Le Col’s Womens Winter Jacket is the warmest Jacket we have tested for a long time. With it’s tailored fit, it’s very comfortable on and off the bike (yes we like to stop for coffee and cake on our product testing ride outs).
With it’s full length zip, wind stopper water resistant thermal front panels, it was the perfect jacket to test, whilst in the Peak District, training for L’Eroica Britannia 2016.
The jacket showed good flexibility whilst riding in and out of the saddle, and best of all, we found that it didn’t ride up like some jackets do at the back.
The jacket has 3 rear pockets which are a great size and one internal pocket. Le Col even have saftey in mind too with this jacket as it has a reflective stripe on the middle pocket at the read of the jacket.
Whilst this jacket is expensive, retailing on Le Col website for £170, it is worth every penny if you like to be warm during the winter months and like to have wind stoppper water resistant thermal front panels.
The Winter Tights have been designed to be worn with the matching jacket. Made from Roubaix material with a high quality gel chamois. With comfortable bib straps and warm lining, these bib shorts were just as warm and comfortable as the jacket, which was greatly needed whilst cycling in freezing temperatures along the Peak District roads.
We have always found bib tights to have some con’s attached to them, no matter how small, but these bib tights gave us no issues what so ever. Comfortable in the chest area, they are sleek, look great, fit like a glove and dont rub anywhere. The retail on the Le Col website at £140.
