New Jacket
#1
After an argument with a particularly evil tree my waterproof is now dead Sad

OK recommendations please folks, I have seen the DHB Wickham eVENT on sale @ £65.99 (£54 off) <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.wiggle.co.uk/p/cycle/7/dhb_Wickham_eVENT_Waterproof_Cycling_Jacket/5360037016/">http://www.wiggle.co.uk/p/cycle/7/dhb_W ... 360037016/</a><!-- m -->

I also checked out the Endura Convert II Jacket as I like the idea of turning into a gilet,

Any ideas?

My advice is semi worthless because of my limited experience of bike clothing, but on the basis that i like a bargain its Decathlon all the way for me. I have a breathable waterproof and a lightweight showerproof jacket which i got from Decathlon for £20 and £10 respectively. both are superb. One survived my first accident with zero damage too.

That's definitely the one I would get, especially for that price.

The one above looks like an Convert II, just without the convert bit. And although I have a Convert II, I can't comment because I havent worn it out yet...

Looks well made though, like all Endura stuff.
My riding is more up and down than the damn area I live in! And the tart's knickers who lives next door - Combined!  :o
