The design brief for the Spatz 'SHIELD' winter jacket was very simple: Design and produce the only cycling jacket you will need to train/ride through a harsh winter, regardless of the conditions.

We are very proud to say that this product is designed, tested and manufactured in the North of England and is made of 100% recycled fabrics too. Water repellent coatings are plant based and PFC free, and the packaging is fully compostable.

The cut of the Spatz 'SHIELD' winter jacket is close and aero whilst allowing room for Spatz base layer(s) to nestle comfortably below. In true Spatz style, the neck is cut high and the arms are cut close and long. The front of the jacket is trimmed short for comfort in a cycling position and the rear flap is cut long to protect you from spray.

As lifetime cyclists (and a double Olympic Champion), we spend a lot of time on a bike in the cold. It was important to add such features as; 3x rear pockets, a zippered rear coin/phone pocket AND an additional mesh chest pocket (designed for gels, bars and litter and offering easy access on the bike, especially with gloved hands). We have added reflective banding to the rear of the jersey and 360 degrees around the neck cuff. Logos are dark grey reflective print for a stealth aesthetic that glows up bright in the traffic.

For the main body and upper arms, we have specified 'Wintex Pro' fabric. 'Wintex Pro' simply outperformed all the other fabrics we tested for this application. It is not only waterproof and windproof but also thermal, highly breathable and incredibly comfortable. The fabric offers 4-way stretch and has a brushed fleece lining to trap warm air and encourage moisture to wick away. It functions brilliantly with our legendary Spatz Base Layers.

The rear panel is PFC free, plant based DWR coated Roubaix fabric to allow articulation, warmth and breathability. Again, this fabric has a brushed fleece internal face and 4-way stretch. The lower arm sections are made of the same hydrophobic Roubaix fabric and are cut to work in unison with the Spatz Gloves range to offer a seamless clothing system which integrates beautifully.

It has been our aim to produce our apparel in the UK since our incorporation in 2017. We are very pleased to have teamed up with Lusso in Manchester to manufacture this product with us. We have brought our design and technical knowledge and paired it with Lusso's legendary manufacturing expertise and attention to detail. Together we have produced what we think is the very best apparel currently available.
