New arrivals Part 1: Visvim Record jacket

I reckon this has to be one of the most under-rated jackets in the Visvim arsenal.

Light as paper, and so thin that you can stuff it into a little apple-sized drawstring bag attached to the inside of one of the pockets, it offers pretty decent showerproofing and a longer back to stop all that spray getting your bum wet while you're on the bike.

As well as that, you get the usual Riri zip affair, a cool little white elk zip pull and a couple of reflective bands on the left arm.

To top it all, it looks just as good on and off the bike, and if you're lucky, you might be able to pick one up for half the price of its Rapha contemporary, the Stowaway Jacket.

Although that would still make it a tough decision.
PS: It only looks like you're wearing a bin liner until the creases fall out, which on a good day with a fair wind will be something like ten minutes.
