A beautiful merino wool layer for busy days on and off the bike

Functionally, merino wool is the most beautifully soft and moisture friendly natural fibre there is. It works to move perspiration, but also keeps you warm and fresh. Paired with a Rapha base layer, the Breton Sweater is a perfect mid– or outer–layer for commutes and active days where you need exceptional comfort, breathability and insulation. The sweater has a fully fashioned construction for a great shape and fit.

Stylistically, the Breton stripes, worn by early pioneers of road cycling such as the magically named Hippolyte Aucouturier, was originally popularised by artist Paul Gauguin (adopting the work clothes of Breton fishermen) and then in turn Pablo Picasso, and other style icons like Brigitte Bardot. So there’s plenty of romanticism as well as functionality in this wonderful garment.

At the end of each sleeve, a double layer ‘signalcuff’ features both hi-vis and reflective yarns, which can be revealed to offer added visibility when riding in low light. Simply turn back the cuff to reveal the hi-vis bands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So flattering and comfortable! This immediately became a staple in my wardrobe, because it is so flattering and comfortable. I even wore it on a 19-hour flight from San Francisco to Singapore. It is perfect for the climate in my hometown of Portland, Oregon, 10 months out of the year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I want to sleep in it! I love this jumper! I had to get one size up as they didn't have it in my size but I am totally ok with that. It's a very comfortable and faltering jumper and this colour just pops! So tempted to buy the other colours now. I have a feeling I am going to wear this jumper to death!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely style and high quality fabric. Looks very stylish, smart, and cosy. The fabric is such lovely quality and it hangs really nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sweater I love this sweater. Its a really nice weight and a flattering cut. The material is warm but breathable although it is a little delicate. Its snags easily so be careful! The cut of this sweater is much better than the previous version, which ran large and was rather unflattering. This one runs a little small. If you want a "race fit" your normal size is fine but if you want a casual look I' suggest going up a size. I'm 5'7, 120 lbs and normally wear a small but the medium in this was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Sweater! I ordered the Merino Breton in gray. As usual, Rapha products are consistent in their sizing, and a women's medium once again fit me perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great understated jumber I bought this for my wife - and it's become her go-to casual friday jumper of some jeans.
