If you ride enough, you will get caught in the rain. If you’re smart, you were watching the weather and brought a jacket with you. A good jacket, that will keep you dry from the weather outside, but that is ventilated enough that you won’t be soaked from sweat when you get to your destination.

Of course cycling jackets aren’t new. But they are generally bright colors, and may fit pretty snug. That’s great and good if you are going on a long ride, and not going out to dinner, or the bar or club. I won’t argue their effectiveness, but I will say that with the materials available today, a jacket that makes you look like crossing guard more than a fashionable man (or woman) about town isn’t necessary. There are a few companies that have brought products to the market that seem to offer the protection we need, the comfort we desire, and a look we prefer.

Griffin is based in the UK, and has worked on a number of different collaborations with some of the world’s biggest brands and manufacturers, they even one with Charge Bikes.
