This is a jacket you can get in race-fit or loose-fit. Just take one size larger than you normally do if your intention is to use it more like a casual jacket.
As we all know, rain is just liquid sunshine. Nonetheless, you can have too much of a good thing so keeping from getting wet when you're on your bike, in the middle of nowhere is a smart move. Our Gotlandsleden rain and wind jacket is specially constructed for cyclists with a longer ventilated back section and silicon gripper hems to keep it down in the wind. The lining has been designed using a novel channeled construction using wool to keep the surface of the jacket away from the rider to aid ventilation and moisture transportation whilst at the same time provide insulation.
This jacket has been tested by road cyclists from -5°C down to -12°C and kept them warm while cycling at a moderate pace. The ideal jacket when a pack jacket is too thin or there's a chance of showers. We are convinced the Australian Merino wool is key to it's great low temperature performance.
Gotlandsleden is the road that circles the amazing Swedish island of Gotland in the Baltic sea. Stretching from Fårö in the north to Hoburg in the south, it will take you past countless cafés, bric-a-brack stalls (loppis in Swedish) and wonderful places to take a quick dip in the sea. The mediaeval city of Visby will transport you back in time, close your eyes and imagine you're Ragnar Lothbrok, just don't do anything he would do and you should be fine.
