Poncey spoilt journalists (like me) o en say cool bike jackets are good enough for the pub. Which is true, as long as you want to stand at the bar in bike kit. This jacket genuinely is Black Swanready, however. Waxed canvas with a membrane to keep weather out, it’s lined with Dyneema for proper abrasion resistance and has wool inserts on the cus and collar for warm and comfort, and works on a bike. It’s not quite as warm as ‘normal’ textile kit in deep winter, but is far less bulky and doesn’t make you look bloated – the design and t make even a style-cabbage like me feel cool ordering a pint.
