Christy Jwrote a review of Mavic Bellissima Women's Jacket on March 16, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
There are very few jackets for women that really hit the mark on wind protection, fit, and not looking like polly pocket vomited color patterns all over it. A surprise win for Mavic since their specialty has always been wheels, but not a departure from the quality they are known for.
The thing I love most about this jacket is the sleeve length. I'm tall and lanky, so smalls are usually where I find myself, but they always lack in ample wrist coverage. Not so with the Bellissima. The zippered stash pocket with a wallet and attached leash make it easy to stuff all the goods you need in one place, without the worry of losing your credit card or cash for that much needed post ride Americano.
Despite the jacket being white, it doesn't hold onto dirt and hasn't turned that odd yellow color whites tend to turn after a few washes.
