Defying the chill and the rain, the Courchevel is not just another cycling jacket. It’s an embodiment of the spirit that ventures out when others stay indoors, whether it’s the mountains, city streets, or winding trails. It’s not about being bound by labels like mountain biking or commuting, but about embracing the freedom of the ride, whatever the setting.

Constructed with a high-performance, three-layer AquAVent fabric, this jacket effortlessly marries function and style. The outer layer is robust, while the inner high-wicking mesh layer efficiently transports moisture away. Sandwiched between these layers is a fluorine-free membrane that ensures optimal breathability and moisture control.

A front-facing 2-Way waterproof zipper, combined with extended underarm ventilation zips, enables you to manage body temperature with ease. Adjust the fit to your liking with cinch toggles at the hem and Velcro straps at the cuffs. The hood, designed to fit snugly under a helmet, can be adjusted in three ways to ensure an unhindered field of vision. Its carefully designed brim offers adequate protection against the onslaught of horizontal precipitation.

For enhanced safety and functionality, a zip-removable HiViz drop tail enhances visibility during low light conditions while shielding you from road spray. The addition of silicone on the shoulders reduces wear from backpacks, ensuring the jacket remains pristine for longer.

While its minimalist design makes a subtle statement, the Courchevel promises unwavering protection in the harshest conditions. It has a standard fit, allowing room for additional layers without any fabric bulk.

    Put simply this is the best foul weather jacket I have purchased, ever. I’ve bought them all over the years, from all the major manufacturers, and spent a small fortune in doing so. Then this one turns up and just does it all for a grand total of £92, off road riding in absolute comfort and bone dry at the end of the day. Buy one and be happy.

    One of the most versatile pieces of kit I have. I use mainly for commuting but also works really well for off the bike. Have used it hiking and for golf in really testing conditions. Would recommend this to everyone. I’m 178cms and M was perfect. Arms have a Velcro fastener too if you want to bring up the sleeves. Dark green colour is really nice

    Top quality jacket that out performs items at twice the price from other big name brands. Took this on holiday recently and I wear it on the damp days at home. I have cycled, hiked, socialized with it . The materials and cut are superb. I`m 185cm,85kg and the Large fits perfect. I have similar jackets costing 3 x the price from a few years ago made of Gore-Tex (thick gauge) fabric and I cannot tell the difference. This is a do it all jacket that is 100 % waterproof and can be packed down small if not required. The subtle reflective trims are a great touch and the overall build quality is superb. Another cracker piece of kit to embarrass the big brands.

    180cm, 39in chest, 75 kilos, got the medium and am happy with the fit. Plenty of room for layering underneath. I’ve gone for Large in other Galibier tops (Roubaix and base layers) but Medium in this is perfect.

    Got this as a Christmas present and haven’t worn it on the bike yet but have worn it on several hikes and it has kept me dry and comfortable in some rough enough weather.

    The materials and finish are premium quality and it has a lovely feel. Feels better than other jackets I’ve had from North Face, Berghaus etc which cost considerably more.

    Got the orange which certainly stands out!

    Great jacket off the bike and I’m sure it will be just as good on it.

    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!

  10. Brin (verified owner)

    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.

  11. Matt (verified owner)

    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!

  13. Deano (verified owner)

    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.
