We're sorry to be the bearers of bad news, but it appears that with the trees stripped bare of their leaves and the arrival of increasingly inclement weather, winter is well and truly here.
To mark the wet, cold and windy season, we've rounded up the best deals on four of our favourite waterproof cycling jackets.
Gore ONE GTX Active bike jacket —
Deals are thin on the ground for Gore's products, but the One GTX Active is so good that it would be mad not to include it in this roundup.
Using 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 —
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.
And better still, Paramo sells its overstock on eBay with a healthy discount.
Endura Women's SingleTrack jacket —
The SingleTrack is a great all-round 2.5 layer mountain bike waterproof with a rollaway hood, a dropped hem and zippered underarm vents.
The cut is slim enough to stop fluttering at high speed without being overly restrictive and can be had with a discount of up to 57% at Chain Reaction Cycles.
Sportful Fiandre WS LRR jacket SS —
If you're after a lighter jacket it's worth looking at a 'jerket' style jacket.
Our very favourite is the Sportful Fiandre, which is lined with Gore Windstopper and does a marvellous job of warding off the very worst weather.
