The Water Off A Duck's Back Livia Cycle Coat was designed for women cycling in cooler or wetter climes, allowing you to stay warm and dry but to arrive at your destination looking fabulous, darling.

Water Off A Duck's Back's Livia is triple layer fabric is cosy, soft and flowing. It's both waterproof (not just showerproof) and breathable, and also benefits from a slight built-in stretch. All of this means you won't overheat when you're on your bike whilst ensuring you will stay warm, even on the chilliest rides. The coat hangs beautifully and offers ingeniously concealable reflective panels on the cuffs, collar and belt to make you visible on after dark sorties.

The Livia is tailored in the arms and shoulders specifically for cyclists, so you can ride in comfort on pretty much any kind of bike. And it's deliberately designed so that, despite its length, it doesn't get caught in your chain or wheels. Despite these practicalities, you never need to compromise on style with this one - this is about as stylish as you can be on two wheels, and nobody need ever know you got there by bike.

Who's Behind It?

Water Off A Duck's Back was formed when Antonia Maybury got tired of having to put on functional, unflattering cycle wear over her normal clothes when using her bike.  She set up Water Off A Duck’s Back to provide beautiful stylish clothing for cyclists who want to look stylish and fashionable whilst staying safe, warm and dry on the go.

"I was tired of having to carry out my best highlighter impression to be safe on the roads.  I was desperate to find a good-looking waterproof coat.  I was amazed to discover that there was nothing that I liked in the market place - and so Water Off A Duck's Back was born."

Her objective is to create coats that look like chic regular coats but that enjoy hidden qualities.  Waterproof, breathable and machine washable, they have hidden reflective panels so you can cycle safely after dark (without looking like a highlighter!).

As a British business based in London, Water off a Duck's Back tries to work with other British businesses to create their products.  The coats are made in a factory in Kentish Town (North London).  To minimise the impact of our business on the environment the packaging used for transportation from factory to shop and warehouse is British made bio-degradable plastic.
