Keeping dry


With this abrupt end to the great British summer, we’ve been caught out slightly on the wet weather gear front. Our trusty old parka hasn’t really stood up to the weather this past few days so we’ve hunted down some better options…



We rather like a label that advertises itself as Swedish melancholy at its driest.  These raincoats are lovingly handmade using exceptional materials and with an excellent choice of colours.  Yes they are pricey but these coats are built to last, and considering that winter here can last most of the year, we figure that’s a good investment.  You can read more here.

Continuing on with our northern European theme next we have Rains, a Danish company that seeks to create practical yet stylish and colourful raincoats. A quick google search will tell you that these things don’t always go together. They challenge us to see rainy days as beautiful and inspiring, which we could perhaps manage were we dry. You can find out more here.
For those of you after a shorter, more streamlined jacket, there is always the City range from Rapha. They are in fact on sale now so you could just bag yourself a bargain. You can get yourself one here.
If you’re looking for something you can fit over your clothes in case a sudden downpour hits, then the Bobbin rain cape is just the thing. Made of waxed cotton, it looks pretty great on and off the bike. It’s sold exclusively through CycleChic.
