The Heidi winter jacket from Café du Cycliste is yet another superb example of performance cycling kit that has been designed to the highest specifications. This tailored cycling jacket achieves a careful balance of technical excellence, comfort and style.
A quilted, windproof front combined with shoulder panels will help keep bitter wintery winds out, while a polyester/polypropylene weave works to keep you dry and wick away sweat.
The brushed interior is incredibly comfortable on the skin and it can be used with extra layers to turn it into a deep winter barrier. And shoulder zips open up mesh vents that help regulate your temperature when you need it. Two cargo pockets and a large zipped pocket provide enough storage for fuel and goodies on those long winter rides.

Café du Cycliste's sizing is generally pretty realistic, but bear in mind that the Heidi is a slim fit, so one step less fitted than a race cut but still snug enough to minimise flapping. As with many European makes, if you're torn between two sizes we'd advise you err towards the larger of the two.

The ideal jacket for autumn and winter conditions.
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.

Wonderful jacketReview by Suze (Posted on February 19, 2017)
I totally love the Heidi Jacket. As with everything from Café du Cycliste it is beautifully made, great fit (I am a size 10 and bought a Small - perfect), great quality, super stylish and really comfortable to ride in. I wear a merino base layer under it in chilly weather and a rain jacket over it when very cold and wet. I will buy the grey/navy next winter as it is such a fab jacket.
Great Quality TopReview by Deemaydoo (Posted on December 08, 2015)
Great quality top. Sizing is small, I am 5'11" size 12-14 and M was too small. I swapped for a L and the sleeves are lovely and long so is the back. Wind proof front, I only needed a base layer and waistcoat on a windy day 11 degrees. It looks great and is very comfy to cycle in so I'm very pleased with my purchase!
