The Café du Cycliste Colette Rain Jacket is an exceptional combination of style and substance. It's superlight and will scrunch down into a jersey pocket, but fully waterproof. Its 4-way stretch fabric creates a flattering fit to dream of.
Whilst it looks stunning in rich purple, the attention to cycling detail is what stands out on closer inspection: double-layer fabric, waterproof zip, taped seams, brushed collar, waterproof cuffs and breathable back openings are just a few. A jacket for the purist, you won't regret this one.
Café du Cycliste's sizing is generally pretty realistic. As with many European makes, if you're torn between two sizes err towards the larger of the two. Bear in mind that most of their products are cut more for comfort than for out and out skin hugging, so this can help counteract any 'undersizing'.

André a former Ironman and Rémi a former canoeing World Champion are the founding duo behind Café du Cycliste. The pair started out opening a dreamy cycling community cafe in the Cote D’Azur, Nice and haven’t moved from that location since.
Soon after, André and Rémi launched what they deliberately describe as an ‘alternative cycling wear brand’. The essence of Café du Cycliste is to avoid the unsophisticated and garish. They combine the finest materials and latest technology with a retro twist, allowing you to perform to your best but look elegant and stylish in doing so.
Development, patterning, designing and testing all still take place on the inspirational Cote D’Azur, with only the actual manufacturing outsourced. We simply love their approach to both work and play, and their products consistently rank amongst the most sought after of any we stock.
