A great, versatile jacket that with a change of base layer will work from about 10°C right down to sub-zero temperatures.
Snug and warm collar
Wind and waterproof panels
Hard to access pockets
By Mike Hawkins
Steady evolution marks the changes for Le Col’s winter jacket and we’ve charted every version so far.
This year’s Mizuro gains minor alterations, with all of the details we liked in the B3 remaining, making this jacket a great choice when the mercury drops below double figures.
Front-facing panels block wind and water ingress, keeping the elements at bay while breathable, rear-facing panels stop the hard-working rider from getting too clammy.
Three rear cargo pockets give plenty of range for big base miles, though the outer two could perhaps be slightly easier to access — the upshot being that you’re unlikely to lose anything, particularly as there’s a zipped security pocket for valuables.
We love Le Col’s attention to detail. The collar is snug and warm; the reflective rear panels offer good visibility; and the construction seems very durable.
