Summer seems to be making a late arrival if the rain today is anything to go by – but that’s no reason to dread pulling on drab waterproof trousers and bulky jackets.
Georgia in Dublin create rain wear that’s made for women who want to feel feminine and confident whilst being free to enjoy the outdoors, whatever the weather.
The kit is designed to be functional, as well as stylish. The Dublette jacket, for example, will expand over a backpack, but the back and sleeves can be cinched in for a stylish look when off the bike.
Coming in at €180.00 there are six colours to choose from, and the coat is available to fit sizes 8-20.
