Has anyone bought a Chpt3 JJ (jersey jacket)

I have read about them and wondered is it the next gabba, or something different, would it replace a original alpha jersey or jacket?
it does look quite cool

Cheers


it is the same in terms of choice of fabric and cut etc as far as I know. It's just styled differently.

Anyway, it looks like quite a nice Gabba. I don't think I'd pay the premium myself, but if it were a straight shoot-out between the two I'd go with the JJ.

Do I add a hashtag now?

I've got one and can vouch that it's absolutely worth the money. It's quite different to the Gabba, actually (I own one so can make a direct comparison).

The J/J isn't waterproof like the Gabba, but instead it's made from foam-like layers. It sounds odd but in practice is a real game-changer and very different to anything i've used before. All of the reviews on their site are true, it keeps your temperature perfect in such a huge range of temperatures - I've stayed warm at 1C with a merino base layer or two and can comfortably wear it on days like today at around 15C without overheating. https://chpt3.com/products/chpt-j-j-jer ... 9475801162

Shipping with CHPT3 was fast and free - can wholeheartedly recommend.

I have one and it is incredible. Used it through the winter from minus 5 to plus 10. Sold all my other jackets as they were rendered obsolete, one of which was a Castelli Alpha ROS. Worth every penny and when you consider the versatility its actually quite cheap. Believe the reviews.
