The cut of Merino Membrane softshell jacket and vest is slim fit. Whatever Isadore jersey size you are used to wear, this product will certainly fit you in the same size. Short agresive anatomic cut in the front and enough protection on the back side with additional defender. Lycra ThermoRoubaix sidepanels offers enough elasticity. Ideally worn with long or short sleeve baselayer underneath.

  • top quality

    Leo Purcell, United Kingdom, 1.12.2017

    What I have come to expect from Isadore: great design with top quality materials, and full of the kind of detail that a premium product should deliver. For example, the little popper attachment that stops the jack billowing out like a parachute when riding with the jacket partially open. The overall fit is tight and snug so the jacket is big on insulation but small on drag. Love it.

  • Excellent gear for harsh conditions.

    Matthias, Germany, 25.11.2017

    This is a beautifully executed jacket with lots of well thought out details. Material is really soft on the inside with wind blocking and water repelling qualities regarding the outer side. As the temperatures did not reach sub zero since I bought the jacket I can not really tell about insulating capacities. But I assume that this garment will be a really good helper against all things cold and wet when beeing combined with a long sleeve base layer and mid layer. That´s the reason why I bought it one size bigger, especially because I´m between sizes L and XL at 180cm/85kg.

  • fantastic piece of kit

    David, Netherlands, 14.12.2016

    after two rides (at 8 degrees and 1 degrees celsius) i can safely say this is the best piece of cycling kit in my closet. at 8 degrees it was warm enough with just a baselayer, at 1 degrees i added a jersey. the fit is great, as is the attention to detail. well worth the money.

  • Great versatility and protection

    Igor Jurisica, Canada, 18.11.2016

    Excellent product for colder weather rides - great fit, excellent breathability, highly useful extended back flap. Highly recommended

  • Best Cycling Jacket I had a chance to try on

    Hrvoje, Netherlands, 9.6.2016

    Vary stylish and well made piece of cycling outfit. Quality is superb, I bought it at the end of the Spring so I still have not had a chance to wear it in the conditions and expose it to elements. I am more then satisfied with the looks and fit.

  • Milano – Remo

    Beat Weinmann ochs und junior AG, Switzerland, 20.3.2016

    Saturday March 19th... Genoa – we were riding and I was testing for the first time this season these super stylish bike clothes... It was the day of the early season classic Milano - San Remo and we went up from sea level to Il Passo del Turchino at 456m above sea level and later to 980m above sea level. The temperature was between 6 degree celsius, foggy and later at around 14 degree celsius at the coast. All others had to change the wind breakers and I just opened the Merino Membrane Softshell Jacket when needed and closed it again. I felt the entire day – as well when we were watching the race (standing around for an hour between riding) – perfect. The cut is just great, the functionality outstanding and the style fantastic. I was wearing the long sleeve jersey, the Thermo Roubaix Tight and the Merino Socks... Today March 20th the same thing again for a fast ride with some crazy Italians at the Ligurian coast and mountains...

  • Excellent jacket, performs above competition

    Ed Newey, Switzerland, 11.1.2016

    I’ve been riding with this now for a few months, and feel I have enough experience using it in enough conditions to write this. Overall it is an outstanding jacket that goes above and beyond the performance of others jackets I have tried. I’ll try to explain why. Firstly the fit and appearance: it’s a great sung race fit and no flapping, firm and comfortable without being too constricting. It has a simple pocket and zip section with everything you need (the watertight pocket has saved my phone many times). The rain flap down the back is great, and inside button on the robust zip allows you to open the jacket nicely on climbs to cool down (one of my favorite features). Next the ride; and the secret weapon in this jacket - the merino wool lining. This is a very unique ingredient and what makes it such a winner. It allows the jacket to keep in a good amount of heat in but combined with the clever mix of materials in different sections and very simple zip system (that allows you to open sections on the chest and side), it gives excellent breathability. This means that the range of conditions in which it can be used is astonishing. By just playing around with base layer combinations, I have worn this down to minus 3/4 (Longsleeve base, thermojersey and this on top and up to plus 8/9 (just a sleeveless base). For “mid range” ride of around 4/5 degrees, (with a chance of rain) I just wear sleeveless base and jersey with the jacket on top and it feels super comfortable against the bare skin on the arms. Most surprising is the performance in the rain and cold. In prolonged rain it does eventually get wet through (90 mins light rain) but that’s when the jacket really starts working, and the wool, breathability and wind stopping technology kicks in, to keep an amazing amount of heat inside. When the rain does let off, the jacket dries out quite fast. In the last few months of cold wet riding this has been my "go to" jacket for tempo or endurance pace, because it breaths and vents so well. I am also a big gabba fan but I have been taking this over the gabba in the last few months, because it offers more functionality in more conditions. The gabba is good in mild and changeable conditions but sometimes you can be left cold having to put on a “boil in a bag” wind stopper. I find other jackets can be too warm and as a result, I sweat too much. This jacket however, finds a great balance between warmth, breathability, wet weather protection and comfort. Plus it looks ace. Even compared to the Rapha soft-shell I would say this comes out on top because of how it functions, looks and price. I also have the short sleeve version of this soft-shell and that is brilliant in slightly milder temperatures (6-12 degrees) or you are doing a very hard threshold / interval session in cooler conditions. In summary 5/5 from me and goodbye gabba. Great job Isadore.

  • wow!

    Hans Luijendijk, Netherlands, 9.1.2016

    Best jacket ever! keeps me warm and dry...below 10 degrees and even better below 5!

  • everyone's eyes on you

    cem atiyas, Turkey, 31.12.2015

    it is a really great piece. usefull, chic, fashionable with a super fit and cut and ofcourse really keeps hot... on or off bike eveybody is turning heads second time for the jacket :) I feel comfortable and proud with that amazing jacket.

  • Really great product !

    Helmer Sørensen, Denmark, 19.11.2015

    I really like this jacket, fast delivery, great customer service and no problems at all. I highly recommend this product.

  • Great Piece of Kit!

    Mark James, United Kingdom, 27.10.2015

    Although the price might put you off somewhat you do get what you pay for ! You get a really well thought through versatile jacket that is very breathable,windproof and water resistant. The breathability of the jacket really helps when working hard and can be worn over a larger temperature range than most other jackets of this type. The fit is excellent and it feels lightweight and unobtrusive on the road. I found that the zipped rear pocket a bit fiddly and I would have a liked more rear vertical pockets but perhaps I'm a bit picky. Overall it's a really great jacket that can be worn over a huge temperature range. Oh and it also looks pretty cool too.

  • Best product ever!

    Hans Luijendijk, Netherlands, 13.10.2015

    extremely nice jacket, keeps me warm and dry. used it with rain and temp around 0, with only thermo shirt! Never had a jacket with such a performance! keep up the good work!

  • Extremely versatile

    Marcus Birke, United Kingdom, 6.5.2015

    Easily the most favourite part of my cycling wardrobe. Same high quality as all other Isadore products. Very versatile for termperatures round 10 degrees and below, way below. With the right base layer and/or long sleeve jersey beneath it makes a ride really enjoyable, even in the cold rain with a heavy head wind. And damn, does it make one look good...

  • My Favourite Jacket

    Kevin Finch, United Kingdom, 7.11.2014

    This jacket looks so good on that there is no way it should work so well. It's just brilliant. It's 5-8 degrees centigrade at night in the UK at the moment, sometimes with cold rain, and I wear this out on my night rides with a single base-layer, It keeps me dry and warm and fits like a glove. All the details are exactly right, the pockets are perfect for stowing essentials, phone and key. Thanks guys for making such cool gear, I really hope plenty of people discover what great clothing you make and what great value it is too. I'm looking forward to seeing any new stuff you come up with.

  • Exceptional service and product

    michael farrell, United Kingdom, 16.10.2014

    I bought this jacket for winter riding in the UK. I measured myself for extra small and the item was delivered very quickly. The communications from Isadore were very professional and helpful and the product is excellent quality. Having found that the jacket was too small, I exchanged for the small size and once again the service was perfect. The jacket itself is very high quality. It manages to combine excellent insulation in cold and windy weather with impressive breathability. It also looks great and can be worn off the bike. I am super impressed!

  • Angenehm und stylish

    Stephan, Germany, 31.3.2019

    Sehr angenehm zu tragen plus gute Ideen zu den Taschen (2x Reissverschluss, 1x offen). Lüftungsreissverschlüsse funktionieren auch prima. Ausklappbares Rückteil sehr sinnvoll. Bei 1,80m und 85kg habe ich XXL.

  • la veste idéale ?

    Alexandre, 10.2.2019

    je cherchais une veste softshell qui protège mais vraiment respirante. Je n'ai pas froid en général, mes vestes me tenaient trop chaud avec rapidement une forte humidité sous la veste (malgré les aérations). avec cette veste je transpire mais je controle correctement l'humidité. la coupe proche du corps et le style chic pour une veste sport. j'aime la grande poche sécurisée étanche avec des compartiments et la petite poche latérale pour mettre les gels. pratique aussi le bas pliable pour protéger des protections d'eau de la roue. bien aussi la petite pression pour limiter l'ouverture de la veste. je trouve les finitions tres bonnes. bonne protection sur les sorties humides (mais ce n'est pas une veste pluie) un reproche, la veste un à effet thermique moins efficace que les vestes softshell avec intérieur polaire. On a une sensation d'etre à la limite d'avoir froid à l'arret. pour moi elle est parfaite pour une utilisation 0c-10c par tous les temps.... avec ou sans vélo. elle est completée par un baselayer merinos. merci isadore... reste plus qu'un choix un peu plus grand.

  • Die perfekte Jacke für Radfahren im Winter

    Frank, Germany, 15.2.2018

    Ich habe mir diese Jacke für Radtouren im Winter gekauft und ich bin begeistert. Sie hält warm, ohne das man schwitzt. Bei leichten Minusgraden trage ich ein Langarmshirt darunter, ist es wärmer, reicht auch nur ein Langarm-Baselayer. Ich bin 1,78 m und wiege 73 kg, ich habe die Größe M genommen.

  • ... ein anderer Reinhard...auch aus Österreich

    Reinhard, Austria, 4.2.2018

    Zunächst in meiner "normalen Größe M" bestellt, habe ich die Jacke gegen eine "L" umgetauscht, damit auch mal ein Langarmtrikot (hier trage ich M) drunter passt (181cam, 76kg). Meine Bewertung für die Jacke ist ein bisschen durchwachsen. Temperaturmanagement: Top. Warm genug, um auch mal bei Minusgraden unterwegs zu sein (mit einem langen Baselayer und einem Langarmtrikot drunter), ausgleichend, wenn es ein bisschen wärmer wird und zur Not gibts ja noch Lüftungszipper. Wetterschutz: Gleich beim ersten Ausprobieren musste die Jacke etwa 50 Minuten Dauerregen über sich ergehen lassen. Die Ärmel waren schon nach 10 Minuten durch nass und nach ca. 20 Minuten hielt auch der Reißverschluss nicht mehr dicht. Also gut bei Wind und Wetter, aber richtig wasserdicht ist sie nicht. Schnitt: Größe L passt mir grundsätzlich gut - schön schmaler Schnitt. Die Ärmel sind allerdings nicht für die Haltung am Rennrad geschnitten und so schiebt sich die Jacke beim Radfahren etwas nach oben und wirft an den Schultern Falten (zumindest bei mir, der ich keine Herkules-Figur habe)... Fazit: Stoff super, Schnitt am Körper super, Wetterschutz gut, Ärmel/Schultern könnte besser sein...

  • Lieblingsteil

    Reinhard, Austria, 17.11.2016

    Mmn. gibt es keine schönere Jacke auf dem Markt. Sehr stylisch und dezent, mit schönen Details und hochfunktionell. Innen ist die Jacke angeraut, das Hautgefühl ist sehr gut. Das Material ist gut dehnbar aber nicht zu eng in der richtigen Größe. Vorne sorgen 2 Zipper für besser Belüftung wenn es einmal zu warm wird. Die Außenschicht hält leichten Regen und Sprühwasser gut ab. Die Taschen hinten schützen Handy und Wertsachen gut gegen schlechte Witterung und sind zum Teil mit Reißverschluss verschließbar - der Schnitt ist lang und schmal. Eine Jacke für viele Jahreszeiten, sehr variabel mit Base- oder Midlayern...auch gut für feuchte Bedingungen. Im Winter trag ich noch das Gilet über der Softhell - mein persönliches Lieblingsteil von Isadore.

  • Eine fantastische Jacke

    Bert Scharpenberg, Germany, 20.2.2016

    Eine tolle Jacke, die mich den kompletten Herbst und Winter über begleitet hat. Absolut wasserdicht, warm, aber ohne dass sich die Hitze stauen würde. Perfekt bei ca. 5-10°C mit einem langen Baselayer, bei Temperaturen darunter zusätzlich mit einem langen Jersey. Dabei liegt sie so dicht und komfortabel an, dass man sie kaum spürt. Nur zu empfehlen.

  • Sir Ridealot

    Christian Wüthrich, Switzerland, 2.12.2015

    It's the best bike jacket I ever owned. It has all merino advantages, no freeze, no stink. For me, in cold cold Switzerland it does a really good job down to 5°C, combined with a thick long sleeve merino base layer. Below I'd go with an additional jacket or layer. I didn't had to test it in full rain luckily but it was enough repellent in a foggy bike cheer. And overall: I makes me look best possible on the bike which is quite important too as I'm no longer the most handsome guy at 50. I'd buy it again!

  • Die Jacke hält was Isadore verspricht

    Christian Kürschner, Germany, 2.11.2014

    Habe die Jacke jetzt mehrmals bei richtigem Herbstwetter getragen und hatte zur Sicherheit eine Warme Fleece Jacke dabei, ich habe sie nicht gebraucht. Die Jacke ist obwohl sehr dünn absolut winddicht und warm und auch wenn es anstrengend wird gibt es keinen Schweiß auf der Haut. Ich würde sie wieder kaufen!

  • Really outstanding

    Georg Stockmann, Germany, 11.7.2014

    Chance for testing came earlier than expected, we had planned an overnighter into the alps but it was raining whole day with around 10°C. Jacket with a merino baselayer was the best decision - 100% waterproof and always warm even when sweatening in change of climbing and descending. Longflap-back is a very clever detail. Openings for ventilation are exactly there where you need them. Best combined with the Thermoroubaix Bibs. And after two days of riding you can walk into a bar without any worries ... Whole story here

  • Masterpiece

    Georg Stockmann, Germany, 22.6.2014

    This is really a masterpiece, looking happily forward to a cold and wet autumn. The style is great, the feeling is even better.

  • Very nice jacket, but not ideal when sweating a lot

    ewoud beirlant, Belgium, 15.11.2018

    This is the second year that I use this jacket for most of my autumn and winter rides. I love it for it's design, fit, windproofness and warmth. And it is effectively pretty waterproof, except for the sleeves. But I would not say it is very breathable. When riding at temperatures below 10 degrees it gets very wet very quickly on the inside. With the result that you get cold even after waiting for just one minute at traffic lights. This morning at 2 degrees and with a merino baselayer and merino longsleeve jersey underneath it took about 20 minutes of hard riding before sweat started to cumulate on the inside, causing me to feel cold at a later stage.

  • NOT that fantastic

    Esben Juste, Denmark, 23.12.2016

    I was looking forward to this! An expensive merino jacket with windbreaker, rainproof and breathable. What more Can you wish for when you live in Scandinavia and often ride you bike in winther? Well it is wind proof, the fit is nice, the design is cool, but it is not breathable at all. Riding at 4c for 1 1/2 hours and the jacket was more wet inside than outside. I was wearing a long sleeve merino layer underneath. So maybe it needs to be below 0 before I can use the if you sweat a lot buy something else or just ride in the snow.
