Test: Finisseur Pro Jacket Black Women
High-quality technical fabrics and a women’s specific cut are the calling card of this Finisseur jacket from the Pro range. Designed for temperatures between 2 º to 12 º C, its windproof fabric is also waterproof, and like all the garments in the Pro range, its character is performance-oriented, with a sober and elegant aesthetic.
Protection from the elements
The first thing that strikes you about this jacket when you put it on is its cut, which at first doesn’t seem overly feminine, but once it’s on, it fits perfectly to the waist and hips. The black colour and red detailing on the cuffs and inside collar only accentuate its competitive nature. It is a sober jacket that feels lightweight and relies on the high technology of its fabrics for its performance.
The fabric used, created by specialist manufacturer Pidigi, combines 86% polyester with 15% elastane, but it is its 231g Zero Wind membrane that, despite its light weight, provides remarkable wind protection. The Zero Wind membrane allows sweat to be wicked away from the inside and provides protection from wind and rain. Although it is not 100% waterproof, it has a resistance to the equivalent pressure of an 8-metre column of water before water starts to enter the interior, resulting in very good protection against water.
more comfortable and safer. The front zip is lined with fabric to improve protection against wind and cold, and the collar area has an internal flap to improve insulation, which in turn closes on the outside to conceal the zip carriage.
The three back pockets are flared, making it easy to keep items securely in place and prevent them from slipping out easily. A reflective Finisseur logo adorns the central pocket, while three icons symbolising the brand’s slogan “Never Look Back” are also reflective on the upper back panel, as well as a small reflective detail on the side.
For uncompromising performance
With a very subtle but effective feminine pattern and top quality technical fabrics, this women’s Finisseur Pro jacket has everything you need to ensure comfort and warmth on your rides. It has a slim fit, so it’s clearly performance oriented, and its Zero Wind fabric with membrane will wick away body heat and sweat when we increase the intensity. In fact, we tested it at temperatures at the upper end of its thermal range of use and did not notice any excessive heat sensation. It is not, however, a garment designed for very low temperatures, but we can always combine it with different types of vests to adjust to the environmental conditions. If you want to use it on colder days, you can wear it with a jersey such as the Core Thermal long sleeve jersey from the same brand.
In short, it is a garment designed for demanding, performance-oriented cycling, with sober aesthetics and enough technology to forget about it and enjoy cycling.
