Madison describe their Stellar jacket as 'resetting the standard for commuter jackets'. And we find that claim hard to dispute, especially at prices like this.
It's fully taped and waterproof, windproof and highly breathable, whilst the tailored cycling-specific fit combines practicality with comfort and no little style.
The Stellar has an elongated drop tail to maximise your protection against dirt and spray from the road; it tucks up and out of the way with ingeniously hidden magnets when you're off your bike. With no mesh lining, it's lighter and less bulky. The articulated arms ensure a great fit and the extended cuffs make sure your hands and wrists stay protected from the elements.
Whopping great reflective panels wrap around the arms and lower back to make you dazzling visible by night. The large zipped rear pocket is spacious enough for all your valuables whilst the accessible hip pocket lets you get at the more urgent items quickly. Finally, a rear LED light-clip allows you to attach your rear light at optimised height for extra visibility.

Madison started as a company way back in 1977 as a small bike shop based in North West London. Since then, that single shop has evolved into one of the UK's top distributors of bicycle parts and accessories, responsible for getting dozens of cycling brands to retailers.
Aside from all the other brands they sell, Madison's own brand of cycling kit has become one of the most trusted and widely-recognised names in cycling. Their original niche within the mountain biking world has broadened to cover all cycling disciplines, including road, commuting and touring - and their commitment to female cycling has accelerated so fast that eventually we could no longer resist!
Madison gear is hard wearing, well priced and beautifully designed too, with a strong, feminine design thread running through the whole range. It's great kit at great prices.
