"On a six-hour slogfest in torrential rain, it also kept out the wet and wind. The fabric is stretchy and breathable, lightweight and resilient. This jacket from Chapeau is stylish cycling clothing with performance to match."
A jacket for the Rain. Something we seem to know far too much about these days! At the beginning of the “summer” of 2012 someone told me that “it’s OK, because all this wet weather just makes you appreciate the sunshine even more” . I have not spoken to them since, but I wonder if they are still singing from the same optimistic hymn sheet?! Anyway, I have digressed – the somewhat essential Rain Jacket is a favourite of ours at Chapeau! towers as it is a fully functional jacket that can still be folded into its own pocket and shoved into a rear jersey pocket when not needed. The asymmetric front zip gives the optimum fit when in the riding position, whilst the snug cuffs and high collar keep the wind and rain out. Some reflective logos finish this piece off nicely.
No fabric we tested came close in terms of flexibility and it's waterproof properties. The material has a 10,000 waterproof rating making this a superior waterproof jacket.
