First Look: K-WAY Roubaix Cape

We're not sure if K-Way still makes these great Roubaix capes, so hunt for them on Ebay.

No weather is too bad for a quick jaunt on the bicycle, this cycling cape will keep you mostly dry. The Roubaix is a classic, lightweight cycling cape designed to fit into its front pocket, so you can carry it with you all the time.

This original cycling cape is a waterproof loose fitting garment with a pac-a-way kangaroo pouch pocket at the front, zips hidden under the flaps and a fully adjustable hood with anti-drops binding and transparent side inserts.

The fixed hood comes with anti-binding plus a back drop ventilation opening. With windows designed into the hood for better visibilty when cycling, this rain cape will keep you both safe and dry.

100% waterproof nylon

Summary

We like the simple, practical design with good attention to detail, but without unnecessary frills. The front pocket is useful to carry small bits, or to pack the cape away and wear it around your waist. It is not suitable for swimming as you can't put your arms out to the sides.
