The 'Cyclist Raincoat' is a fashionable unisex coat designed specifically for the needs of cyclists.

Cycling is a great way to commute, but it offers no protection from the elements compared to driving or taking a bus. While riders can wear a regular raincoat, their legs unfailingly end up soaked, and a poncho ends up billowing around dangerously and getting its wearer wet anyway.

Cyclist Raincoat, designed by Amsterdam-based company Senscommon, is a raincoat that works for both male and female cyclists. It is both waterproof and breathable due to its Hipora covering. What really makes it perfect for cyclists, though, is its slits up the front and back of the coat, allowing the trench-length coat to surround one's bicycle. It also comes with snaps at the front and back corners of these slits so that riders can clip the coat around their legs.
