Even when winter temperatures start to bite you'll still find yourself pushing the pace at times and so you need that perfect balance of warmth and breathability. Enter Sportful's incredible R&D Intensity Jacket.
So how does it keep you warm at slower speeds but at the same time stop sweat build up when the speed ramps up? Firstly, a Polartec® Alpha® lining is used, this remarkably light insulator holds in body heat with very little bulk needed, but at the same time, it's highly breathable to let sweat out. Secondly, Sportful deploys wind and water-repellent Nylon layers to the front panels, shoulders and sleeves that prevent cold winds and damp conditions from robbing you of warmth. Lastly, a highly breathable back panel reduces the pooling of perspiration, instead, it's drawn away from the body for incredibly dry comfort.
On a long climb or if the pace is particularly high then you'll benefit from the strategically placed side vents, that, when combined with the full front zipper, gives plenty of scope to dump heat from inside and introduce fresh air. Loading up for a day of riding is easy with the three back pockets offering up space for all your essentials and they're also highly reflective so rides finishing after dark are no problems when it comes to visibility.
