Draught exclusion is still good, though. Velcro straps on the wrists mean the sleeves can be easily adjusted to suit bulky winter gloves, and the neck has a drawstring to keep the cold out. A large pocket on the rear and a smaller, mobile phone-friendly pocket on the front with a loop on the back for an LED light add practicality, while myriad reflective graphics aid safety.
Great for the commute

If you’re looking for a lightweight, packable jacket for those drizzly tempo sessions, then look elsewhere. If, on the other hand, much of your training includes the daily grind to work and back, then the Prime could be just the ticket.
For commuters and leisure riders alike, Madison’s sub-£70 jacket ticks plenty of boxes. There’s enough weight to keep out the wind and offer a little warmth, but not so much that it ever feels heavy or restrictive.
The cut leans as much towards relaxed riding as its insulating qualities, the mesh-lined jacket giving a comfortable, rather than sporty, fit.
