Tradition is revisited with the Mac Softshell, a slick urban cycling jacket from UK fine bike gear creators, Rapha. Fully technical and modern in construction, the styling pays homage to the British Mackintosh overcoat from days gone by. The shell is breathable, water-shedding Schoeller C-Change—aka the “bionic climate membrane,” and “the better GoreTex” according to some—with its teflon-type coating. Mac-inspired flair includes rear pocket, metal fittings, button-down storm flap, and checked lining. To put the Mac Softshell in total sartorial context, a history of this bit of classic British outerwear is provided in Return of the Mac. Riding with the past… Fun.
