When considering what brand of jacket you’re going to spend your hard-earned cash on, Scott probably wouldn’t even be on your list. We suggest you rewrite that list and put Scott near the top.
Scott has used a Gore-tex membrane to help separate you from the elements. The real beauty of this jacket, however, lies in the detail.
When you first put it on the fit feels poor, but as soon as you mount your bike it feels amazing, even though the material isn’t particularly flexible.
There’s a large rear flap that’s designed to allow easy access to rear pockets, although, to be honest, we still just lifted the hem reach. Other nice details are a tiny zipped key pocket, bicep cooling vents and a waist drawcord to further optimise the fit.
It keeps rain at bay, although its lack of taped seams demonstrates it’s not intended to be fully waterproof. Its breathability was good, although it still gets hot after a while, suggesting it’s perhaps more suited to colder days.
