"I bought this Jersey at the start of the year to deal with the cool Spring conditions faced both on my commute and on my leisure rides. It does it's job well and keeps my core temperature up. I've started wearing it again this Autumn and it is still going strong. It deals well with light rain showers and doesn't soak up large amounts of water. Light winds are not a problem for the jersey, however on especially cold mornings a gilet is required to take the edge of the wind. On the rare occasion the sun makes a surprise Autumn/Winter appearance it can get a bit warm but opening the zip soon cools things down again. Pockets at the back are good with some nice details such as the middle pocket protecting it's contents from moisture.
I'm 5'11" with a 30" waist and weigh 75kg, the medium size fits me well. I have to tug the jersey down at the back occasionally but riding with a backpack tends to cause this issue with all jerseys."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit

This or Windslam Robaix for winter?

Looking for a winter jacket/jersey for cycling in London and I don't know whether to go for this or the dhb Long Sleeve Windslam Roubaix? It sounds that this jacket is warm but it's doesn't claim to block the wind like the Windslam and in my experience it's the icy wind in Winter that really leads to cold limbs.

Hence I'm leaning toward the Windslam Roubaix but want to double-check my assumptions?
I'd go for the Windslam if you are only going to have one bit of kit for the winter as it introduces a windproof element. The momentum could be coupled with a windproof gilet for a more flexible approach to keeping the wind off your torso.
