Rainwear is available in all types and sizes. Consider functional rainwear for commuting, for example; technical rainwear for the athletic cyclist on a racing bike or mountain bike; and fashionable rainwear that can also be worn just fine in dry weather. And that's a good thing, because all of the Dutch know that it can rain at any time in our country. The trend in recent years is for rainwear to be increasingly fashionable, for wearing just fine as casual clothing. AGU is at the head of the pack in developing rain fashion.
Rain. Not the happiest subject, but at AGU, capricious weather is simply part of our everyday life. Although we cannot control the weather, we can choose to wear appropriate clothing. And just like how we leave the house in shorts and flip flops on sunny days, we think carefully about what to wear on the less pleasant days.
Wind and rain do not have to stop us from getting on our bikes, it’s just a matter of aligning your clothing with the elements. And at AGU we have been providing the right materials for more than half a century.
Our rainwear is divided into three different collections: Essential, Urban Outdoor and Commuter. With these separate collections, we can serve different groups of cyclists according to their specific wishes.
Essentials, everything you need against Mother Nature
Ever since we were founded in 1966, quality has been prime importance to us. We are therefore proud of the fact that this characteristic is still the basis of our products. You can see this clearly in the Essential line, which offers everything you need as a cyclist to arm yourself against capricious weather. The products feature clever details to make your ride more enjoyable and comfortable. Our wide range ensures that you have a choice of products that fulfil your wishes and meet your requirements.
Should you opt for rain pants or a jacket, or go for the complete suit? Do you want something sturdy and durable or lightweight and compact? Would you like a lining, extra pockets or specific practical details? You decide.
With a product line that offers protection from top to toe, you have a good basis for comfortable cycling all year round, whatever the weather that Mother Nature throws at you.
Urban Outdoor, practical and stylish
High-quality, technical rainwear is no longer just the territory of the passionate all-weather cyclist or the fanatical mountain biker, as ever more people place great value on a jacket that is both breathable and waterproof. However, this has also created a desire for the clothing to look stylish as well, thus making it a multifunctional item. A trendy jacket that you are happy to wear, come rain or shine.
Our Urban Outdoor items have many technical features that ensure increased comfort, but do it in a stylish and trendy fashion. Although the jackets have a fashionable appearance, the design is based on their use while cycling. You can see this in subtle design details. For example, the sleeves are slightly longer, so that they protect the hands during a rainstorm, and many jackets have a light loop on the back, where you can attach a light. The playful design inside the jacket also hints at its use for cycling, but the items from this range are specifically intended for people who like to look good.
You no longer have to choose between practical and stylish clothing, as the products from the Urban Outdoor line are a perfect combination of the two. We have used top-quality materials, with a matte finish and unobtrusive reflective elements. Tough, no-nonsense designs ensure that when you reach your destination, you are dry and also look stylish: when fashion meets function.
The growth in e-bikes and speed pedelecs, which can be ridden faster, has altered the demands placed on good rain gear. Clothing has to be able to withstand rain at higher speeds, so that you can stay dry all the way to your destination. For this reason, in the Commuter collection we have only used breathable Poray 10,000 material, which is especially windproof and waterproof.
Commuter, the new standard for commuting

This collection of high-performance rainwear was developed for cyclists who take their daily commute to and from work seriously. Cyclists who place high demands on their equipment and brook no compromise, but simply want the very best.
We gave our designers carte blanche to seek the best materials and technologies to develop the ultimate rain collection. This has resulted in an unparalleled product line that we are extremely proud of and with which we have been able to raise our quality standards yet again.
The entire collection is made of high-quality and technically advanced 3-layer material, which is not only robust and weather-resistant, but also very breathable and agreeable to wear. The bonded fabric details, water-repellent YKK zippers and taped seams give the garments a tough and high-tech look, and ensure optimal performance. The Commuter items are all produced in black, with added anthracite-coloured reflective details that provide 360-degree visibility. The fit is specifically tailored for use on a bike, but designed in such a way that you also look good when you are not cycling.
The top item is our one-piece – a complete rain suit in which the pants and jacket form a whole. This has the advantage that you only have to put on one item of clothing and rain can no longer saturate between jacket and pants. You simply step into and out of the suit, which keeps you really dry due to its breathable, windproof and waterproof characteristics.
