The Mavic Espoir winter jacket is one of our favorites thanks to a very nice cycling fit and classic styling. We find the Espoir will keep you warm and comfortable in a wide temperature range from slightly below freezing up to about 50ºF which is the majority of most folks' cold-weather riding conditions. Best of all, you get a quality fit and material at a super friendly price.
Mavic uses a Warm Shell fabric which is medium weight and wind-blocking with a fleece lining. A nice addition this year is three external back pockets so you can reach for gels, blocks or bars in mid-pedal stroke. The Espoir has an excellent fit with a long back and long arms. Ergo cuffs make for a perfect glove/jacket interface.
