Let's get the obvious out of the way, the Colette does have quite a price tag attached to it. Kirsty admits that it was a splurge for her, but as she rightly pointed out, after spending close to £300 on an all-singing-all-dancing walking jacket for her jaunts with Dexter, £175 on a high-performance and immensely stylish cycling jacket just made sense.

There are no products matching the selection.

Don't be fooled by Colette's chic styling as she's an incredibly technical piece of kit made by a brand that certainly know their cycling gear. The cycling press constantly award Café du Cycliste kit the highest scores in tests and for us they're a brand that have championed equality in their men's and women's ranges so we're proud to stock them on the VeloVixen shelves.

Colette, with her soft as silk finish showcases how Café du Cycliste combine the finest materials with the latest technology. Until you hold the jacket in your hand you won't believe just how silky it feels and how light it is.

Even though the jacket is super lightweight and incredibly soft to the touch, the honeycomb lining makes it feel reassuringly durable. Not only does this honeycomb design add to its toughness, it also makes the jacket both WIND and WATERPROOF!

Colette is truly one of the finest women's cycling rain jackets we've ever seen. Having said that, we've included some lovely alternatives below.
