Introducing the Cloak of Invincibility

IMG_2227

The Cloak, which does not actually make you invincible, or invisible, but will help keep you warmer and protect you from the elements, is a lightweight shell made from Eschler's supremely amazing E3 fabric which is among the most breathable in the world. It was designed ground up in house by us, which is another first for our little brand. 

We wanted something that we could keep in our backpack, that packed up into itself (and doubles as a nap time pillow), had a hood that wouldn't fall off our heads at speed, could go from the bike to the bar without detection, and wouldn't make us feel all clammy.  The fit is a slimish cut, and has been agreed upon by the All-City staff as "unisexy" (meaning we all wear it). Additionally it has clever darts of stretchiness in both the hood and cuffs and the sleeves are long enough to not creep up when in a riding position.

And that fabric....

Ooooh the fabric. We went top shelf for this one and chose Eschler's E3 fabric, renowned for its ability to breathe. Super bonus, it also doesn't make a bunch of gross crinkly noises when you move. The fabric is treated with a Durable Water Resistant finish to withstand light precipitation, although it is most definitely not a rain jacket.

The Cloak is available now in sizes XS-XL. MSRP is $120. If you're local shop doesn't have them in stock, ask them to order one up for you.
