When shopping for a bike riding jacket, ensuring a good fit is key to comfort and performance.

Cycling jackets are designed specifically to fit the anatomy of the cyclist while on the bike. They are manufactured with a generic size chart e.g. S – XXL. To ensure the best fit for your bike riding jacket, measure:

The circumference of the widest part of your chest. Start at one armpit and wrap the tape around your body, ensuring the tape measure remains level. Your natural waist and hips. For men, this is a single measurement just above the hip bones. For women, measure the smallest part of your waist (usually at the bottom of the ribcage) and around the widest part of your hips including buttocks.

Take these measurements and compare them with the individual brand size guide on the online product listing to find the most suitable size. Note that sizes may vary between brands.

When choosing the size of your bike coat, it is also worth getting cycling base layers or cycling jerseys which can make you feel more comfortable during your ride. If you like to layer clothing or find yourself between sizes, we recommend choosing one size bigger.

Bike riding jackets have been designed specifically to protect the cyclist while maintaining aerodynamics. A typical cycling jersey will feature three pockets across the lower back. This deliberate placement removes the risk of drag and is also where the weight distribution of items is most effective.

So, if you’re the type to stash everything in your pockets and skip the bike saddle bags, make sure you account for this extra volume when choosing your jacket size. Often bicycle jackets will have a longer tail to accommodate this, and to help protect your lower back and backside while on the bike.

Once you have your size, consider the climate or weather conditions in which you will be wearing your cycling jacket. Different jackets offer different structural elements for comfort and protection. Some jackets may only be windproof, some only waterproof while others will be both. Cycling jackets come in a variety of materials, thickness, and weight.

If you are in a warm and humid environment, choose a lightweight waterproof jacket which will protect you from wind and rain but allow heat to escape. These cycling jackets are more commonly known as spray jackets. They are incredibly light and can be compressed into a very small space, which is a big advantage for riders.

For the cold-weather cyclist, pick a rain jacket style with a thermal lining, such as polar fleece. This will offer fantastic insulation against cold, wind and rain, and keep the body dry and warm in the harshest of winter weather conditions.

When you are riding outdoors, ensuring you are as visible as possible is crucial to your safety—especially in poor weather conditions. Whether you’re riding solo or in a peloton, you can increase your visibility by wearing a bicycle jacket with high viz colour and reflective strips.
