Sugoi's Hydrolite Women's Cycling Jacket is a brilliant compromise for road cycling - light enough to squash unobtrusively into a jersey pocket when the sun comes out, substantial enough to keep you well protected from wind and the odd shower.
Where a 100% waterproof jacket can become oppressive, the Sugoi Hydrolite remains refreshingly breathable. The stretch in the material allows it to mould comfortably to you. Even the fit is a perfect balance - fitted enough to avoid flapping, never tight enough to become uncomfortably restrictive.
This is a jacket we swear by - our co-founder Phil took the men's 2013 version around the entire route of the Tour de France and still loved it at the end.
We recommend following these measurements from the Sugoi Women's Size Guide to achieve the correct fit:
|X-Small||24.5-26" / 62-66cm||31.5-33" / 80-84cm|
|Small||26-28" / 66-71cm||33-35" / 84-89cm|

At VeloVixen, we're huge fans of Sugoi - our Founder Liz used Sugoi shorts for most of our year cycling through South and North America in 2010, washed them countless times, put them through hell and still they bounced back wonderfully. And they stayed comfortable!
For years, hard-core endurance athletes have known Sugoi as a manufacturer of some of the best and most durable clothing in endurance sports. Sugoi means "incredible" in Japanese, and for more than 25 years they've been working diligently to live up to their name.
Sugoi's own journey began when bicycle racer David Hollands and Carol Prantner, a fashion student, founded the company in 1987 in a Vancouver basement. Their first product was bike shorts, which they made to address the short supply of high quality, home grown technical cycling kit in Canada. These humble shorts set the ball rolling for Sugoi's ethic of innovation and excellence. Sugoi quickly earned an almost cult-following among athletes seeking the best performing, best-looking cycling available.
Today, Sugoi has grown into a truly international brand. In 2011, they stepped on to the world stage, with major pro-cycling sponsorships. 25 years after it started, Sugoi is unrecognisably larger - but they're still based in Vancouver and stay true to their original ethos and commitment to quality. We love 'em.
