    What sort of jacket do you want, what are your priorities? breathablility or waterproofing?

    I use a howies 8 miler (now called the extra miler) it's very breathable, lightweight & showerproof.

    Thanx Andy_B Yes would have to be waterproof and breathable as
    out all day riding.
  • Pace make a nice Event jacket-can't remember if it is called the 3x3 or the 4x4. Also check out Gore Phantom soft shell or stretch your budget slightly to that new Endura softshell at £150.

    Can`t reccomend the Gill Pro Speed highly enough.Waterproof,yet not boil in the bag hot.Good cut,good price.Excellent bit of kit.£80 from wiggle.

    I used to have the Howies extra miler,very breathable,looks nice,but showerproof only,and the hem /drawstring came unattached so it went back.£100 is a lot for something thats only showerproof.

    If you only need showerproof get something like the Montane Velo which folds up into a tiny pack when you don`t need it,is windproof,and only £40.
