Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Pactimo Cascade jacket was almost a real winner, but it's let down by a few niggles. It's a versatile jacket with good potential for comfort during serious training. The snug fit and breathability are its biggest assets, but the windproofing is poor and it faces tough competition at the £100 price point.

Reasons to buy

    Nice materials

  • +

    Great slim fit

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Poor windproofing

  • -

    Single rear pocket

  • -

    Irritating seam on cuff
