jacket that is not skin tight but cant find anything either.
