What they say: Performs exceptionally well at retaining heat, even when wet
What we say: This is made from a blend of merino wool and polyester to take advantage of the former’s natural brilliance for thermoregulation and the latter’s ability to wick sweat away. Mesh panels on the back of the shoulders, meanwhile, further help your body maintain its optimal temperature.
The mix of materials used also makes for a silky-feeling, elasticated fabric that’s soft against your skin. And, thanks to the garment’s anatomical cut, it’s outstandingly comfortable. Designed to be worn in sub-zero temperatures, although we didn’t manage to test it quite as low as the -17°C Pactimo claims it will work in, we found this to be really effective on chilly night rides.
Available in sizes S-XXXL.
Conclusion: A pricey product perhaps, but one that does what it’s supposed to extremely well.
