The top layer of your cycling outfit is an important choice that is determined by the weather and the type of riding you expect to do as much as personal preference.
The right jacket enhances comfort on a ride and can keep you on your bike all year round, whatever the weather. Of course, when it's raining you want a waterproof cycling jacket and most people will have a compact, packable and lightweight one for light showers and emergency use and a heavier, fully waterproof and thermal jacket for the colder weather.
Breathability is as important as waterproofing, and is what sets the expensive models apart from the rest. The better the breathability is without compromising rain proofing, the faster moisture will be released away from your body, reducing overheating and allowing your layering system to regulate body temperature. Look out for high-tech fabrics such as Gore-Tex and PTFE for the most breathable and waterproof results, and rely on quality brands such as Gore Bike Altura, Endura and Assos.
