Barbour | To Ki To Bicycle Jacket

I've been jacket hunting again around the Barbour Factory. It's something I do often, searching through the rails of garments, looking for To Ki stuff mainly. 

The latest hunt was a successful one, with me finding this little gem. The To Ki To Bicycle jacket, from the Spring/Summer 2011 collection. The fit is bang on, and the price wasn't bad either. The thing with To Ki stuff is, it not only looks great but it's designed to fit the purpose. When my new road bike is up and running this will fit the bill brilliantly, classy in design, yet rugged enough to with stand daily use in all weathers when commuting or running errands around town. 

It's waterproof and it's got pockets in all the right places. Two Velcro fastening chest pockets, two zip closure chest pockets, a large pocket on the back with two zip closures and two hip pockets with press stud fastening. Safety is even thought of with a nice reflective strip on the back of the hood. Under the arm pits there are zip openings to let air in to stop you sweating, good idea if your commuting. It features a tail on the rear of the jacket for added protection and elasticated draw strings on the hood, middle hem and bottom hem.
