A slightly longer drop tail with three deep rear pockets gives great protection for the lower back. The size of the pockets allows you to store all your ride essentials and extras you may wish to carry in winter. This included rain jackets, two inner tubes, CO2 canisters, nutrition, phone and wallet. There is also the added addition of a smaller zipped pocket for storing valuables.
The FS260’s sleeves have plenty of length, allowing for extended periods of time in the drops with the arms fully bent. An elasticated cuff prevents the sleeves riding up and exposing the wrists to wind chill.
All in all, the Endura FS260 Pro Roubaix jacket is a great winter jacket. Due to its water resistance and sweat wicking properties, it can be used as a mid layer in deeper winter.
