Any cyclist who intends to ride their bike throughout all four seasons is going to need a packable jacket – a light, stuffable garment designed to be pulled on for a chilly early start and lodged in a pocket should the sun provide some warmth.

Packable waterproofs often come with a few woeful cons to accompany the benefit of an added layer: rustling fabric, ability to catch the wind and puff the wearer up like a startled bulldog, and the feeling of being inside a not-very-warm sauna.
