Test: Finisseur Core Hybrid Jacket Women
Ready to withstand the cold and wind and with a water-repellent front, this women’s Finisseur Core Hybrid jacket is a sure bet to get you through the coldest months of the year. It is specifically designed for the female anatomy and has the same excellent value for money as the Core range.
Two fibres to tame the cold
The care taken in the design of this women’s winter jacket is reflected in the use of two different types of fibres in its construction. The Pidigi technical fabric, used on the majority of the jacket’s surface, protects against the wind thanks to its polyurethane membrane located on the inner side of the fabric and a Water Repellent outer layer, capable of resisting the pressure of 10 metres of water column. The back uses Carvico technical fabric, lighter and more elastic and with greater breathability, in a two-tone panel that includes a strip from the neck to the waist.
The collar of the jacket is high, designed to protect the neck from the cold and wind. The full-length CamLock zip, including the collar, has superior protection so that it doesn’t get in the way of your neck. The inside of this has a hypoallergenic lining to protect the skin from perspiration.
Convenient and visible
With a temperature range of 6-16°C and strategically used technical fabrics, the other features of this women’s Core Hybrid jacket are utility and comfort. The flared back pockets allow you to carry more stuff without it moving out of place, while the silicone strap around the waist also ensures that the jersey doesn’t move around when you’re pedalling.
The reflective motifs could not be missing in this garment designed for the less light days of the year. Both the R of the Finisseur logo on the central back pocket and the three Never Look Back logos, the Finisseur motto, reflect light to increase our visibility.
No need to be afraid of the cold on long outings
The combination of different fabrics in this winter jacket allows for the most protection against the elements in the front, always the most critical part, while at the same time having a rear part that is more heat transferable and more flexible for greater comfort. We also believe that, with the right underwear, it could even be used below the recommended temperature range.
We found this garment to be ideal for long rides, as it protects well, has good storage space in the back pockets and, above all, feels very comfortable and snug. And, as usual in the Core range, we get all this for a super low price.
Windproof and waterproof.
Blend of fabrics for increased performance.
Its high collar further enhances protection.
We would have liked to see a tighter fit at the sleeve cuffs.
