The classic Water Off A Duck's Back waterproof cycling cape is designed to be cycled in. It's waterproof and breathable - even though it is a cape, cycling round town can still be a hot business, so the fabric is breathable. The discrete reflective piping is not only an attractive detail to the coat, but it makes the rider visible to other road users after dark.
The Water Off A Duck's Back cycling cape closes with velcro, which helps keep you waterproof, plus an additional button at collar height. It is cut deliberately longer at the back than the front, which allows you to stay fully protected even when you're leaning forwards over your handlebars, pedalling. It has a detachable hood and packs down compact enough to fit in a handbag.

- Detachable hood
- Longer at the back than at the front so that when you're leaning forward on your bike you're fully covered

Water Off A Duck's Back was formed when Antonia Maybury got tired of having to put on functional, unflattering cycle wear over her normal clothes when using her bike. She set up Water Off A Duck’s Back to provide beautiful stylish clothing for cyclists who want to look stylish and fashionable whilst staying safe, warm and dry on the go.
"I was tired of having to carry out my best highlighter impression to be safe on the roads. I was desperate to find a good-looking waterproof coat. I was amazed to discover that there was nothing that I liked in the market place - and so Water Off A Duck's Back was born."
Her objective is to create coats that look like chic regular coats but that enjoy hidden qualities. Waterproof, breathable and machine washable, they have hidden reflective panels so you can cycle safely after dark (without looking like a highlighter!).
As a British business based in London, Water off a Duck's Back tries to work with other British businesses to create their products. The coats are made in a factory in Kentish Town (North London). To minimise the impact of our business on the environment the packaging used for transportation from factory to shop and warehouse is British made bio-degradable plastic.
