The Ayacucho Dover Softshell is ideal for cycling and walking in cold weather, when you know the rain isn't going to bucket down. Fortunately, it only rains 7% of the time, in the Netherlands, at least. Of course, the fabric isn't going to wash away in the rain: it has a water column of 5000, which means you’ll stay warm and dry in a sudden shower of rain or snow. It also contains elastane, so you can easily move around in the jacket. The hood is easy to adjust and can also be detached, if you want.
