The weather isn’t always pleasant, but should that put you off going out and having fun? I don’t think so! Good gear is essential to enjoy the ride. Gone are the days of choosing between a rain, wind or casual jacket for your ride. The Iris Escape jacket encompasses all your needs: the perfect all rounder.

The Escape Jacket is for you, whether your escape is a 300 km bike packing route or nipping across town for a coffee.

Although we’re definitely not made of sugar, we don’t mind a touch of (lilac) sweetness when we’re surviving the elements right?

The Escape jacket is made up of two complementary layers. The outer layer maintains a water repellent DWR coating and the inner membrane is completely waterproof. This double layer system gives versatility and efficiency. The two-way zipper makes temp control and pocket access effortless, so you won’t need to totally unzip to get to your stashed pockets.

The storm hood features an elasticated closure to keep the weather at bay and can be worn over or under a helmet. A magnet system keeps the hood in place when it’s not being used, to stop it flapping in the wind. A large chest pocket keeps your valuables safe from the rain and close to hand. Reflective stripes on the sleeves and a reflective, zipped pocket on the rear ensure you stay seen in low light conditions.

  • Durable water repellent finish
  • Relaxed fit for comfort on and off the bike
  • Stretchable and breathable
  • Windproof
  • Elasticated drawcord hem
  • Elasticated hood for use under or over a helmet
  • Magnetic system for storing the hood
  • Reflective zipped pocket on back
  • Integrated reflective details on the arms
  • Two-way YKK zipper with camlock puller and internal zipper flap
  • Zipped chest pocket
  • Cut longer at the back for optimum cycling position

 

Care instructions: Machine wash cool: 30°C | Do not tumble dry | Do not dry-clean | Do not iron | Do not bleach | Wash with similar colours.

 

Iris Size Guide

Iris clothing is - in Iris' own words - 'a true pro fit'. That means they are deliberately cut to be a close, athletic fit. HOWEVER, if you're not part of the elite professional peloton (most of us aren't!), don't panic. Iris garments are stretchy enough that the sizing in these charts should be a realistic representation of what you can expect.

And bear in mind that Iris herself is a tall, Dutch woman, so wanted to avoid the trap of making kit only for tiny people! The length is a little more generous than some brands, although not dramatically. If you are still unsure, feel free to contact us.
