Winter jackets come in many different varieties, most of which are designed to work in specific weather conditions. The Stolen Goat Climb and Conquer Winter Jacket is built for keeping you protected in the very worst the winter can throw at you. Unsurprising when you realise that Stolen Goat source all its clothing from Belgian clothing experts Bioracer. If there's one thing the Belgian's know about, it's cycling in horrible weather.

Riders with a long enough memory will be instantly transported back to the 80s and 90s thanks to a construction and material feel that more than just a little reminds us of the old Windtex style winter jackets we all used to wear. This is due mainly to the jacket being made almost entirely from Tempest Protect fabric, a fabric chosen specifically as it provides almost complete wind and waterproofing and incorporates a brushed fleece inner face to add to its thermal properties. The material itself is really thick and quite stiff, almost wetsuit like in feel, giving the jacket a proper substantial feel. A tall and soft collar and long cuffs also help seal you from the outside elements.
