Daybreak Wind Jacket
It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Machines for Freedom here at the Competitive office after so many years of wishing for high-quality, impeccably styled, and still durably functional women’s-specific kit. And Machines brings that to every aspect of their business, offering a new take on women’s kit that puts women riders at the center as versatile athletes who demand the most out of their kit choices. Among those, the Daybreak Wind Jacket is one of the most versatile pieces available, defining that perfect balance between performance, fit, and style that we’ve come to expect with anything carrying the MFF label.
Made from lightweight yet protective fabrics, the Daybreak isn’t like any other jacket we’ve worn. Its tailored, streamlined fit reminds us more of our favorite long-sleeved jerseys while its balance of weather-blocking prowess and surprising breathability manage coastal microclimate changes, damp ocean breezes, and chilling canyon descents with ease. As always, MFF’s attention to detail is evident, with strategic patterning designed for both style and comfort, and construction that will hold up to thousands of miles. As a final touch, its bright coral colorway adds a much appreciated dose of stylish visibility and some serious happiness watts to brighten up any day.

It’s not surprising that a brand born out of frustration at the lack of quality, functional, appropriately fitting women’s kit delivers on the promise of comfort, breathability, and weather protection in a way that leaves even revered options like Castelli’s Gabba in the proverbial dust. Made from lightweight, stretchy material and featuring MFF’s impeccable attention to patterning and fit, this jacket wears like a jersey with the versatility to comfortably manage the unpredictable weather of springtime epics in bright, eye-catching style. When other kit options would leave you cold, clammy, disappointed, and racing for home, this jacket keeps the ride dry and comfortable to extend the miles, enjoy the views, and stop for a delicious coffee and pastry (or two) along the way.
