Unbelievable piece of kit for the money. This is certainly one of the best Rotten weather jackets I have ever used. Tried and tested during an impromptu snow/sleet storm where I was drastically unprepared. All the rest of my kit failed but this jacket certainly did not! My core and base layer were bone dry beneath the jacket. This jacket will be put through its paces on the Highland Trail 550 this year and I have full faith it will be up to the task and more. Well done guys on another well designed product!

This jacket kicks butt. I use it to commute around Paris,FR and when it’s really cold, wet or both, this jacket does the job. The waterproofing is top knotch and the high-vis orange is, well, high-vis. If it’s not lower than 5°C outside, you risk overheating even with the armpit holes open, especially if carrying a backpack but even without a bag it gets pretty warm. That is to say the it is pretty darn windproof as well. I wanted this jacket for an on and off the bike garment. It’s great for walking around in crummy weather and the hood cinch and wrist cuffs work brilliantly. The inner breast pocket is super useful as well as the large side pockets with zip closers. You don’t see jackets of this quality at this price. Pairs really well with the orange Galibier sythetic thermal base layer. Service and shipping was fast and efficient.Thanks Galibier.

Very pleased with my purchase. Was contemplating between this and a Rapha winter commuter jacket, and this one won me over, and I’m extremely happy with my purchase. Fit is perfect, I’m 187cm bought a medium and it fits just right. Have worn it in mild wet rides so far, and some icy winds and it’s been both good at keeping me warm but also not overheating. Feel very confident leaving the house with this jacket. (I know it’s made for the trails, and will definitely be using it out there as well, but needed a multi-purpose and I’m very happy and impressed with the quality)

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.
