There are hundreds of waterproof jackets out there for commuters, in various hues of flouro yellow, pink and black. But if you want something that has style without sacrificing performance, a cycling jacket you can wear off the bike as well as on, then check out these casual winter cycling jackets.
We’d quite happily wear these even if we weren’t riding our bikes!

If you want a jacket that has understated, stylish looks, but is effective at keeping you warm and dry through the autumn and winter months, the Harrington Rain Jacket from Vulpine may be just the ticket. It’s made of breathable and water resistant Epic Cotton.

3. Water off a Duck’s Back Livia Women’s Cycle Coat
Yes, it’s a gorgeous looking coat that also happens to be waterproof. But that’s not the only thing that makes the Livia Cycle Coat from British brand Water Off a Duck’s Back cycle-specific. It’s cut at the shoulder to be comfy whether on a road bike or dutch bike, and has loads of bright reflective details that will help you stay seen.
