This One Ten Element windshell jacket is made from a stretchy translucent yellow fabric like the Santini. Venting is via underarm and side seam mesh panels and further mesh under a protective windstopper panel on the upper back. The cuffs and hem are elasticated, although they are not that tight. There’s a windproof backing and a garage to the zipper and the collar is high and lined, although again this is not a very tight fit.

There’s no stowage option, so you just have to fold the jacket down and stuff it in a jersey pocket. This results in quite a bulky package which will consume most of one of your three rear pockets.
