​Winter Road Cycling Guide – Cycling Jackets That Keep The Wind Out

Posted by


The aim of a windproof jacket is to protect  you from the cold winter chill which is essential in the cooler months.

Lightweight cycling jackets have minimal features and are designed to be easily packed away. They tend to concentrate on windproofing only and usually don’t insulate, relying on other layers to provide the warmth.

There are some softshells available that will provide insulation and also have wind resistant panels – they are basically a long sleeved jersey and wind proof jacket rolled into one. They are good for riding on colder days and are packable, so offer high versatility as they fit into your jersey pockets.

A good quality cycling jacket is breathable and can be waterproof, windproof or both and, unlike synthetic materials such as nylon, quality materials stop the rain getting in and let the perspiration out. You’ll also want to look out for taped seams, often a weak point in cheaper jackets, that can let water in.

3 cycling jackets that keep the wind out:

NORTHWAVE NORTH WIND JACKET

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 you from the wind. The Northwave jacket has highly impressive ventilation and offers great value for money.
