Cycling Weekly Verdict

Although the Endura Pro SL 3-Season Jacket might look a little over-engineered with its wide array of zips, these combine to provide unrivalled levels of ventilation in a winter jacket and - far from being a faff - proved quite straightforward in use. Thanks to the removable inner gilet / vest, the Endura Pro SL 3-Season Jacket can be used in temperatures down to 3°C / 37°F without a baselayer and the price is extremely competitive against the likes of Castelli, Assos and Rapha. There are a couple of niggles regarding the pockets and the main zip, but this pales in comparison with the overall standout performance of this jacket.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Unrivalled ventilation

  • +

    Super warm - and detachable - inner vest

  • +

    Huge temperature range

  • +

    Highly water-resistant weatherproof construction

  • +

    Reflective detailing

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Tapered rear pockets are a little small

  • -

    Front zip isn’t two-way (unlike the vent zips)

  • -

The descriptively (if not imaginatively) named 3-Season Jacket sits at the pinnacle of Endura’s winter clothing range, benefiting from top-end fabrics and all the construction-wizardry the Scottish brand can throw at it. 

Although the Endura Pro SL 3-Season Jacket does still rank highly for warmth, the real party-piece is the breathability and its capacity to quickly dump heat when working hard - and then just as quickly seal everything back up for cooler and less intense periods. Endura’s 3-season offering boasts versatility not often seen across many of even the best winter cycling jackets
