Gore x Romance Shakedari
This device takes all the best features of Gore’s super-lightweight, quick-drying technology – Shakedry – but adds a Larry romance printed on it. Romance: Who are you? It’s a very cool cycling clothing brand, lending some of its streetness to the very practical-but-essentially-stylish German brand, Gore. Jackets with Shakedry were previously only available in black, and this bold and daring new direction is simply delightful.
Castelli Idro Pro 2
It’s 2001 in New York. After an all-night session with Gordon Raphael, Julian Casablancas returns to legendary Studio Transporter am in the East Village. After pulling his bike chain from the iron railing outside the studio, suddenly the sky opens and it starts to rain. With the same Shakedry technology as the Gore x Romance Jacket, this jacket draws on Castelli’s centuries of cycling heritage. The wrists are elasticated to allow water to drain from the jacket, and the whole piece can be worn down to a minimum. When the rain stops, it does not become a hindrance.

Do you remember those winter mornings when your breath is melting in your bed? You wish you could cocoon in your duvet for the rest of your day. For these types of conditions, the hoody jacket is the best winter cycling jacket and is perfect for your bike ride. It’s like wearing a quilt but it’s a little lighter. It feels great next to your skin because of its brushed interior. Two organized, zippered vents on your shoulders allow you to manage heat when you’re working hard on the Sporting Fiendery Pro Jacket

Sportful’s kit must be able to keep a rider comfortable, warm and dry as they pedal the miles. Or, in your case, with a full kit digestif and tea to wait for the sky to clear before starting your ride.
Proviz REFLECT360 Cycling Jacket
When riding a bike, visibility is very important. Visibility helps other road users see you and protects you from being picked off by giant, Lord of the Rings-style eagles who have mistakenly thought you were their lunch. Proviz knows visibility is important and has created a jacket that will be nearly impossible to miss even for the close-sighted mega-buzzards in your neighborhood. This jacket shines in the bright rays of car headlights because it contains millions of tiny, but reflective glass beads that reflect light. You almost feel like you’re glowing when you ride.
Rapha Explore Down Jacket
Before we get into the jacket’s thermal benefits, it’s worth noting that it has two zippers that allow it to store Vigilante’s most valuable accessory – a cape.
It is easy to imagine. As you ride your bike, the jacket is on. You look amazing. Suddenly you see a street ruffian doing some mischief. You zip up under your jacket and start chasing the street ruffian, legs flapping in the air behind you.
Assos Habujacket Laalalai
Now look, it might be unfair to say that the nice and brainy Swiss folks at Assos aren’t taking their product names seriously, but who actually calls their standout winter cycling jacket “Hobjectalalai”? It’s lightweight, compact, easy to stuff in your jersey and looks great to wear. Assos used the most advanced covers, including Stratagon Light (wind- and rain protection) on the front panel. RXQ is used throughout the inside of the jacket to keep you warm as the temperature drops.
Endura FS260-Pro Adrenaline Race Cap II
The history books will tell you that the Endura FSL260-Pro Adrenaline Race Cape II was enthroned by the Queen Endura FSL260-Pro Adrenaline Race Cape the First, who died in battle against some of the dirtiest heads. The history books won’t tell you how great this jacket can be for riding in the rain. The fabric in the Endura jacket refers to ExoShell20ST(tm), and while it may not be the most memorable name, it is excellent technology.
Ale Women’s Pulse Stretch Jacket
This winter Cycling Jackets is what Sansa Stark would wear to ride her bike into Winterfell. This jacket is for cold weather women who are on a mission to get things done. Pulse will be your go-to outfit for colder days. It is warm, waterproof, and durable. It comes in three color options, but black and pink are my favorites.
DHB Classic FLT Thermal Soft Shell
Look for a comfortable piece of spandex and polyester right there. It’s all heating and stuff. It looks so warm, you can imagine wrapping yourself in it. It also looks like a Christmas jumper, in orange and black. This is before we go into the technical details. FLT stands for Flashlight Technology. This layman’s speak for a collection of bright reflective bits spread across the jacket to help you see and prevent you from getting hit by reindeer on your ride.
