An insulating and extremely lightweight layer for cooler rides.

Brevet Insulated GiletA$172.50

Please select an item above

Lightweight, packable and water-resistant insulation

Long-distance riders often encounter a wide range of conditions, so a lightweight layer that is both warm and packable is essential. The Insulated Brevet Gilet provides exceptional warmth, while highly breathable Polartec Alpha insulation ensures you won’t overheat during harder efforts.

The gilet features reflective detailing for visibility, and a water-shedding DWR (durable water repellent) coating for added protection in rain showers. Thanks to the hydrophobic properties of the Polartec Alpha insulation, the gilet wont saturate in the same way that natural down insulation will, and is quick drying. Mesh side panels stretch to fit over full pockets and a zip placket keeps out the wind, and when not in use, the gilet rolls into an elasticated loop at the neck to stay tightly stored. Please note that the two-way zip included on this product at launch has been replaced by a standard zip.

Karen Whittier, product manager for insulation at Polartec, explains the science behind Polartec Alpha:

Polartec Alpha was engineered as an active insulation to regulate core body temperatures during both dynamic and static activities. This ‘adaptive’ breathability helps eliminate the need for shedding or adding layers while on the move, making it ideal for cycling.

By keeping moisture vapour moving freely through the fabric, it increases overall air exchange and drastically speeds up dry times, providing thermal regulated comfort. Polartec Alpha is also highly compressible, made with a stable core… that prevents ‘fibre migration’ to keep a uniform consistency, even after heavy wear and repeated laundering.

FEATURES

  • Quick drying and hydrophobic Polartec Alpha insulation
  • Self-storing into band at neck
  • DWR (durable water repellent) coating
  • Wind resistant fabric
  • Dropped rear hem for added protection
  • Reflective detailing throughout
  • Stretch side panels to accommodate full jersey pockets

FABRIC

  • 100% Nylon

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great detail Haven't worn yet but fit seems really nice. I am usually a female small and bought the XS,I like it because it isn't as long as the other brevet Gilets, looking forward to wearing it at the weekend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality product I never knew I needed As the temperatures change in England this garment is great a keeping you warm before you need to change over to a wind jacket. I run warm when cycling and it's a great addition to a long sleeved jersey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality. I’ve only used this once so far due to the great weather we’ve enjoyed so later into autumn but it was warm. It certainly keeps the wind off and I suspect that this will be my go to gilet when the temperatures start struggling to reach beyond single figures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone needs one of these. After getting suitably drunk whilst on holiday, the week before my first 100-mile sportive in 3 years, I convinced myself that a this Gilet would make my day that bit more comfortable. Let's be honest, a fair few quid later and nearly losing a limb to my other half for spending a three-digit figure on 'a top with no sleeves' (as she saw it), the morning of the event came round. With a distinctive early-Autumn chill in the Midlands air, this Gilet kept me warm and comfortable (used with arm warmers too) until the first feed stop; at which point the temperature had come up nicely so could be rolled up and packed in the back pocket without any fuss. Typical Rapha quality and good looks; would recommend to anyone.

The medium in the pro range is perfect for me, I have small for the city range and borderline small-medium for the classic range. Which size do you recommend for this gilet?

Asked by: Txema
The Medium fit should be a good fit. This Garment has a more relaxed fitting then the Pro Team Range and is more in line wit the Classic Range.

Hi, I'm looking for a gilet to accompany a lightweight jersey when cycling early morning in spring when temps are about 10-15 degrees- would you suggest insulated or standard gilet? 

Asked by: Nick101
As we all regulate temperature differently it is hard to advice on the temperature range for individuals and differing exertion levels will also affect its properties. For cooler temperatures we would certainly recommend the insulated Gilet as it does provide extra protection from the outside elements.

If worn in heavy rain, will the insulation still provide warmth?

Asked by: Bugs
Hi, this gilet is not intended for use as an outer layer in heavy rain. It is water-resistant and Polartec Alpha is one of the quickest drying insulation materials available.

I have a brevet ladies windstopper jacket size med which is a perfect fit . What size would I need in the brevet insulated gilet?

Asked by: Helen 51
Hi, this gilet has a snug fit but this is not a women's specific product and so you may need to size down one size. As always, we do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.

How does the brevet insulated gilet compare to the woman's rapha gilet in terms of fit in the hip and waist? As far as chest measure a medium insulated gilet is apparently equal to a large woman's. Just want to make sure I get sizing correct.

Asked by: lady_colnago
Hi, the Brevet Insulated Gilet has a straighter fit that does not come in as much at the waist and out at the hips like the Women's Rapha Gilet.
