Lightweight all weather garments like the Castelli Gabba are becoming increasingly popular. With the launch of the FS260-Pro SL Classics Jersey Scottish company Endura has thrown its hat into this competitive section of the clothing market.

The Classics jersey was developed with the Movistar WorldTour team and comes as a short sleeve jeresey with separate arm warmers for improved versatility – for example when the weather is particularly severe.

By using a thin stretchy material Endura has sought to create a lightweight jersey that is breathable whilst at the same time able to keep out the wind and repel light rain.

The Classics jersey does an impressive job of protecting you from the elements – however, if substantial downpours are expected you’d want something more substantial – and importantly you don’t overheat even when putting in some effort.

The jersey has a large dropped tail that offers good coverage from road spray and there are reflective decals for improved visibility.

There are also three rear pockets for you to store your emergency supplies and to enhance the jersey’s comfort there are soft thermal Roubaix underarm panels.

There is a lot to like about the Endura FS260-Pro SL Classics jersey. However, the stretchy material which on the one hand is what makes the jersey very good is also what lets it down.

The sizing comes up quite large, the cut is neither truly race focused or relaxed, and the high stretch material means full pockets sit low and slide around – especially when you ride out of the saddle.

Verdict

A good quality all weather jacket but due to the high stretch material means the sizing comes up large and the pockets slide around when full
