Funkier WJ-1314 TPU Windproof Cycling Jacket
Funkier WJ-1314 TPU Jacket
This jacket from Funkier is both waterproof and windproof thanks to its TPU coated fabric. It features a full-length zip for temperature regulation and pockets on the front and rear for convenience. TPU fabric is created by laminating the membrane to high-performance textiles that are extremely breathable, then sealing them with an innovative solution for 100% waterproof protection. The TPU membrane contains microscopic pores, which are 1000 times smaller than a drop of water, but 100 times bigger than a molecule of moisture vapour. So whilst water droplets cannot penetrate the TPU membrane, moisture vapour can easily escape. Features: Quick Dry Active Protection Waterproof, windproof and breathable 1 back waterproof zipped pocket Inner lining in pocket Front and rear reflective piping TPU micro fleece collar lining Micro fleece warm breathable winter fabric Front vent zips for cooling 2 front pockets closed with zipper Raglan long sleeve TPU1314

About Merlin Cycles
This cycling deal was found at Merlin Cycles, one of the UK's most famous bike shops, located up North!
Merlin Cycles started life in 1993, founded by John Moss as a mail order Mountain Bike business ran directly from his spare bedroom in Chorley. Due to early growth, shortly afterwards he opened his first outlet in Ormskirk, and a few years later in 1998, the company grew into larger premises, moving to Leyland.
In the 1990's and early 2000's, Merlin were known for their ranges of mountain bike hardtails, released under the Rock Lobster and Merlin "Malt" brands. These steel and aluminium hardtails were designed in house, available as framesets or complete bikes, representing excellent value for money. The company was also well known for their handbuilt MTB wheels, which in my experience lasted for years without needing truing!
Merlin have always been competitive on pricing, particularly on suspension forks, brakes, wheels and groupsets, which continues to this day. Nowadays they have introduced road cycling equipment and clothing into their product ranges, due to the increase in popularity in this field, thus catering for a broader range of cyclists.
