Montane balances breathability and waterproofness with its bike-specific jacket released this 2011 called the Featherlite Velo H2O. Ideal for performance road cycling, the lightweight and thin Freeflow H2O fabric makes the jacket sufficiently breathable and waterproof at the same time.

Perfect tight fit is offered by the jacket’s short front and long back. The arms are made very long to cover the wrists even when stretched out during rainy rides. The jacket has no hood and pockets, which allows it to pack down small and easy to stash in the jersey back pocket.

Fully showerproof, the 2011 Montane Featherlite Velo H2O Jacket keeps the rider’s inner clothing dry even under heavy rains. This makes it one of the most breathable cycling jackets available today and so far the only performance road cycling garment that perfectly balances breathability and waterproofing.

Adding to the comfort are the elastic carcass and honeycomb gel padding. Other features are a plastic-bodied, Titanium-railed perch with a synthetic cover. Also optimizing comfort is its long and flattish overall shape with a pretty wide nose and enough flex at the base of the saddle.

Quite easy to cope with, the 2011 Velo Senso Miles 1261 saddle is made with honeycomb holes that provide much extra airflow. It can be a little flat and hard at first but after a couple of long rides, riders will definitely warm to its shape….
