i'm in need of a jacket but wondered if anyone had some low price options.

are a few i've seen.

Most jackets seem to be £45+ but I only bike max once per week so i dont see much point spunking lots of cash on a gore £150 smoker!

Aldi's may still have some in stock, you can get a rain jacket and the excellent soft shell for £30. Otherwise they're having there running sale and those may be suitable, watch out for low backs though.

Cycling jackets need slightly longer arms & a bum-flap. They're rare & I don't have any suggestions, but you can occasionally find cycling jackets with integrated hood (not zip or velcro attached), & a bum-flap that can be velcrod or press-studded up. Then you can use your "cycling" jacket for the rest of the week too.
