The thing with softshell...

The thing about a soft shell is that it replaces a few layers giving you a single technical layer that can be worn almost all of the time over a base layer.

We made our first soft shell in 2006 and we still see them at races and hacking round cities.

To be a true soft shell it should shed water but not be waterproof. This makes it very breathable and quick drying. It should also block out the wind and have insulation to keep you warm. And by having some stretch in the fabric it is easy to wear both in and out of activity and is very hard wearing.

In 2010 we introduced the barrier hoody, which was a sell out for winter.

This year we have introduced the Barrier Light for men and women with a few tweaks.

- A reduction in the weight of the jacket by using a loop back liner that also increased the warmth.
- Ribbed cuffs and waistband to stop the wind blowing in.
- Inner pocket and headphone loop.
- A second colour. Not everyone suits khaki.

It’s great for on and off the bike. To put on over your dirty kit post sport when cooling down. From house to bus to train to office, in and out of doors. Pre and post yoga and gym.

This means we should see them at races and hacking round cities in the next 6 years.

Weathermen say we're in for a cold snap. So it's a good thing our Winter jackets are on the way this November.

We've updated our classic BFJ down jacket and added an all-new midweight Whistler insulated jacket in there too. They are by far the best jackets we've made yet.

So keep a keen eye on our blogtwitter and facebook for more information on arrival dates. They'll be worth the wait, honest.

Riding home this evening through the lovely spring evening, I was reminded of one of my least favourite things that the warmer brings - little gangs of flies lying in wait for unwary cyclists. Every time I whizzed past a blossoming hawthorn bush, there they were in their dozens.

Time to get the sunglasses out and stop riding with my mouth open I think.

It's Still Cold

Our 'It's Still Cold' sale has been going well, and we've sold out of pretty much all the warm winter gear we had left

But even though it's sunny out, there's still a chill in the air and some warm layers certainly don't go amiss when getting ready for a day in the great outdoors.

So we went and had a good look around in our back warehouse and managed to find a few more things we can put into the sale.

There are some BFJ's

Merino vests

and some hats and scarves as well

All at great prices...

There's some other nice stuff as well, so head over the the mens and womens sections and check it out.

I have a feeling it wont last long!

Big Funky Jacket

This jacket really is the business.

Warm, comfy, squishy (a very important factor in my choosing of Winter jacket).

And as we plunge deeper into Wintery days, the more we sell - so if you're dithering whether to or not, dither no longer! Do it. Be decisive. Act quickly, they're selling like hot welsh cakes on a snowy day!
