Briko GT Team Jacket

Manufacturer:

Price as reviewed:

£89.99

If nothing else the Briko GT Team jacket will bring a splash of colour to your cycling wardrobe. Orange, green, red or a simple black colour option is available in sizes small to XXXL, so there’s something to suit everyone’s taste and size.

The sizing is on the generous side, with the cut seeming more comfort-orientated than racy. Thanks to the extra material, we felt well protected from the elements, though a stubborn bunching problem at the torso became annoying.

Sizing issues aside, this jacket excelled. The soft-shell outer brushed off wind and rain, eliminating the need for a rain cape on showery days. Comfort was good, with a soft interior fabric that extends to the high collar and which helped us feel protected from the weather.

Five pockets cover all carrying needs. Two waterproof zipped pockets and three traditional-style rear pockets are enough to hold all the essentials without the sag you get with some budget jackets. Reflective trim at the back and front helps the bright colours shine, while the waist-grippers help to keep the jacket’s shape on the bike, though the thumb-loops feel like a bit of an afterthought.

Verdict

The Briko GT Team jacket offers bombproof protection for all conditions. Five pockets offer plenty of storage space, but we found the fit to be on the generous side, with bunching of material being a bit of an issue.
