dhb Aeron
all Winter softshell jacket

Warm, water-resistant, and focused on comfort, this jacket from dhb will serve you well in a variety of conditions on the road, and a variety of intensities.

Using three different strategically placed fabrics to ensure that you stay warm, comfortable but don’t overheat, the jacket is practical too with three back pockets and an additional zipped pocket at the hip.

Endura MT500
waterproof MTB jacket II

Simply one of the best waterproof mountain bike jackets out there, the MT500 is feature-packed for the worst winter weather.

Made from waterproof and breathable three-layer ExoShell40DR fabric, plus using seam-sealed construction, rain won’t get in but sweat can get out. Underarm vents and vented front pockets allow you to easily regulate airflow and body temperature on the go too.

Alpha RoS 2 jacket

This is a super-versatile windproof and water-resistant high-performance jacket that makes winter road rides a breeze.

Using Gore® INFINIUM™ Windstopper® 150 fabric for ultimate breathability and double-layer Alpha construction for supreme comfort and ventilation, very few jackets will match this one for cold, dry rides – and when the rain does start, it’ll fend off all but the most persistent downpours.

Gore Wear C5 Gore-Tex®
Shakedry® 1985 jacket

This is a featherweight jacket which packs one hell of a punch. Using GORE-TEX® Active fabric, it’s completely waterproof and windproof while being very breathable to prevent sweat build-up.

Innovative SHAKEDRY ™ technology prevents rain from penetrating the outer surface - making it ideal for long days in the rain. It also packs down easily to fit in your rear pocket!

dhb Aeron rain defence
polartec jacket

Designed for changeable conditions on the road, this jacket uses Polartec® Power Shield® Pro fabric for superb breathable weather protection. It can handle rides where terrain, effort and weather conditions vary wildly, regulating temperature so you never feel damp and clammy inside.

Neat additional features include four rear pockets with weatherproof flap plus a zip pocket to keep valuables safe.

Fox Racing Ranger 2.5L
waterproof cycling jacket

This fully seam-sealed mountain bike jacket is constructed from a lightweight waterproof and breathable fabric to keep you fresh and dry as you tackle the trails in changeable weather.

Its DWR coating will help expel moisture, mud, and debris as you shred. Other nice touches include a helmet-compatible hood, zipped pockets, draw cord, cinching at hem and elastic cuffs.

dhb Aeron
Equinox softshell

Perfect on its own or worn as part of a layering system, this softshell combines the protection of a jacket, with the performance of a jersey.

The weatherproof and breathable fabrics help you remain protected in the most exposed areas from wind and showers, allowing any build-up of heat and moisture to escape whilst keeping you insulated from the cold.

Gore Wear Phantom Gore-Tex
infinium jacket

Changeable weather calls for a changeable jacket - made from windproof Gore-Tex Infinium and featuring zip-off sleeves, this is a high-performance jacket that you can adapt to suit the weather conditions.

With 100% windproof coverage to lock out biting cold winds and water-resistant fabric to fend off rain showers, it’s breathable enough for hard efforts on the road too.

Castelli Mortirolo VI

For mild winter days or if you run hot on colder rides, this one’s for you. Using a mix of fabrics including Gore-Tex INFINIUM™ WINDSTOPPER® X-Fast for protection against windchill, the Mortirolo balances protection and breathability well.

Other notable features include a front zipper to regulate ventilation, three back pockets plus a reflective panel on the back for extra visibility.
