A coat strictly for those who don't want to look like they are wearing cycling kit, this Water off a Ducks Back Livia Cycle Coat isn't a standard short cut waterproof shell or hi viz zip up affair, it's a long, belted Macintosh style coat.
As such, our photos don't really do it justice, since I didn't dress as I would have to wear such a coat in real life, not was I actually photographed on a laid back café cruiser pedaling in a relaxed and stylish manner. So, please bear in mind it probably doesn't look 'at home' on me!
Whilst usually a jersey is desirable for riding, with its nifty pockets, its scooped tail, its long front zip and all, sometimes it's nice just to have a t-shirt type top on for a ride instead. For urban riding, commuting, touring, or just a bimble round the lanes on a sunny afternoon, a t-shirt is the business.
But it's still nice to have one that doesn't get all soggy if you pedal a bit more vigorously, or stay that way for long periods of time if it does. The City Scoop Tee from Thoosa is designed to bridge the gap between casual and technical.
