Best Jacket of 2012 - Road.cc
"The softshell jacket is one of my most-worn pieces in fall and spring".- Bill Strickland, editor of Bicycling Magazine and author of Tour de Lance.
"Fanatical detailing. My most worn and favourite cycling garment of 2012. 9/10." - Jo Burt, Road.cc
Truly British in its understated style and technical craftsmanship. With clever detailing tending to every cyclists needs - while attaining the holy grail of a garment that functions as well off the bike. I'm proud this is coming out of London - The 5th Floor.
The Softshell is an impressive bit of kit, one that has taken over daily duties - Brian Palmer, The Washing Machine Post.
THE VULPINE SOFTSHELL WILL RETURN IN NEW COLOURS AND ALL SIZES LATER THIS YEAR.
Created as the perfect mid-weight jacket for cycling in cool weather, yet subtle and stylish off the bike, the Vulpine Softshell has selectable reflective and visibility features so that you can ride safely, but flip back for your meeting/date/pint.
The design of the Vulpine softshell hints at British military tailoring, with its lined pocket flaps, traffic-facing shoulder bars and crisp lines. It is made of the finest dual-layer fabric, with an outer water-resistant, windproof layer bonded to a tightly fleeced inner layer. Tiny ventilation holes are laser-cut under the arms, where it counts.
At the front there are two hand pockets, closed via two tailored suit jacket style magnetic flaps. At the rear, two large, easily accessible cargo areas, one with magnetic contrast lined pocket flap, the other can fit a large lock. There is also a key and card zipped arm pocket on the right arm, with key carabiner. There are an additional two large inner front pockets, perfect for maps or Top Secret documents.
The softshell is ideal in cool to mild conditions, but also makes an excellent outer shell in the deep cold. The water-resistance is ideal for drizzle or a light shower, but please look to our Rain Jacket for really wet rides. Hard-wearing, the jacket is designed to perform and look great under the rigours of an active cycling and social life.

"I just wanted to drop you a line to say that the jacket is perfect in every way: length, shoulder width, arms... - it looks tailor made! Petros loves it, and I just earned myself some massive brownie points (as well as a stylish cycling partner). I'll let you know how he finds it on the road, but I can honestly say that it feels like a great piece of design. Thanks again, we'll be keeping an eye on you and spreading the word." - Elena
"Rolled over the 1000 mile marker with the Vulpine Softshell Jacket. it's been snowed & rained on, crashed in, sun baked and still looks new." - Alex
