Worked late at the office tonight and left just as the big black rain cloud that had been blowing in from the Wirral all day finally arrived in Manchester. The result was getting a royal soaking in about 30 seconds and a good test for the very orange 17 seconds jacket. After a few rides in the stereotypical April weather I’m really impressed. It’s kept the elements out and seems to breath much better than the Goretex XCR I’m used to. I think it probably needs a longer test, but the first impressions are excellent.
Gary Fisher watch out. Simon and Nick have a cunning plan. Quite why the bearded old hippy didn’t think of it first I don’t know. Clear demonstration of Britain leading innovation. Nick has the arguments.
