BikeRadar Bargains: Great deals on the best waterproof cycling jackets

It's official, summer has probably ended

After one blissful month of wall-to-wall sunshine the weather has come to a crashing halt with rain covering most of the UK. So, we thought it was an appropriate time to round up the best deals on our favourite waterproof cycling jackets from around the web.

The Endura MTR Emergency shell is the perfect jacket if you're looking for a lightweight do-it-all shell to pack away in your rucksack for when things turn foul. 

While it's not the hardest wearing jacket out there, it weighs a scant 135g and packs up small enough to stuff in a jersey pocket if needs be. 

Gore ONE GTX Active bike jacket — £220 £206.50

Deals are thin on the ground for Gore's products, but the One GTX Active is so good that it would be a sin to not include it in this roundup.

 Utilising the brand's innovative ShakeDry technology, the jacket weighs in at 109g for a size large and is among the most breathable we've tested. 

Paramo Quito jacket — £230 £159.99

While Paramo is best known for its high-end hiking jackets, the Quito is a multi-activity waterproof that is designed with an emphasis towards cycling. 

Using the brand's much-loved Nikwax Analogy waterproof material, the jacket is incredibly comfortable to wear even against skin and is easy to repair should you take a tumble out on the trail.

Castelli Tempesta race jacket — £300 £209.99
