Le Col Sport Winter Jacket review

The Le Col Sport Winter Jacket delivers excellent wind protection and good attention to detail, but not quite the perfection we’ve come to expect from the West London company.

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Le Col Sport Winter Jacket is a lovely piece of clothing that will keep you looking good and feeling warm on long winter rides, but the constant riding up at the rear was an annoyance.

Yanto Barker has been a busy man this winter. Alongside setting up the new One Pro Cycling team, he’s been helping to design the new Le Col Sport Winter Jacket, and from what we’ve experienced, doing a pretty good job!

No winter jacket worth its salt would be complete without a decent helping of Windstopper fabric, and Le Col’s offering is no different. Effectively anything red you see in the pictures (as well as the black around the neck and shoulders) is pretty much impermeable to the wind, as well as providing enough water resistance to keep us dry from road spray flicked up from rear wheels.
