The Daily Telegraph: “The film fabric can achieve optimal breathabilty and waterproofing, but is also a reflection innovation”

The Proviz REFLECT360 Plus Cycling Jacket is the more ‘technical’ version of the highly successful original REFLECT360 Cycling Jacket launched in 2014. This version has been designed using a highly technical film to ensure higher rates of breathability (10,000gm/24hr) and waterproofing (10,000 M/M)  while not losing any of the incredible reflective capability of our unique, upgraded reflective material (CE EN 20471 certified) that made the original version a worldwide success and sold in over 70 countries.

The REFLECT360 cycling jacket incorporates a much more tailored fit and uses a unique lighter weight material to help ensure cyclists, who like to push things a little bit harder, to stay cool. The ‘through-flow’ extra ventilation is still achieved using the same effective shoulder/back vents that allow air to escape without letting in any rain water. Simply open up the front zip vents to achieve maximum ventilation. During winter, these can be kept closed and double up as watertight pockets. The jacket also incorporates an inside chest pocket and large lower back pocket to store any extra layers or a map. A newly incorporated raglan sleeve design also helps to give a superior range of motion and room around the shoulders and upper back.

About the fabric: The fabric used for the REFLECT360+ range is designed by Proviz and is highly technical. A brand new film fabric is used to achieve the increased breathability and waterproofing required which is then sealed to our special reflective material. During daylight it is a modest grey colour. At night, when the fabric picks up an external light source, eg vehicle headlights, it gives ‘astonishing reflectivity’ (quote: Cycling Active Magazine). The material is CE EN 20471 certified.

REFLECT360 Plus Jackets

The Material

Utilising millions of tiny, highly reflective glass beads, the innovative material used for the REFLECT360 Plus Cycling Jacket is highly breathable (10,000gm/24hr) and exceptionally waterproof (10,000mm). The inner seams of the jacket are taped too, to prevent water getting in at sewing lines.

The Lining

The REFLECT360 Plus Cycling Jacket has a soft cotton mesh lining which acts as a climate control mechanism. The mesh increases airflow by maintaining separation between your skin/shirt and the outer layer of the jacket. This allows your body to maintain a more consistent comfort level, without the need to constantly add or remove layers.

Pockets

The REFLECT360 Plus Cycling Jacket incorporates two outer chest pockets, one inside chest pocket and one large back pocket, so you will not struggle to find somewhere to put the items you need for your ride. The outer chest pockets also double as additional vents to help cool you down on warm days.

Cuff

This innovative jacket features hard wearing cuffs with hook and loop attachments. These can be easily adjusted by the wearer to suit their size and specific requirements. Keep them loose during the spring/summer to facilitate airflow, or tighten them up to keep out cold, wintry weather.

Adjustable Waist

As with all Proviz kit, our focus is to keep you safe on the road, but we never feel that this should come at the expense of performance or comfort. Use the elastic pull cord and plastic fasterner to fit the REFLECT360 Plus Cycling Jacket to your body shape.

Under Arm Ventilation

Perfect for warmer days and intensive road training sessions where you are sure to work up a sweat, the REFLECT360 Plus Cycling Jacket features 30cm zips under each arm which can be opened to increase air flow and cool you down.

Shoulder/Back Ventilation

Every cyclist gets hot across the shoulders/upper back, even on cold winter days. To combat any discomfort caused by this, we’ve built in an extra ventilation flap in the back of our REFLECT360 Plus Cycling Jacket which will let hot air out but won’t let any inclement weather in.

Zip Garage

Another feature expressly included to keep you comfortable in the REFLECT360 Plus Cycling Jacket on cold days is the zip garage, which helps to protect against neck chafing when your jacket is fully zipped up.

Waterproof Zip and pulls

It’s a simple little feature that really makes a difference! The full length storm zip on the front of the REFLECT360 Plus Cycling Jacket is fully waterproof and reflective. Not a drop of water will get in. Handy zip pulls come as standard to help on those cold days when gloves are needed.

Micro-Fleece Collar

Staying safe on your bike during the dull days and long, dark winter evenings should not have to mean a compromise on comfort. Our REFLECT360 Plus Cycling Jacket features a micro-fleece lined collar for extra warmth and comfort during colder months.
