    This jersey is utterly brilliant. I have never worn such a wind-proof garment whilst cycling, with the UK weather being so changeable this jersey is a fantastic addition to my wardrobe. Water beads on the surface and wind has no way in. I also find the jersey very good at regulating my temperature, so usually only needs a base-layer underneath. The fit would allow for thicker base-layers or a jersey to be worn under this garment, I think a merino jersey worn under the Josette would get through all but the coldest days. Construction is top quality and the looks are understated but also just different enough to stand out from the crowd. I don't have any criticism so far.

    I have enjoyed wearing this jersey.recently.paired with the Castelli Nanoflex armwarmers. The windproofness is excellent and light rain has beaded on the surface well.
    The flap over the pocket is good in wet weather but you need a pump _20cm otherwise it will poke out and water may ingress anyway. Fitting is on the slim side, so order larger if on the cusp of sizes.

    Would prefer jersey not to be black for visibility purposes but understand from Remy of CdC that the material is only available in this colour and reflective material is added on the rear. I would like to see matching CdC arm-warmers to set off the jersey rather than to mix brands. Will look into wearing deeper into winter with another jersey over the top for warmth and helping to keep core warm.

    £139 is a lot on money and with lack of armwarmers and black the only colour would rate at 4.5 stars, but half stars not an option!

    I was after an alternative to the gabba and after reading the reviews online this seemed like the one . I've worn it from 6-15 degrees and it's been perfect matched with a set if water resistant arm warmers . On a recent wet club run others were layered up and either hit or cold .. With just the jersey and base later I was perfect . Since buying mine another 2 club mates have bought one also.

    I was wondering how to keep warm and dry in the autumn/winter without wearing too many layers or losing and I came across the Josette. After being bemused by the Cafe du Cycliste logo, it was time to get down to some serious research. All the review that I read praised the jersey but was it really worth the price? I took the plunge and have not been disappointed. It fits well, the sleeves are a good length allowing plenty of overlap with arm warmers. The zip is robust and waterproof and the pockets are more than adequate; they won't take a rolled up rain jacket with the flap down - but I have found that I don't need one for the average 6 mile each way commute. The wind and waterproofing was felt on my first rainy ride; while my arm warmers eventually became soaked and my arms colder, my torso was fine. The underarm Roubaix fabric wasn't a source of damp or cold. I have a Gabba and I prefer the Josette for the fit and the feel of the jersey; I would have worn the Josette for the Etape Pennines but didn't want to put pin holes through the fabric! The jersey gets a bit too warm over 15-17 degrees C but is perfect for autumn mornings. I haven't yet worn it in very cold weather and am looking forward to seeing how comfortable it is with a thermal top underneath when the weather is very cold. I recommend the Josette.

    This is a fantastic piece of kit. Not Only does it look the 'biziness' but it also feels amazing and performs amazing.

    Big words but I've used this from the commute to a century sportive and my only concern is wearing it out!!!

    It can handle a variety of weathers but also coupled with arm warmers and layers underneath - it can be worn all day!!!

    No regrets.
