Outerwear promises a blend of style with functionality of cycle gear

Water Off A Duck’s Back launches men’s Cycle Coat

British clothing company Water Off A Duck’s Back has launched a men’s Cycle Coat.

Designed and manufactured in England, the Cycle Coat is tailored and designed for cyclists who want to combine style with visibility, while keeping warm and dry.

Suited to men looking for a normal coat with the functionality of cycling outerwear, the Cycle Coat has been tailored to create the extra room in the shoulders and arms needed for cycling, while leaving the coat looking close fitting.

The machine washable, quick drying, crumple resistant Cycle Coat will retail for £140 RRP. It features unique hidden reflective panels and rolls into a small pack when not in use.

Designer and founder of Water Off A Duck’s Back Antonia Maybury commented on the Cycle Coat:

“I am delighted to launch our men’s coat. Since launching the women’s range we have had a huge amount of interest and it was a natural progression to branch out into menswear.

"Commuting as a cyclist is a fantastic mode of transport however there are times when you want to be able to look smart, professional and stylish as soon as you step off your bike. It was key for me to design a functional coat, creating something that would add to the experience of cycling whilst looking smart at the same time. Indeed you do not even need to be a cyclist to appreciate the look of the coat.”

Dealers interested in stocking the Cycle Coat can contact Maybury through the website www.wateroffaducksback.co.uk or at antonia@wateroffaducksback.co.uk

The Cycle Coat launched last week, the same week at Brompton’s Oratory jacket. There is a wealth of info and pics on Brompton’s offering in the new edition of BikeBiz, out this week.
