Cafe du Cycliste's Charlotte Women's Cycling Jacket is the pinnacle of cycling style and technical quality. It manages to combine everything you could look for in a cycling jacket: complete waterproofing in a comfortable, flexible and breathable soft shell, all weighing next to nothing and looking effortlessly stylish.
The Cafe du Cycliste Charlotte Jacket should have Rapha quaking in their cleats. She'll allow you to take on the toughest riding conditions whilst feeling as comfortable and as 4-way stretchy as a premium long sleeve jersey. As you'd expect from the very best, the Charlotte is chock full of cleverly conceived details for cyclists in the know, including low profile rear venting on the upper back, laser cut openings under the armpits, fully taped seams, a full length zip flap, a generous triple rear cargo pocket, fleecy collar, silicon gripper and reflective detailing.
Charlotte is an investment to get you through the winter and beyond whilst still revelling in every moment on your bike.
Café du Cycliste's sizing is generally pretty realistic, but bear in mind that the Charlotte is 'race cut', so deliberately snug so as to avoid flapping. As with many European makes, if you're torn between two sizes we'd advise you err towards the larger of the two.

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.
