Endura MT500 II jacket


Endura MT500 II jacket review


Price as reviewed:


Endura claims a monumental 60,000g/m²/24hr for the flagship three-layer waterproof Exoshell60 material that makes up the MT500; a breathability figure that comfortably blows just about every other fabric out the water.

>>> The best waterproof mtb jackets

Intelligently, Endura hasn’t just relied on the fabric performance for removing moisture; ventilation options are here in spades, with adjustable hem, cuffs and collar backed up by massive pit zips dropping to the waist.

Clammy cuffs cost the MT500 a point

The cut was excellent on the bike and a low backside gave great rear-end coverage, while the hood was generous and effective, with two types of volume adjustment available and a handy retainer to keep it in check when tucked away.

In fact the only feature we didn’t like was the internal Lycra cuffs — comfortable at first, but when they soaked up rain, which they invariably did when out for long periods, they felt clammy and took an age to dry.
