    Hi All,

    Considering buying this jacket as it's stylish (compared to typical jackets), yet is waterproof and reflective:

    http://www.vulpine.cc/uk/men-s-nightfall-commute-jacket-in-dark-navy

    It's quite steep though. Not totally averse to the price if I can get 10% off first order by subscribing to their newsletter but can anyone recommend viable alternatives with the same features?
     
  2. Pockets are often useful. This jacket does not have any.

    Thanks for the heads up on that one - I usually need somewhere for phone wallet and keys.

    Have a look at always riding for stylish commute wear.

    Perhaps the latest version does have pockets now:

    "The Nightfall Jacket has a reflective print design which somehow manages to look quite stylish, not a word we ever use for reflective garments. It’s made from a waterproof and windproof fabric so it’ll keep you dry and warm, and there are vents under the arms to stop you overheating when racing home for tea. There are plenty of pockets including two waterproofed zipped pockets. Meanwhile, a soft internal lining provides insulation and there are shoulder pads for comfortably wearing backpacks."

    Me too, or would have snapped that up. They were reduced in Black Friday sale to around £144 I think, but not reduced at all in current sale unfortunately.

    Personal view but looks like seventies wrapping paper on a regular cycling jacket. For that reason I'm out
