Cycling Weekly Verdict

Offering great protection from the wet in a package that's more breathable and closer fitting than a traditional hardshell, La Passion's PSN LS Rain Jersey offers a low cost entry into the world of softshell jackets. That said, breathability isn't quite as high as some other softshell jackets, which does limit its scope of use a little. That said, those other softshell jackets are much more expensive and the breathability can be mitigated by using a quick wicking baselayer.

La Passione’s PSN LS Rain Jersey is designed as an alternative to traditional hardshell rain jackets, promising better breathability and a stretchy, close fitting cut. 

This kind of softshell construction is now commonplace across essentially all the best winter jackets but unlike these, the PSN LS Rain Jersey forgoes any form of fleecy insulation, making it best suited for wet and mild conditions.

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
