Specialized Deflect Jacket
Wind and water resistant jackets become invaluable during to colder months. Combine them with a thermal inner and you’ll be set in all but the worst of conditions. However, as things warm up, a vest becomes more desirable. With the Specialized Deflect ‘hybrid’ jacket, you’ve got all bases covered. The lightweight woven polyester fabric offers a nicer feel than your typical waterproof fluoro jacket and the styling is more ‘trail friendly’ too. When you get too hot, unzip the sleeves and you’ve instantly got a lightweight vest. Other handy features include a rear zip that lets you access your jersey pocket and silicone grippers to prevent it riding up. Whilst it looks quite stealthy, Specialized has also included reflective trim to provide an element of safety after dark. Expect to pay $179 for this versatile item of clothing.
