Tempest Pro jacket

(6 customer reviews)


Light-weight and packable ‘out-of-the-pocket’ jacket, that combines technical weatherproofing and great breathability.

The Tempest jacket provides you with the high level of protection of our Tourmalet jacket but in a lighter, packable construction and still as breathable as ever. Our fabric mill has managed to reduce the thickness of the HydraStop material used in the Tourmalet without reducing its effectiveness. The jacket will take everything that the weather can throw at it and at only 164 grams (large), will fit easily into its own stuff bag and into any jersey pocket.

As befits a high function garment, the jacket is tailored to be very close fitting with no excess fabric to slow you down. The sleeves are constructed in a three-piece design making them extremely sleek and enhancing the fit.  There are taped seams throughout, doubled stitched for durability. A storm proof zip and high collar keeps you protected when the skys open. There is also a wind guard/baffle behind the zip, in addition to a zip garage, which keeps out wind and rain. On the collar a softer cotton material helps prevent any discomfort on the neck.

High function/High performing- 4 season garment.


Available in Zinc Orange or Petrol Blue


One of our testers who used the Tempest for 5 months:

“Road for 3 and a half hours with three heavy showers during it. Never felt wet or the need to take it off in between”

“A fantastic lightweight jacket with impressive breathability”

    Not one to write reviews, but this wee jacket saved me yesterday and today. Rolls up small in an interior bag so you don’t notice it in the pocket. Sublime finish, better than anything I own. Got caught in a surprise 30 min heavy shower and a less surprising 1 hour rain storm today. The jacket breathed well and no rain got through. Highly recommend.

    I have owned this jacket for most of the summer and it has saved me from my Scottish weather forecasters. Very light, and sits neatly in my frame bag. Keeps the worst rain out for an hour and keeps you warm for the rest. I crashed and ripped my Castelli Rain jacket and this was the replacement at half the cost, with the same function and I think a bit more breathable.

    Brilliant piece of kit and should be in every riders back pocket.

    Wore my Tempest Pro jacket for the first time during my latest 100 mile ride. The forecast was rain all day, so I packed the jacket into one of my rear pockets. 90 minutes in and I had to put The Tempest Pro on. For the next 2 and a half hours I rode in heavy rain, up Dovers HIll, Saintbury hill and Snowshill yet once the rain stopped I was nice and dry. The inside of the jacket was dry too which I have never had before. Everything else I have always sweated up in.
    I just wish it had a pocket on the rear for food rations
    Thank you Galibier.

    I was lucky enough to get an early version of this to test. I basically battered it in all sorts of weather on and off road. 3/4 hours in the pissing rain aren’t a problem for the tempest. This is a problem for me, now I need another excuse in foul weather not to ride. The tempest should do a mud guard, then we wouldn’t get wet at all. Outstanding piece of kit, and for £60. Ridiculous.

    I don’t normally write reviews, but the speedy service and the quality of this jacket has prompted me to do so on this occasion. I bought the Tempest jacket because it got some very good reviews in cycling magazines, even when compared to much more expensive offerings from bigger brands. I have been very impressed so far. The jacket has already experienced some good Scottish downpours and the waterproofing and breathability are excellent. In terms of sizing, I’m 6’2″, 42″ chest, and 83kg. The sizing chart states that XL is the best fit for me, although also says that I should go up a size for a more relaxed fit. I therefore bought the XXL and I consider the fit perfect. It’s not tight, but certainly not loose. There is enough room for suitable layering beneath for cold days. Keep up the good work, Galibier!
