  • The Featherlite™ Vélo Jacket uses PERTEX® fabric which contains a Durable Water Repellency (DWR) as the first barrier to keeping you dry. Clean your garment in order to maintain this.
  • Machine wash in warm water at 40°C/104°F with a mild detergent. MONTANE® recommends that you use Nikwax Tech Wash.
  • Do not use fabric softeners or bleach.
  • Drip dry.
  • Your jacket may need occasional re-proofing to restore the DWR. MONTANE® recommends Nikwax TX Direct.

My favourite Windproof/waterproof cycling jacketCustomer Rating

I have purchased the Featherlite jacket 3-4 years ago so I’ve put it through a lot of abuse. Ever since then I did not get a different one. The jacket has everything I need for my commute or week-end cycles. I live on the west coast of Ireland with rain and wind constant companions. This jacket protects me from both and the extra additional chill factor. I often came soaked from cycles, but never cold. The jacket is light, easy to carry around and waterproof. I would warmly recommend it to anyone.

Great jacketCustomer Rating

I have one of these jackets and its saved me from hyperthermia more than once. The jacket folders up rediculiously small and it a great fit. It has hi-vis sections to make you more visable and the cuffs are great and secure. I'd recommend it

Good Bike JacketCustomer Rating

I been using one of these jackets for a while for work, teaching mountain biking, it is great for keeping warm at the start of a ride whipping off when it gets hot and it packs so small so it doesn't take up space in the bag. We have also started giving the same jackets to the clients for the same reasons. If there is a downfall it is they don't react well to being thown down the track with the rider inside but then body armour is probably needed not jacket ...

Super light and packableCustomer Rating

Great for cooler spring / autumn rides or just as a general emergency windproof. It easily stuffs into a jersey pocket and you hardly notice it's there. It's breathable enough that you don't sweat too much when riding hard, and in a light shower it keeps the rain off long enough to get home.
