Colombière insulated jacket

(11 customer reviews)


High protection insulated jacket, delivers exceptional performance on and off the bike.


The Colombière jacket was engineered for extreme cold weather riding but we have produced a garment that blurs the lines between on-bike performance and functional leisure wear.  Bikepacking may be the origin of this jacket:  A dream of keeping you warm off the bike when cooking dinner in the wild, but the reality is we have worn the samples as much biking with the kids and walking for coffee in the rain.

 The performance is drawn from Synthetic insulation (made from 50% recycled bottles) producing a breathable, odour defying, windproof layer that will retain structure after washing. The main fabric has had a water-repellent (DWR) treatment to fend off a shower and the hood is removable with a hidden zip. The Front hand pockets are ‘inseam’ and zipped to protect valuables. Elasticated cuffs, waist and high neck keep out draughts. It can be worn with a single base layer in exercise conditions at temperatures of 10°C and down below freezing. Or add a mid layer for slumber or outside living in the coolest of conditions.

The fit is contoured without being overly snug, giving room for a layer underneath. The Roubaix fabric panels keep it close to the body to enhance both the fit and thermo regulation properties, on the bike and off.  We have designed it to be sufficiently long in the body and sleeves to work perfectly well when riding but at home. Roubaix panels are again utilised on the inside of the arms to enhance the fit and movement range of the jacket allowing you to put a bike on your shoulder with ease or reach for a beer right at the back of the fridge.

We have designed the insulation at 80gm, sandwiched between two lightweight woven nylon outer fabrics, to make it dry fast and leave the warmth to weight ratio just right. Reflective features on the chest zip and rear panel joins, add visibility without compromise on weight or packability. The hood is zip removable with a middle closure system so can be taken off completely for those packing lighter still. Embroidered logo on the chest in contrasting colours for each option.

Col de la Colombière is a mountain pass in the Alps in the department of Haute-Savoie in France. It connects Cluses in the Arve valley with Le Grand-Bornand in the Bourne valley. Both on and off road ascents to 1600 meters are only possible in summer time; for the rest of the year you need to be wearing this jacket for protection. (Other garments can be worn, it is not French law, but this is best).

    Worn for the first time yesterday in 1 Degree along coast of NE England (Sunderland to South Shields & back) with base layer & long sleeve jersey. Toasty on 20 miler & washed perfectly at 30 degree sports setting. Opted for Blue in size Small (I am 36/37 chest and 10st 7lb – fits fine with nice drop at rear).
    As before price vs quality is incomparable. Will be used as walking layer under waterproof as well.
    Highly recommended & I will be purchasing more Galibier items when wallet allows – I’m a convert!!
    PS – free snood was a nice touch – thanks!

    I can highly recommend this jacket in grey / orange its very well made and is great value for money far better than some jackets costing much more . I chose the large to fit me 6 feet 1 inch tall 38 inch chest. the arms are a perfect length for me . Its a great jacket for both cycling and walking even just leisure wear . On the bike today it was just 2 degrees I wore just a base layer under neath and I was nice and warm. Highly recommended . In fact I will be buying a second one in another colour. Lastly thank you for the free socks.

    A great jacket that fits snug as a casual jacket, but fits just right on the bike.
    Guessing it’s gonna be a warm jacket, but as the other half is a slow rider, it’s gonna come in handy when cycling with the wife, or when stopped for a brew. At 6’1” and 93kg I went with the XL, but the XXL would have been a bit roomier


    Got this jacket as a Christmas 2020 present, and so far I have not even used it for cycling…running, walking in snow, rain, hail, blizzards, and general life. Its amazing, just a light base layer below it and its so warm.
    All my gear is now Galibier with the exception of 1 pair of gloves, and 1 pair of Overshoes for very cold days in Spatz.
    Massive fan of this brand, its great value, great service, these guys are killing Rapha, Assos and Castelli on price yes but service and quality they are miles ahead…

    Been using the jacket for the past two weeks on my daily 5m commute I opted for the orange one as gives better visability on the dark nights. Been using it with just a merino base layer the whole time and have never felt cold temps between 3 and 12 degree .The jacket is very lightweight Guess not waterproof but has managed the quick shower fine. I opted for the large 38-40″ chest and it fits fine so I can use it as a normal jacket if I so wanted, obvioulsy not a jacket for those who want a close fitting . The only tow slight gripes I have is that the internal pocket is not big enough to fit a phone and the zip to put the hood away felt a little less quality that the rest of the jacket but as say these are just minor gripes.

    The guys at Galibier have done it again. Absolutely brilliant jacket, lightweight, warm, great fit and super quality. Really well fitted for use on the bike and great off-bike too. Super value for money. Quick delivery as always. Highly recommended.

    I’ve worn this on the bike on a couple of cross town trips but I bought it for off the bike hikes. It’s light and close fitting and perfect for active daily lockdown walks as the cold begins to bite. I’ve worn it pretty much every day since it arrived and it’s fast becoming my go-to – parallel to my Mistral foul weather jacket when I’m on the bike for serious rides this time of year. I’ve also worn it in light showers and it stood up fine. Great job Galibier.

    Received my new jacket last week and have used it 3 times already once on the road in the rain and twice on the mtb in wet and muddy conditions, it performed excellently keeping me completely dry and warm! Was also great to have the option of two colours of which the orange is perfect for being able to use in low light conditions

    Received my jacket yesterday, wore it last night in heavy mist with a t shirt underneath. Walked 4km and arrived home bone dry. Great piece of kit, waterproof,warm and well made.
    Didn’t get any socks though

    I have just received my new jacket. I’ve always wanted a more causal jacket from Galibier that show cases the quality and style and can also be worn on and of the bike. I have now worn it a few times out walking and it not only feels as good as you’d expect but looks good to. I got the grey/orange and I can not recommend the jacket enough. This is the latest of a long list of my galibier wardrobe but the look and quality exceeds all that I have come to expect from this great brand. Keep up the good work.
    Ride safe.

    Chose the Grey/Orange jacket, the quality is great as always, quick free delivery. Yet to test the jacket in outdoor conditions yet so can’t comment on the temperature performance. The fit is good, I’m a 38″-40″ chest and chose Large size, pretty much a great fit. The seamless zip on the hood compartment is good and I love the design and style. All I could recommend for future versions would be some form of adjustment to tighten the hood. Thanks for the free Galibier socks too.
