Chapeau City Jacket

With good waterproofing and windproofing the Chapeau City Jacket is ideal for fending off the elements whether you're commuting by bike, walking round town, or even bikepacking

Being light and very packable, this is a brilliant jacket to have when space is at a premium. If your riding is at a more leisurely pace, as the jacket is designed for, then the breathability won't be an issue.

It's a slim fit, cut for cycling no doubt, but it's generous enough that you can wear your favourite non-cycling specific jumper underneath. And one small detail: it's got a loop so you can hang it up like a normal jacket when you get home. We've seen plenty of jackets that haven't got this and it is very frustrating.

There's lots of length in the body and arms and in a large it sizes up perfectly. It's a proper UK fit, that is, not an undersized Italian one.

While breathability could be better for harder efforts, the waterproofing makes this a brilliant jacket to have as a just-in-case option.
