Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great do anything winter jacket On my second one, these things are pretty bullet proof. I've worn this thing in torrential winter down poors on ~80mi dirt rides and it has kept me warm and dry. Awesome kit to layer with in the colder winter months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Amazing It's one of the best things I had ever own since I been riding for over 30 years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I wear this with a base layer and it keeps me warm & dry, it's not heavy or bulky and fits true to size. Other reviews said it has extra room in the arms and that was the case with mine but that did not bother me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have It's expensive but is totally worth every penny. Being from a tropical country, I moved to Japan and experience my first winter riding condition. Doubt it will be too cold for me only with this Hardshell and base layer long sleeve. Temperature was around 5°C and I'm totally happy with it. It kept me warm, comfortable and light. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True workhorse I purchased the Hardshell over a month ago and have ridden several times. Now you'd think living in Southern California wouldn't require durable layers but lately with all the rain and irregular temperatures this jacket has proven to be very useful and unique. Protecting from rain, wind, and still manages to stay dry from within when building internal heat. My favorite piece out my collection by far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I own two of these -- that's how well they work Love the jacket, so I now own two.. I wear it three seasons. Wth a wool base layer it is comfortable to 3-5 °C -- with an extra layer added, I feel comfortable below 0. Waterproofing is also a bonus -- the jacket is a "ride extender".

What is the difference between HARDSHELL JACKET and PRO TEAM SOFT-SHELL JACKET?

Asked by: ChrisLeung
The Hard Shell Jacket is a Taped seamed, Waterproof Jacket. The Pro team Soft Shell Jacket uses a different material to increase the breathability of the Jacket, opposed to the Hard Shell which is designed for weather occlusion and repels wind and rain at the cost of less breathability. The Pro Team cut is more streamlined compared to the Hardshell which has a Classic fit

Hi, will the jacket fit in a jersey pocket. And where is it made.

Asked by: Eden1
Hi, this jacket is a bit bulky to fit in a jersey pocket, so would be best worn as an outer layer throughout a ride. The Hardshell Jacket is made in China.

I fell with my jacket in the mud. Now it seems hard to clean. Any suggestions on watching method?

Asked by: Gette
Hi, the best way to clean your jacket is with non-bio detergent at a temperature of 30 degrees celsius. Higher temperatures or biological detergent could damage the jacket.

Hi, what kind of temperature in Celsius are we talking about for the Hardshell? I want to wear during Melbourne morning and evening commutes which are around 3-12 degrees. Would this be too heavy duty?

Asked by: beau
Hi, we cannot advise on the temperature range of the Hardshell as we all regulate temperature differently and exertion levels also need to be considered. The Hardshell Jacket has been designed to wear all-day for absolute protection against the elements. It is completely waterproof and windproof and is the ultimate workhorse jacket, no matter how severe the riding conditions.
