Cyclist Warm Rain Jacket: Recycled synthetic down provides exceptional warmth for biking in winter temperatures

Sustainable functionality for an enjoyable commute

For the Winter Season 2021, VAUDE is introducing the Cyclist Warm Rain Jacket, a jacket for bike commuters that sports a heart for environmental protection with its insulation made from recycled materials. This new functional jacket from VAUDE outfitted with underarm zips and reflective elements is warm, waterproof and windproof and is best appreciated for everyday cycling.

The heart of the Cyclist Warm Rain Jacket is the synthetic down insulation made from 100 percent recycled polyester that will keep you comfortably warm. Primaloft® Black Eco insulation, which is also made entirely from recycled polyester, is used in the sleeves and hood. With its resource-saving insulation, this winter jacket not only retains heat efficiently, it also ensures a comfortable microclimate when you’re biking thanks to its breathability.

Environmental protection and rain protection go hand in hand

The jacket’s fine inner values aren’t all it has going for it. The outer layer is also made entirely of recycled polyester, conserving resources and keeping plastics out of the world's oceans. In addition, the Cyclist Warm Rain Jacket features VAUDE’s Eco Finish waterproofing, which spares people and the planet from harmful fluorocarbons (PFC) and effectively blocks moisture. The adjustable hood provides additional rain and wind protection and stretchy Lycra cuffs prevent cold drafts up the sleeves.

Undercover bike pro

For optimum temperature regulation matched to the day’s weather conditions and your activities, the Cyclist Warm Rain Jacket features discreet underarm zips for additional ventilation. They’ll help you keep the sweating to a minimum, even on high-adrenaline bike tours and steep hills. Along the hem behind another inconspicuous zip is a reflective stripe. Reflective elements are also positioned on the cuffs, which can be hidden by simply folding them over. Thanks to these clever details, the jacket scores as a functional and stylish companion for your daily ride.

Sustainable, eco-friendly protection from the weather

With its cycling-specific elements and insulation made from recycled materials, the VAUDE Cyclist Warm Rain Jacket effectively advocates weather protection for commuters as well as protection for the world's oceans. The winter cycling jacket has been awarded the VAUDE Green Shape label as well as the Grüner Knopf, a state textile seal, which guarantee environmentally friendly and socially just production from bluesign®-certified materials.
