Giordana FR-C Windfront Light Jacket review

Giordana FR-C Windfront light jacket
Cycling Weekly Verdict

It's DWR coated for water repellence throughout; has standard pockets; an additional zippered security slot; fitted, thermal-Lycra cuffs; a snug hem that stays in place and a ‘just so' collar height to make a nigh-on perfect jacket.

We tested the full winter version of this jacket last year and loved it so we had high hopes for the FRC Windfront.

Thankfully, the superb fit is maintained and by replacing the super-warm HD44 fabric with a thinner HD44 Light version to repel wind, and placing simple thermal fabric elsewhere, Giordana has made an exceptional jacket for the British winter.
