My son needs cycling jacket advice please

MidnightMidnight Posts: 80
Being autistic it is impossible for me to get my son out of long trousers.

In the height of summer he WILl wear a hooded fleece and jogging bottoms.

I am not rich but I have bought him a number of very thin bottoms this week but I need to get a long sleeve loose fitting jacket.

All I see are £2-300 cycling jackets

    Firstly it is great news that your son is enjoying cycling but the second comment doesn't make sense re: £2-300 What?

    How old is he? Just get a cheap childrens jacket from ebay/ gumtree / facebook marketplace? Or must he wear rapha?

    Do you want a jacket (like a waterproof coat) or a long sleeve jersey (like a tracksuit top)

    Decathlon or Sports Direct?

    Decathlon every time.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Aldi. Lidl. They sell lots of bike kit from time to time and it's all perfectly serviceable. Or even a running jacket which will be lighter and better suited for the summer.
