There are some impressive statistics on this rain jacket from new British brand Soar: waterproof up to 20,000mm per 24 hours and breathable for 70,000g/m2 per 24 hours (granted, that probably means absolutely nothing to you, but google ‘breathability ratings’ and you’ll find that’s pretty good). The Ultra jacket doesn’t make that annoying shuffling noise like many lower quality polyester jackets, and it has a really well-crafted, slim-fitting shape. Furthermore, the sleeves have a good tight fit, and the back pocket will easily store a phone, keys and a gel. With a good base layer underneath this’ll do a fine job for all but the coldest days of what is usually a damp and mild British winter.

220 Triathlon Magazine — Ultra Rain Jacket
When I saw the tailoring on the Ultra Shell jacket I couldn't resist. It takes waterproofing to a new level, yet the Japanese fabric is so breathable, it's perfect over my new t-shirt or over a warmer shirt. It's destined to become my year-round go-to jacket. If it rains, the draw cord hem keeps me dry and a large rear pocket holds everything I need.

The Ultra Jacket is incredibly lightweight and breathable. Really high spec piece of kit. I have the yellow version. Unlike most it keeps body temperature at the right level, whilst also keeping you safe!
