The Merlin Wear Sport thermal cycling jacket has been designed and constructed to protect you from the elements when you’re riding in cold weather conditions. With a substantial wind-stopping polyurethane membrane in the main fabric your torso will stay well-protected from the potential for wind chill while extended cuffs are designed to fully cover your arms even when you’re in an extreme cycling position helping to ensure there are no unwanted gaps between sleeves and gloves. A dropped tail helps to protect your lower back when crouched over your bike while three rear pockets and an additional zipped pocket provide plenty of storage space for your valuables. The Sport thermal cycling jacket also features a secondary fabric in strategic locations to greater improve breathability with both fabrics lightly fleeced-lined so you can be sure of a cosy and comfortable feel next to the skin.

The Merlin Wear Sport range features garments that have a more fitted cut for performance cycling and feature multi-fabric construction designs made from some of the best high-tech materials available.
Very good quality and fit for the price. For the winter months, a lighter or living color would be better. 6 stars :-)
Lovely colours, fits well and doesn't hinder you when riding.
42yrs old and this is my first review ever, just because I'm so impressed with this jacket, you will not find a better jacket for the money. Period. I just bought a second one for the future. Buy one size up.
Perfect addition to cycling gear for those 40 F days in the saddle. I went with others recommendation and sized up one from L to XL.
This is an overall high quality jacket. Well made and true to size. Love the extra long sleeves that can go under the gloves. Back zipper compartment is a bonus. Wish they make pants to go with the jacket.
Very warm for those cold rides. Good snug fit unlike some other winter gear which can be baggy
Good jacket. Fitting is a bit snug so size up a number from your usual size. Decent jacket for the price. Recommended.
Excellent quality, good fit, had to opt for larger size large was too tight.
This jacket is fantastic, it fits really well and the quality is very good.
Great value, comfy and warm!
So far overall happy with this purchase. Looks good and great fit with good cold weather protection.
Terrific jacket. I'm 5'7" and the medium fit is perfect. I've worn this down to about 35 deg F (with several layers underneath) and was very warm.
Very good protection in cold days but a little loose fit.
Excellent top, fit is very good, well made item, no need to spend loads on big brand names. Once again excellent service from Merlin.
This jacket is simply amazing. Very good fit, tasteful minimalist design, functionally superb, and just overall great value for money. I have ridden it now on several occasions here as fall transitions into winter and it has served me well. It blocks the tyrannical Chicago wind well, and the fleece keeps me warm. The cuffs are well-designed, and the front side zippers help regulate tempeature when the weather warms up. The back pockets are amply sized and the zipped back pocket works well. A minor request in the next upgrade would be to have bigger zippers or at least ones easier to open/close with gloved hands. Other than that I am perfectly satisfied with it.
Great quality materials. Fit is good. Works well to stop cold winds. No need to spend a lot more on branded clothing.
Excellent quality, but the fit is a bit more tight than other Merlin Wear clothes
Excellent jacket, fit is very good. Has kept me warm on the winter commutes
This jacket is superb!
It will handle temperatures below 5c, if worn with a couple of baselayers and a long-sleeved jersey underneath. I found I started to feel the cold when temperatures got near freezing though.
The three pockets on the back are plenty big enough to carry everything you'll need for a day on the bike. Including a rolled up waterproof jacket.
The fit is snug; figure-hugging raceware snug. I have very broad shoulders, so often find the sleeves on long-sleeve tops and jackets on the short side, but these are perfect. It is also long enough at the back so it doesn't ride up. I am 6' tall with a 42" chest and slim build. The XL (the size I usually buy for cycle clothing) fits like a glove.
This is the best bit of kit I have bought this winter!
Another good fitting thermal jacket with smart price point, used in conditions down south circa 2 > 3 degree C and it is nice and snug and warm.
Good value jacket, warm and kept out the wind and showers on my latest ride.
Nice quality product at a great price. Definitely order up one size from your normal. I'm 6' 3 , 88 kilos and definitely needed the 2XL (I originally ordered my normal XL size , it was a snug 'race fit' but the body length was really too short. I usually place a lesser value to the body height sizing and concentrate on the chest and waist sizes chart : My mistake, in this case it really made a difference to the overall fit).
Excellent piece of kit. Utterly windproof and very comfortable. Unbeatable at this price - better than much more expensive brands.
Took a chance on the house brand jacket and am really impressed. I've worn it a few times now and was it was perfect with a base layer down to about 35F. Good wind protection, breathes well, nicely fitted, and bonus features (secure pockets, wind stopping flap behind zipper, reflective bits). Also great that it is black to hide the occasional road spray.
5 stars for the jacket itself: This seems to be made of sturdy construction and looked sharp. 4 stars for the sizing chart: I am a large in all my Merlin apparel but for some reason this jacket seemed to run a bit small. I think it might have to do with the thicker and less elastic fabric or the fact that the garment is sized without consideration for a layer underneath. Either way, I would definitely take your normal jersey size for Merlin wear and go up one before purchasing.
