Louis Garneau bills the Modesto 3 as its top-selling women's cycling jacket, and the reason is obvious. The combination of a wind- and water-resistant main body material and highly breathable paneling under the arms means it's more than enough jacket to see most cyclists through from November to March. It does sacrifice a bit of breathability compared to LG's more expensive models, but pound for pound it's virtually impossible to beat the Modesto 3's value in foul weather. As with its predecessors, the Modesto 3 is also cut more generously than those more expensive options, so it can accommodate insulating sublayers to keep you riding in the depths of winter. A less flattering fit is a small price to pay for a jacket that'll keep you off the indoor trainer and out on the road for longer.
