It’s raining. It’s pouring. (and possibly snowing?) So forget juvenile, patterned rain boots, drugstore umbrellas, and your high school windbreaker. We’ve got just the right rain bike capes for spring bike riding that will stand up to the drizzle, and have got such great looks that you’ll be checking weather underground in hopes of seeing more chances of thunderstorms.

1.  Plaid Bike Rain Cape with 3M reflective piping for $250: TF Green is a traditional green Glen plaid with sharp 3M reflective piping. It is made of strong, waterproof (10K mm) microfiber with reliable Uretek zippers. Magnetic closures snap shut at armholes. Elastic thumb loops keep bike riders dry and secure. Classic look that’s built for performance from Cleverhood.

2. La Maitresse for $230.00: A fully-lined raincoat to wear when the skies look threatening and you plan to bike.  The silhouette is long and lean to flatter your figure and keep your legs dry. Ruching on the back and a slightly tailored waist add a distinctively feminine touch.  The gently sloping hood is roomy enough for any hairstyle. The visor keeps your mascara from running in the rain while biking.
