Female specific Mistral foul weather Jacket

(1 customer review)

£72.76

A versatile cycling jacket, cut to compliment the female form. This will keep you warm when training in all weathers.

The possibilities of roads not yet ridden, sits open. We should not let the weather dictate our saddle time.

This Mistral is the forth evolution of our Foul Weather jacket and has evolved directly from customer feedback and new material technology.  The key to the garments success is the three-layer, German membrane, which is only 1.2mm thick; with only a light base layer you can train in comfort. The technical material will block fierce north winds and keep you warm in November downpours.

The garment just works to protect you cycling …..when it’s not summer. “Best money I have ever spend on anything cycling”

The material is now DWR treated before production, giving the material a lasting water shedding treatment. Ask around or search for reviews and comments from cyclists who use this jacket.  There are lots of soft shell fabrics out there,  The goal of this jacket is to keep you warm while riding in ALL conditions and the latest Mistral is does this seamlessly. We are delighted to also offer a female specific cut with this garment.

The soft-shell is water resistant, but due to the superior body stretch of the material, the seams cannot be internally taped, so in downpour, the rain will eventually get through. The magic of the Mistral is that you will not get cold, being 100% windproof and with a breathable rating of over 10,000.

Use with only a base layer from only 5 to 14 degreesC.  Layer with a long sleeve jersey and it will perform down to freezing.

 

 

One of our riders who used it on a recent event describes it best :

“I had a warm chest, on a fast descent, in a thunderstorm…unreal”

  1. Just an auld doll on a bike

    Apparently I’m now a ‘Galibier Girl’*

    As it stands….I’m more your ‘fair weather cyclist’ as I’m not a massive fan of discomfort in me auld age.

    While I haveindeed been bitten by the bike bug, I still consider anyone out on the roads (intentionally) in the rain as hardcore and would tend to side eye them ‘are yiz wise in the bap like’

    Got caught out in hailstones one evening at the back of Castlewellan, started out baltic but dry then got hit with a hailstone deluge much to my dismay.

    Was quickly reassured I had invested wisely when it became apparent that nothing was getting through this jacket…

    Neat fitting cuffs,I was surprised with the effort needed to get them over my hands initially, however, not *too* neat that your circulation is cut off and once on, snug and secure when accompanied by the Barrier Deep Winter gloves. No draft up your arms nonsense….

    Despite the sturdy fabric, the fit is highly flexible, non-restrictive, with a zip pocket accompanying three roomy back pockets and nice high funnel neck, with a covered zip, which actually *didn’t* choke me.

    Over estimated the layering required and had a UA ColdGear turtle neck on, unecessary layering which led me to over heat. Won’t make that mistake again 🙂

    Was hesitant about the mainly black for visibility (I’ve a ‘thing’ about all black/all dark kit on cyclists, might think they have the James Bond vibe on a bike but I feel it’s not fair on other road users) but the hi-vis back centre flash put paid to that.

    Great to see female specific quality gear, as I’m not your average skinny cyclist, appreciated the accommodating bewb room and my waist wasn’t swamped due to the clever fabric cut.

    Lightweight,(but not light enough to tuck away mid ride in a backpocket) substantial protection.

    Definitely feel way better prepared now with this jacket, will consider clocking up more ‘less than sunny miles’

    *comment from club mate, clearly impressed with my taste.
