Details

There are many joys associated with cycling, however, getting wet probably isn't one of them - certainly not on your way to work.  Staying dry and looking nice at the same time has been made a lot easier, thanks to Water Off A Duck's Back.  Afterall, no-one wants the 'damp dishcloth' chic.  Yikes.

This beautifully British made waterproof coat is designed to keep you warm, dry and safe on the road, while not compromising on style in any way.  The fabric is made from a PU coated microfibre, this means the coat is fully waterproof and breathable.  The fabric is quick drying too, so you should never need to put a soggy coat on again!

The Water Off A Duck's Back macintosh has been tailored with cyclists in mind. It's specifically cut in the arms and shoulders for riding your bike in comfort. There are hidden reflective panels on the collar, cuffs and tie belt - turn around when you want to be seen the most. 

A macintosh that transfers from the saddle to the street, weighing at 750g of gorgeous style - less than you would expect from a fully lined coat. Even though this mac has no buttons, the tie belt works just as well, there is plenty of material in the skirt to keep your lap and legs dry.

Ideal for:

  • A cycling commute.
  • Keeping dry and comfortable on or off the bike.
  • Turning a damp day into a happy day.

Who's Behind It?

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.
