Moa Othala review

Moa jacket, Lightweight jackets grouptest 2012 CA
Cycling Weekly Verdict

The cut is awesome and the crinkley fabric seems scratchy but in use is actually very soft. A baffle on the main zip offers extra protection from rain and wind.

    Fit not on a par with more expensive offerings

Sitting between the two price points, the Moa jacket offers a balance between the high and low-end jackets.

The breathability of the Mantodry fabric is simply superb and despite seeming a little scratchy at first touch it's plenty soft enough on the bike.

A baffle in front of the chest zip offers a bit of extra protection from wind penetration.

It doesn't fit quite as well as the Rapha but breathes better than all the sub-£60 jackets.
