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.

Verdict

A great, versatile jacket that with a change of base layer will work from about 10°C right down to sub-zero temperatures.
