It is waterproof and breathable - we know that even though it is a cape it can still get hot so the fabric is breathable.
The discrete reflective piping is not only an attractive detail to the coat but it makes the rider visible to other road users after dark.
The cape is closed with velcro, which keeps the water out, and a button at the collar.
The cape has a detachable hood and it packs down to a small size so it can fit in a handbag.
The Capes are:
Discrete reflective piping on the back and reflective collar
Longer at the back than at the front so that when you are leaning forward on your bike you are fully covered
They come in two amazing colours - red - with a light blue lining and dove grey with a sky blue lining.
The Fabric that the Cape is made from is a PU coated microfibre. This means that the cape is fully waterproof and breathable. The fabric is also quick drying so you should never need to put a soggy cape on again! It is also crumple resistant and fairly lightweight. The cape weighs approx 400g - less than you would expect from a long fully lined cape.
