The quintessential mac for everyday cycling about town, the Cambridge Raincoat Company’s Poppy Red Retro Raincoat is the perfect accompaniment to a classic Dutch bike. Made in England, the coat is highly water resistant, windproof and breathable, and is long enough to keep your knees dry (plus there’s an inside tab button on the front panel to spot it blowing open). When you’re on the bike, the cuff straps and back belt can be reversed to reveal reflective details. Other colours and styles are also available.
Price: £175, available from Cambridge Raincoats.
