Fantastic cycling jacket that makes you light up like a beacon in the lights of a car. And for less than £25 it's a total steal! I've had mine for three years and still going strong.

Spot on!
I have this. Definitely recommend it. I’ve never removed the sleeves though.
Might save your life
What's the fit like?

I read from the reviews that the under arm is very tight when in the cycling position- so based on that I’m out . Might get into store to try . Great price though , voted hot .
Great jacket for night visibility around lights, not so great to wear as the only layer besides your shirt unless it's literally near freezing point and you are riding reasonably hard, as it doesn't vent heat very well. But over another soft shell cycling jacket that does wick heat away from your torso, it works fine.

I was worried about reports of tight arms on the sizing, but I found the medium was fine... Well worth reserving one, pop into store and try sizes before going to staff to collect your reserved one.

The Boardman MTB trousers are also on offer and I've found them great for autumn riding!

Thanks , I’ve done that , I thought I had to pay upfront . I’ll try before I buy
Reviews say this isn't breathable, so although it will help you get seen at night it is likely to leave you and the clothes you are wearing under it pretty wet and stinky should you ride for more than a few miles. If you just do short night trips it should be adequate. For more active riders the Altura Night Vision range is probably better (but more expensive).

Great for night but I am not convinced as a day jacket as you will just blend in with the surroundings which actually makes it more dangerous.

Lights on in the morning, and by night at this time of the year! Hopefully they see you! Drivers have trouble noticing motorcyclists let alone pedal cyclists. Treat everybody as if they didn't see you, it's the only way to stay alive. Still the best, and most ethical way to commute (except for walking I guess).

I ride in cycling gear. I get changed at work. As you say; spend more to get the breathable one.
