Madison Stratos


Price as reviewed:

This product is featured in: Lightweight rain jackets grouptest.

At the same price as the Ride jacket, the Stratos is a very different jacket.

A thicker, more water resistant fabric makes it a bulkier garment overall but the flipside is improved rain repulsion.

Mesh-lined openings ensure the garment can breathe while a thin fleece lining on the collar maintains a better seal in cooler conditions.


The women's version doesn't have a huge amount of room for the bustier physique but on more lithe bodies, the arm shaping and lack of excess material elsewhere prevents flapping.
