Men’s Cyclist Softshell Jacket II - functional and water-repellent

Sustainably urban

The Men's Cyclist Softshell Jacket II is VAUDE's answer to the needs of eco-aware, all-weather cycling urbanites. The jacket not only offers three-layer weather protection made with eco friendly production methods, it's also an eye catcher with its modern, functional design.

Urban cyclists want to look good – which often comes at the expense of weatherproof clothing. Bad weather's never spared anyone just because they were looking good. A better option – take the Men's Cyclist Softshell Jacket II along for the ride – it'll provide rain and cold weather protection while still managing your urban style. Thanks to its stretchy, lightweight and thin softshell material, the jacket easily follows your every move – whether you're riding or walking.

Need your morning coffee? 

The Men's Cyclist Softshell Jacket II is the perfect choice for urban bike commuters or when you want to enjoy an outdoor cafe, despite the fact that the weather's not all that inviting. After all, everyone knows that biking trumps driving when it comes to urban mobility. 

The Men's Cyclist Softshell Jacket II is based on the Ceplex Green membrane, which consists of 50 % recycled materials, primarily from used PET bottles. Think that's maximum sustainability? Think again. This jacket was also made with S.Café®, a material that combines used coffee grounds with textile fibers in an innovative process. This means it's partially biobased, quick-drying, with UV protection, and antibacterial properties that prevents odors. 

Trendy colors

The jacket is available in three colors: Classic black, modern khaki (bamboo) or timeless blue (steel blue).


Re(Cycling) in the City 

Reliable, flexible weather protection with a smaller ecological footprint – the Men's Cyclist Softshell Jacket II, let's eco-aware cycling fans have the best of both worlds. No matter whether your day involves commuting to the office or an outing with friends – greater versatility is hard to imagine.

Sustainable production methods
