8 of the Best Alternative Commuter Jackets

Bold commuter jackets with a tonne of character.

Think of your typical high vis commuter jacket then turn your imaginings on their head, which is exactly what Ana Nichoola has done with this, the Hello Yello jacket. Made from a breathable, waterproof softshell fabric with taped seams to prevent leaks, it embraces fashion with its dropped peplum and fitted shape. Married to practicality, it has reflective patches on the shoulders and that peplum doubles up as a splash tail. For smart city riding with a feminine flourish, there’s nothing better.

Price: £110, available from Ana Nichoola.


Arc’teryx A2B Commuter Jacket

The super-tech Alpine brand Arc’teryx has created a ridiculously smart commuting jacket, full of utilitarian styling and useful features. Made from water repellent, wind resistant, breathable stretchy softshell fabric, it’s shaped for cycling comfort, has reflective cuffs, a high, wrap-around collar and a drop back hem. While the silhouette may be trim, it’s tailored for movement and allows room for layering. Two zippered hand pockets and an additional, streamlined and hidden zippered pocket lies flat on the back, maintaining the mix of style and performance. It’s available in black, orange and white.

 Price: £150, available from Arcteryx.
