AGU Valero Softshell Jacket
For nearly 50 years the Dutch AGU company has been producing pro-quality cycling clothing, including outfitting the powerhouse Rabobank team, and their craftsmanship and know-how are evident in the AGU Valero Softshell Jacket. The Dutch certainly are familiar with rainy, blustery weather and this windproof, water resistant jacket is just the ticket for inclement days. Featuring specially designed ventilation on the back, likened to gills on a fish, you'll be comfortable no matter the level of exertion while a fleece-lined collar ensures your neck stays cozy as the temperature drops.
  • Nylon shell is both windproof and water resistant
  • Ample ventilation on back keeps you comfortable even during hard efforts
  • Windproof strip behind zipper helps keep the elements at bay
  • Fleece-lined neck keeps you warm and cozy
  • One large zippered rear pocket provides ample room to carry ride essentials
  • Silicone gripper at waist keeps jacket perfectly positioned
  • Reflective accents on front and back increase visibility in low-light conditions

Comments about AGU Valero Softshell Jacket:

Nice looking jacket, had it fit I would have kept it. It has a styling bead across the back just below the shoulders that doesn't stretch with the rest of the jacket. That's the reason the jacket was returned. Otherwise nice look, finish and fit.

Comments about AGU Valero Softshell Jacket:

Purchased this on clearance at an unbelievable value .... Perfect for the colder weather as a top layer. Rode yesterday with temps falling into the low 30's and snow starting......was perfect with the basic three layers....UnderArmour base, a long-sleeve thermal jersey, then this jacket. I read the reviews and went with a Large.....I'm 5'9" and 165 and this fits perfectly. Very well made and the style is awesome.

    Comments about AGU Valero Softshell Jacket:

    This is a great jacket, competitive with some that cost double or triple the price. It's not the heaviest jacket around, though it blocks wind and has a fleece-lined neck, so with some insulated base layers I expect it will get me through all but the worst winter weather here in NYC.

    It could use some more venting in addition to the vents on the back shoulder, particularly pit zips, and another back pocket or a chest pocket, but I'm extremely happy with it so far. The material is very nice.

        Have been wearing the past couple of weeks. You can layer underneath. Yesterday, did a 64 mile benefit ride and wore regular cycling jersey and long sleeve polypro underneath and it was about 32 when it started at 8:30am. Perfectly comfortable but not too hot. Great by itself with a light shirt on when I would say 40 and above. A great value.

          Excellent value, but runs tight

          Comments about AGU Valero Softshell Jacket:

          Designed by a seasoned Dutch company - so, it's a well-constructed jacket. Nice vents, lightweight, and it kept me toasty from 40F with one baselayer. The construction is excellent, and little clever details added to my delight: a nifty angled rear zipper that follows the arm movement more naturally, a headphone hole in rear pocket, fleece collar, arm hole seals and velcro straps, reflective logos everywhere etc. The jacket looks unique and stylish and is solidly made.
          Like any soft-shell jacket, it did not provide much protection from rain, but that was to be expected.
          A comment on sizing: the jacket is snug and closer to 'race-fit' and probably more suitable for a slimmer framed rider. While the jacket I ordered fit in the chest as advertised, it was too tight for in the arms and shoulders. One size larger was perfect. Since the same applied to an AGU jersey I ordered, I would recommend to folks with more muscular arms and shoulders to order one size larger than normal.

            I bought this jacket because of the price and it sounded like a great value. Well, hindsight 20/20, it was perfect! I ordered the 2xl, which was a tighter fit for a 2xl, but the jacket seriously performed. Even though it was vented, it was a superb wind blocker. I rode thru the entire winter, with temps at 3 degrees and real feel of minus 15. Now don't think for a minute the success was all this jacket. I was wearing 4 long sleeved wick-away layers and this jacket was the 5th and final layer. HOWEVER, since it blocked the wind, I was a happy camper in even the most extreme. It went thru a bunch of washings since I ride 3 times a week minimum. Looks as good as new. I would HIGHLY recommend this jacket. A few quirks? European zipper up front. The pouch zipper in the back closes uphill, so it feels like it is junky/clunky, but once you learn to zip uphill, all good. Actually thinking of buying another one. Definitely recommend!!

              Mix this with a base layer and a short sleeve cycling jersey and you're going to stay warm and toasty into the 30's. Keeps the wind (and rain) out and looks and fits sharply. No excess fabric flapping around in the wind with a nice and trim "race" cut. Highly recommend, especially when Nashbar is having a sale.

                  I wear a medium jacket and I ordered a medium size and it fits me well. Good wind protection, fits snug, and does not ruffle in the wind.
