I’m sorry to break it to you, but it’s not summer any more. If, like me, that fact hasn’t quite sunk in and you’ve got caught in an unexpected downpour without proper protection over the last few days, then it might be worth investing in a good waterproof jacket to help keep you dry.
In the past, waterproof cycling jackets were simple pieces of kit, keeping water out, but also keeping it in as you overheated and sweated like a pig. However now there are lots to choose from that will keep you dry while also retaining breathability.
