What they say: A true rain cape. Completely waterproof, lightweight, form-fitting, and extremely breathable.
What we say: Made from four-way stretch fabric that’s soft to the touch, this might more accurately be described as a softshell jacket than a rain cape. It is, however, highly waterproof thanks to the DWR (durable water repellent) treatment it’s been laminated with.
A high neck, a waterproof zip, complete with an easy pull tag, sealed seams, plus an elasticated hem and cuffs make it nigh on impossible for the rain to find its way into this garment. It’s also highly breathable, so there’s no danger of moisture getting trapped inside the jacket, either.
Packing down to an easily stowed size, it weighs 138g. It also scores well for its good looks and 360° reflective detailing which helps raise your visibility. Available in black or fluoro yellow in sizes S-XXL.
Conclusion: With its aero fit, and light weight, this is made for fast rides in rubbish weather.
