    Recently had my birthday and one of the family members struggling to think what to get me decided on a Halfords gift card. My old Planet X jacket has recently bitten the dust so I nipped into my local store in hopes of seeing a jacket but to no avail. Not much stocked in the Doncaster store so I've had a look online and spotted a Dare2b Ilume jacket reduced to £25
    http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/...454&langId=-1&productId=1341961&storeId=10001 Does anyone have this or know of anyone with one? Looked online but I can't find any reviews? If not can anyone recommend a jacket that's available in halfords? Cheers

    I’ve recently replaced my ( worn out ) Proviz reflect 360 jacket, with this. It’s every bit as good, and cost less.

    Cheers @Racing roadkill they didn't have these in store when I visited, just read through the reviews looks a decent jacket. The only negative I've heard is that it isn't that breathable how do you find the jacket? 9 times out of 10 I'll be using this for commuting a 20 mile round trip
     
  4. It’s not terribly breathable, I’ll grant you that. But if you open the ( generous ) vents on it, it’s not too bad. And it is very highly visible, has lots of places to stash stuff, and works well if it’s raining. For a 20 mile commute, it would be fine, in my experience.
