No-compromise rainwear for when the barometer spirals downward but you need to keep the pedal to the metal. Mechanical venting at your chest and arms keeps you cool at speed, while the tape-sealed 3 layer HydroFoil™ Plus fabric keeps out the wet.
Specifically developed for high aerobic activities, HydroFoil™ Plus combines a lightweight ripstop nylon shell with a composite membrane that is completely waterproof, totally windproof and extremely breathable. The outer fabric is the latest new-generation Pertex® Shield+ membrane. It is more than twice as breathable as most other quality waterproof-breathable fabrics, and has a small amount of stretch allowing a closer fit. The outer fabric is treated with a durable water repellent finish that encourages rain to bead up and roll off, while there is a lightweight tricot mesh on the inside for greater durability and improved moisture dispersion.

▹ Which jacket is best for me?
▹ How waterproof is it?
▹ How breathable is it?
I wore my new anti cyclone jacket biking over on the west coast and we had a few days of cold rain. The Jacket was perfect, and I knew from comments from the others I was keeping warmer and staying drier. I also found the front vents were perfect pockets to stash anything that you want easy to access to, and could hold a surprising amount
Bought this product as I needed an absolute waterproof jacket and it is certainly that - like water off a duck's back so to speak! It is also a good barrier against icy winds. The jacket is pricey but well made and should provide protection for many rides to come.
As advertised - dry in a downpour, bright for cycle commuting, plenty of zips for ventilation, small and light for the degree of waterproofing, breathable. Hood is fantastic - if you might be on the bike in freezing rain and wind, stopping the rain trickling down the back of your neck is a must
Recently purchased the anti cyclone few months back,brought it after reading online reviews,glad I did first test was a fully days riding in the rain it was awesome the only moisture that got me was my own sweat
I pondered often which replacement would suit; rain or shower proof. The Anti Cyclone is my choice for commuting, exposed ridge tops in any forecast and ski touring. First impressions were of another quality GE design and construction with an excellent fit for my long thin body. Riding has confirmed a "no flap" jacket with surprisingly good ventilation control from the arm zips. The fabric sheds water really well and you can batten down the wrists and neck for a dry commute. It can get a bit sweaty in warm conditions all zipped up tight when I'm pressing on but it's very comfortable in cold damp conditions.
