Endura always has you covered and sheltered from the elements! This jacket is toasty but vents heat so it's perfect for long rides on paved roads but durable enough to take you off the beaten path for gravel adventures. This jacket isn't completely waterproof but it's water resistant. If it's below freezing I can wear this with a thick, thermal base layer and I'm good to go, it's great to avoid too many layers that feel cumbersome and restrictive. I followed the sizing chart and I'm very happy with the overall fit. The cinched sleeves are a great detail and it's easy to roll my sleeve up and down to check my watch.
I'm also a bike commuter and have enjoyed wearing this for warmth and visibility as I run errands this Winter. The neon yellow and the reflective bits make me feel seen on the road. I even get compliments on it from people at the shops and bank! Too bad it's usually got some bike grease on it but that's a me problem.
Endura's also taken care of all the details that elevate a piece of kit from good to great. The Endura logo shaped grips at the hem, the lined pit zips, and the pockets! The pockets! The pockets are amazing! The front zippered pocket is perfect for ID, insurance card, and some cash. Then there's an additional zippered pocket on the back! The spacious pouches on the back are easy to retrieve my phone and snacks from then shove wrappers back into when I'm done.
Outdoor outfitters should be the most committed to sustainability; lots of love to Endura for eliminating PFC's which are all too common in outdoor apparel!
My wife like this jacket as her riding one is not as well insulated. Has used it in windy conditions and temperatures in mid 30s without feeling uncomfortable wearing it. Great product and very visible as well
