Pinkbike Awards 2015 - Best Gear Award
Best Accessory Award:
"I wore this in some fairly nasty weather, and it’s safe to say that this is the kind of jacket one could almost comfortably venture out into a hurricane with. The breathability was unbelievable. On extended climbs, both the pocket vents and the pit zips allowed for core cooling without sacrificing too much defense against whatever Mother Nature was throwing at me. The inner cuff with the thumb loops also helped keep the elements away from me, and all the zippers could easily be used with gloves on. Additionally, the jacket (despite the inner cuffs) could be put on or taken off relatively easily with gloves on."
"The best way to discover how well cold weather gear performs is to go for a long, hard ride on a the worst winter day of the year - which is exactly how Endura's MT500 jacket earned a nomination for Pinkbike's year-end awards. Endura builds mega durable soft goods and hails from Scotland, where winters are long and harsh. We expected a lot from their best waterproof jacket and that's what we received. Every seam is sealed, its ventilation strategy operates beautifully, venting enough air to keep its occupant dry, without throwing open the doors for Old Man Winter. The jacket's three-layer-laminate Exoshell60 fabric is pretty much the state of the art for breathable, waterproof fabric, which furthers its comfort levels under sustained efforts, and drawstrings are located in key places to customize the jacket's fit at the hood, waist, and lower seam..."
Descent World - MT500 Jacket II Review
"In my view this is a must buy as it not only looks great and fits really well, has awesome ventilation to keep you cool and dry and it’s a 4 season wet weather jacket with class leading breathability. I’d say it was a piece of riding kit that was a true investment that you be thankful you had bought. Lets face it; When the weather gets as wet as it does here it’s well worth the price tag I’d say."
Wide Open Mag's MT500 WP Jacket II Review
"What’s good about the Endura MT500? All the zips for one. There are two huge under arm zips to keep you cool and two huge breast pockets that also act as vents. Unzip them both and you’ll have air flowing nicely and the front and out the back to keep you well ventilated. The vents work well and mean you can run the jacket to keep dry when it’s a bit warmer than you’d usually want to add an extra layer. Keep the vents shut and you can store plenty of junk in the breast pockets... The real heavy hitter of the MT500 is the 18,000mm waterproof rating and 60,000g/m2/24hrs breath-ability rating. Numbers don’t mean much on their own – but they basically mean that the jacket is tough on rain and very breathable"
