About Basil Rainwear

Don't give yourself any excuse to skip cycling this season. 

Basil's collection of Rainwear has a style and budget to suit any commute, keeping you warm, dry and comfortable on the bike while looking seamlessly stylish.


The Basil Rainwear collection is broken down into 3 key styles:

Comfort collection: "Hoga"  

taking inspiration from the Swedish coast, the Hoga series surpasses what you'd expect of rainwear in its class. The biggest difference is in the much higher-quality fabric with no savings spared on any features. Comfortable fitting and additional details to make a real point of difference.  


Urban collection: "Mosse" 

meaning Swedish area of marsh / swamp, is the perfect match to fit the tempo of the city. Going to work, to visit friends, heading to the cinema, cafe or just cruising, this series attracts any cyclist whose style is at the forefront. Yes, even when it rains. Function and fashion meet to provide a jacket that will take you from bike to work to shopping and back again. Loaded with all the features you've come to expect in high-end bicycle rainwear.  


Active/SPORT collection: "Skane" 

a name taken from the Swedish territory on the Baltic sea. Even on a rainy and windy day you can cycle to work. On the eBike or pushbike. You don’t have to take shortcuts on fabric, fit and functional properties. Skane is designed for the commuter and other outdoor activities. With its unique high vis patterning it is also a must-have for the busy commuters in all lights.
