Vulpine's Softshells are that top layer you've been hunting for. Based on their award-winning original Softshell, the women's model is positively riddled with clever features. Yet Vulpine's eye for style means the details never override their cool, urban look.
Softer than 'crispier' waterproofs, their hardwearing water resistance and windproofing makes them perfect for steady drizzle or a sharp shower, all year round. The interior is tightly fleeced and cosy. So when you get to your destination, you'll still look and feel great in your meeting, date or cocktail bar.
Technical features include 8 (eight!) separate pockets, reflective features that you can tuck away when they're not needed, a magnetically sealed raised collar, waterproof zips and a bum-protecting splashguard. If you don't believe us, here's what a couple of reviews had to say:

Vulpine was founded by Nick & Emmalou Hussey at around the same time as VeloVixen. Coming from backgrounds in film & design, they put their life savings and house into creating the company.
They now have a little boy, Millar, and a daughter Lyra. They've had cycling genetically implanted into them. The team has grown significantly through less organic means too. Vulpine have quickly become one of the biggest and most ambitious names in cycling. Crucially, office Jack Russell Lily, remains in a position of responsibility.
They've put in years of painstaking design, research and testing to create stylish cycling apparel that you'll actually want to wear both for cycling and for when you get where you're going. They've have made sure that it is all cut for cycling, with a classic British tailored influence. They've chosen sophisticated colours that don't just mimic other products out there. They've added innovations that are practical without being dull. And visibility features that you can wear with pride.
Vulpine has been a dream for most of Nick's adult life. He fell in love with cycling as a child, quickly graduating to pretty serious road racing and time trialling. But the enjoyment of cycling in all its forms is absolutely key to all the Vulpine team members. They believe we are all Cyclists, but also people with lives off the bike as well as on. We look forward to working with them as their exponential growth and profile continues.
