Great value lightweight jacket that you could also ride in year-round
With only one rear pocket and no hood, the Pace 3×3 stays light and compact for pack stuffing, but doesn’t compromise on waterproofing.
It was clearly designed by people who ride in the rain and cold. Pace started with a great fabric — eVent is well known for its waterproofing and breathability — and maximised its performance with those clean lines.
On the bike, large Velcro tabs on the wrists were easily pulled tight by gloved hands, as was the large main zip puller. To reduce draughts, the high collar could be snugged up tight one-handed, but we did miss adjusters on the elasticated hem.
We also missed a hood on occasion, and a few testers pointed out the slightly rough finishing around the Velcro wrist tabs, which looked like they wouldn’t take a lot of abuse before coming away.
At £99 the Pace 3×3 is a great value lightweight jacket that you could also ride in year-round.
