Cycling or not?
One jacket, no more hassle.
We took the best out of cycling and hiking jackets and combined it into one sleek jacket.
Super practical and awesome look.
You're not only giving new jobs to unemployed plastic bottles, you're also making huge savings on water and energy used.
My husband and I ordered jackets in different colours and we both LOVE them. They helped us survive storm Denis when our friends wearing big name waterproofs got soaked.
I am a size 10 and ordered a small and it's roomy but good. My husband originally ordered a large (his normal size) but sized down to a medium which fits much better. The return was so easy and super speedy!
Fantastic coat. Comfortable, lightweight but super warm. I love it.
Slim fit and gorgeous colour and awesome for cycling !
I'm super impressed with the jacket - the colour is vibrant, the white and orange zipper looks pretty modern and fashionable, the service was quick and easy, and the fit is great!
Super comfy and lightweight. Worn it in minus degrees recently with a single base layer underneath and it was perfect. I did however stay true to size even though it says to size down for women - preferred having a bit more room to move around and fit a jumper underneath. No regrets!
Looks great, feels soft, happy present- receiver
Bought this jacket for my fiancé’s birthday. She absolutely loves it, been used for hiking and cycling in all weathers and will be coming skiing with us aswell!
I love how functional this jacket is. Especially love the secret sleeve pockets that make me feel like I’m in Minority Report (without the murder) when I tap into the tube.
Great jacket,love the pattern. Just beware if you've got any kind of hips or bottom the jacket might be a little snug around that area.
Amazing jacket! I am really happy about it! I bought it as a present for my boyfriend and loved it so much that I bought one for myself too. It’s both stylish and practical. I thought about using it for cycling but ended up wearing it whenever is windy or rainy outside too. Just great!
I love the jacket. It fits perfectly.
I liked my jacket so much, I bought my hubby one too. He is warm and dry and loves the dark green with orange zips. The material is softer and warmer than topical waterproofs.
After buying the jacket I'm finding so many little things that I had no idea were there! As a rather short but not petite person I really love the bottom zip allowing you to open from both ways. Makes it so much more flexible and convenient! I'm finding the waterproofing excellent, it really is waterproof. I live in a country of constant rain and this has become my go to when heading outdoors. The colour is also stunning and the material is actually soft to touch,no crinkling around the place in this jacket!
Best bit is the adjustable hood because it doesn't fly off in the wind.
I gave this jacket to my cousin a Christmas gift. She loved it and it received praises from everybody else - stylish and ecological, can’t go wrong! :)
I love that the jacket is made from recycled plastic. It did need to be aired when it came out of the bag but then it smelled fine after a day or two. I purchased it for my daughter and she loves it, especially all the well thought out features as she is an avid cyclist. It's a bit small but the company is being great about exchanging it.
The jacket fits perfectly to my BF. Loving it!
I chose this jacket as was looking for a decent waterproof that had more of a casual style than most outdoor clothing brands.
Really happy with it so far. It has been very useful with the recent rainy weather. I've found that the design of the hood works well and the big pockets are very handy!
This jacket is GREAT, I use it to cycle, hike and everyday life! I LOVE the eco and ethical commitment as well as the customer service quality that is simply the BEST I have ever seen. I highly recommend you to get this super rain coat!
So happy about my new jacket!
I'm really happy about my first Labo Mono jacket. I love the design (Marker). I'm thinking about buying a second one :)
Just tried it out and I'm really impressed. The things I thought would work well did and it's much warmer than it seems. The adjustable cuffs are a dream and the stretch in them meant even though I forgot to put my wheelchair gloves on before putting my jacket on I didn't have to take the jacket off and put the gloves on and put the jacket back on 😅 the reach in the arms is awesome for full use of wheels. Another thing I really like is the o ring pull this is actually super helpful for people who have issues with grip or holding onto small things. The hood was a bit hard for me to get out so for wheelchair users with dexterity worse than mine that could be an issue but once out it was easy to use and actually stayed up which is a huge issue wheelchair users have. I'm also in love with the pattern! It's so nice to have a piece of clothing that fits my access needs and also looks fashionable.
Really please with it. Fits well, waterproof, large pockets... Perfect.
I really like the soft feel of the material and being able to see proper with the hood up. I love that it is made of re-used plastic bottles. It is also actually waterproof and not many jackets are in Scotland.
I saw this raincoat on a suggested add on Instagram and was instantly drawn in due to it being made from recycled bottles. I’d been on the hunt for a new raincoat and loved the whole concept and colours of this brand! So with my birthday coming up it was the perfect birthday present! After much deliberation I settled on the green and I absolutely LOVE it! Really well made, so many great features, really comfy and so many useful pockets! I particularly like how deep the front ones are and the secret arm pocket it great for storing emergency biscuits! Ideal when you have a toddler in need of bribery haha! The only problem I found was the size, the advice for sizing on the website is a bit confusing and according to this advice I should have gone for an XXS but I know I’m not that small so went for an XS this however was too small. When I got in touch about an exchange they got back very quickly, were super helpful and because I lived local even met me to exchange the coat! Fantastic customer service! Long story short great brand, great coat!
I love this jacket! It's been a bit too cold in Canada to wear it often, but it's perfect for wet snow days out. Love the bright colors and many pocket options!
I love this jacket so much! The pattern and colours as well as the zipped pockets, hood with extra brim to stop rain getting on my glasses and the reflector flaps on the wrists, it's the bee's knees!
I've been using it in summer time, near the campfire to get a good rest from mosquito's. Now using it everyday on my moped to stay dry under or cut the wind from going into my clothes. Easily fits in my bag, I love it. Didn't size up and fits perfectly with a hoodie, I can even (tightly but still can) put it on top of a small jacket, due to the subtle elasticity in the fabric. If you plan to use it on something bigger, I would size up. Pockets are well placed and sized. Good quality zippers, satisfying to use. Every parts in it feel like quality stuff. Glad I participated in the kickstarter. Other than the practical stuff, I love the designs and the ethical and friendly marketing approach from Ali.
Lovely soft to the touch jacket - loving the inside pockets and sleeve pockets too very snazzy ;) and practical with functional hood and fully waterproof! Looking forward to what might come next...
Very happy with my fabolously green jacket, especially the hood which fits really well over a biking/climbing helmet and doesn't restrict my head movements. Quality feels really good! My only minor gripe is that the arms are a little bit short (size S and 179 cm)
I'm super happy to have backed the kickstarter for the Urban jacket and really pleased with the product, I wear it everyday!
This is a really well thought out jacket. It's got all sorts of little thoughtful touches, like all the hidden zip pockets, pocket sizes that you can actually fit a women's wallet in, a length that actually covers your butt, the high viz cuffs, armpit ventilation, and my favourite, the stretchiness. I think there are enough reasons to buy it even if you don't care that it's made of recycled plastic bottles. The only thing I'd put on my wishlist for future versions would be a zipper that slides slightly more easily, so you can do it up with one hand while you're cycling.
An amazing quality product, amazing textures and plenty of small details that make the difference from the other brands. There is so many hidden features like the sleeves pockets, under arms zip... Thanks a lot I don't regret it at all
Received this jacket a few weeks ago, just before the colder months and was able to use it a few times (the weather QUICKLY changed to arctic weather here in eastern canada!)
Very very good jacket - keeps you warm (unless in sub-zero temps, but it isn't designed for that!), keeps you dry, saves you from the wind, and it is very light. I love the colours too! My girlfriend got the green one and I got the blue one, which have the perfect colour tones!
I definitely recommend this jacket
I was looking for a new waterproof jacket and within a few days a targeted Instagram ad hit my feed. I was immediately intrigued!
I am thrilled with my new acquisition. A proper urban super hero jacket.
And it is so difficult to resist when Ali is giving you his sales speech - a lot of passion when into this venture !
I know that this jacket has been branded towards cyclists (for good reasons, the reflecting parts and all), but I don't cycle very often and still love wearing it! It's comfy and protects me perfectly when raining, and rain in the UK is just a normal day (when September starts) so it helps me to stay warm and dry every day. I love the vibrant pattern design, it matches well my clothes and style, and I fell comfortable to wear it when hanging out. Not your usual jacket!
I was excited about the jacket before it arrived, but once it did, I was impressed with how well done it is. The cut is very nice (not too tight in the neck like so many jackets I've purchased), the reflector flaps are delightful, the zipper is fun to play with—I could go on and on. The inner pocket is such a nice touch and perfect for carrying my phone while I ride my bike. I'm buying another jacket so that I won't so conspicuously be wearing the same one every day.
Been living with the Urban Jacket in Salamander M for around a month now. Start off by saying I really love this jacket. I'm 6ft2 slim build and the Medium is long enough for when I cycle and still fitted to be comfy. It's super highly visible which makes me feel safe when cycling through the city on my commutes. I've used it for a variety of things; taken it up Snowdon in 4degC, worn it to client meetings, general hikes, walks and bike rides. It performs well at all of these things but there are a few things that draw it back. When cycling it can get a bit sweaty in the jacket - I'm a relatively athletic guy but if I commute in above 9degC in the jacket even with the pit vents open I tend to get a little sweaty (commute its less than 20 mins - no rucksack). The cuffs also I found a little tight even though they are elasticated with the 2 different tightness options - really clever how they did this with a reversible strap, however, I would personally like a little wider opening to start with. Hidden pockets on the inside are a really great feature, and usefully the perfect sizes to fit all the things I tend to carry when commuting - ID, phone, AirPods. The tightening cords have just about the right length in them to tailor the hood and the base of the jacket to get more customisation in fit when in some more extreme weather circumstances too. The slight stretch in the material also gives it a comfortable feel when being slightly more active in the jacket.
Overall this jacket is great - there are a few things that are drawbacks to this jacket but the positive heavily outweighs the negative, especially at the price point. It is incredible value for money. In terms of performance I would put in a similar bracket to the Patagonia Could Ridge or Quandry, but at a much more accessible price point. Quality jacket for a great price.
Its a very useful jacket, I use it every day for my daily bike rides, even for the office. My colleagues like it too!
the multitudes of pockets are very practical, especially for the transport card! I recommend 100%
So. As I had to move to Paris, I thought "Well, it might be an great idea to ride a bike instead of sweating with strangers in the metro". Then I thought "but hum, it's gonna rain a lot. Jo, you don't have any rain clothes. Oh Jo, you're gonna regret it, you'll pick the NAVIGO pass for surOH WAIT WHAT IS THIS BRAND NEW JACKET LABOMONO IS LAUNCHING ?"
And now, what do I think about it ? I'm wearing it everyday since I've received it and I'm in love with it.
The pros : The windbreaker is efficient, as well as the waterproof effect. For the first time in my life, I can cycle under the rain without sweating like a pig. Thank you so much for that. My new co-workers are thankful to you too. The hood is easily and smartly adjustable. Even if you're tall, the jacket nicely covers your butt in any circumstances. Pockets are super big and handy. As I'm using it so frequently, I didn't have the time to try the packable aspect of it, but I'm sure it works well ! Finally, I love green. And the reflective mode is cute. Cute because it will never be enough to survive in the jungle that is Paris. Or maybe you saved my life during this whole time. We'll never know.
The tiny cons if you're asking me : It might be because I should have picked a size bigger, but the first time I tried to put my hands in the pockets, it felt a bit weird. I'm not used to have pockets so far from each other, but now it's completely okay. Especially if it gives the packable option to the jacket. My second true recommendation would be about the hood and the velcro that closes it. I would have reversed the smooth and the scratchy side, because when the hood mood is on, the scratchy side is exposed and can get easily caught in random stuff. Maybe you thought about it and it's better this way, I don't know!
That's all for me, thanks again ! It would have been a pleasure to send you a photo of me testing the jacket under the shower, but you know Paris, my appartement is too small for me and a photographer.
I've been using my Labo mono for two weeks now and I discover a new reason to love it every day. It's really impressive how much thought has gone into these jackets. Super comfortable and super functional. Very happy customer :)!
