The definitive jacket for riding to work in wet conditions, the Commuter Jacket is designed specifically for the journey. Cut with a less extreme riding position than our other waterproof jackets, the Commuter is made of a durable yet lightweight fabric with a hydrophobic membrane. All seams are sealed to prevent any water ingress and the inside of the fabric features a dry touch print to keep you comfortable even if you break a sweat.
An integrated mesh back yoke provides additional breathability around the collar. The jacket features a full length waterproof zip, off-centre to prevent irritation against your chin, and a hood which can be worn underneath a helmet in a downpour. When not in use, the hood is neatly stowed with a reflective retention strap for visibility. To ensure you stay seen, the jacket also features a reflective gradient dot print on the tail, designed to sit beneath a backpack and in the eyeline of motorists. For extra protection against the weather, the jacket’s elasticated hem and subtle integrated hood drawcord can be adjusted while internal storm binding keep water out at the cuffs.
Our Commuter range has a slightly more relaxed fit. If you’re unsure which size will offer you the most comfort, our updated size guides can help you find the perfect size.
NB. The jacket is designed to be worn on top of a couple of layers, bear this in mind when choosing your size.
“The jacket is an ideal weight, tough enough for daily use, but packable enough to just fit in a regular jersey pocket, or your bag […] extremely comfortable, protects brilliantly from wind and rain, is practical and incredibly visible.”
