Spoiler: I like the Velocio Recon Snap Jacket so much that it’s now my go-to coat, regardless if I am cycling around town or not.

Built with the cycling commuter in mind, or the person who uses their bike to bomb around town doing errands and getting to social events, the Recon Snap Jacket is brilliant in pretty much every single way, except two bug bears that I’ll get onto.
