Bryter LayterWaterproof Jacket
Bryter Later, Pearson’s first waterproof is named after the second album by Nick Drake. Released in 1971, the unusual spelling was entirely in keeping with the idiosyncratic nature of the famously eccentric musician. It’s also a nod to something every cyclist knows – that, however bad the weather, the rain will always pass. Until it does, the jacket’s lightweight fabric will keep out both wind and rain and is also highly breathable. Read the full story here
Made from 100% recycled nylon, and boasting a 20,000mm hydrostatic head waterproof rating, the jacket features taped seams for maximum weather resistance. A high-cut collar blocks unwelcome draughts, while the elasticated drawstring waist ensures a close fit. Articulated sleeves allow an excellent range of motion, and elasticated sleeves keep your wrists snug. When not in use, the jacket is easily stowed and folds down small enough to fit into a jersey pocket. A covered zip housing and soft, comfort panel prevent chafing around the neckline.
A reflective chevron on the chest, back and shoulder, and Pearson reflective rose emblem on the dropped back make for extra safety in the low light conditions that blight the nation over the winter months.
