The Santini Vega Multi jacket is a winter jacket that's aimed more at filthy wet than freezing cold. Santini says it allows you to face the most challenging weather conditions and that's a pretty accurate description of what it does. It's made from waterproof Polartec Power Shield Pro and with its high collar and long tail flap it keeps out every last raindrop and basically leaves you with no excuses for not riding.

For deep winter we reviewed the Santini Vega Xtreme winter jacket a couple of years ago and included it in our Editor's Choice selection of the year's best products in 2018 – the Xtreme is aimed at temperatures from -8°C to 6°C while the Multi's range is 5°C to 15°C according to Santini.
