High functioning cycling jacket for effective protection against the harsh environments of cold and driving rain.

The garment goal of the Courchevel was to create a beautiful jacket to protect the cyclist when they ride under dark clouds or incessant headwinds, regardless of what bike or surface they are on.

It is not a Mountain bike jacket or a commuting jacket, we don’t believe in rules or uniform.  It is a jacket that will keep you protected when pedalling on the days when the rest of the world are in front of the TV. 

The Courchevel is a high performance rain jacket, although cut for cycling, you can wear it doing anything, outside. 

The fully seamed, sealed jacket is constructed from a soft, quiet, three-layer shell AquAVent fabric.  The durable outer layer is laminated with a high wicking mesh inner layer that efficiently moves moisture away from your skin and through the fluorine free membrane in the middle.

At the front, a 2-Way waterproof zip is partnered by long and effective arm pit ventilation zips, to regulate temperature.  There are handy cinch toggles at the bottom hem of the jacket, while the cuffs feature velcro straps and allow you to custom the fit for the conditions.

The under-helmet hood is drawstring adjustable in three directions, including field of vision. The hood brim is not too long,  just long enough for when you’re pedalling straight into some horizontal precipitation. A zip removable, HiViz drop tail, provides added protection against road spray and makes the rider more visible in low light conditions. Extra Silicone protection is printed onto the shoulders to minimise backpack wear.

The jacket has a minimalist look and offers the best protection in the very worst conditions while you look magnificent.

 Standard fit with room to be worn on top of other layers but without any excess fabric.

    Absolutely beautiful jacket and not just compared to “cycling” jackets. Windproof, waterproof, breathable, plenty of ventilation. It’s just an beautifully made garment. I love it. Oh the orange is really orange!

    This was a considerable treat, to look smarter after my commute. It’s just the ticket and I am happy indeed. It’s been assembled very skillfully – the seams are properly tidy – and the design and cloth are excellent quality. I think this is excellent value and it has been much admired by friends. The green is a great colour.

    The quality of this jacket is incredible. I ordered it at lunchtime the day it launched and it arrived at 9.30 the next morning, just in time for torrential rain. it kept me cosy all day.
    The next day it kept me warm and dry for several hours of snowball fights with the kids, and every time I’ve worn it since.
    The perfect jacket for a Northern Irish winter so far, and although i am sure it would be a great jacket for wet MTB rides, I don’t want to get it muddy as then I won’t be able to wear it! The green colour is beautiful, and it feels quality. I’m 6ft, 90kgs and XL is perfect.

    Great jacket, and boy is it orange!!
    Bought loads of Galibier gear recently and love the quality and fit, and the prices too!
    I always buy medium but this time had to exchange for Small, I’m 5’10” and 70kg. Only downside, a bit of reflective stuff on the wrists for signalling, and a hangy-up thing inside or below the hood.
    But again, a great product, perfect for my ride into work!

    With advancing age and “race weight” being a thing of the past; I am increasingly ambivalent about “The Rules” and want my gear to be functional, good value and something that looks as good in the cafe as it does out on the trails/road. This is where Galibier comes in. I already have the insulated puffa jacket that is so good looking that part of me does not want winter to end….I commute to work feeling all warm and toasty in that bad boy and then later can walk over to the coffee shop wearing it and not look out of place. Not many performance cycling jackets can do that.

    So when I saw the Courchevel Storm Jacket drop, I asked myself do I need this? Can I afford this? Do I want this? No, No and Yes. Delivered in usual Galibier hyperspeed. I went for the orange and the first thing that hits you when unpacking is, well, it is ORANGE. Possibly a bit loud for everyone’s taste but I think that it looks dope.

    Today was a perfect day to test it on a New Forest gravel ride. Chucking down with rain and 40mph winds. Perfect weather for a storm jacket and boy was I glad that I had it. The jacket performed brilliantly, no water ingress and the protection from the wind was way better than I have had with more expensive, dedicated wind jackets. One section of my ride today was a small road section up a false 2% flat into a block 40mph headwind. Rather unpleasant. However, no wind got through and my upper body was nice and protected.

    I did cycle for a bit with the hood up and found it personally a bit claustrophobic for riding, but am glad that the hood is there as I would use it if the rain was a bit harder, but more to the point, this is likely to be more than a cycling jacket and I can see me wearing it out on walks etc.

    I am 5ft 10 and a bit larger on the chest than I would like. I went for the XL as like a more relaxed comfortable fit and don’t give two damns about aero. Due to that, the length of the jacket and the arms may be considered a bit too much for some, but for me it was bang on.

    All in all, an absolute treat. A quality bit of kit that looks brilliant. Can’t wait to see what Galibier come up with next….am hoping for some casual summer gear for gravel/adventure riding 🙂 Thanks guys for another great design at a great price.

    Absolutely cracking foul weather jacket.

    Really good build, excellent specs.

    Windproofing – 10. Its a thick membrane and completely windproof. Reasonably heavyweight, so doesn’t flap around in the breeze.

    Coldproofing – 7. Its lined, but it will transfer the cold in after a while.

    Rainproofing – 10. Suitable for all deluged up to and including Old Testament levels of downpour.

    Cut – 8. Long arms, long back, doesn’t bunch up in the chest or stomach too much. Hood is great, although sometimes obscures over-shoulder.

    Fit & Finish – 10. Stitching and cutting well above what you should reasonably expect for £90. It is remarkably orange as well.

    Recommended without hesitation for urban/commute and MTB. Probably a bit bulky and not aero enough for you roadies.
