Let's say you ride to a restaurant and it's sunny. When you're done with your meal, it's raining! If you have the Brooks Oxford Rain Cape conveniently rolled up under your seat, you won't get wet on the ride home! Traditional materials such as waterproof cotton and vegetable-tanned leather are combined with Brooks' exclusive tweed fabric that's woven with reflective threads for safety in low light. Taped seams and high-quality stitching ensure waterproof riding, and magnetic ties that hook over your handlebars while riding keeps your legs and feet dry!
