Product Description

The Proviz Switch jacket is a dual-layer, reversible garment that can be worn either way to give cyclists two options, one for day and one for night.

By day, the stylish and understated black material will keep you warm and dry. When riding in the dark, you simply switch the jacket round to enable the reflective material to reflect back artificial light from street and vehicle lights in order for your position to be more clearly identified on the roads. It also has a perforated back to aid with making the jacket as breathable as possible.

Two side pockets and two separate side vents help to keep the air flowing between the layers.

About the fabrics: The fabrics used for the Switch range were chosen specifically to make the Switch cycling jacket extremely versatile. The reflective material used is the same as the highly popular REFLECT360 range and it is certified to CE EN 20471 standard.   


The Material : 
The dual layer, reversible material gives you two jackets in one. Utilising millions of highly reflective beads on one side gives an almost ghostly appearance at night and black on the other to be understated during the day. The dual layering gives you exceptional waterproofing.

Pockets : 
Two side pockets give ample storage space for all your needs.

Cuff : 
A secure elastic cuff helps to keep the wind and rain out on those harshest winter days.

Side ventilation : 
Unzip the side vents to allow some extra flow through the jacket on those hotter days during spring summer. They can also double up as extra pockets during the winter months.

No breathability

This jacket fits lovely, feels lovely. Unfortunately as soon as you start cycling and getting warm you end up leaking wet where the sweat or condensation ended up leaving me with soaking wet arms. For a specific cycling jacket it’s trerrible, unless maybe it’s an expensive waterproof jacket you require to commute where perhaps you arent working up much body heat. Such a shame as it’s an expensive waste of time, unless you want a sauna as you cycle.

Windproof Jackets Guide

 

Windproof Jackets Guide

When the mercury drops most people turn to putting to layering up to keep warm. However, when you’re cycling the last thing you want is to feel like the Michelin man, bound up, inflexible and uncomfortable. As you ride you’ll get warm very quickly, wearing all those layers will make you sweaty.

Why not choose a windproof cycling jacket instead? They’re ideal for cold dry winter days with most offering some type of light rain protection as well. Windproof jackets tend to be lighter than a waterproof model and are much more breathable.

You can also check out our waterproof cycling jacket guide if you’re planning to ride in the rain. By the end of our windproof cycling guide, you should have all the info you need to buy the right jacket.


Types of Windproof Jacket

Packable Windproof Jacket
| Spring & Autumn

For cool rather than cold rides, a packable windproof jacket may be all you need to keep the chill off. These jackets are very lightweight and are usually made of a single layer of fabric. They’re only a simple barrier between your skin and the elements.

However, these jackets usually have good breathability to stop you from feeling clammy on the inside. Even if it rains, a packable will dry quickly. Most can be rolled up into a small package and will fit in a spare jersey pocket.

Lightweight windproof jacket

Softshell Windproof Jacket
| Spring, Autumn & Winter

Softshell windproof jackets have been gaining popularity for a few years now. They’re heavier than a packable to block more wind and are smooth against your skin for a comfortable feel.

Softshell jackets can be worn over a base layer or a jersey on colder rides without the need for multiple layers to keep you warm. Many are treated with water resistance for light rain protection making them a practical jacket for a wide range of UK riding conditions. You can also pair a softshell with a lightweight packable waterproof jacket for maximum protection.

Fabric

The fabric is key to performance. Generally, the more you spend on a jacket the lighter and thinner the fabric will be. Breathability will improve as well, letting your sweat evaporate quickly.

Gore Windstopper is popular fabric laminating a lightweight membrane to the fabric. It’s designed to keep the wind out and will also help shed light rain too.

Other systems will include an inner lining, middle windproof membrane and then the outer layer, usually treated with DWR water repellency. This design keeps the wind out while staying breathable.

We’ve put together a technical fabric guide for clothing detailing the key fabrics from some of the biggest brands in the industry.

Gore Windstopper Jacket

Fit

Windproof jackets come in many styles, so choose the type best suited to your riding. If you plan on training or racing, then a tighter fit with minimal excess fabric will help prevent drag as you ride.

If you’re commuting or riding off-road then a loose cut with more freedom of movement is a good option.
