Giordana Windtex Jacket
#1
Got me one of these last week, a £30 ebay bargain...
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.parker-international.co.uk/10964/Giordana-Tecnical-Blend-Soft-Shell-Jacket-Black-white-E606.html">http://www.parker-international.co.uk/1 ... -E606.html</a><!-- m -->

First test, 7.30am Sat morning blast with just a s/s jersey under and was abso toastie warm!

It's apparently 'shower proof' so won't expect it to hold out full-on rain, but it most definitely is windproof and warm.
Looks really cool on the bike too, being same colours, apart from the mud!!
Just thought I'd share the love :K)

My mate Burnsy has a similar jacket which is "soft shell" - he swears by it - although White soon looks quite tired and grey with age.

For winter, there is no better combination than a proper baselayer, jersey and a jacket - after you're fully warm, the jackets off and your motoring.

No doubt there will be many "Winter" threads emerging real soon.

My fleece lined Altura was too warm last winter, unfortunately the zip broke when still under warranty so it went back for a full refund and was replaced by a lighter weight non fleeced version which is also excellent.
