The Northwave North Wind Jacket is ideal for your Autumn/Winter season, packable to fit into your jersey pocket, with a highly technical membrane that protects from the wind. The Northwave jacket has highly impressive ventilation and offers great value for money.
“You've got a large mesh section under each armpit, a mesh flap at the upper back and a vent at the lower back.
This lower vent is ideally placed to give you access to your jersey pockets without having to unzip or go under the jacket. All this venting adds up to good breathability for a jacket of this style and it's one of the cooler ones on the market.
Another neat addition at the lower rear vent is a small section of material which Northwave call a banana pouch pocket. You can roll the jacket up and it stores itself in this pouch, which is ideally sized for a jersey pocket.”
It's good at windproofing and the stowable pocket is very easy to cram the jersey while on the move. Impressive ventilation too.”
