Sugoi has released its latest water and wind resistant cycling garment this 2011 called the Majik Shell Jacket. With an incorporated SUGOi’s S3+ Protection fabric, the cycling jacket protects riders even under the harshest conditions during winter.

Constructed with a four-way stretch, the jacket also features a polyester outer face that is laminated to a polyurethane inner, including taped seams all over the garment. No doubt the construction is top-notch but it is not ideal under heavy rain.

While the jacket is breathable, it has a little problem on the sleeves. Its rear vent is not very effective so riders have to regulate temperature using the front zip. On the other hand, the shell jacket is low in bulk and is extraordinary when it comes to offering protection from nasty weather.
