Details

The Gaffer is in charge, the master of all your kit.  Without, you could look like soggy biscuit.  

Available in sizes up to XXXX-lovely (UK 26) which fit properly and feel comfortable.  Gaffer is like the ding to your bike bell, the oil to your chains and the chocolate sprinkles to your cappuccino.  It's the waterproof jacket that will literally save the day and make your bike ride.

The Lasses Gaffer Jacket has been created with an incredibly flattering, graduated design, which attracts the eye away from the lower torso and towards the head, neck and shoulders.  A lovely idea that works equally for all shapes and sizes.

Made from the latest innovative fabric, Gaffer's Windtex membrane, is waterproof, windproof and lightweight enough to cover all of weathers nasty tricks.  Its stretch and insulation ensures a proper' fit, developed to let the tiny sweat molecules escape and keep the rain droplets out.  Packed full of features, its high storm collar and full length storm zip seal the gaps, a drop tail offers shelter from road spray and a silicone grip around the hem keeps the jacket in place.

Stash whatever goodies you need, arm/neck warmer, pump and banana in the three back pockets.  There's also two zipped pockets at the front, a great place for spending money or to warm hands at the pit-stop.

Lasses, spin those pedals and let your cycling kit do the rest.

Carefully designed to flatter all shapes and sizes, this jacket is cut to a comfortable fit, so you feel more confident and ready for the ride.

Bust ~ measure your bust at the widest part, usually around your nipple line, keep your arms relaxed by sides (this is very important for an accurate measurement).

Waist ~ measure your waist/tummy at the largest point (usually about 1 or 2 inches below the belly button).

*If your waist is larger than your bust, use this measurement to order your jacket.

*If you have a broader back/ shoulders you may find the next size up more comfortable.

Who's Behind It?

Fat Lad At the Back was conceived when three 'large framed lads' including founder Richard Bye, rode to the Alps. After years of squeezing into ill-fitting and often unflattering kit, Bye decided to create a range of easy to wear, high quality garments using the best technical fabrics available.

Yorkshire-based Fat Lad At the Back ('F.L.A.B.'!) caters for cyclists who, like the founders, are fighting flab for a fitter body through cycling (their words, not ours!). Inundated by requests from female cyclists following the press and proven popularity of their male collection (including an impressive showing on the BBC's Dragons' Den), Fat Lad At the Back launched a women's specific range of plus-sized cycling clothing in response to the demand.

Launched in 2013 by Richard and his wife Lynn, Fat Lad At The Back and Fat Lass at the Back have gone from strength to strength. They design their garments in the UK and manufacture them primarily in Italy. Their focus on fit and quality is fast becoming legendary, with exceptional attention to detail in their tailoring.

*although we already suspected it, we took guidance both from our customers and from the Fat Lass at the Back themselves as to whether overt use of the brand would appeal to women as much as to men. We quickly realised that demand was strong and that many women have been hankering after plus sized women-specific cycling kit!*
